This is an argument of your own fabrication. No one is talking about complete disarmament...except you.

Because electing a black president automatically means that racism is over?

And how would you feel if China decided that it was there job to police the world and spread their idea of "right and wrong" via mititary action, covert overthrowing of other forms of government, economic sanctions, etc? Shouldn't we have the right to govern ourselves as we see fit, even if other countries don't agree with our way of doing things? Shouldn't we have the right to appoint leaders of our choosing?

No one asked us to "police" the world. We took that on ourselves and we used some pretty nasty means to do so. That some countries resent us for that shouldn't be surprising, let alone difficult to understand.

Indeed we are or are you conveniently ignoring the fact that we're the one's building a "missile defense system" in Poland?

Their reaction to our aggressive action makes them untrustworthy. Got it.

Except that our reaction to North Korea and Iran indicate otherwise. You aren't terribly consistent.

Nope, only that if we hadn't backed Germany into a corner after WWI, WWII may have been avoided. Maybe Hitler would have risen to power anyway and nothing would have changed, but the circumstances would have been different.

Cerainly not any of the illegal conflicts that we've been involved in since WWII.

Again, all videos would be put together by someone. Unless of course they make themselves.

My video, which you still obviously haven't bothered to watch, is a clip from a movie. Since movies tend to be "put together" by movie crews, you've definitely got me on the "something someone put together" thing. Congratulations.

No, it's much more entertaining watching you trying to discount the content based on what you guess it was about (without having actually watched it).

Do you frequently refer to people who are older than you as "young one"?

I'm getting the impression that you don't respond to posts so much as pick out random words and then rant about something completely unrelated. I don't think it will be much longer until you go back on my ignore list.

Hint: the word "fail" was used in reference to your continued use of logical fallacies. I didn't mention Iraq anywhere in there.

No one brought that up except you. Once again we find you rallying against an argument that no one made.
