    :lol: ..because it's true.

    Australian looks at calendar, it's 4th of July... pfft nobody here cares! :lol:

    Not entirely true, they're invading countries on a horrible scale, plundering the world's resources to fuel their factories, selling cheap products because the labour is cheap .....because it's made by Chinese 'slaves'.

    Yeah, Europe was the superpower in the 19th century, the USA was in the 20th and it now looks that China will be a force to be reckoned with this century.

    4th July goes almost unnoticed but oddly St. Patrick's day is getting big down here, not sure why but with all the Irish pubs sprouting around the place it's a good excuse for them to put on a bash.

    Not an official public holiday though some will take the day off work to spend in the pub wearing a silly green hat.

    Oh yeah, a lot if not most white Australians have Irish heritage but if you ask them they consider themselves Australian, they wouldn't even know a word of Gaelic so it's not like they feel proud to be Irish.

    You just added to what I said earlier......"a lot of guns"...which was my point to begin with as to why an invasion on US soil won't happen...a lot of guns in civilian hands.

    I never said anyone has to care. He asked for information so I provided some.

    You think I like the fact that we have to put our finger in everybody’s situation because they can't handle it themselves? You forget that they ask for our assistance. If it were up to me we would stay put and let all the other countries with problems die off. I call it population control. If you can't handle your own shit....then bye bye.

    And I know nobody else cares about the 4th of July. That is an American holiday. Just like you guys in other countries prob have your own holidays, which we don't give a shit about. :lol:....because it's true

    Yes, it's the guns in civilian hands, not your nuclear weapons, missiles, fighter jets, battleships, submarines, army, national guard, marines, girl scouts, etc. :lol: ^ dreamer :rolleyes:.

    All those guns and you still can't stop the Mexicans invading. :lol:

    If ground troops from another country invaded us do you really think we would drop nukes and missiles on our own population? Maybe, but you never know. It would be a battle of arms.

    And Mexico isn't invading us for control, otherwise would would be aloud to shoot them on site the minute they cross our borders. Trust me...we could stop them, but unless we have the go ahead from our government we will go to jail for shooting, I mean stopping them.

    Were we not just talking about gun laws earlier and when and when you can't shoot at someone? Someone crossing the border is not a direct threat against someones life so if we shot them we would go to jail. I'm pretty sure that we you and I who were talking about that.

    No, you'd pick them out of the water & sky before they hit your shores and if they did make it ashore, just like you did to the Japanese who invaded you'd keep nuking their country to show them what for.

    It's why the Koreans, Russians, etc. won't invade or strike the US, not because your civilians have guns.

    We're allies with the USA, our civilians don't carry guns but we don't get invaded because our US slaves will protect us.

    I was being facetious about the Mexicans. :lol:

    By the way, I'm on your side, I'd love to have a gun.

    I was more getting at once they are already on US soil, if they made it that far.

    About nukes....I really don't know what the US would do at that point. I mean we all signed a treaty to never use nukes again, but who knows. I know countries with nukes still have them on high alert, but would someone actually use one? Once one did I think everyone else would launch too, in fear of not knowing if they will be hit or not.

    Slaves...that's the reason I don't think we should help anyone else. Call us names, hate on us...but when you need our help, we are your best friend. We need money, we need food... It's always up to the USA to save the day when in reality we already have enough problems of our own that we need to handle first. If we can't take care of our own population how can we help others?

    :lol: I was actually quoting the Kuwaiti when you guys went in to save them from Iraq.

    Our guys are helping your guys in Afghanistan right now and we ain't happy about it either. In fact our soldiers, particularly the SAS always get high praises from US troops. I suppose being a country full of alpha males we train 'em hard in some pretty harsh conditions. My brother was thinking of trying out for our SAS but he ended up going to Croatia just after their war (he left here as soon as he finished uni) and spent > 10 years there as a commando.

    > implying that the US is militarily helping others out of the goodness of their hearts.

    You must be very proud.

    There are tons of soldiers in Afgan right now, not just US soldiers, yet we take most of the heat for it all....for some reason.

    SAS are BAMF's. Are they equivilent to US Special Forces or something similar?

    That's true, my brother spent 6 months in Kabul with the Croatian Military Police and you have to ask wtf are the Croatian's doing in Afghanistan. :lol:

    I guess the US were leading the whole thing trying to get back at Osama.

    They're the elite, not sure what your equivalent is, Green Beret?

    My brother did tell me about the selection process, 150 across the country applied for the SAS that year, of that lot 22 were selected and put through 14 days of training & they choose only a few of that lot. One of the guys of his company was part of that program and dropped out on the very last day. They must've put him through some pretty intense shit to drop out like that.

    Hollywood tends to portray commandos as Arnie/Rambo types but when you see them they're all actually scrawny, you just can't put on bulk when you're living in the wild like that. The musclebound types are usually driving tanks & such.

    :lol:

    Lemme tell you a story.

    You know the FARCs? The Colombian Guerillas?

    They are a decently trained paramilitary force. They know the lay of the land, they are used to jungle fighting, they have decent armament. So, not an average joe with a double barreled shotgun.

    So, one day there was an encampment of those guys that for whatever reason needed to be taken out. 50-ish armed combatants. We sent one squad, 6 guys or something. Mission accomplished with no casualties on our side.

    Having a gun is a decent defense against a random idiot trying to rob/rape/beat/kill you, but it's no substitute for military training, intelligence, tactics and logistics. Don't expect American civilians to be of much use against other militaries. That's one of the reasons why the US even HAVE a military.

    Also, pull back on the blind patriotism a bit. America is everybody's best friend? Seriously? How can you say that with a straight face?

    I understand that Leandro, but ALOT of US civilians used to be in the military.

    And the best friend thing was a joke. Everyone hates us, I know that....until they need something for us. Then we are best friends until they get what they need.

    It's not blind patriotism....I don't like a lot of things that go on in this country, but it's still the country I belong to so I would do anything for it.

    They may get what they need but there's always a payback somewhere else - the US protects them, in return the US get first dibs on the oil, get to sell them arms, or whatever the trade is.

    Our troops get sent to Afghanistan, we argue why the hell, it's not our fight but we're sided with you guys so have to go.

    In return I guess no country will invade us from fear of being struck down by the US.

    You may not know this but we can't sell our wheat to certain countries because they have agreements with the US - your farmers are benefitting from this. There's all sorts of wheeling and dealing going on.

    There's some guns we can legally buy here, farmers need them, etc. It's pistols and automatics we can't purchase and up until recently semi-automatics were added to that list after a one guy (Martin Bryant) went crazy in Tasmania killing 35 people with a semi-auto.

    The govt. had a gun buy back amnesty, all semi - automatics were handed in and destroyed, everyone in Australia had to pay an extra 1% in tax that year :(

    Govt's ...they're good.

    Why can't they get it together? Did you vote?

    It's compulsory here but I guess it gets the lazy ones off the couch to have a say.

    Odd that it's not compulsory in the US, you hear them complain about the govt. and ask, so did you vote? Errr ...nah. :lol:

    All I will say about voting is that it is very hard to vote for a candidate when you really don't agree with what any of them are trying to do.
