What facts? You see Seryyah, why don't you just answer it this way that way I can fully understand:
"You see Mr. Joshua, even if the United States of America was as evil as the Germans and the Japanese, even if they were despised by the entire world, even if the world really wanted to stop them - it is an extremely powerful nation. Let's not act like their retaliation would be puny compared to what the rest of the world can do. Even what you would consider punishment, would be provocation to them and would be met with swift retaliation.
They have a formidable army equipped with the latest of weapons who are toughened through years of experience in warfare. They have the most advanced vehicles, navy and aircraft the world has ever seen. Top that off with an economy that could outlast many of the of the world's nations even if they were isolated. They have nukes, that could wipe the world a hundred times over. Even if the world were to disable many of these advantages, we would have to destroy every single tree, grass, house, building, fence, rock, dumpster, car, truck and anything the American population could use to set up their guerrilla warfare. We would experience what the Americans experienced in Vietnam. And if they go, they are taking the world with them, guaranteed.
And even if the 194 nations won, they would look at a world where hundreds of millions or possibly billions are now dead due to warfare alone. They would look at a world where massive portions of the Earth are scorched, irradiated, uninhabitable for thousands of years. Huge portions of farmland destroyed and unable to regrow thus leading to millions dying due to starvation. The lack of fresh water would kill millions more. Diseases would run rampant, unchecked, incurable thus killing even millions more. They would look at a world where very few of the 194 nations exist. They would have to start from scratch in a much smaller world than before. Those who would remain would question themselves on whether they did the right thing or not. That is the result if we attempted to resist their evils.
No, Mr. Joshua! That is too high a price to pay. That is why all the world can do is condemn them, insult them, laugh at them or threaten them for they at least would tolerate that. Even these arrogant people who claim that taking out the US would be easy would think twice before doing so, unless they are suicidal.
Yes, Mr. Joshua, they are an evil nation with a population that is vile and vain. Their ideals and principles have been corrupted and it seems that it is irreversible. But unless you want to destroy the world, there is nothing we can do to them that would change them. The more you hurt them, the more stubborn they become and the higher the price you would have to pay.
Our only hope to end their evils, is to let the American people destroy themselves. It has been proven that all empires, even the most powerful ones, inevitably fall, and they hasten their fall when they use ruthlessness to achieve their goals. The more ruthless they become, the weaker they get, despite their facade of immense power. It may not look like that now, nor tomorrow, nor ten years from now but eventually, corrupted nations do fall.
Hopefully, after a peaceful transition, another nation that will genuinely uphold the ideas of freedom, justice and equality will lead the world for a truly better tomorrow for everyone."
That Seryyah! I would understand something like that!
When people say "nah it's too powerful" or "no need, they are already destroying themselves" or "nah, they are not evil"... I don't understand any of that! To me that reeks of arrogance! And arrogance is a language I cannot understand!
So next time, please answer it like that!
