So what do we get for their loyalty that is worth all the money we spend to get it?


Their blessings for your wars of course. And the issue they couldn't be a part of in good conscience was probably the best one that could be used to separate the US and Israel from the moral decency of the rest of the world. (with the exception of 9 who yielded to US blackmail threats.

I'm hoping this could be a watershed moment at the UN. I'm not optimistic it will be quite yet. But Trump brings promise of similar fukups to come. Shame on Americans who support his crimes against humanity.

Why do we need anyone's blessing?

I was hoping the UN's watershed moment would be when they banned troops fighting under their banner from using humanitarian food supplies to seduce children.

Yes, Trump sucks.  During the entirety of his presidency, Canada should protest by paying for its own defense instead of being a protectorate of Uncle Sam.

Hey, just out of curiosity, is there a Canadian equivalent of Uncle Sam, John Bull, etc?

I totally agree that Canada should have nothing at all to do with US socalled 'defense' or military spending.

In fact, I think I could quite likely counter any argument that you could try to make on that even being the case.

Canada's spending on our military is being done to pacify the US.

We spend much less that we should be paying to support the US in it's aggression throughout the world.

And the US's big spending cut of a 1/4 of a billion from the UN can only be seen as a good move for the rest of the world and a naive mistake on the part of Trump.

The UN and Nato are tools of the US, which it needs to gain support of it's ongoing aggression. Europe is waking up from the spell too. The hold the US has tightened since WW2 on Germany is starting to be broken.

If Russia and China are a threat, which they really aren't, Germany and the EU are now capable of arming itself against any threat.

You're such a hoot Donat dear... Did you forget that you said you live in New Jersey?

Whatever, if you keep claiming to be a puppet, people might start to believe you.

I can see differences.

Edit: I'll try to make that easier to understand. There is a cat who lives with me who is an individual private entity, but he's very far from human.

For pseudo-libertarians, I live in New Jersey sweet ass one.

Has anybody mentioned the first step for libertarianism yet?. Would you let me know when somebody does sweet one?
