Infractions for what? We were having a discussion! If there are no discussions forums are only question and answer sessions.

I'm just correcting you. There are many things you can receive an infraction for. Look it up. I've received a couple myself.

Not necessarily. Why the thought that only the USA has the qualities to be a world power?? It's not any singular on demographical aspects, nor territorial... the truth is that it's position on the global scenario is not by any means "necessary". I'm not saying that Brazil would be eligible to take the US place (which will never happen, purely by reasons of human ressources, even in the best case scenario), but it's very naive to think tha India or China, for instace, will stay undeveloped countries forever. The tendency we get at the 21st. century is that the great per capita inequalities amongst the nations will eventually disappear.

In consideration of your exemplar behavior (and I mean it! No sarcasm, seriously ), which I very much admire in this forum, I feel in need to apologize for that sentence. I'm sorry if I offended anyone, it truly wasn't my inten

I can talk for what I speculate is the general concerns of those who come to this thread are and most don't give a fark to go through pages about others catty squabbling and opinions of geo-politics dynamics and power projection either now or decades down the road. This is a thread about the plans and details of the bids and that is why most come to read this thread.

If others disagree with they are free to say otherwise.

This video is amazing. Regardless of who you're for just watch it. Yes it does take place in Chicago. Yes it does start out with someone saying "lets make some noise Chicago". But it is in no way affiliated with Chicago 2016. Very cool. Thanks!...................Oprah thinks she's god btw. Bitch is crazy. (crazy rich)

Yeah, but it will happen faster if US keep its power along the 21st century. Want it or not, they are and will still be for a long time the economical balance of the world, but I agree in the point that from now on the world becomes more and more less dependent of US.

We have more countries considered key players in the global economy and sharing the power with US, including Brazil.

It's a paradoxical thought, but we need the US strong to diminish its power.

PS: Referring to US, should I use "its" or "their"? It's "their", isn't it?

Well I'm glad to hear that it's the world's opinion to see us diminish. I won't even smash you on this comment, which I easily could.

It's not a desire of the world to see U.S. in misery. We want US at high levels, but we want us as well, don't you understand?

It's not diminishing yours life quality, it's to diminish U.S. power relatively to the rest of the world.

I'm not making a commie speech, but international relations is heading toward this way. Brazil and China, for example, are trying to do monetary reserves with Yuan and Real, to become less dependent of Dollar and U.S. policy.

So just because we may have a higher quality of life, according to you, other nations should drag us down to their levels? And what's your reasoning behind this? Just because? Sounds familiar. Sort of like how the IOC should vote for Rio, because South America has never hosted before.
