Are you drunk! Europe doesn't need the US! Us realises this thats why they need to keep some wars/trouble going on in the area. Can you imagine if all the European/Asian continent just managed to get on together as partners.
Who needs all the wild Bill Hitchcock's from the US, go down South America and shoot that lot… oh you already did that :laugh:

Good bye Uncle Sam and good riddance..

When Rome fell the whole planet went in to the dark ages for about a thousand years. Humans lived with very much less. Be careful what you wish for as you may get it. We are I believe on the verge of a world wide recession that could get much worse it there is some type of war or if the momentary system falls.

You guy across the pond read and believe everything anti American you read.  The picture you paint for yourself is much worse that what is real. When the system is replaced it is likely to be much less kind than what you now enjoy.

The world never came to an end when the British Empire came to an end? Life goes as it has for thousands of years, history tells us that. So I will not loose any sleep about the fact that one day the same fate will await the US.
Every empire comes to an end. Or is anyone here so stupid they think they can re-write history and the US empire is here for eternity  :laugh:

The US empire will not end in your lifetime, so go ahead and keep dreaming your sad and delusional "dreams".   :laugh:

 :Zzzzsleep: :Zzzzsleep:  The Evil empire is such a wonderful place especially when it comes to women , so much so you have to come and steal the European women :ROFL:

Both China and Russia are sinking.
The United state's economy, has survived Obama, and the future looks great, with a republican president.
With cheap oil, the United states prospers, if oil rises, the United states steps up production, and we prosper, the United states is after all is not a one trick pony.
Like it or not, the world would go to hell in short order, without the United states keeping things turning.
 Buy them rubles and what happens when Russian goes bankrupt?
Honestly Russia is a third world nation.
It would cost trillions to modernize their infrastructure.
Putin is spending beyond their means for military, and funding war in Ukraine, along with other expenditures that do not move Russia in the right direction.
China has manufacturing, but they have limited natural resources.
What is it with you brits, envy?

Actually China is very dependent on the US. Nearly the only country China has a trade balance with is the US. They are a one horse show also that is selling to the US. Yes China sells to many other countries but most of those countries China buy more than it sells.

In 2007 a US bank failed and months latter it trigger a banking crisis in America. At first Putin was so happy the America was finally coming down. The French president thought it was funny. Most other countries kept their thoughts to themselves.  A few weeks latter our banking crisis had Putin very upset as our banking crisis was destroying the Russian economy. The French President soon had a different tune also. If you remember as soon as our economy drop the price of oil dropped.  Then banking problem spread all across Europe.  Chinese factories were idle. The world economy slow down and nearly all industrial nations were affected.

If this all started with Lehman Brother Bank failing just think what will happen if the whole system came down. Russia and China never recover from this one bank failure. Both countries had great balance sheets going into 2008 and not so great afterward. Europe had a huge recession. Of course, this one bank failure exposed all the weakness in the system. But the global system is not stronger now. If anything it is weaker.

European failures would have an effect on us also. The two geographical areas are married whether you guys like it or not. We are sharing common future.   

What we have now is a good chance that a Russian/Chinese failure will be the start to bring the system down this time.  A war like in ww2 is no long an effective method of combat as the world is too interconnected.

The real Question is, are you Brits Drunk?  You really think that what happens in other countries does not matter???

You do not understand how the global economy is both very fragile and interconnected. No one likely to live in caves but the UK could turn into a UKrane. In 2007 Putin did not think the Russia cared about a fail bank in the US until the price of oil dropped to about 1/3 of what it was.

Maybe you want to explain why not that many years ago women from Russia were marrying fat old westerners to escape the economic poverty.

Russia's economy improved ,but outside of Moscow and maybe a handful of the other cities, very little investment in Russian infrastructure.

By the way, my focus is on Ukrainian women, so not a problem to over look Russia.

If only.  The US is traditionally isolationist.  The problem with Europe and Asia is their penchant for sprouting megalomaniacal, homicidal dictators.  If we don't nip it in the bud, pretty soon we're up to our elbows in alligators. 

You guys are like our batshit crazy granny who needs to be monitored before she goes off her meds and harms herself.  Except that granny won't, y'know, commit genocide and there won't be tens of millions of dead people as a result. 

What modern history has shown us is that Europe needs Adult Supervision, fairly constantly... 

Good bye Uncle Sam and good riddance..

LOL.  Someday, soon enough, Europeans will be crying and begging for Uncle Sam back...whilst they are licking the boots of their Muslim overlords.

Good luck....

Yes, I thought that was a rather childish response - not up to intelligent debate level :(   

Simply because we aren't all 'sheeple' and believe what the Kremlin / no.10 / Whitehouse, et al, claim- shouldn't mean we dislike a nation / it's people - just don't approve of leaders policies

The real desperate ones have to move to EE, they know their
women would not stay with them, if the brought them to
a first world nation :laugh:

Hmm.. that is also particularly daft ... Are you suggesting a Russian / Ukrainian lady coming to live in the west is only doing so to 'escape' E.Europe ?!   There was me thinking it was something to do with our personalities  / famlily values..  :chuckle:


I would happily live in Sochi - if I can keep bringing in the bacon from the west. O.K. it has had an inordinate amount of capital spent on it - that will never be paid back in non RU lang tourist trade - but that is GREAT if you want to use the facilities  / enjoy the nature.

One can live well in E.Europeans countries  - incl . Russia - if one doesn't want get into Politics.  Sochi sure doesn't feel 'third world'
