    Scomo has flown over to USA to meet with Trump

    Australia is going to get roped into another manufactured U.S war but it's ok it's because we love democracy and freedom

    The rebels were paid by Iran using US weapons, the plot thickens.

    In a country as heavily populated as the US 4400 is an infinitely small portion of the population. The arms manufacturing produced by a new war would be a great economic benefit to some wealthy and influential people.

    If they can profit both during (with supply of arms) and after (through the procurement of oil) it helps the US. If there's a war, they won't be able to resist being involved in a large enough capacity to promote some patriotic sentiment from the American citizens.

    Sounds familiar.... we have seen in many times over with ISIS using western vehicles and arsenal, Iraq getting paid to take over Kuwait and even back to the Iraq/Iran war in the 80's were both sides were funded to fight each other.

    The sad thing about Australia is we are relatively small in terms of population.

    We are an easy target and really cannot defend ourselves on our own.

    We have no choice but to pander to the super powers like the USA and China for our own good.

    I think that with the use of some more specific language, this argument could hold a lot more weight.

    Donald Trump has clearly shown he doesn't want war. He campaigned on this and since becoming President has not started any new wars, and if anything the middle east and north korea are now more stable areas (at least more stable than they were a few years ago).

    However, there is a huge industrial military complex in Washington DC that loves war, makes shit loads of money from war and also maintains their power from war. These are the people who I think you are talking about. Some of them are in government, some of them are lobbyists and some of them work for private defence contractors.

    So I think it's not right to say the "US want war". But I do think it would be more accurate to say that the US industrial military complex want war.

    And I think it's a good think Trump is the president because he's the only one willing to put his balls on the line to tell these people to fk off.

    Murika is a sinking ship. Australia should become China's lap dog.

    Honestly,
    I don’t have an issue with anyone regardless of where they are from

    There are good people and fuckwits from all countries.

    To generalise though, I do prefer Chinese over Americans also.

    Chinese are generally humble and go about their life with little fuss.

    Americans do seem to be loud and annoying.
    But hey who am I to judge

    I am no picnic either.
