    If I were Abbott I'd make a commitment to reduce emissions to just appease Obama, and then once republicans win the presidency at the next available moment just do what Canada did and say sorry we aren't going to make the target.

    Exactly

    Remember in recent history the USA with their superior technology and carrier battle groups vs Korea and Vietnam could not win against a "inferior" less equipped army.

    "........with one arm tied behind their backs".

    BOTH could have been bombed back to the stone age, except for the possibility of WW3.

    MAD remember?

    A nuke on NYC will have your communist mates back in that stone age in an afternoon.

    ...as would a nuke on Tel Aviv would have your terrorist mates in the same age.



    "The Russians absolutely know where every CBG is even if they don't know where exactly the accompanying subs are even they aren't surfaced. They have live eyes on them most of the time."

    RUBBISH!

    correct they could not use Nukes however they tried bombing them back to the stone age with conventional bombs and it didn't work, when that failed they tried poisoning large areas of jungle, that didnty work and the stupid americans got their arses handed to them.

    Like I said just because they have a "technically" superior force does not guarantee victory, or North Korea and Vietnam would both be flying the red white and blue flags now, like south Korea who is still like Japan an occupied territory.

    I still maintain they are occupied countries, just like Iraq, Afghanistan as well. The US has large number of military equipment and personnel over there, and a lot of bases. They might think they are "free" but I would like to see what would happen if they told the USA to Get the Frack out.

    I guarantee you it wouldn't happen, the USA are pulling all the strings of these puppet governments

    American are war mongering pigs

    For your information komrade, the USA has dominated the world for 100+ years.

    Even now, your mates COMBINED are about HALF what the USA produce.

    ......and a military base is NOT military occupation, just ask Germany.

    A -- Singular military base may not be. But 45+( especially in a country as small as south Korea) with tens upons tens of thousands of boots on the ground certainly is, which is the case in Japan and Korea.

    Japan has over ten thousand Marines alone stationed there, let alone all other military personnel.


    Germany and other parts of the world as just as occupied Americans once in never leave, they are occupying scum

    I cant wait to see the day the US dollar is no longer the world reserve currency and their grip on power will be over along with it.

    DEATH TO AMERICA.

    This article is rather frightening if you're considering the issues surrounding Russia vs USA:

    The link mentioned is


    the most frightening aspect of the reported breakfast conversation is:

    Your precious US army couldn't even defeat a few farmers hiding in caves in the jungle, they have no hope against China and Russia.

    But the next war will be financial and technological initially Then the US will attack once backed into a corner and their dollar looses all value but wont prevail.

    Julie,


    Last post,

    Russian and Chinese spies have been stealing, and American and British traitors have been selling, western secrets ever since 1917.

    It will continue with the new tech of drones. No longer do the Yanks need 1000 B17s to zap a car or a factory. It can be done in an afternoon with a few (American) 'Reapers'.

    Russia will steal the tech and copy what it needs. They will NEVER overtake the Yanks at what they do best.

    But bet against the Yanks at your peril.

    All you need is the better strategy = Afghanistan , have the American war machine won
    What have they won ? the heroin trade :rolleyes:
    How many of the American generals have read "The Art of War " or Musashi's book of 5 rings , let alone really figure out the strategy

    I agree the russins wouldnt be silly enough to try again to take it.

    the USA supplied weapons to the Taliban to fight a gurella war against the Russians there. The Taliban are using the same tactics again now and still hold control over large parts of the country.

    Once the USA withdraw from there, like in IRAQ now with ISIS the Taliban will take control again in short order.
