If Bush wins in November I would say yes....there will be more Americans coming home in bodybags,more people tortured by US forces,and of course more bullshit.

A war against scrawny, pimple-faced Canadians who pollute otherwise interesting message boards with thousands of moronic threads is looking pretty good right now.

I don't think so

I think there is little if any possiblitiy of an invasion of Iran for a few reasons.

The first, and I think most important, Iran has a much more robust military and it would be long and protracted. Way too many dead Americans.

The second is that there is no money to pay for it.

Third, how would be occupy Iraq, Iran and Afganistan? They are talking about calling up IRR troops now, there is no way there is enough troops for this sort of thing.

Finally, with regard to the election, Congressional races come around real quick and I think a new conflict with Iran that would send a lot of Americans home in body bags would lead to a repudiation of the Republican Party much like the post-Watergate era.

Hmmm, a meaningless poll by somebody trying to push their own agenda.
Pointless. I wish there was a way I could un-read that crap.
You took two minutes of my life Sri Lanky, and I want them back.

Come on guys!!! Stop picking on Sri Lanky!!!! His anti-americanism is pure talent, a gift from GOD(or in this case "Great Earth Mother Gaia").

Though some of his methodologies are a little crude. Maybe this article will help him chip away some of those rough edges.







The BKW Guide to Anti-Americanism
by John Hawkins
Greetings friends (and by friends I mean everyone but Americans)! BKW has long been accused of being too pro-American and in order to refute these scandalous charges we've decided to write a "Guide to Anti-Americanism." If you've ever wanted to fit in at European Dinner Parties, Anti-globalism protests, or at a Harvard faculty meeting this is an article you must read!

When in Doubt, Blame America: Since America is the root of all evil, you can be assured that every bad thing that happens in your life is the result of something America did. So for example, in the Winter Olympics when a French ice skating judge conspired with a Russian judge to cheat a pair of Canadian skaters out of a gold medal it made perfect sense that the Russians blamed America. Even if America wasn't directly responsible for everything that happened, they deserve to be blamed because they're bad, bad, people!

Treat America like a Communist Dictatorship: All good Anti-Americans understand that the American government is to blame for America's actions, not the American people despite the fact that the American people vote in the government. Furthermore, we understand that despite the fact that American newspapers, TV, and radio claim to be independent, the government secretly controls them all in order to convince stupid Americans to carry guns, vote for the death penalty, and to loathe berets.

You Should Visit America Once in Your Life: Now I know you're thinking "why would I want to visit America? There's nothing there but a bunch of fat, ignorant, hillbillies and cowboys amusing each other with fart jokes." True! But once you've been to America once you can claim forever more to know all about it because you've actually been there!

Gratitude Smatitude: Some people feel pangs of guilt about hating America since Americans liberated their nation, brought Democracy to their country, have given them billions in aid, etc. Don't be a sucker. America probably only helped you so they could sell you more McDonald's hamburgers or so they could tear up your national landmarks to drill for oil. Don't be fooled!

That Flag Waving is so Gauche: Nothing could be more annoying than a bunch of flag waving Americans chanting USA, USA, USA. I mean have you ever chanted France, France, France while eating escargot and caviar at a café? Of course not! What a bunch of barbarians!

Denying Anti-Americanism: It's very important that you deny being anti-American while ranting obsessively about how much you hate everything and everyone in America. This drives Americans crazy! If they press you to find something you like about America (Ha, ha! Yeah right) try to give them a left-handed compliment like "American universities have many brilliant professors who seem to understand America's oppressive role in the world. I certainly admire them."

Empire America: It's very important to state the obvious fact that America is trying to create an empire much like Rome...no..better yet, like Ghengis Khahn did! That's why the Soviet Union had to invade so many countries, to stop American imperialism and hegemony! Of course a lot of people don't believe that but when the Canadians are made into slaves so they can build the "Bush pyramids" I think the world will wake up!

American Ignorance: American's are appallingly ignorant of other nations and worse yet, don't care! For example, ask an American who the Treasury Secretary of Spain is? When they say "No clue. What difference does it make?" Hit them with "There is no Treasury Secretary of Spain! It was a trick question and how can you not care you stupid American? What are you, too busy waving your stupid flag to pay attention? You Americans are morons!" Make sure to say things like this on internet forums and chat rooms because American's tend to watch too many John Wayne movies and think being insulted may be a good reason to fight. Have I called them barbarians yet?

The Trojan Horse of American Kindness: It is vitally important not to let America get away with what appear to be "good deeds." Take food drops in Afghanistan. The Americans were obviously trying to lead people into mine fields or kill them by squashing them with food packets. It was a clever trick (for Americans, har, har, har) but we're on to you!


Congratulations! You've now learned everything you'll need to know about anti-Americanism. You can now wear your turtleneck, eat your quiche, and sneer at everything American with pride! Viva la Anti-Americanism!

Trust me the Iranians would make far better friends than enemies. I know this first hand.
