    To be fair though he deserved far worse.

      That's very informative, thanks. I've always wanted to visit Vietnam and Cambodia to scope out their beaches for a nice little retirement shack in the middle of nowhere. My plan has always been to become a rural hermit near some sandy beach with clean water.

      Edit: I'm aware that they do not allow foreigners to buy land but they will allow you to buy an apartment or put up a small business IIRC.

        Goodlum, your pro Israel views make me sad. Like calling Iran evil. Was that before the US destroyed their Democracy? Israel is strangling Gaza economically and militarily, and that has created one of the worst humanitarian crises anywhere in the world. I have been in Hebron. Go read Noam Chomsky and get broadened

          It is possible to support Israel, and Israel's continued existence,

          and to have sympathies for the humanitarian situation for many Palestinians,

          and to also realize that the leaders of Palestine have an economic stranglehold on their own people as well.

          And prolong the situation.

            Oh fucking fuckity fuck. If the people of the Gaza strip want peace all they have to do is STOP BEING FUCKING TERRORISTS seriously it's that simple. Do you really expect anyone to cry over a bunch of bigoted pricks getting missle enemas because they can't play nice with those outside of their batshit circle??

              No it isn't, because the Palestinians do not fucking want the continued existence of Israel.

                    There is a difference between a people's government, and the people.

                    I do not like the Palestinian government, but a don't care if a child is Palestinian or American or Israeli when it comes to the welfare of children.

                    And it is always the children that suffer for the foolishness or inaction or actions of the adults they are born to.

                          Quick answer yes, this is not Russia after the fall of the USSR.

                          Full explanation below..

                          The Russian Federation is one of the lowest ranked countries concerning their National debt.
                          http://worldpopulationreview.com/cou...national-debt/

                          Russia’s debt ratio is one of the lowest in the world at 19.48% of its GDP. Russia is the ninth least indebted country in the world. Russia’s debt is currently at a total of over 14 billion руб ($216 billion USD). Most of Russia’s external debt is private.
                          Here are their GNI and GDP, but your results may vary.

                          http://www.worldeconomics.com/grossd...uct/russia.gdp
                          RUSSIA GDP: 3,459 TRILLION INTERNATIONAL DOLLARS (2018)
                          https://www.investopedia.com/insight...top-economies/

                          Russia Nominal GDP: $1.63 trillion
                          Russia GDP (PPP): $4.21 trillion
                          Go read Pat’s post and then mine one more time. Those numbers are billions, not millions. So, yes, 800 million would be and is nothing. If you meant “billions” it would be more than the US spends, which I never stated. If I was unclear, I do not believe we spend 10x more money than Russia on military budgeting. As I said, the US leads, but the gap is closer Than the numbers originally posted.

                              Yeah, lots of South Viet wanted us to stay but they no longer had much say in the matter and the Northern forces moving South weren't likely to be very receptive to the idea.

                              Edit: The resentment against Western colonizers in Vietnam was pretty significant at the time and many patriotic Vietnamese feared their nation would be divided up as the spoils of another country.

                              It really was a war for independence to many Vietnamese.

                                Oh, they want our money, they just don't want us to have any say in how they spend it.
