LOL!

Yeah, the Indians would never use all those nukes that they are sitting on.

of course not. Because they are peace loving pacifists and have no need for weapons like nuclear weapons.. wait a minute...

Quit trying to beat up on the US because our freedoms promote wealth building opportunities for all of our citizens. And so many people want what we have, that they are willing to attack us to either get it or destroy it.

America is constantly under attack militarily, politically and financially. I like my way of life and I am willing to fight to keep it. What is the problem with that?

my point was to not discount the united states or any other country for that matter, but to make a statement about the human race. whether it is the united states, britain or the romans back in the beginning of time, our race is cruel, destructive and devious. we kill each other, we plot against other in our own race because our color, religion, philosophy, culture and political views are different. we attack and kill, we destroy the planet, we destroy and murder animals and wipe out many species....i chose the indians as a culture because indians in general are peaceful and compasionate people. they respect the earth, they respect the anilmal kingdom, they respect each other and other culutres and religions. i feel that the indians in general are a an amazing role model for the rest of the world to look up to...the united states has spent almost a trillion dollars in the war in iraq.....a trillion dollars to destroy, kill, mutilate, devestate an entire region. can you imagine if we spent a trillion dollars on research to cure aids, built farms in africa to feed the hungry and hospitals to heal the sick, built colleges and research centers instead of missle sites and destroyer ships. we are going backwards, not forwards in our quest to find utopia and peace on earth. due to our nature, our cultural and political differences, our religious philosophies that controls our destiny and philosophical behaviors, i really feel that all energy, finances and inteligence will forever be consumed by war, distrust for each other and hatred. imagine what our life would be like if there was harmony, love, peace and tranquility for each other, our animal kingdom and environment?

You got quote #3 wrong.

Instead of this:

"This record is not tainted at all. At all. Period."

Shouldn't it be this?

"This record is not tainted at all. At all. Asterisk."
