    These articles and videos are a pretty good summary of what most non-Americans know and most Americans don't know.

    Apparently, according to the map on your thirdworldtraveller.com, Russia is a third-world country.

    Let's all scratch our heads in bemusement.

    All of these so-called "conservative" politicians nowadays aren't real American militants any more than the pissant Democrats are. There are no real hardcore American nationalists except me and a few other sad freaks here and there on the net.

    The Republicans aren't nationalists. They're moneyists, as in they only care about money, oil money, mostly. And money is boring. War - fun. Money - boring. It's time somebody said it out loud: "**** Free Enterprise, I just want America to kick ass!"

    And the first step in building a real ass-kicking American Imperial Army is making a few overpaid military "executives" pay for not wanting to defend our country. So let's find out who's responsible for 9/11, Iraq and Afghanistan. Once we've identified the military brass and politicians who messed up, we'll settle this the way the Romans would've done it: put'em on a bus in leg-irons and unload 'em at the WTC. Then lead 'em up to a chopping block, one by one, and cut their ****ing heads off. Then, take the heads, and stick em on spikes in front of the Pentagon.

    Then go out there and kick some foreign ass. Not for money. For Glory and the goddamn American Empire. That's what I call "right-wing."

    Sorry about my outburst (which I deleted) earlier. I'm just going to have to humour this nutter. I reckon you have to be some nerd in his parents basement or something to believe war is so good.

    I reckon you've been playing too much command and conquer to come out with stuff like that.

    That's why it sucks being an American militarist: somebody comes up with a great idea like this and then before we can even get a good head of war-mongering up, you liberals have to come in here with your crybaby nancy boy posts. And thats when it hits you, then you realize that none of the jerks who run this country, not even the ones who get called "hawks," or the ones running the US military, really want America to kick ass.

    They want to make money or they want to push their own weird religious agendas, or both, usually both. But none of them really like America.

    Look, I don't enjoy saying this. Nobody's more disgusted about it than me. An America that kicked ass, that really ruled the world the way we could, that's all I dream about.

    What else have I got? The Desert in May. Fat, sweaty and alone. You can turn the air conditioning up to full when you're home, but at the office they keep it at an "energy-saving" 76 degrees. "Energy-saving", yeah, as in "let the wage slaves sweat as long as we save on our power bill." You can't keep your coat on at that temperature, and when you take it off the white shirt makes you look even fatter. I see myself reflected in the windows everytime I go pick up a fax from the machine, and it's like this instant wake up call: whoa, that's me, that fat guy with the stained armpits? Whoa. No wonder.

    Are we supposed to sympathize? Poor little militarist doesn't get his way...aww.

    That'd be because they're elected representatives who reflect the will of the people of the United States, who don't want their country simply to "kick ass." Or are you not a fan of democracy either?

    Welcome to capitalism. This country was founded on it. Get used to it.

    Those first two sentences are direct quotes from Michael Moore's "Stupid White Men...And Other Excuses." Ironic, no? I mean, you might be even crazier than Michael Moore, and certainly in a different way, but still. Extremists think alike, no?

    Oh, so it's an inadequacy thing. I'm sorry that you hate your life. But for all intents and purposes...grow up and deal with it.

    I'm a war nerd. A backseat sergeant. I know what I am. All I have to do is look down at the keyboard and there's my hairy white gut slopping over it, and there's crumbs between the keys from the fake homemade soft'n'chewy big cookies in the vending machine downstairs. I mean they made me pay for the last keyboard because I spilled Diet Coke all over it. Diet Coke, the most fattening drink in the world. Every web pig in the world is swimming in it, farting off the side of the swivel chair, aroma-free carbonation farts, or at least you hope they are.

    So I'm unhealthy. No ****, Sigmund. I live in the Desert which is a death sentence already, and I do about fifteen hours a day at this desk. 6 or 7 hours entering civilian numbers for the paycheck and the rest surfing the war news. I like war. So do you or you wouldn't still be reading my posts. So shut up or leave.

    American peace truly sucks. (That's what I live in and work in: American peace. Townhouses in a dry riverbed. Scrub acreage with fancy British names. America the hot and stupid.)

    That's why we need a war now and then. You can drain your dick at every bondage site on the web, but you can't really drain your head there, it takes something bigger like a decent war and some of those guncamera shots. I figure about one a year.

    Exactly what you are, a sad pathetic loner probably, whos political ideals leave you isolated and ultimatley of no use to society. What you want is full of hate, and serves no decent purpose. People on the right wing of society are needed, to keep a balance. But you are never going to get it your way, and you are a negative effect on the world. Go get a life, do something other than whine about how you want the KKK to be in full power and go kill some Iraqs..

    An America that could rule the world the way we could? Through brute force? Now, there's a great ideal for a democratic nation to strive for, yes indeed!


    So, here you sit blogging on company time. You must be a government employee.

    So you think you've got it all sorted do you armchair general, that your views are right. Its funny though that your a loser in life at the same time. Sort yourself out before the rest of the world. Why don't you shut up and leave, go on a ****ing diet, and get some psychiatric treatment before you go and kill someone for being black or something.

    Perhaps you ought to have joined the armed forces. You'd have more of a chance at satisfying that hankering for killing that you hold so dear.

    Allow me to paraphrase: "I'll say what I want. Since you read what I write you should shut up or go away." Basically you can say whatever, but I can't? Nice. Very nice. Tell me - do you enjoy goose-stepping?

    In order for a nation to go to war, there still have to be people on the homefront, doing menial jobs to make sure they have materials to fight with. From what you've already described you're hardly in peak physical condition - where do you suppose you'd wind up?

    Go read some Thomas Malthus, you'd like him.

    Seek counseling. And hurry.

    This bloke is so funny. Seriously, you've made my day. Your went to a pentacostal church, you live in the desert, your very white, fat, a self proclaimed war nerd, who bashes off to bondage, who thinks about muslim have anal sex on a thursday night, believes we should stick peoples heads on spikes, and you call Muslims wierd and uncivillised?

    You hate the way the modern world can be so pathetic, and sometimes I do, everyone does. But you take it to a whole new level. And the best part is, YOU ARE THE CLASSIC PATHETIC PRODUCT OF THIS WORLD YOU HATE SO MUCH.

    People like me are getting so rare nobody even recognizes one of us when they come across it. We're like those damn woodpeckers flapping around the swamps, except nobody's looking for us. Hell, they'd send the exterminator out if they saw one.

    The whole political landscape these days-the whole swamp-is divided between peacenik leftists who think war is wrong because it hurts children and other living things, and neocons who back the Iraq disaster even though they know it means pouring American lives (though not their lives) and money into the sewer.

    There's nobody speaking for simple pro-Americans like me, except maybe Pat Buchanan (and he weirds me out too with his thing about Mexicans. What's wrong with Mexicans? They're the best soldiers we've got. Just check the casualty lists from Iraq: they read like the employee timesheet at your local burrito shack.)
