      That should go over well. The Neocons convincing the Republicans that the guy with the purse strings is the bad guy.

        Regardless with the internet, international business and the UN...the world has moved beyond a bipolar geopolitical confrontation (regardless of who gets positioned as 'the' enemy).

          I doubt it. Inventing an enemy is lucrative. Corporations bribe politicians to scare voters to pay for (well, borrow for) the ludicrously expensive white elephants produced by the corporations. If you oppose them you're a cowardly appeaser who would endanger our children.

          Won't somebody think of the children?!?

            Valid. Yet I will say that more and more people worldwide are getting it. And that govts that do participate in geopolitical confrontation will be increasingly isolated from both what's going on out there...as well as what benefits majority of their population. But your point has been shown to be true as the US itself hasn't graduated to the real world yet.

              Not yet they haven't. Somebody's going to try it again. They always have. But, as long as they don't threaten US citizens or interests, let the locals deal with him/her/it.

              Now, on a more historical, interesting note, Hitler's nephew wrote this letter to FDR in 1942 asking to be allowed in enlist in the US Army.

                Um. The somebody who tried it, succeeded.

                It was us.

                        I figured the Russian part of the map would just be "Frozen gibbering in terror".

                        Huh.
