    Well, you don't really need a video to realize that.

    "Religions are, by definition, metaphors, after all: God is a dream, a hope, a woman, an ironist, a father, a city, a house of many rooms, a watchmaker who left his prize chronometer in the desert, someone who loves you—even, perhaps, against all evidence, a celestial being whose only interest is to make sure your football team, army, business, or marriage thrives, prospers, and triumphs over all opposition. Religions are places to stand and look and act, vantage points from which to view the world. So none of this is happening. Such things could not occur. Never a word of it is literally true.”

    As much as I hate to say it, "greatest country" doesn't mean shit when it comes down to war.


    Your country might be "great" but you will have shit for defense when the time comes.

    i.e Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark.
    I am the seer in the dark,
    the vagabond of yore,
    valediction.
    I am the sum of all your parts,
    and proprietor of all.
    A miasma,
    the conclusion,
    blackmonger of Inlé,
    valediction.
    Synapses fray,
    my form now vivid,
    as torpor sets and blood grows tepid.
    With every ounce of flesh now offered,
    I hold your corpse within my coffers.
    Knitted cells now split asunder,
    stand alongside me brother.

    If your country was so great.. It doesn't even need to go to war... A great country can counter war and prevent it unlike most countries... Just want to pick on the small ones and feel superior..

    And how has America avoided war exactly?

    I'm pretty sure America failed when it tried to "avoid" WW2.

    I'm pretty sure everyone can agree that America did a good thing going to war in WWII, many would argue that they should have gone sooner.

    However, America used a "neutrality" agreement up until the end of the first world war.

    It did not get directly involved with International conflicts until then.

    There isn't such things as the greatest country. Everyone has their own personal opinion.
    I can say that Singapore is the best country just because I like staying in Singapore. You can say that Singapore is one of the worst country because if there is any wars, Singapore have weak defenses to protect ourself.
    Still, I want to migrate to USA because I like how open the country is.
