Thread Name: BS: Bush's *Big Stick* Foriegn Policy...
Subject: RE: BS: Bush's *Big Stick* Foriegn Policy...
I understand your viewpoint, Troll...although we see it differently. I don't see the USA as a "paper tiger" at all, and I'd be very surprised if anyone did, because the USA is an exceedingly aggressive nation which is in the habit of bombing and invading places, and has been for a long time, not because those places are a real threat to the USA, but because they are an opportunity to control markets and resources...if they will just surrender themselves to America's complete control willingly.

If not, vilify them, embargo them, sanction them, threaten them, bomb them, and invade them.

That's classic big power imperialism. It's been practiced by every major power...lately most notably by the USA.

That's not a paper tiger, it's a ravening beast.

But I know we won't agree on that. Well, it's okay. We don't have to agree on everything, after all.

You figure the USA is protecting you, so naturally you are in support of their foreign policy. I understand that, and I respect your right to have that opinion if it makes sense to you.
