The latest international polls reveal that the US has been on the wrong course with their interventionist military policies.
Their hypocritical stance is making them lose face in the world:

and if the US military wasn't in Thailand right now, you're country would be overrun by Islamofascist terrorists.

You're welcome. :evil:

Ahahaha...
Goodness your head is so big it won't fit through the door! :lol:

Your arrogant ignorance is rather amusing, but the thought of uninformed people like yourself constituting the US armed forces makes me very uncomfortable.

Seems you haven't followed the news concerning Thai-US relations. Wink1
Who cares what they think. In fact next time a tsunami strikes we should keep our money and demand our tax payer money not go to ungratfeful people. Why don't you have a poll on who the islamo nazis like, Americans or Europeons?
Morning, Indy. Still a little sleepy, because you don't make much sense yet? Are you aware that Michael Schumacher, a single person, German, donated more money to the tsunami victims than the whole country of America? Your appearance was the usual disgrace, too little help, and to late. Were you first verifying whether the tsunami was the handiwork of Islamofascist terrorists and Bush didn't know anyway what a tsunami is?

stroll, I second your opinion. :lol: They have no idea how right Kerry was with his evaluation of American soldiers. Understanding what's going on in the world isn't their purpose. That would actually be very, very, very contraproductive.

Well, Indy, you know, I don't "have a poll", I just quoted from a newssource. :lol:

I note you've moved on from "Islamofascists" to "islamo nazis", any such poll might be viewed as just a little skewed, don't you think? :roll:

Have you taken your meds this morning, or not yet?

What a liar. He donated $10,000,000. The US donated FAR more than that. Perhaps if you said he gave the highest of any sports figure, you'd have some credibility.

Go back to your nap or meds. When you wake up, bring real facts next time.
Not bad. Wink1 Would never have expected you know (or find) the number. Might take back the Kerry-thing.
Quote:On 27 December UN Undersecretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs Jan Egeland reportedly categorised charitable contributions of rich countries as "stingy" [4], but was widely misinterpreted in the press as categorising the response to the tsunami in this manner [5]. Speaking at a press conference later, Mr. Egeland stated, "It has nothing to do with any particular country or the response to this emergency. We are in early days and the response has so far been overwhelmingly positive" [6].
The US government, led by President George W. Bush and Secretary of State Colin Powell, reacted with annoyance to the statement and on 28 December added another USD 20 million to their original pledge of USD 15 million, bringing the total up to USD 35 million, not including direct aid to be rendered by naval vessels dispatched to the region[7]. On December 31 the US pledge was increased ten fold to USD 350 million [8], with President Bush saying that that amount will probably increase. President Bush also signed a decree ordering flags to be flown at half-mast during the first week of the new year.

you find a list how much different countries donated. USA leads with $2,825bln. Australia and Germany at about $1,300bln. Russia $0,002bln.
There was a long thread on this subject at the time.

The usual suspects praising themselves for their generousity, whereas it turned out even the Saudis donated more per capita in relation to GDP, if I remember correctly.

Anyway, that's all a moot point now, it's a disgrace how the donations were mismanaged and diverted by the countries affected.

Money is one thing, which allows the contributer to sit back and pat themselves on the backs. However, other costs also include equipment AND man hours, which are also of great value. And in this respect the US and Aussies are the world leaders with this concern. Both countries have contributed billions of dollars in resources, OTHER than money to the effort.

Funny how you Euros conveniently forget this fact. So much for intellectual honesty. This is why I have little respect for Euro-weenies. Buggering Hypocrites!

Indy4Bush, did you ever study gee-o-graphy? Are you referring to the Muslim province of Acheh in INDONESIA, two countries away from Thailand? Where it is reported that possibly maybe some portion of the donations to tsunami survivors may have disappeared among the long-time secular conflicts there?

KenRI, you're usually one of the more level-headed posters here, but you apparently are confused about US-Thai relations.

There are no US military bases here. The few guys in Bangkok are liaisons. In fact, when the September 19, 2006 military coup occurred, the Bush administration was required by law to cancel its military aid to Thailand, which amounted to something like 26 million dollars per year - nothing, even in this country.

The country is not being overrun by terrorists, even though the US military hasn't been in Thailand to a great extent since the Vietnam war. Okay?

Back on topic: the BBC poll, conducted with help from the University of Maryland, finds opposition to America's foreign police, as does the Pew Research Group.

Somehow, I thought that there were still one or two airbases left in Thailand. Am I incorrect here?
Forgive me, oh Fit. I guess the ACTIVE DUTY Special Forces Soldier who is a friend of mine and was there 2 years ago training Thais in unconventional warfare so they can fight terrorism must have been lying to me.
I'll be sure to show him your appreciative 'thank you' for all the work he's and his men have done.
I do not know if there is a base there anymore, but there sure are American troops there. You just don't see them because it ain't 2 or 3 1000 troop combat brigades.
It doesn't take many SF troops to train many. (that's why they're SF because they're that good)

Hmm, I though the only Germans there were ones hoping to buy sex from young girls who had been made homeless by the tsunami??

Michael Schumacher sounds like someone to be admired and he has my respect.
I suppose that unless you live in Israel, the US, or perhaps GB, you have no reason to fear the Islamic kooks, right?

Now, if you live in Thailand, and have all those supple and willing little girls to keep you distracted, it does not make any difference, correct?

Quote:Ahmadinejad: Be assured that the US and Israel will soon end lives
Yaakov Lappin

Israel and the United States will soon be destroyed, Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Tuesday during a meeting with Syria's foreign minister, the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB) website said in a report.

"Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad… assured that the United States and the Zionist regime of Israel will soon come to the end of their lives," the Iranian president was quoted as saying.

"Sparking discord among Muslims, especially between the Shiites and Sunnis, is a plot hatched by the Zionists and the US for dominating regional nations and looting their resources," Ahmadinejad added, according to the report.

The Iranian president also directly tied events in Lebanon to a wider plan aimed at Israel's destruction. He called on "regional countries" to "support the Islamic resistance of the Lebanese people and strive to enhance solidarity and unity among the different Palestinian groups in a bid to pave the ground for the undermining of the Zionist regime whose demise is, of course, imminent."

Ahmadinejad has threatened the State of Israel with annihilation several times in recent months, and has recently added the US and Britain to the list of countries he says will be destroyed.

Syria's Foreign Minister, Wailed Mualem, accused the US of attempting to carry out a "massacre of Muslims" and of sowing "discord among Islamic faiths in the region."

Mualem called on "regional states to pave the ground for the establishment of peace and tranquillity… while

So, when is someone going to take this Kook serious, and take preemptive action? Something, such as that, might temper other's desire to shoot off their mouths with threats to the wellbeing of others.

John,
my sincerest congratulation for this extraordinary spark of insight, the Holy Spirit must have touched your mind at 3:07 am. Right. Now, make the next step and ask yourself why this is so. Go on. :lol:

I'll give you a clue,
Quote:So, when is someone going to take this Kook (Ahmedinejad) serious, and take preemptive action?
this points in the wrong direction.

Oh "Q", that is elemental. It is because we "Oppose" them, and are a hinderence to their having their way. You should be aware of that, at least. The rest of the world, and if you are a Euro, Europe IS the world, they have allowed themselves to be castrated, because they prefer socialism, and it's many siren's calls, rather than spend that money on self-defense. This will come back to haunt the Euros. That is why you folks talk and sing with high notes. You(third person) have no balls. Wink1

Well... And the European Union will soon extend into Asia as Turkey will become a member as soon as they will comply to all demands.

The question is when Thailand also will become a member of the EU.....

/track_snake
Ken, the liaisons I referred to are, I believe, only a handful - as your latest post admits. Maybe Eisenhower would have called them "Our advisors in Southeast Asia." There are no longer any American military bases here. There is an annual war games held here, for several countries' forces, although it might be cancelled this year, due to the junta.
