that people like you and me who just want to live our lives in peace free from war and corruption are subjected to governments putting innocent lives at risk. It's like the people in power think only they exist and they only care about prolonging their regime. I mean, just look at all of the bs that has been going on: more countries developing nukes (nukes are bad news bears), jobs going overseas so the corporations can make one more penny, and not to mention the rape of the Earth's environment.. It just seems like the whole world has gone to hell in a handbasket and nothing can be redeemed. I just gotta know if I'm alone with this feeling or not.

I propose we make a moon colony and only invite cool people like Ian Anderson and Ian Fleming to join us in our new perfect utopia.

This is old news. War has been around for millennia now bud.

Seriously though, it does in fact suck.

North Korea doesn't make me feel too good about my not going to war chances. A draft would seriously piss me off, do we have enough people to fight a war like that without one?

No offensive but this sounds like hippie shit.

This, and comparing our quality of life to people living before us things are pretty damn good right now. Although the fact that we could bomb the world to hell if we wanted to is a pretty unsettling thought.

I understand where you're coming from, TS. Unfortunately I don't see a way to fix things. The powers that be all over the world and the entities that have control aren't going to be budged by the likes of you and I. But maybe that's just me thinking that way, after all I'm just an eternal skeptic.

Nah man, I think that as well. And the only solution to these feelings of hopelessness (moving out of the U.S. before shit really hits the fan) is purely for my own well-being, not for my children who are, at any rate, going to have even more dreadful lives than I have today.

We may be going through a bit of a rough patch but when was the world that much better than it is right now? As society advances new problems are bound to develop and so far humans have done a pretty good job of finding ways to deal with them if you ask me.

Lol, taking on North Korea would be like taking on Mexico, if Mexico had nukes. The problem with NK isn't their military, it's the fact that they're all insane and have nukes. Their military blows, big dicks the size of mountains, to put it in perspective.

^This.
Their military is worthless.
The only thing they can do to hurt anyone is if they decide to nuke someone. I don't see this happening., and if it does then leave the country. That's all there is to say about it TS.

This is incorrect. North Korea has the 4th largest active military force in the world, behind only China, India, and the United States.

According to North Korea. North Korea's reported literacy rate is 99%. By now you should know that any information coming out of North Korea is utter bullshit.

Oh, wait...

Lol, we're not trying to beat Afghanistan in a war. If it were a question of beating them in a war it would have been exactly like Desert Storm. But it isn't a war against a country, it's a "war" on terror, which is in Afghanistan. And lots of other places.

And my fellow smart guy already compensated for NK reportedly being the 4th largest active military. Even if that were true, which it isn't, it wouldn't matter.

If North Korea started nuking, every country in the world (even China) would shove a rod so far up Kim Jung-Ils ass that North Korea wouldn't even exist any more.

Exactly. China has already told KJI that if he keeps up with his bullshit they're done with them. I don't think KJI will do anything. He knows that there's to much at stake if he starts something.

you can secede from the union and form your perfect, hippie, communist utopia where all possesions are "the peoples" and you have no personal freedoms....sounds good to me! (yeah right)

I think you are only recognizing one side of these things TS. Corporations send jobs overseas for reasons beyond greed. People overseas work harder for less which allows U.S. consumers to sae a bit of money. As for other nations building nuclear weapons...do you think it is possible that they feel threatened by the big guys and want something to defend themselves with? I'm not saying that under developed countries should have nukes, but I don't think it's particularly hard to theorize why they would want them outside of antagonizing. The U.S. and every other country maintain militaries not because they are so cool but because we need an army to defend ourselves with in case of war.
