Wrong, as expected. You are yet another one who falls for the christian lies and you lie for that belief in the face of FACT. The fact that christian liars are now being exposed as the liars they are ought to make you seriously consider the lies you plagiarise. Just results has already had is nose wiped in his lying sh|te, looks like you are next on the list

Yes, this is true, eventually after much embarrassment the US contributed more than the UK.
US total expenditure on the 2004 tsunami = 2.875 million (dollars)
UK total expenditure on the 2004 tsunami = 796 million (dollars)

The US has around 5 times the population and is constantly shouting how it is the richest country in the world and yet could only manage 3.6 times the aid effort. Well done… However it does explain how you can make the richest nation claim

So lets look at the per capita contribution

US $9.81
UK $13.20

Sorry, what were you saying, not sure I correctly heard your ranting lies about counting it

Maybe if your country had given Bradley Manning some clothes and a bed from day one people would think you were more serious about being a good country.

Not really, but we are less likely to abuse our prisoners.
There is a lot of information exchanged that you won't get to hear about.

I'm not interested in your hang ups. Sweden and the UK are considered more democratic. You're going to have to ignore the whole world - like religitards usually do.

Very likely, UK has loose lips.

And UK 's record on torture of prisoners is no better than that of the USA.

Both are monarchies.

If I need an opinion on bringing a man to climax quickly, I shall call you.

If you want to insist a country like the UK- most of its Parliament are APPOINTED and has a Queen as a head of state is democratic, you can see why I'll point to the fact you don't know what you are talking about.

sun doesn't rise

Sweden is a parliamentary democracy, which means that all public power proceeds from the people. At the national level, the people are represented by the Riksdag (Swedish parliament) which has legislative power. The Government implements the Riksdag's decisions and draws up proposals for new laws or law amendments.
