I detect an anomoly in the continuity of forum space-time.

It is becoming increasingly probable that the end result of the phenomenon will be the cold deaths of all forums as we know them due to entropy being accelerated by the excited actions of posters themselves.

The reasons for Vietnam going in were multiple. Among other things, the Khmer Rouge were friends of China, while Vietnam had snubbed China to be friends with the USSR. Vietnam went into Cambodia. China responded by attacking Vietnam. I doubt the US would have gotten involved in all of that, seeing how Vietnam didn't leave that place until the late 80s.
I heard Pol Pot was just a racist old peasant who hated the ethnic Vietnamese, and thus proceeded to butcher as many as he could on his watch (as well as anyone wearing a watch, glasses, a doctorate- etc) and that the Vietnamese invaded and took em out to help the Cambo-vietnamese and prevent Khmer Rouge raids into Vietnam.

When it was all over, we heard no tales of thousands of non ethnic-Vietnamese being slaugtered in Cambodia, or any other massacres. Strangely Britain and the US still blank the counrty, giving it the Cuba-treatment coz they can't stand to look at the tiny-weeny country of mostly jungle (and wide patches of toxic-earth) that beat Yankyland down so blatantly for all the world to see.

[two-fingered-wave]
Strangely, America (who didn't even want to fight the Nazi's at first- and then had to after Pearl Harbour coz Japan and Germany were allies) has never fought a war to prevent massacres, tyranny or oppression, they've only ever fought wars becouse they feared communist revelution gaining credibility (sometimes, just the idea of a socialist agenda gaining popularity was enough) or becous they wanted to make some kind of point (Kosovo for instance- I sincerely doubt they really gave a flying fuck about the Kosovar Albanians, perhaps they wanted to make an example to others) .
A glance at America's positions in Johannesbourg this year- and in UN proposals in general is consistant, they have no interest in freedom, mass-health or mass-food availability in the developing world etc, and the last thing the USA would ever EVER do- would be to fight any kind of WAR for any such cause.[/two-fingered-wave]


[micro-rant]
America's philosophy is to keep the gaps between rich and poor as wide as ever, to keep industry and the corporations in charge, to keep the "3rd World" crappy, poor and under developed, and to engender throughout the world- not democracy per se, as compliance to America's wishes. [/micro-rant]

Anyone who thinks any different is just sweet or naive and probably both.

I don't know Qweeg.

Sometimes you come up with interesting stuff that has merit and sometimes I think you got hit in the head with a rock.

Some of those last statements were abit off the rockpile.

But thats what ubertrolls do now, don't they.

You just love to keep this going, don'tcha?

Sorry NYE and Chris. I wanted to keep this up there as well, just to see where it would lead to. It's funny.

I dunno what's wrong with me, if I got some kinda problem with America, or am angry or jealous or what, but everytime somebody plops a political issue in front of me

Qweeg > America

is all I seem to do am I sick? I blame my socialist history teacher in-- 'high school', and that game I used to play were you find a big sleeping dog and a long pocky stick.

By the way, I'm off the rocks now.

When I hear on the news something like the following...

There is a guy from Vegas running for congress, who thinks that offering to pay Mexican Nationals who are in the US illegally $1000 to go "home" and then tatoo them so that they could never come back...

...I can only shake my head and wish that our gov't were as ruthlessly competent as Qweeg makes us out to be...

No, Venom when are you going to learn...

The cost doesn't matter.

When you are tattooing them you need to infect them with mutant strains of some virs du-jour so that they will die within 36 hours of being dumped back in Mexico, thus showing graphically what will happen to you if you go to the U.S.

Due to economic constraints and possible infection spreading to the US we've had to abandon that plan.

I mean...umm...I never said anything.

I don't know how this guy in Vegas expects to get his lawn mowed if he did that.

A microrant is a rant that lasts for one paragraph or less (if I didn't show restraint- the rants and violent outbursts would flow for pages).

The UK was thinking of doing the same thing to asylum seekers or immigrants over here too, paying them to fuck off I mean

All this immigration control stuff is as practical as trying to keep geese from migrating south or African Killer Bees from spreading through America in my opinion. Migrating is what large human populations have always done. Except for the Mauri of NZ, who are a boring stay-at-home lot and never go anywhere.

Link to what? I can't rember what dangerous fringe faction in the UK was pushing for the pay'n'go immigration policy, I just read it in a newspaper somewhere- I don't think the proposal got any further then being proposed.

The comment about Mauri's is me being funny, yeah like the population of the largetest remotest island on earth is populated with people who have always stayed at home my ass.
