    But Venezuela IS a threat to tranquility and justice for millions of Venezuelans now living under a dictator...they don't count.
    But then, the opposition refused to take to the streets early on while the Left was overwhelming in pushing it's agenda.

    Exact same thing that's happening now in the US. Yep, laugh....but we all see what's coming....we're in denial.
    The Left is always more powerful in demanding their way...by any means necessary.
    Eventually they'll get what they demand here in the USA....same as they did in Venezuela.....due to apathy.

    Well this is not an abortion thread (but you can expect that number, if its right, to increase with the GOP )
    meaning I doubt both your numbers,

    also I guess the people, men , women and children that we kill do not count??

    We do not interfere in other countries due to humanitarian reasons. We created what is happening in Venezuela, because in 2002 our coup did not work and they cozied up to China.

    You will find no one more anti-abortion than me. However, I can hold two strong opinions simultaneously. Can you?

    Gosh! You mean people sometimes kill each other? We don't always sit in a circle holding hands and singing folk songs?

    Maybe it's time you became aware of the fact that in the real world it sometimes comes down to kill or be killed. Most of us know on which side of that equation we prefer to be. Civilians hire the military to do the killing and dying for them but are equally responsible no matter what they prefer to think.

    I do not want the military killing and dying for me. And at any rate, they don’t. They kill and die for the Oligarchy.

    Inmar is right ...
    ---------------------------
    For proof, you can do the following:
    Type in google a word (this is not a communist company?) :04:

    1. "The Kwantung Army"
    You will receive an answer:
    - This is the Army of Imperial Japan, numbering 1.5 million people
    - Was defeated by the Soviet Union in 1945


    2. The great victories of America against Japan ... I hope you know ...
    "It's the Japanese Navy and the air fleet." Nobody argues ...
    - The island army, numbering 30 thousand people ...
    :04:


    =================================================
    3. Lend-Lease ...
    It is considered as the ratio of the cost of US aid to the USSR to the cost of equipment manufactured in the USSR

    - According to Zhukov: 1 percent

    - According to American data - 30-50 percent?
    Very funny and beats with simple logic: "The enemy always increases his services and reduces the services of the enemy" ... Accepted among the "polite lies" - 3 times .. But I can argue that the Americans do it 10 times !!!!! !!

    - According to the "liberal intelligentsia - the fifth column, the enemies of Russia" - it's even funnier ... They say: "the data is classified" ... If the enemy says that the data is classified, it means that they know the real numbers, but they ashamed to admit ...

    ================================================== ==
    By the way ...
    I do not advise you to hint Inmaru on his education ..:04:

    IOW -- you don't really appreciate history. If we ARE in 100 countries, then it's by INVITATION and AGREEMENT.. NOT because we run those places. We are STUPIDLY giving them free defense services. And I don't like it either.. BUT -- that's nowhere NEAR Empire status.. Unless you know of land claims that I don't...

    Wrong. Unless you go somewhere where there is no military police or other protective services that's their job. The government controls them and you are supposed to control the government. If you don't do your part you have no one to blame but yourself. Denial doesn't change your irresponsibility.
