Fortunately, neither of these countries have long-range nuclear missiles. The only country that does and has any disagreement with the US is, AFAIK, Russia.
Yeah, but Russia, as far as I know, is on pretty friendly terms with the US now, since they aren't "DARNED COMMIES!!!".

But you can never trust the Russians. They are still a lot more commie than we are. And they would love to dominate if they had the chance. But I agree that we really don't have to worry about them the way we used to, back in Krushchev "We will bury you!" days.

This is NOT what we're doing. Otherwise we'd have taken over Canada and Mexico before a ton of places overseas.

Canada and Mexico are completely dominated by the U.S., both politically and more important economically. In Canada there is massive U.S. control of our resources and the companies that develop them. Culturally there is almost no difference between us, much as Canadians would love there to be; we function as a region of North America. And I have heard that the North American Free Trade Agreement, (NAFTA) is essentially being used as a stepping stone to political union in North America along the European model. The U.S. doesn't need to use its military to dominate us, because we have already been conquered by other means. The same is true of many countries in the world; the military capability is essentially plan B for countries, like Iraq, who were refusing to play ball the U.S. way otherwise.

Lol that is soo far from true. Being an important country is far from trying to take over the world. Trading with another country is a bit different than taking them over...

personally I think that the us federal government should substantially increase all social services for people living in poverty in the us, costing about 4 20 trillion dollars. (I actually debate as a sport, and that's my case)

Is this a new topic? What is the cut-off for poverty? Who gets included, all U.S. citizens? What about the illegals?
