We aren't just committed to college football; we're early enrolling in it.

Please explain how the United States not meddling in foreign countries' problems started WWII
-We chose not to participate in the League of Nations
-The League of Nations lost legitimacy
-Without the US in the League, the League had no teeth
-Other Countries pulled out
-This helped precipitate the events that led to WWII
The line of logic isn't hard to follow. The US (and many other countries) took isolationist attitudes after WWI. Everyone wanted to worry about themselves and not the world at large. With no powers involved enough to check their growth, countries like Italy, Japan, and Germany were able to get away with what they did and start another world war.
Take a history class.

And you have literally no knowledge of the inner workings of the UN, nor do you have any knowledge of history in general.
The question is why art thou so angry?
University of Alabama: The high mark of college football since 1892
Aren't you the same guy who compared the present day United States to the Late Roman Empire last week? I don't think you're in a position to lecture anyone on history.
I am angry because other people are so ignorant.
What i said was true, in some aspects. To act otherwise is foolish.
Which aspects? Please enlighten us.
While i certainly could, i dont have the available information and don't want to hunt for it on the.internet.
Either way that is against the point. History shows us that our fellow man can't be trusted with to much power, that is 100% indisputable. Slowly but surely the UN will attain legitimacy which is certainly not good
So basically you don't have anything? Don't presume to lecture others on history when you don't know it yourself.
I doubt very seriously that the UN will ever have more than limited powers to keep peace and impose economic sanctions. We will always be able to opt out because we are the US and no one wants to mess with us.
Are you new to the internet? Im not going to go out of my way to find factual similarities between the US and Ancient Rome just because someone is "calling me out" on it.
I do agree it is inevitable, and the EU is certainly the first way this is taking shape. The UN will be the entire global aspect for it, it will link the EU to the north/south American and asian versions.
So when you wrote your original posts you didn't really know what you were talking about?
Much better to just throw something out there and see if people believe it?
That is CLEARLY not what I stated, anyone with a complete thought process could surely understand.
Now if you want to get back on topic, by all means i am up for discussion.
The name could be a variety of things, I don't think it makes a huge difference
It will happen though
Sure. Can you tell me how I was wrong in my post about the league of nations then? I'd love to hear how our isolationist policies didn't embolden fascist states in the 1930s
It is not the US's job to police the world.
Would you like the long drawn out answer or the short and condensed?
I agree. That's why great powers in alliance have traditionally had the most success.
Whichever you prefer
Thats whats weird, im fairly certain joetheogre is a liberal but by saying what he is saying he is wanting a more active(conservative) military
Long drawn out please answer please.
Give me a bit and ill reply with the info
I actually think we should draw back our military expenditures. I am merely arguing in favor of multi-national bodies that prevent the emergence of rogue states and thus wars.
That's what the nuclear bomb is for, to put those who eff up in their place. Seemed to work well with Japan, woudln't you agree?
Thank you. Can I get the short answer also?
