RE: Chinese bullet train breaks 302 mph; breaks speed record
The USA would be much better off if the government was run by
someone playing Civilization 5... where you don't care about the
money, only about the level of progress, completely ignoring
"elected officials" reign and worrying more about "where will my
country be in the next 500 years?" than "What shall I have for
breakfast?" which is the way th country is run today.
The US needs to go to 10 year presidential terms (limit 3) and 7
year congress terms (limit 3-5), move all of it's military back to US
soil and use them to police the USA, protect our borders instead
of someone else's and build shelters for the homeless of our
country, not to rebuild cities in another nation. Stop giving money
to the countries that the US occupied during war times over the
last 75 years and spend that money building in our own
Instead of joining wars (or starting them) in other countries, the
US should work on a contract basis for the UN, requiring payment
for our efforts, if we even help out. The US ALWAYS provides
more of it's children in these so called "UN Sanctioned" wars than
anyone else. If the world wants our help, let them pay us for it,
not us pay them after we leave.
You want to catch someone like Bin Laden, all you have to do is
contact the government of the country he was last reported in
and tell them in 24 hours you will drop a significant number of
bombs on that person's "home town" if he is not turned in, and
again in another 12 hours on another city he has been "seen in"
until they find him and turn him over to us. (in Bin laden's case,
start with a city, then start hitting the mount ranges where known
caves or bases might be located). They might laugh at you for
23 hours, 59 minutes and 59 seconds. After that, you have their
attention and everyone in the country will do what ever it takes to
turn that person in to the authorities. you want to see how far
loyalty to a terrorist goes? start nuking cities, towns, and villages
that are associated with them, I'll bet that terrorists own family will
turn him in.
If this had been the policy of the USA in the 80's we would not be
in the situation we have been in for the last 9 years, it just would
not have happened, who would try to blow up the world trade
center towers if they knew their entire home city would get
incinerated as a response?
If you go around letting people sodomize you, then people will line
up to get their turn, if you go around sodomizing people, then
they will keep out of your way. Remember Mel, the cook from
Alice (US TV) "The best defense is a good offense"
