The list of countries interested in the F-35 is even longer than the
list of countries France has lost wars to.


I have no love for French, but with all that French bashing around I can't
say I have high regards on Americans either.

We're crushed. Crushed, I tell you! How can we make it
up to you, personally?

And to add something, I can tell it to you in more than three others
languages, if you are able to understand any word of them...

When Europeans speak this way there always seems to be some implicit
threat to stop helping us in the future if we fall out of favor with
you. Europe in general and Finland specifically have never done anything
for the US and never will. All your threats, both explicit and implicit
are empty and we know it. There is no cost to the US in falling out of
favor with Europe.


Economists are concerned with the size of the current account deficit
because it reflects the amount of money the country must obtain from
foreigners to finance the shortfall between what American consumers are
purchasing in foreign products and the amount being earned from U.S.
export sales.

European investors are now leaving the American market. US economy will
probably crash in a few years.

"No cost"? Don't be so sure. If the Europeans get angry, I mean really
angry, they might accuse the US of being "imperial" or "isolationist"
depending on whether it's Monday or Tuesday. That my friend is a fate
too terrible to contemplate.

The French, God bless them, are finally joining the war against Islamic
extremism. Their targets, which will now confront the full force of
l'état, are schoolgirls who wear Muslim head scarves in French public
schools.

America is in a bond rally and mortgage interest rates are at an historic
low; what you write is patently rediculess.

a)

threat to stop helping us in the future if we fall out of favor with
you.


b)

for the US and never will. All your threats, both explicit and implicit

c)

favor with Europe.


a) Well actually there was no threat, just frustration about all the
whining.

b) Great, Finland has done nothing for USA and USA has done nothing for
Finland.
Again that threat thing, you really see threats everywhere? Isn't that
somewhat paranoid?

c) I prefer when people do get along.

The US has done a great deal for Finland. If the US didn't land at
Normandy and attack Germany the Red Army would have kept going past
Berlin and gone on to the ocean. All of Europe, including Finland would
have been lost.


Well, this is just another example of thinking that US has saved every other
country's ass on this planet... which I think is a bit overreacted.

BTW, Finnish air force is flying US made hornets.
