Do you think that US will control the world?

Postby luckygirl9 » Fri Oct 29, 2004 12:48 pm

As I've just heard that US expresident Clinton might attend the election of secretary-general of the United Nation,and may have a sharp compete with the present secretary.But I hope he won't suceed.If he does so,America will absolutely control the world and that will be fierce and horrible.
Scraping away the oil from mid-east,America wanna have more status and authorities,in order to rise up the price of the oil,then accomplish their future targets.If every country is getting well with each other,where will be the risks?
Now please share the opinions on what you think about the series things US having been done.Do you think that US will control the world?

America wants to control the world. It expressed its goal very long ago, especially in World War I and II.It has gained a part of its objective untill now. However, I don't think America is controlling the world now. Certainly Americans never remove their aim but it is not easy to success.Its failure in Vietnam-America war proves that. It means capitalism cannot defeat socialism. The best for all countries surviving is to live together and cooperate. Otherwise, China is aslo an extremely powerful nation in the world. It has an available advantage of crowded population and large land. USA and China are most powerful countries at the present.Nowadays,the global trend is developing and reinforcing. From what I have witnessed, the global trend is the desire of all countries.
NO WAR-NO PAIN.

Though Paxamercana seem to be strong, but it maybe does not

First,thanks for replying.After seeing G.W.Bush continue his American president,some socialists explains that the most important reason for people voting him is that they wanna safe.Because Kerry emphasized that he would not acted with mid-east if not possible,they may be afraid of while terrotists came to attack but Kerry didn't have any careful defence!
A practical strong country should be based on world peaceful and united.It should not always think about its own interests,what it need most at present,which country may be harmful to them.It ought to concern much about the interests of the whole world.We have only one earth!We love our motherland!We don't need wars!We don't welcome hegemonism!
So America wanna be a good leader,the good way is not "control" but "unite"!

If you think we are powerful in military base then you are right but not fully right. We're one strong nation right now because mainly of our economy. Everyone does business with us. Our stock market affects the whole world. If it's what you meant by powerful nation then you're right. Otherwise, you're too one-sided.
If a country wanted to be strong, the economy would need to be strong. It's because strong in economy leads to better health care, better education, better in househould income, better in military forces since the country has enough money for weapons and stuff. I believe we never said we're the leader of the world. Everyone else thinks so. We don't care because what's the need to stop them?

Excuse me for being selfish to you but I think you're not making sense there. Every country thinks about its own interests and which country will be a threat to them. If you were a good President, you would do the same thing. Taking care of your people and put your people's needs first. You wouldn't go out there being a world police like that damn Bush thinks he's doing right now. "Mission accomplished" my asssssss. :roll: He used our tax money for that war and what we've gotten out of it? News of young American soldiers have died in Iraq, news that they cannot return even for treatment. That's what we've been getting out of it so far and let me tell you, it stinks.
Kerry is different than him. His terrorism plan wasn't strong because we need to build back the economy. We need to make America safe from inside first. We need to be strong on defense. We have our own problems, too. We need to fix them first before going out there fixing other's. That's what we should do.
His banning gay marriages, abortion, and other moral issues were not strong because those are individual's decision. If religious people think they have their own right then it goes the same for others. So if they don't want their rights to be messed with, don't mess other's.
Whatever, the election is over. I just can't wait to see this four years passing by.

Thank you for sharing and discussing your opinions, luckygirl :wink: . I hope the US will do better, too. And I hope that idiot won't mess up again. If he started another war, my brother might have to go to war since he'll be 18 before his term is over. That's also one of the reason I did not want him to be the President. Daddy Bush started the war in the Middle East and he didn't really finish it. Then Baby Bush started it again and who knows what's in his mind right now. He might try to finish it even it would cost many lives of the young Americans. He wouldn't be the one who went to war so I don't think he'd give a d***. Sigh, what a term!
