    Well, I think its a joke. I got sent the piccy. So I am unsure.

    I bet there are Americans who think like that. With a population of a errr a lot, there is bound to be.

    Then again there are people who think England still rules the world! It was a hefty empire mind you!

    Yep, as an american I can say that we generally don't think of anything outside of our country as being important. That map is dead accurate.

    As americans a good portion of us feel that we pull more than our fair share of weight around the globe and all of these other countries who like to criticize the US don't even come close to doing the things we do for others so to hell with them.

    "pull more than our fair share of weight around the globe"

    The problem is in the definition of that. There are those who would call your "pulling your weight", "throwing your weight around".

    I don't think most Americans believe in Dragons.

    We need to add more RED dots throughout South America and especially Panama, remember we invaded there in 1988.

    >>>The problem is in the definition of that. There are those who would call your "pulling your weight", "throwing your weight around".

    Why shouldn't we throw our weight around, let's add some more dots to the map of every country who recieves more than a billion dollars in aid from the USA every year - There are tons of countries around the world who couldn't exist without the USA footin there bill.

    The UN wouldn't exist without the US, NATO would have no bite without the US, Saddam would own Kuwait w/o the US, the Taliban would still rule Afghanistan, China would invade Taiwan, North Korea would've invaded So. Korea, the Soviet Union would still be menacing the world w/o the US, IRAN would own the Persian gulf w/o the US.

    That's just a small list - NO other country on earth gives more than the US.


    Let us attack IRAQ you european pussies... who do you think has and is footin the bill to keep saddam in line with the NO fly zones and military power in that region. Also, when we are done with IRAQ we will attack IRAN and then North Korea - that's just a heads up for all y'all - we just getting started.

    Don't flame, especially a mod.

    You're forgetting one thing on that map, Canada isn't Moose, it's United States II, or Jr, or girlfriend, or some such like that, shares best friend with England, cept Canda is smart can keeps its mouth shut about stuff.

    I always thought we were 'Beer At A Younger Age'.

    >>Go speak FRENCH... comeback when your country speaks one language.

    ... *laughs* ... What? ... Is that supposed to be:
    a) Offensive
    b) Relevant
    c) Intelligent
    d) None of the above <----- *hint hint*

    >>Canda is smart can keeps its mouth shut about stuff.

    Yes, I'm aware that there are a lot of A's in "Canada" (eh), but you cant just leave letters out of words simply because you feel you've put in enough of them... eh?

    Funny, not exactly the way I view the world, but humorous none-the-less.
