So, is this WWII or a possible WWIII we are on about?
Cassowary meant WW1 (not Two) when he launched this discussion.

(Just as in another one he initiated he spelled idiot as UDIOT) :lol: :lol: :lol:

You are slipping Cass. That is what you get for being too eager. :)

There would be little point in the Syrian government investing in anti-missile technology if it did not work.

Re: why Russia is no economic superpower.

Wow Neverfail. You have wide and deep knowledge over a wide range of subjects. I am impressed. I often wondered this question as to why fracking has not spread elsewhere. I had vaguely put it down to environmental concerns. Thanks for adding to my store of knowledge. Warm thanks for the acknowledge...

Re: Who is to blame for starting WWI?

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-26048324 This is a spin off from another thread. It is an interesting topic which I don't know much about. So I hope to learn something. Above link gave 10 answers. I think you put one "I" too many in the title of this thread. :) Or given yesterday's headlines one...

What the British think about a missile attack on Syria

The British are wise.

Trump has no cogent strategy for Syria. His missile strikes seem to be nothing but isolated knee jerk reactions to events there that arouse his personal distaste.

Re: why Russia is no economic superpower.

You are right about Russian nukes. That is all it has got. Russian economy will grow weaker as Trump ramps up oil and gas production. Technology is also improving green energy. You're giving credit to Trump for things that ramped up during the Obama adminstration. (And even then, remember, remember...

Re: Frequent error... there is no country named "Europe" :-)

A country rich on resources and with a highly educated people only needs time - and investment - to become a highly developed country. There is no reason to think that US sanctions will be able to stop that. In some cases they may slow it down a bit, in other cases they will speed up Russia's devel...

Does the United States have a free trade pact with the PRC?

If not, is it not high time for it to negotiate one?
