I find it interesting how you acknowledge your omission and/or misreading of my posts yet immediately launch into yet another tirade based on the same flawed assumptions and assertions. What's with that? (On second thought, never mind.)
I can only ask you AGAIN to READ and COMPREHEND what is written and then THINK before writing. Try to quote accurately and in-context.
As an example, if you intend to make blanket accusations such as, "wild unsupported claims" -- I would suggest you quote EXACTLY which claims you are speaking of and your evidence that they are 'wild'. Save the sensationalism for the National Enquirer.
Having lived and worked in 'developing' countries outside North America for more than 12 years -- I've seen things you can't even imagine. Things that can have you killed or worse. Your lack of knowledge in these areas or whether you believe or not is not my concern.
Also be aware of the protocol for the forum. If you have points that are completely unrelated to the topic at hand -- give the poster your personal email address and take it up with them off-line. (My email is below.)
To clarify your twisting of my words -- I am not 'against' the US or ANY other country. I am, however, against ANYONE (individual, government OR company) who indulges in immoral or illegal behaviour in the name of profit -- particularly when that exploits others, contributes to the distruction of the planet or the people on it. If you have a problem with that, it also is none of my concern.
And finally, if you are trying to make some kind of point, please don't obfuscate it such as the statement, "the two nations that border the USA". If you mean "Canada and Mexico", what's the harm in just saying that instead of trying to sound important?
