ImNoGod: I clearly stated, Every world power ended witha war.

Germany was a powerfull country, bu no where near GB.

GB was the world power at the time.

When WWI ended, it marked the end of GB`s power and influence as it was before, for various reasons, mostly money.

See it now?

Deevo114: I know the there`s a differenc,e I`m the first one to point it out. And I did make the distinction between the two.

Secondly, yes, knowing more in this case is better. It always is.

Thirdly, I know for a fact I am better them him, 141 IQ, best schooling in the country with one of the best programs (IBO) Yeah, I`m smarter and more knowledgable.

Johnnyk123: Thats not what a conspiracy theory is.
All that I have been saying is that the Gov lied, it was not about the fuel, it was about showing off to the Chinese, which in itself, is a bda idea because it *could* spawn another Arms race.

Go reread what I said.

ImNoGod: Then you just fail. Other people got the point, go take a history course outside highschool, graduate first.

Then i fail to see your point. Even if GB did collapse post WWI it matters not, as they were not the top dog. Before WWI Germany or arguably the U.S. was. Therefore for your reference to make sense you should have said GERMANY, not Great Britain.

Johnny, no, Canada`s government, like all other forms of governments, is not entirely honest about its affairs.

Google "Chuck Cadman."

Oh yeah, um...Johnny, if you saw the location...AND the picture, it`s impossible to not notice the gender.

Lol wow.

You`re trying really hard to prove that the U.S. government is lying.

All you`re trying to prove is your own little conspiracy theory about the satillite incident.
And that all we`re trying to do is show off to the world. Please oh please post some links to prove your point. Because without factual evidence to support your theory it`s just plain ol` hear-say.

And let me ask you this. What makes your Canadian government so reliable and trust worthy? What`s to stop them from lying to it`s people?

Stop trying to make the U.S. government out to be the bad guy, b/c we`re not.

And as for the male/female dispute, I went by the picture, and the location.

AKoalaMeatPie, gethering knowledge does not make a person smart because knowledge does not equal intelligence. Knowledge is the ability to retain and regurgitate information. Being smart and intelligent is the ability to use the information to make informed conclusions. You talk of your education making you smarter than other people and this is wrong. I myself have a degree and a masters at 22 years old. It is impossible for me to say that I am smarter than any person writing on this page because all my education shows is my ability to learn and retain information.

You being 20 and another person being 15 does not make you smarter than them! Just because you have been to college and they have not does not make you smarter than them! You say your arguments are based on logic but I now can not whole heartedly agree.

People can we just make it clear that Great Britain did not cease to be a superpower after WW1. If GB had ceased to be a superpower after WW1 then WW2 would just not have happened. If GB hadn`t of been a superpower after WW1 then they simply would not have jumped in head first against the Nazi`s. WW2 finished GB off; firstly due to massive expenditure on the war effort and secondly due to even bigger debts to the USA (which were only paid off at the bigging of the millenium). You can`t run an Empire with no money in the bank.

If angelfan`s opinion is not "invalid" to me,
Then my opinion of you is not invalid either.

I use logic and reasoned argument to make a point, if people can`t do the same, then yes, what they have to say is invalid.

Another thing, people`s opinions are not "invalid". People can have plenty of opinions, I can agree and disagree with all of them.

The thing is, when it`s just far flunged like what "angelfan" said... It has no backbone.

It`s like me calling you a whore right now.

That was to prove a point.
What would make my opinion invalid?

Well, for starters, I have no idea who you are other then that post you just made. I then took a small point and blew it up many times over.

Angel`s "opinion" is invalid because he has no idea who the hell I am other then I post a lot, shooting down what others say. Also, this is my idea of fun. Some people play videogames, I argue, which is a lot more productive.

Now do I do other things, yes. Do I go out? Yes. Am I good with the ladies? My nickname is Jesus. You tell me.

I`m not aying VGs are a waste of time, I play them, just less then others.

1- I never critcised anyone`s grammar.
Ever.

2- Read that post you mentioned again. I did not say what you said. I said "You`re 15, I`m 20 I am at least twice as educated then you, more knowledgeable, smarter" Big difference.

I Graduated from the IBO program and lots of college.

I just invalidaded everything you said about me.
And no, I never criticse anybody`s spelling or grammar (unless they do it to me first, at which point I will point out the most obvious and hold it against them) as I am aware that I let things slip threw.

I do not give a flying damn if you`re nice.

You speak out against me, I will speak out against you. I see it as a challenge.

Serisouly, why did you say that? Do you think it`s going to give you an edge because you`re female. Sounds pretty whorish to me.

Why? because you drop it after saying all those things, it`s manupilative. "I`m not trying to -" Oh shut up.

@ Koala: I distinctly remember you having a slinging match with young Declan191919 in which you said something along the lines of "you`re 15, I`m 20, therefore smarter than you" That`s not an intelligent debate. But hey, you go right ahead if you like.

Also, before you criticise someone`s grammer, maybe do a basic spell check on your own post. It just saves embarassment.

NB...Don`t bother telling me that I misspelled criticise. That`s how it`s meant to be spelt (I`m Australian).

Also, I`m not mean. I`m very nice actually. I just don`t like it when everyone else`s opinion on here is practically invalid to you.

Peace :)

This is funny.
I make good points.
I make really good points.

And still, many people like to point at me, trying to demean and intimidate me.

It`s funny, I`m using intelligence, logic, and reasoned argument and these people just go "You`re a big stupid" - "You have no life" - "But I`m only 14, are you sure it`s ok?"

Which leads me to believe I am as great as my ego tells me. You can`t touch me - at all - so you end up using slurs and calling me names.

Because you know I`m right, you want to destroy me, but you can`t. You know I`m right, you`re only proving how much better I am than you.

This is great.

Thank you.
Serisouly, thank you, you`re only proving me right.

^^ I think the point Koala was trying to make is that, although Britain was indeed on the winning side in WWI, it marked the end of Britain`s time as the world`s dominant superpower status. This was because of crippling debt and economic fallout from the war. Quote from Wikipedia "From being the world`s largest overseas investor, it became one of its biggest debtors with interest payments forming around 40% of all government spending. Inflation more than doubled between 1914 and its peak in 1920, while the value of the Pound Sterling fell by 61.2%."

[quote]OK, this whole satalite thing is BS.
They did not bl;ow it up because of the fuel tank.

The tank causes no threat whatsoever.

If anything, they blew it up because the Chinese made a ground to space misile launch and destroyed one of their own satalites a year back.

The U.S. is scared sh°tless of the Chinese.

By Blowing up this satalite "in the anme of safety" They showed that "Yeah, we`re able to!" Only, it wasn`t as good as the Chinese (Rofl, ironic eh?)

Now chances are this will spawn a new arms race.
Why? It`s just the way it goes.
Competition is afoot.
Go U.S.A.

And if you study your history, everything is cyclical.

If only historians where hired in congress.

Every world power ends with a war, ever new World power starts with a War.

France, Napoleon, 1812

Standards, Yeah, but Napolean was the end of France`s power, that was my point.

Johnnyk123: I don`t not like the US. I don`t like their attitude and lying.

Nor is what I said equal to "I`m against the US". They wanted to show off to the Chinese, showing they can do the same, but they had to make this entire media spin BS instead of just launching it like the Chinese.

But you wouldn`t understand that concidering you can`t even read properly. Or maybe you`re calling me a girl as an insult, which would make you four years old. And sexist.

And no matter how patriotic you are, If the US gets into a real invasion war with China, The US is fu¢ked. It`s not just Who has the best technology.

And no, I don`t distaste America / US.

The US is Part of America, the US is not America.

Koala, Napolean wasn`t taken down by the War of 1812. He was taken down by a revolt, inspired by the Declaration of Indepence. He then stole a boat and rode back to power, shortly to be overthrown again.

china is dependent as our trade deficit with them is huge. china was also vilified for shooting down their satellite without any warning. I have no problem with china but if a war were to break out, both sides would lose. and pace of technological advancement is deceiving, their growth out paces most, if not all, other countries but still are far from achieving our level, looking at growth alone w/o considering level doesn`t mean anything

Pat125, I do work for the government, and the satellite actually held a death ray recently developed by the Chinese after studying a crashed UFO in northern Siberia. They planned to use it to vaporise the USA`s chief export, idiot celebrities, but luckily one plucky spy switched the interior circuitry of the satellite. The Chinese discovered too late that it would only play "It`s a Small World" on loop instead of firing. The US shot it down just in case though.

I mean, it`s completely impossible that the US government shot it down without a motive other than protecting the public. Why would they want to demonstrate their ability to shoot down a satellite on anything other than a satellite that was much lower than the one the Chinese shot down?

And thank God for our lead scientist and expert on everything KoalaMeatPie! What would we do without your inside knowledge on everything?


Seriously people, until you work for the government, stop making conspiracy-laced assumptions about sh*t you know nothing about. B-|

i agree with loffahboy that china is still very dependent

although it seems that they have the power now to influence the world (they have been but i mean the other way) , they still do need the background support of big countries like the US

and china aint that dumb either
if they start a war with US, guess where taiwanese (the china-haters) would be standing?

The US has a lot of money invested into China threwglobalization projects, like TEDA (Tian`jin Economical Development Area) wherethe US spends to build factories, bla bla, Reaping rewards for China and the US.

Should the US go to war with China, The US will be the one losing a lot of money.

Thats One of the reasons the US is scarred sh°tless.

The other is the sheer number of people, spies everywhere, incredibly fast paced advancements in technologie and a huge army.

When China shot down their satalite, they just shot it down.

US? Big media showing how powerfull they are.

China just does it and people quiver, US has to put on a show.

Actually, I get that a lot. I have a habit of using phrasing my words fancy on the off-chance I speak seriously about stuff. It annoys a lot of people. |-X

I dont claim to know much about the politics of china, but from what little I do know, a lot of exporting goods goes between the two countries. I`d figure that would play a major factor in whether or not the US and china would have a cold war and whatnot, wouldn`t it?

Keep in mind that China is still very dependent on the western world and the US for exports and whatnot. That`s bound to factor into things. Though a new cold war is possible, it`s going to be a whole different animal than the one last century.

The Satalite failed,
The Americans had a big bonner.
They decided to spin some BS story about the satalite crashing will cause it`s fuel tank to rupture and poison many people.

(Which was of no concern for every other satalite entering orbit and MIR station)
(Many satalites enter atmopshere each year)

Worst case scenario, the satilite crashes, tank ruptures and spills it`s content over an rea the size of a football field.

Anbyways, they spin that story, and decid to retrofit a rocket to shoot it down in orbit.

The rest I explained.

IT wasn`t as good as the chinese because the satalite was much lower in altitude. Couple of other things to, but thats the main issue.
