I must remind my black liberal Friend who is always reflexively complaining about discrimination. The only groups facing institutional discrimination are Asians and whites.

Re: The Future of the World

Stop sounding off in defence of Russia, Sertorio. Your outraged spluttering is palpable. Given that the Russian Federation is the only country in the world that possesses a thermonuclear arsonal (along with the delivery systems) to wipe the USA off the map (let alone Europe) I would contend that Ru...

Re: The Future of the World

The US has not gone crazy. It is time to adjust to changed circumstances. The Europeans have the resources to defend themselves against a diminished Russia. Not against Russia's thermonuclear arsonal. I wish people would stop seeing Russia as a threat. Russia is much less of a threat than a trigger...
