Dont get me going on so called "democracy" lol
the problem is you guys see enemies everywhere you look -these days very few countries attack other countries -most of the problems are internal and should be dealt with internaly.
from kenny

Fact is kenny,enemies are everywhere, however unlike your mind set before ww2 where you would have beleaved that this small movement called the nazies wasnt a threat and should be left aloan, current nations have learned from this and will hammer potentual threats before the germinate into a threat big enough a drongo like you finally relises it.

As for your comment about the US retracting its forces and letting the world go into every man for hime self?? well I wonder how fast you`d retract that statment if New Zealand was attacked.

You know dam well Aust & the US wouldnt allow that.

BTW for god sake dont start with the "USA saved the world" B.S again the one and only reason you entered WW2 was coz the japs attacked pearl - up until then you were happy to watch the world burn as you sold them the arms and leased them ships .
from kenny

Wrong again champ, sure the jap attack might have been what pushed the US into the war faster than they wanted but they were always going to enter at some stage because they recognised a succesfull campaign from japan and germany would change the face of the world in a way that would have hurt more than just US interests.

Also if what you say is correct then why did the US go to europe ? why not just club the japs then call it quits ?

It's kinda ironic that the USA will end up having more troops in asstralia than the assies have in Afghanistan!
from yank oliver

LOL......yes very true, we dont have a huge military yank but we do punch well above our weight and no matter what campaign we`re in we`re always at the pointy end with your special forces.

OZ, UK & US special forces are normally the 1st in.

yank -its funny how you think the USA has to get involved in every countries politic- you say you need to do to help others -however most countries can solve they own problems the Former USSR is a good example -when a system does not work it sooner or later fixs itself.

The first attack in the Gulf of Tonkin was real, the second wasn't. The ship that was attacked was doing some electronic surveillance on N. Vietnam.

As for WWII in Europe, the Germans declared war on us due to a pact with Japan.

Simple to answer-
1-Vietnam -American desperate to holt the growth of communism(reds in your bed?)
2- kawait -oil
3-libya-oil
4-panama - Ever heard of the panama Canal ??and the importance to US trade ?(yes and to world trade).
5-Afganistan- vast mineral wealth and the hunting down of Osama -now face saving (my opinion only)It seems China is also in Afganistan in a big way yet they dont seem to have too many problems.
Dont forget Iraq -again oil - the US screwed up first supporting sadam then when he could not be controled getting rid of him -BTW hows that situation working out ?? i do beleive its worse there now than before you interfered .
Now tell me how many countries America has helped that has nothing that America wants or needs -for as the worlds unelected pokice force you took your sweet time getting into serbia -African nations -nah screw them ,after they kill each other you will just walk in and help yourself lol.
For every $1 the US spent in Iraq American big bussiness is beleived to have reaped $1.30 -good money during a depression.
And finally New Zealand and Samoa are like brothers -so to answer such a silly question would be a waste of time -but i am happy we can have a good conversation without resorting to insults cheers.
