everyone here already knows that my loyalties lie with the jap, then it would have to be euros, then domestics.

It's good to have favorites. Finding reasons to hate that which isn't your favorite is retarded.

I like all of them, and have owned something from each of them. Hell, I've had some of each at the same time. Currently I have American, British and Italian here with me. I have American and German projects in storage. I have favorites from every country and virtually every manufacturer. Some of teh cars I've had have been built from parts from all over. iv'e had Japanese engines in british sports cars, an American engine in a Japanese GT, and a german engine in an American coupe. I'd have no more problem putting a Mazda 20B TT rotary in a '65 Mustang as I did putting a modded Ford 5 liter V8 in my RX7.

Blind brand or nationalistic loyalty when it comes to manufactured products is narrowminded at best.

If the world would quit looking to the US as a rich uncle, or muscle bound friend, we wouldn't be so "proud."

well i dont think we would if we could get away with it. the problem is that you like to butt in, well your leadership do any way, bring back woodrow wilson he was a professor from harvard a thinker not like bush the puppet for big business.

Im not sure that we do look to the usa as a rich uncle we just want you to take responsibility for some of the problems that you have caused, and may be there are a number of them so thats why your forever trying to sort things out.

look at isreal for example, if the usa stoped being so one sided with its aid then there wouldnt 1/2 the probelms that there are.

and before any one argues this
The international comiunity gives $297 for every palaseian and the same for a isreali then the usa comes along and goes ooh here you go israel have $3000 per head as long as you spend it with any one of these us companies. Now on this list there are a large range of compaies but due to the nature of the regionabout 20% of it is spent on defence.

Now if you are an american the best way to imagine this is think about all those mexicans you pay peanuts to make thigs for you, well imagine tomorrow some one decided that from next week 50% of the usa was going to now be mexican terotory and not just a nice neat cut but some from the north some from the south aand to add insult to injury they are going to inforce this by shooting you with lasers on sight and all you have are 9mm handguns. i think now you might start to see why there is a bit of tension.

the worst part is that the europeans and other arab nations try and resolve isues and build public buiuldings and the isrealis just go and blow them up with merkevas.

If the usa is seroius about peace in that region then get the guys in congress to stop signing the cheques because your paying for it.

Iraq well another cock up, you know that your goverment has just bought about 1.3 million pieces of body armour which are toally unsutable for peace keeping. and by the way they are $2500 per vest. you do the maths. The m16 is a spray gun, if you have ever tryed to shoot one acurately then you will know exactly what i mean. combine this with the need for good acuracy so you dont hurt civilans and ability to get in and out of vehicles then genrally its not exactly the ideal piece of equiptment.

then you have hummers, well i know you like your metal but its not a bright idea, its heavy and not evvective against RPG's now last time i looked how many RPG's are there in the middle east!

I am sure you will all know about colnel shrapnel of the india campaign in the 1790's well an rpg is basically a copper jet that will pentrate about 1-2 feet of armoured steel. As steel has a density of 8 then it could be interesting to try and move, but if your smart you dont protect agaisnt it on light vehiles and you dont use any metalic materials as they just turn into shrapnel. now this isnt very nice. Think about a metal box, imagine that part of the metal box gets drilled out, you end up with lots of filings, then put the filings in the box and rattle them around at 1000 mph and they bouce of the side of the box. scale it up and put some people in it! and what do you get 7 guys in a giant heated grit blasting machine where the grit goes through them and out the other side the n bouces of the wall and back through them, they end up with more holes in them than a tea strainer. Thats why if some one has died this way they never open the coffin as its a colection of parts not really a person.

I have...it's quite accurate.

You have some serious issues. First and foremost is jealousy towards Americans. While politics is crooked in every nation, the U.S. gets the cake since it is the biggest and strongest at the moment.
