DanEboy I am not against

DanEboy I am not against American people. I am not against Canadian people. I am just against supporting nation leaders, especially those of our collective countries and the UN. I've said this countless times. I am also fully aware that this way of 'living" I have been granted with is all thanks to the American elitists.

Greatest country in the

Greatest country in the world????? Americans ego is just ridiculous. I have nothing against Americans, I have been in US a number of times as a tourist and they have always being very nice to me and my family. However I think they are sometimes a little bit close minded and even ignorant in some of the things they say. For instance I am from Costa Rica (happiest country in the world according to studies search it on wikipedia haha) a peacefull (no army), democratic, free country and I have been asked more than once by americans while Im there "what it feels like to visit a free democratic country" which seems funny to me since in my country people enjoy a freedom that Americans only can dream of. Im not hating on Americans I like their people and enjoy watching their sports and movies Im just saying u need a lesson in humbleness.

American forgien policy is to

American forgien policy is to squash democractic elected leaders if they arent in our best intrest case in point, the documentary called The war on democracy by john pillager... We are trying to do to the middle east is what the have been doing to Latin American countries since the 50's.. Don't believe me google: America and democracy in Latin America...

Its a sad fact people don't realize the we are an empire that spend 3 times more on our military industrial complex than the rest of the world combined... This country is a war machine that uses popular culture, right/left win propaganda and the media to fool our citizens... No other country occupies the world like the United States and of course US military comes in different forms (NATO and UN)...

But, somebody has got to be the bad guy...

If America isn't the greatest

If America isn't the greatest counrty in the world, then who is?

And don't say Canada, because if they were to get into a actual war, they would get there @$$ kicked and beg America to help them.

so Jeff the size of your military determines how great

or bad the country is in your opinion? then america will always be number one in your opinion. many others think facts that determine our everyday quality of life are more important.

No, it doesn't determine how

No, it doesn't determine how good the country is. But if you are the greatest country in the world, you should at least have a good enough military to defend yourself.

america spends over

687,105,000,000 the rest of the world even amongst top 10 spends 61,285,000,000 huge difference canada is in top 15 in world in military so unless their fight is with the u,s they should be just fine breaking it down we spend 11 times as much as the rest of the world towards military exspenses which is ridiculus

Are you really measuring a countrys greatness on their military power??? according to that logic nazi Germany was one of greatest countries cause it took England, France, USA and especially Russia to defeat the Germans. Think a little before talking. A countrys greatness should be measured on their contributions to make the world a better place not on their killing potential.

They wouldn't stand a chance against any of them. Do you actually think Canada, would actually be able to win against China who has over a billion more people then them?

And btw I'm not judging a country on it's military power, I'm just saying the greatest country in the world should be able to defend itself against anybody.

why would they?

according to your lack of logic we would be seeing significantly more wars than occur. the object is to avoid war not get into them, are you aware people{ lots of people} die in wars? have you lost track of this fact, if you have you would be the perfect politician if you could get enough dumb people to vote for you

I agree, you should try to

I agree, you should try to avoid war if you can. And even though Canada is very unlikely to be in a big war like that anytime soon, it's still possible for another country to try to attack you.

Throughout history there have been wars for land, resources, or just to conquer them. It's not any different now.

Good Grief

New here.

Don't think I'll stay. I've enjoyed reading most of the threads, but I can't believe you guys are talking politics on a basketball site.

No one agrees on politics, it just makes people angry.

However, just to respond a little to what's been said.....I'm American-Norwegian, grew up in a household with different ideas than most American homes, with a Norwegian mother and an American dad. I heard both sides of the argument, America is a bully, America is the greatest...

Truth is, no nation is lilly white, not even America. Every country has it's warts, but only one is great enough to talk about them openly, with a free press, freedom of expression, the right to vote for who you want even if he's an idiot. Canada is not perfect, nor is America, not even Costa Rica. I've done a little traveling over the last 60 years, and America is the greatest country for ME. I've been threatened by border guards in Russia and Czheckslovakia and what was Yugoslavia, been behind the Iron Curtain when it was real. It sucked. It was horrible. It was evil. I was so dammed glad to cross into free Germany, I cried. I was free.

EVERY country has it's warts, even Canada. I love Canada, love the people. That doesn't make it perfect. I don't see any state in the Union trying to secede from the Union because they spoke a different language. Hell, they don't even speak French. Canada has had it's trouble with the Indians as well, to pretend it isn't so is sad. Go back far enough in any country, and there is someone who's been eradicated for land, or religion, whatever. America was the last great country on Earth to be settled, so the memory is fresh in our minds. It was not right, none of it is. History shows that it's happened time and time again in EVERY country, not just America. Get off the high horse, and get real. America admits it's mistakes, which is more than some countries who never make them. Yeah. Ok.

To compare the Nazi's with America...That just speaks perfectly about the intelligence of the source. If it were not for America, Canadians would be speaking GERMAN, and so would the rest of Europe. Face it, WE won the damn war, and I lost two uncles to the Nazi's in Norway. They believed in freedom, and gave their lives for it. My family in Norway was devastated by the Nazi's, so I have the right to say this. Anyone who compares the Nazi's with America is a fool, plain and simple. Tell me to my face that I'm like a Nazi. Go ahead. Hitler killed TEN MILLION Jews in less than ten years.....and other undesireables, like the handicapped. Visit Dachau, like I've done, and then tell me Americans do the same thing.

Bin Laden is dead and it's a good thing. Good riddance.

The only reason America spends so much money on it's military is because the rest of the world with a few exceptions...Can't defend themselves. So we have to, and I hate it. I hate seeing Americans killed in a rat hole of a country when the people don't care enough to defend themselves.

If you love your country, I'm all for it. Just don't tell me that yours is better than mine.

i cant let this go on anymore...

My wife and children are Jewish, I have Muslim friends and family, I have German born brothers from other mothers, my best friends growing up were 2 Koreans and one crazy ass Italian, I love Chinese food and culture and all in all I would love to live in Toronto Canada, my south American ancestry does not make me anymore or less American or human, I have seen lots of evil in my country, and I see it all over the world, if some people want to cheer the death of another human being than that's their choice, if some people want to point out the underlined factors that make the world so chaotic that's their right as well, we all do things that are in direct violation of the code of honor, we all have good and evil in us, this coming from an anti government/anti religion Scarecrow " This is the beginning of a violent end, the dawn of our destruction... "...this country has lots of flaws, lots of victory and defeat and sometime soon we will pay for our own crimes against humanity, if Bin Laden was a demon or devil in human form than our government was Lucifer's Chief of Operations, we drop bombs daily that kill women and children, we are all guilty of this, we stand by and watch them appoint dictators and destroy them in the same breathe once they lose their influence on the people, the truth is always ugly, what we must do is embrace the darkness because soon enough that darkness will engulf the world of man, a ruthless killer is dead , while the men that empowered him are becoming richer and more influential by the second, he was on Burn Notice and was since we pushed back the soviets and turned our backs on the Afghan people, 911 was a tragedy but one our government greatly benefited from, namely Bush/Chaney and their investment groups, war/death equals profit and we don't all have to own funeral homes to see it, there is a tide coming in and we all need to hold our breathe and embrace our fate...I'm fearful for the innocent children of the world because we the previous generations of Men have destroyed a planet that has provided us so much...

Oh Canada, my ancestors were

Oh Canada, my ancestors were 14/16th African slave decent, and cherokee and navajo. Also, my contemporaries still suffer from a rediculously skewed arrest to conviction rate, lower pay scale, overflowing prison population, and terribly underfunded schools, and the media here unanimously says things are getting better. So trust and believe, I know a little something about the hypocracy that my country engages in everyday.

But to me, this is about our preoccupation with hating each other while we all simultaniously kill the planet for the sake of money. The influence of the World Bank in Third World countries is so pervasive and mostly devastating to the majority of people in the country, it should be considered genocide. It's like Goldman Saxx, hedging bets against the morgage market when they we forcing it towards collapse. The wealthiest people in the world collectively inciting violence to cash in on it.

And there are plenty of genocides funded just this way, in South America, Africa, and Asia.. many times over First World "luxury items" (jewels, gold, oil, drugs), and no one knows, nor caares... Thats how I know the War on Drugs is a crock of &$#%#&@!. And the War on Terrorism. Way too much capital for the weapons manufacturers, drug lords, and law enforcement agencies. And don't get me started on the pharmaceutical companies and insurance firms.

All this, and we ignore the fact that our dependance on oil will kill us in 50 years. Our planets population has grown too massive without putting thoughts or plans on how to compensate, (like solar powered, sustanable farms everywhere in America for example). Insane ammounts of waste and polution, deforestation, chemicals, radiation... this way of living isn't sustainable.... we're on a crash course for something terrible, and fighting each other isn't going to matter when half the world is starving. Now is the absolute moment to start doing something, and preoccupying ourselves with just another pawn in the GLOBAL machine is ignoring whats really important.

Inside M-DYMES head... Here

Inside M-DYMES head...

Here is all the thoughts that rambled through my head as I watched our people celebrate...

1. We look like &$#%#&@! savages, it was like watching a damn campus college party because we assassinated Bin Laden. Many people felt it's great he is dead, but my lord do we have to celebrate an assassination in a greater fashion than 90% of the celebratory moments this country and its people encounter? Revenge, i guess in some eyes is great, but i kind of is disappointing to me to see it celebrated like this.

2. The beginning of the end? If Al Qaeda happens to obtain nuclear arms or enhanced chemical warfare, these dudes are not going to be afraid to use it against us and our people after this watching this unfold. In their eyes they even have more reason now to cause destruction to the US and various nations. Possible WWIII?

3. Is this another attempt at increasing patriotism so our government can once again rally its people into entering another war or take greater steps in our current battles? Its happened damn near every presidency within recent memory.

4. Show me the pictures, no check that, FACTUAL EVIDENCE, b/c after everything this government has done in the past, I want concrete evidence. Send me Bin Laden's head.

5. We focus all our efforts on killing one man, but we can't get &$#%#&@! water to people in New Orleans, wait till damn near the end of the Rwandan Genocide to make any presence in the ordeal, and we can't help free the people of Gaza? Are we really this centered upon only taking action in Middle East situations in countries filled with abundant resources of value? Oil is our primary objective if you ask me.

6. Bin Laden was chillin in a freakin mansion. Cave...Mansion...samething.

7. We made Al Qaeda. We funded these dudes to be our mercenaries before. We are partially responsible for given these dudes the power/resources they have.

8. If this was Obama's primary goal, can we focus on the damn economy now? Or are our efforts going to go even further into fighting battles anywhere but on our homeland.

Good boost for President

Good boost for President Obama and no doubt lots of Americans will see this as some retribution for 9/11. Here in the UK it has widely been reported and like the majority of you in the US, I hope this will speed up the peace process in the Middle East. But everyone will need to beware of any Al Qaeda backlash but lets celebrate this triumph for now!

Osama is just a figurehead

Osama is just a figurehead for Al Queda when it comes down to it. They will lose morale, but there will still be people straping bombs on themselves and killing themselves in the name of Allah. The war on terrorism can never truly be won because there is really no structure to it. In fact, it only makes it more dangerous and more unpredictable than ever because there is no "leader" and terrorist cells making moves on their own with no orders & retaliating on their own accord. The best thing we can do is cut off the people that supply these terrorists. We nailed one of the biggest black market arms dealers not too long ago. That is the only way they truly can be weakened.

When we no longer live in

When we no longer live in fear of terror, we no longer will have anything to fear. A war against terrorism is impossible. There will always be this idea of terrorism, just as surely as there will always be drugs. Having a war on terror or war on drugs is just stupid. Sure, you can win the small battles, but the war is something that can never be victorious. You can not defeat an idea or belief system. Those things are engrained in humanity, and unless we all end up getting killed off (which damn well could happen in this day and age, the way things are going) they will never disappear.

Funny...religion is the one thing that factions claim will save people. Yet it is peoples' reluctance to accept others' beliefs in varying religions that may end up killing us all.
