You all are a little mistaken. If, and I mean a biiiiig ass if, Trump became president. He has no authority over declaring war that would be Congress. At most orange-man could do is send a contingent of troops overseas for 90 days max, where the troops are trained under U.N protocol do not shoot unless shot at. If anything this would not bleed out into the world, but it would ignite civil unrest within the country itself maybe and I mean maybe causing a civil war. But before that was even possible he would be impeached pretty damn quick.

AfD (Alternative for Germany) doing fine in Germany, Trump having real chances at becoming the new president of the USA... What the heck is happening? Fascists rising to power. Let's not talk about the fact that conservatives are gaining influence in a lot of European countries. Seems like a new war is going to happen anytime soon!

As there aren't going to be many people here who are familiar with the political goals of the AfD, I'm going to explain everything in one sentence: They want to shoot immigrants.


It's actually pretty simple to explain. Since decades Germany has the same problem. People are dissatisfied with the government, for what reason ever. I mean, we are Germans, we are dissatisfied. Send us to Utopia and we will still find something that is wrong. And our politicians know that and sometimes a party (usually a new one or one that wasn't very popular the last few years) takes advantage of it. People don't really care for their program or agenda as long as they just scream "We're not happy too. We want something else too" loud enough people think this party is awsome. And then they're going to vote for this party out of protest.
There was a poll right after the elections last Sunday. About 3/4 of the AfD voters are protest voters.
Until now this was never a real problem. All those protester parties are normally not that crazy, so nobody really cared for it. But now we have a crazy and a pretty successful one. And that's a real problem that could seriously damage us.
Last year we made 19,4 billion more then expected, our economy is doing great, no new debts, our economic status is pretty high, unemployment rate: 4,7%, the companies are even complaining that there are not enough people to employ. We should be happy and relaxed enough to handle problems rationally.
But no, of course everbody is angry and irrationally again.


@topic
I don't think that Trump will start WWIII . He could be a part of it (as every other president too) but nowadays it isn't that easy to start a world war. Even if Kim Jong-un would start bombing other nations there would be no WWIII because it's just North Korea. How long could it take until another nation nukes them off the map?

India and Pakistan both have nukes. They hate each other. They've been at war since the British Empire released that region and created two countries where they used to be one (that's right, India and Pakistan used to be one country, and when the British ended their colonization of that country, split it into two).

Those two countries were popping nukes at each others borders for a while. India popped five nukes in under ground tests ---- near the Pakistani border. Then Pakistan surprised the hell out of everyone, when they popped five nukes in underground tests ---- near the Indian border. For awhile there, everyone thought those two would be the ones to start WW3.

I still say, Kim Jong Un will be the likeliest to start WW3, if we let him keep his nukes.

Yeah, I've noticed that. Though it's not excusable to vote for a shitty party just because the other big parties don't offer proper solutions, but I guess you'd agree with that. Would you be able to tell me as to why this is the case? I mean, I could do some research by myself. I just wonder if you'd like to talk about this topic. I do realise that die olle Merkel can't lie her way out of this situation that easily, so it had to come to this. Let's hope you guys don't decide to make Croatia your neighbour again.

Or for that matter, listen to America again after Trump?

Dude can barely handle a GOP debate. Imagine him trying to handle Putin. -.-



^ the kitty got it



Sorry, Obama already took care of that. No one out there respects the United States. Since he's become president, none of the Countries out there take anything the U.S. says seriously anymore. Look at how weak we appear to the world, our allies in Asia are facing a ruthlessly aggressive China that is constantly pushing their borders out, and claiming territory that belongs to Indonesia, the Philippines, Vietnam, and some other countries out there. The Chinese are claiming international waters as their territory, too. International waters, vital to U.S. trade. What does Obama do? Basically nothing.

Turkey, a member of NATO, and a U.S. ally, shoots down a Russian fighter that flew into its airspace, Russia becomes belligerent and aggressive towards Turkey. What did the U.S. do? Nothing. Obama says that we're backing the people who were trying to bring down Asad, the Syrian dictator, and how are we supporting them? With words of encouragement, while Russia backs Asad with troops on the ground.

Thanks to Obama, the world is doing stuff that it never used to do when Reagan, both Bushes and Clinton was in the White House.

If anyone starts WWIII it'd be Putin. http://www.vox.com/2015/6/29/8845913/russia-war


Did you know that during the first Golf War, George Bush Sr., authorized the use of nuclear weapons if Saddam Hussein used chemical or biological weapons?


Then it's lovely that he's out of the button range isn't it.............. While Putin's still there



Did Saddam use chemical weapons against U.S. troops, even when he was getting walloped?

Of course we're scared the biggest fucking military power to exist..ever..Is our next door neighbour. Your economic and international policies have done nothing but screw Canada over. And every time you lot elect an asshole it only gets worse. So forgive us if we view this recent melting pot of idiocy that is your election with a jaundiced eye.
