OT: Thats kinda circular reasoning, Al Qaeda gets a lot of support BECAUSE USA is fighting in Afghanistan and ME. The irony...
True, if the Taliban had not taken our sheep for food we would not have gone there. It's not like it was a heaven for Al Qaeda or anything.
How about you say THANK YOU America. As we type here back and forth the US navy--at a great cost--is circling the globe making sure the trade routes are open, the Somali pirates don't hijack (too many) ships, that China leaves India, Taiwan (like those chips in your computer?) Japan etc alone, US drone planes are flying in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen and god knows here to take out an Al Qaeda or two that may be plotting to blow a buss in your country. All these benefit, at least, all of the western world.
The US Army, US Marines, Air Force and US Navy are the reason EU spends barely nothing in defense, that's the truth and you have done so for 60+ years. Do you think Iran, Saddamm in his day, USSR, Russia, North Korea, China etc fear more a stern letter from Ashton and the threat of a EU meeting or the US Military?
Listen to Gates, USA has had it, being ungrateful is pushing it.
ROBERT GATES: Frankly, many of those allies sitting on the sidelines do so not because they do not want to participate, but simply because they cannot. The military capabilities simply aren't there.
The mightiest military alliance in history is only 11 weeks into an operation against a poorly armed regime in a sparsely populated country, yet many allies are beginning to run short of munitions, requiring the U.S. once more to make up the difference.
Your GDP is even bigger than USA, start sharing costs, if you don't America to "police the world". If Russia starts to roll tanks into EU territory, you'll be all occupied by the time you agree on the text of latter to send to them. US Military is what stops many of you from being Georgia.
Now more on topic: The problem is that UN sucks at domain management and ICANN has shown it's incompetence with UDRP where names are being lost for stupid reasons. What to do?
