Wow, the USA is a real asshole from way back.
Haha fuck you Japan...
we are there to protect the brown people.
pretty sure Bangladesh has military bases in Europe somewhere
We even have one in a country we don't have diplomatic relations with ....Cuba
we are usually hated by many of the locals where we have bases. they love our money of course, but some of the lovely young local women become whores and make 10 times what the local males can make. tends to cause some tension.
The Koreans want to develop nuclear weapons to protect themselves in the event that we do leave (it was a major issue in their last presidential election), and the Japanese and Germans can't be trusted. That base in Turkey needs to go so Putin can invade their asses, though.
P.S. MatthewT is a height racist.
Shut up and do what yer told.
Otherwise we're gonna drop bombs on you.
this is news to you? the USA has been the premier imperialist nation for the past 100 years. we do what all imperialist top dogs do; it's part of the imperialism that created the country, and all of our competition wants the opportunity to do the same thing, especially those in the middle east.
you don't think we are imperialist?
Times change. The world has seen a protracted era of relative peace since the last great war. There are many, many young male lives that have been spared the ugliness of war. The US has shouldered a heavy financial burden for this peace. US businesses have also reaped many rewards from this expenditure. It has all kind of rolled into one huge mass of corruption, The military-industrial complex is too big to fail.
Don't worry, when the Ottoman Empire 2.0 gets fired up I'm sure I'll be proven wrong and we'll all see that U.S. Imperialism really was keeping peace loving Muslims down and the world worse for it.
when you have no real competition these kinds of things grow. we are and have been the sole superpower on the planet since the early 1980s. you put all that power into the hands of a democratically elected president and it becomes very easy to get the growth of this kind of country management. same thing happens within corporations whose CEOs believe they are god within their walls. they use their power to legitimize otherwise unethical actions.
