How about some documentation(proof) of your claim. Ireland didn't make the top ten on this list.Ireland has a tiny Army. No Navy and no Air force yet Irish citizens enjoy the 6th highest GDP in the World.
That may be in part because Ireland has a tiny Army. No Navy and no Air Force.
You perhaps should take China more seriously. They are rapidly advancing/moving in both space and military technology. With endless growth in factories/industrial plants for people in the West fueling it.There is that, and his almost crazed attacks against almost anybody for no real reason.
The moment he tried to claim that "nobody knew what China has", I was actually laughing. China brags to the world whenever they even decide to work on a prototype. Let alone before it is even produced. Bragging the entire time it is the best ever. Only to see a final product that is so bad not even their own military wants it.
And it's not like they did not tell the entire world last month when their carrier and a few other ships went out for an exercise.
Plus, over 2,000 posts in 2 months? Yeah those are some serious troll numbers there.
I simply have no time or use for such nonsense.
Ireland is an open economy (6th on the Index of Economic Freedom) and ranks first for high-value foreign direct investment (FDI) flows. In the global GDP per capita tables, Ireland ranks 4th of 186 in the IMF table and 4th of 187 in the World Bank ranking.How about some documentation(proof) of your claim. Ireland didn't make the top ten on this list.

EDIT: Per this list Ireland is #29;
List of countries by GDP (nominal)
Is Israel fourth ? Surrounded by Arab neighbors which they perceive as threats, they'd have to have a real good military just to continue to exist.USA then Russia then China
Then a huge huge drop off
British have a good navy and special forces
Israel has bad azzz Air Force and special forces
French have good balance

It relates to a thread I wrote last year around Autumn. In the thread, you'll find the link that the story is based on.Links please.
1) It's a courtesy to others whom may want to examine the sources further.It relates to a thread I wrote last year around Autumn. In the thread, you'll find the link that the story is based on.
I can't remember what I entitled the thread so I can't bring it up. However, if you go through all my threads at that time you'll find it.
Anyway, I have seen several stories that appear to contradict the claim so I wouldn't take any as gospel. They are only as good as their source and they could be anybody. Why is it so important anyway?

What about Russia ??
A Russian naval and air exercise off Hawaii that Moscow said was its largest drills in the Pacific since the end of the Cold War and involved surface ships, anti-submarine aircraft and long-range bombers, has ended, but a Russian spy ship remains in the Hawaii operating area, according to a variety of sources.
The Russian government put out a release announcing the end of the drills that were generally several hundred miles west of Hawaii.
“The Russian vessels are transiting west and are out of the Hawaii Operation Area,” said Navy Capt. Mike Kafka, a spokesman for U.S. Indo-Pacific Command at Camp H.M. Smith. “As part of our normal daily operations, we continue to track all vessels in the Indo-Pacific area of operations through maritime patrol aircraft, surface ship and joint capabilities.”
Kafka said the Russian vessels operated in international waters throughout the exercise.
“At the closest point, some ships operated approximately 20 to 30 nautical miles (23 to 34 statute miles) off the coast of Hawaii,” he said. “We closely tracked all vessels.”
1) It's a courtesy to others whom may want to examine the sources further.
2) It's validation and proof you didn't fabricate or are attempted to blow smoke up the backside.
3) Years of experience on other forums dealing with history and science, etc., I have acquired their requirement that claims and data be documented.
It's only important if you want me and others to believe what you say is true and accurate and not consider it all made up rubbish and bollocks.

Quite amazing, land of my birth was pretty poverty stricken when I was born, which forced my parents to leave.
Must have a lot to do with membership of the EU.
So much for Brexit ridden Britain!
"Ireland is living well off the future debt burden to be borne by the children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, etc. of that nation. Ireland is doing well at the expense of it's future and it's future population"Slightly Yes, more largely NO ~ not!
1) At least you've documented a source for your distorted claim, admittedly one that is questionable on the credibility scales.
2) In your post #3 of this thread you stated "GDP", not "GDP per capita" which this questionable link shows. So are you moving the goalposts , unable to clearly state what you want to say, engaging in distortion and disingenuous commentary, or plain don't know what you are talking about?
With that in mind, a basic definition for your benefit and that of others here;
GDP = Gross Domestic Product;
Gross domestic product (GDP) is a monetary measure of the market value of all the final goods and services produced in a specific time period.
Once again, "per capita income" is not the same thing as Gross(total) Domestic Product.
If you fail to grasp these concepts and their fundamental differences, you may need to repeat your basic education.
Furthermore, you need to look at this bit of data, which shows National debt for Ireland is almost equal to that nation's GDP and the total of Debt is over 900% of GDP !!!
Public Debt to GDP Ratio = 99.85%
External Debt to GDP Ratio = 809.64%
Total National Debt to GDP Ratio of = 909.49%
Which makes Ireland one of the most in-debt and economically mis-managed nations on this planet!
Ireland is living well off the future debt burden to be borne by the children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, etc. of that nation. Ireland is doing well at the expense of it's future and it's future population which will pay the price of current excess and personal greed (yes folks, greed comes in all sizes), especially when Ireland goes banckrupt and reality places it as one of the poorest nations on the planet.
I wouldn't be boasting about about false economics and data chicanery running my nation into the poor house if I was in your shoes. In fact, I'd say it's time for some serious belt-tigthening and a bit of fiscal responsibility, rather than a future that promises economic slavery for the nation.
That only looks at numbers. Quality wise we would be better than the numbers. For instance, Russia comes in first in tanks but our fewer tanks are better.
It also doesn't consider the ability to do combined arms, which the US excels at.
Still, the USA is at @240% ratios versus Ireland's @910% ratios so the scale of difference is nearly four to one."Ireland is living well off the future debt burden to be borne by the children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, etc. of that nation. Ireland is doing well at the expense of it's future and it's future population"
Ha ha ha, and who exactly isn't?
USA National Debt $28 Trillion.
The UK where I happen to live £4.8 Trillion (latest projection.)
As for the rest of your criticisms, they are just meaningless semantics.
Now, who is moving the goalposts?Still, the USA is at @240% ratios versus Ireland's @910% ratios so the scale of difference is nearly four to one.
CYA all you want, either you display equal "meaningless semantics" (meaning you don't understand, really) yourself, or you haven't a clue what is being discussed on economics.
