Why some countries are "s********"

Postby Thinktank » Feb 12th, 2018, 12:36 pm

Did you ever wonder why some countries like Canada are so great and other countries
are s******** countries?

One reason is USA government, which is the expert at turning good countries into s******** countries.

See what the little Stephen Harper did? He made a s******* country out of a good country.



India is becoming a good country - like us.
Ukraine is broke, and undertook a war on that portion of the country that provided 30% of GDP. Now a draft, for an army, for a war, for a government that will - get this - implement IMF/EU *austerity*.

India has a very very long way to go.

edit: chart is from wiki and is "Map of world poverty by country, showing percentage of population living on less than $2 per day in 2008, according to the World Bank."

Why use a big word when a diminutive one will suffice.

Why some countries are "s********"?

Mostly because of the people living there.

Some of the richest Arab nations have the poorest people. There is immense greed, corruption, and lack of care and revenue spent on those who are poor. Sure, the capitol cities may be nice (and mostly built by foreigners), but stray outside the cities and the majority of the population live in slums. This covers most Islamic nations.

I can't believe I am even responding to this it's such a loaded question because it depends if by S***H*** you are talking politically, or just "poor"?

Most counties that (some people like Trump) think are considered S***H*** are merely suffering from drought, disease, poverty and war. Some may be a result of corrupt government, but many/most have an inhospitable environment.

Therefore, if you are lucky enough to be born to a country with a viable environment, congratulations, you have just won a genetic lottery, and it has nothing to do with your moral superiority!

I was lucky enough to be born in Canada - a country with loads of resources and a democracy.
That means I have a right to know who stole 130 tons of Libya's gold when we helped USA bomb them.
Also, I want to know if Stephen Harper got one gold brick for agreeing to the bombings.

I won the lottery by being in Canada. Now I want one of those ^ for myself.

We are also doing stuff in Afghanistan.
