American Empire near collapse

    If Ahmadinejad says we are going to collapse, you can take it to the bank (no pun intended).

    I think everyone will flock to buy US dollars tommorrow since the entire world knows that this guy is never right about anything. So if he says america is going to collapse, it will do the opposite.

    Thanks Ahmadinejad
  2. peilthetraveler,

    I like your way of thinking on this - one word: gutsy!

    Balls the size of melons, brain the size of... something.
  3. That guy is one ____ _____!
  4. k that yahoo article or wherever it came from makes him sound like a dick yet during the Larry king interview he seemed like a nice guy.
  5. There was this book written in the early 30's....... "Mein Kampf" My struggle. the author, Adolf Hitler, was looked upon as a dreamer. People laughed. Not for long.

    Fifteen years later, trillions of dollars, tens of millions of dead, people wished they paid attention.

    If the guy has nuclear weapons, runs a country, tells you he's going to wipe out Israel, vaporize his Arab ass. I believe guys like him. The Jewish people have had enough grief for 10,000 years. They deserve better.
  6. Ahmadinejad is just another "Fabled Enemy"........

    Ahmadinejad is nothing more than another pathetic pawn running a country which is as harmless as they come....the U.S. could obliterate Iran in a very short time and ALL in the world know this.

    Pumping up Iran as some great enemy is intellectually vacant!

    Ugh.. here we go with Hitler comparisons again. Goodwins Law: "As an internet discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches one."

    The truth is.. Ahmadinejad is the Bush of Iran. Cheney and gang ran things here in the US. Iran has religious leaders run every aspect of that country. Ahmadinejad is just a public face with no power. If you didn't know, we threw out the democratically elected shah in 1979, and supported the policies that eventually gave us Ahmadinejad. Once again we created our enemy (see: Saddam, Bin Laden, etc)

    Ahmadinejad will leave office soon, just like GWB, and they both will fade from the international spotlight.

    Let's stop over inflating the severity of things. Both in economics and in politics.
  8. If I-Am-a-nut-job really thinks that the mighty US is really going to fall, why doesn't he short the piss out of the dollar, and our market, and make his country the next great empire.

    Fact is, without oil demand from the us, his country will have nothing of value to offer the world. And, that event would be the catalyst that forces another revolution in Iran.
  9. mschey,
    actually - Asia and emerging markets are offsetting drop in US demand and consumption.

    Must be some kind of magic...
  10. Your analysis is wrong, The COLLAPSE of the US will have implications worldwide.

    Imagine a total collapse of the US and oil demand droping 80%! Then, Imagine a drop in demand for ANY goods from China, or any of those other countries, and by now, you should be able to envision the inevitable outcome. It's a nasty spiral.

    Iran left with only one resource OIL, a significant reduction in worldwide oil demand, and plenty of countries looking to provide it will end up worse off then before.
