That makes “advertising budget” 1200% of sales.
Defence industry does not pay for itself even in Russia ($13-15B exports, $90.7B spendings – probably the best ratio among major arms manufacturers).

That does not imply that military spendings are redundant.

They are masters at robbing us blind and getting away with it. Their manipulation of aluminum supplies is a great example of the crooked practices they have engaged in.

The U.s doesn’t volunteer to be the worlds police, the deals struck with Europe post WWII, saw the prime military, with the largest fleet and better trained soldiers, having to down scale and sell of their colonies.
additionally if it is not in the interest of halliburton, sorry the U.S, then America does not get involved. take a look at Africa and Syria. It also took a very brave woman prime minister to stop the US from profiteering during the South atlantic conflict in the 80′s by threatening to charge the US $100ml per day storage for the nukes on foreign soil.
History is a wonderful thing when the text books in high schools are edited to reflect nationalistic rhetoric, rather than fact.

You could have made your point without slamming another’s “command of the English language”. Basically, that was a waste of my time and yours since it made YOU look like a dope.

Go back to school and learn to play nice with other kids…

Your credibility = 0

I’d say the Nordic nations of Europe. Lower unemployment rates…equal healthcare at lower cost…stout management of personal and government budgets…seems manufacturing jobs there have withstood the flood of Asian semi-slave labor…many nations report higher “happiness” than the US (tough to argue with that one). They have some resources too: Norwegian oil, Swedish iron, Dutch natural gas, Finnish forestry, plenty of clean, cheap hydroelectricity. Dutch and Danish farms are small but mightily productive…as of a few years back, the Netherlands had the third highest value of agricultural exports in the world.

A huge risk is the Euro currency, however. Not their fault though.
