Are All US people do is to BOAST WHAT USA has done, WHILE promoting China to be the second largest economy, without looking at the rest of the world?

US HAD DONE MORE violences and WARS to cause vast number of innocent lives ON EARTH. US had lost more soldiers than China's and Russia's for the past 50 years. TO THIS TIME, AT PRESENT, US had done badly and worse than the Russians did in Afghanistan.

US did not win World War II, but the Russians and Chinese won the wars. They were the Russians' and the Chinese's wars, but not of the US, while US got in very late in Europe. Hitler Nazis were to attack Russia and Japan invaded China when Mao stopped the internal fighting and that was why Japanese were losing with no more soldiers and to join in so were to withdraw, as it was no need to drop atomic bombs to, yet Japan would lose out.

Japan in those days as the world's second in economy with the fantastic high technology, has been the dumbest to make its sorrow today by joining US to focus on North Korea, investing too much and buying Chinese too much, yet China'S military expansion and movement have caused concerns to Japan and some others in the region (but not North Korea to India, Vietnam and others) and to the world.

Japan's biggest failure has been LACKING the proper direction as following Bush's calling Axis-OF-EVIL, BY taking on North Korea

US Ivy League graduates went to work for the CIA, yet had come up with a lot of wrong and false data and information.

BUT the nature of being infinite big mouthing by telling that this world is this and that stable and glory because of it, is purely the fallacy of self-proclaiming as of not true facts, by not viewing the destructive effects done as an International outlaw in modern times.

You people don't get it--USA is exactly tearing down freedom nowadays within a democracy in the example of hacking and spying, but not enhancing freedom and liberty rights, and how the democracy is it when majority of Americans are against NSA snooping, not to mention vast world public also feel that way more than US people?

What freedom USA has given, to whom, with what democracy?
Germany wanted more medals in Olympics and bigger production by tearing down Berlin Wall to be one democratic Germany , as you think it came from US Reagan or Kennedy to send them democracy consultant. Everybody knows how to do democracy without USA and others else,as it has been how has been done in the world.

Gorbachev wanted to get rich while Baltic states,like Estonia , etc, wanted their own cultures,so that USSR was folded up for their own making democracy of Russia, as you think it came from Reagan again.

What freedom was to Vietnam as US was a total disaster since lost more than 56,000 soldiers in Vietnam war?

What freedom and democracy were to Iraq, when today is still the disaster of every day bombing in Iraq after 11 years, generated from Bush lying about WMD to invade Iraq?

You people appear to say that People's grand-father clocks and houses they build, are coming from USA.

You keep telling third world burning villages, without mentioning USA burned more villages globally and inside too in the old time wild west chaos, and by assaulting tens of millions around the world in last 50 years.

WHILE you say the world this and that freedom and democracy are from USA as is not true, but you neglect how great damages it has done, from Vietnam to Iraq to itself.


The democracy of the world and US oppose Obama as the radical Neo-extremist in his doing.

US is facing stiff competition, by just looking at the Obama health care-- being ranked AT 27 POSITION. US enhances China to this point of embarrassing itself, while US is no way it ranks among top 10 in many areas.

Either India or South Korea or JAPAN and Australia GET TOGETHER WITH CHINA, US is in no way that it can get ahead. If Russia joins in, that would be much worse for US.

Not even close- perhaps by a factor of several thousand.

How many million Russian soldiers died in WWII? China in the Korean war?

HAHAHAHAAHAHAHAH!@ You.

Have you fallen behind in some kind of lie quota?

Russians lost 15,000+. Dead.

And ran away, accomplishing not one of their objectives.

Religions ar cults of liars who lie harder and harder to cover up for their previous lies. All the values they preach - honesty, compassion, love - all lies.

Theirs books command em to hate atheists without ever knowing them. They cannot face up to this dishonesty because its it's mental illness that is too arrogant to seek treatment.

No one needs to ask what your religion is. You're a big @sshole and everyone automatically assumes you're a Christian.

This is typical christian behaviour, intolerance of anyone not of their faith is rife. Intolerance of anyone not of their sect (and there are around 40,000 christian sects) is rife.

Maybe it's because of your T-shirt or the NAZI tattoo you have over the bridge of your nose?

Since you said "all" people, we can say you include other atheists.

I doubt there is anyone less tolerant of others than you, Skanque.

You insult people you don't know and that doesn't include your anti theist antisemitic behaviors.

Look forward to the monarchy putting on the taxpayer- sponsored christening, now that the DNA test turned out positive, it seems, for Prince Billy.

Ignored on the ground that you started the insults, you don’t like the results of your abuse then that’s just tough
