our full military has like 2-3 million people (not all active or anything)...gotta love being a world power w/ 10000 nukes and a lot of lingering interests/influence/enemies.

yeah...

they really do. are you at all familiar with hilary (clinton) or condi?

so it was outlawed then finally made legal again? ha...sort of like that little experiment we had with prohibition back in the day

where do the british think their territory extends to that you disagree with?

Here is something from a poll on a website

Question: WHERE IS BRITAIN? :: Total Votes:49

Europe 35 [71.43%]
Part is in Europe 2 [4.08%]
Britain is just Britain - no Europe 12 [24.49%]

The 12 people who voted for the third opinion were British

here is a quote

Me "Okay can I British person, please tell me what Continent you are on then, if not Europe then where, Asia, Africa, South America, North America, Antarctica, Australia/Oceania?

Enlighten me "

British guy "The Continent of Great Britain. "

aww those silly brits, thinking they're so separate from europe, refusing to change money, etc

seriously though...i guess it's not in continental europe. maybe the question is worded in a confusing way?

^ Yes but could someone tell me what continent they are in?

They claim not to be in Europe, so where the hell are they?

Even though I only B'ed geography in the Junior, I am sure there is no continent of Great Britain

oh, the "stupid american" stereotype

the entire canadian culture is dependant on vehemently proclaiming they're NOT americans (we swear!). it's kind of cute


joke, joke

yes he's an idiot in my view...but even if a country elects what seems to be an idiot to the rest of the world, that does not mean a majority of those who voted for him are idiots. it's difficult to explain, but you really need to live in a country for awhile to understand the situation culturally, the mindset, the economic reality, the choices, the reasons people vote the way they do...it's extremely easy to judge as an outsider, and this is magnified greatly when it's such a globally important country as the US. you have to consider that the way the system is set up, only 2 people have any chance at any significant amount of votes (for the most part)...that there is still a lot of fear after 9/11. that most people feel iraq was a wrong decision but that any country is reluctant to change leaders in the middle of such a situation. that the dems had a very weak campaign, and that the masses *no matter which country you go to* will be persuaded by the group with better marketing and smear campaigns.

again i don't like bush particularly, but it's so much easier to judge from an outsider's perspective.

^ Ye, I guess you're right, it is much easier to judge things like that when you are a outsider
