AlwaysPO'd Dude So tell us what country will we attack next ? Korea. we attacked , and lost 36,000 young American soldiers slaughtered 92,000 wounded (maimed) Vietnam we attacked , and lost 58,000 young American soldiers slaughtered 153,000 wounded (maimed) IRAQ /Afghanistan, we attacked and lost (losing) 6,000 young American soldiers slaughtered. 42,000 wounded Are we safer now ? like our corrupt politicians in Washington constantly tell the masses. And green energy is coming ,because the resources of the planet are finite and depleting , whilst the world population is growing. If you knew anything about clean green energy, you would put your money on developing "fuel cells" not battery powered cars. which are chemical dinosaurs Fuel cells have a higher energy efficiency level than oil (gasoline) and are power sources , unlike batteries which are inefficient storage devices. So are we safer now Dude, that we have squander $trillions on WARS attacking countries that did not attack the USA.

we only lost them due to policy coming from home. America wins every time it sets out to do so. so really we only loose at nation-building and nothing else. The korean war is still officially going on, btw.

Vietnam and Korea weren't American wars, America was there to assist in supply and training local military. I assure you, if America was to go into either of those two countries in full swing, we would have smashed them like we have every single enemy in the past 250 years. As far as this "green energy" goes, if the government was so into "saving" natural resources, why do we still spend 100s of billions of dollars on oil based fuel just to go to space? As far as "are we safe"? Yes and no. America is simply too strong and well equipped to be completely invaded and overcome by an outside enemy. However, i predict that America is slowly collapsing and soon will completely fail in a very similar way the ancient romans did. If u dont know about that, i strongly suggest you pick up a book about it and read it then take a look at how things are here in America today. The vast similarities will really boggle your minds
