    Russia is the largest country in the world bordering more than 10 countries and has internal problems (Chechniya). No way out of it, I am afraid. Dmitri loves the draft!

    What? Sure they do. The time honored tradition of invasion and war by civilized countries towards the less civilized goes way back in history to the founding fathers of Democracy and civilization. The Greeks, who taught us how to think, were quite fond of giving a good thrashing to their neighbors and extended ther territory as far as the known world.
    Oh! What's a little hacking of limbs between friends? Hmm?
    And of course lets not forget our friends the Romans, who brought civilization to the Germanic tribes and Celts and the rest of Europe through invasion, userpery, battle and much, much more hacking of limbs and debauchery.

    So you see Basurero my boy, on the contrary, war and invasion are actually the defining characters of a civilized nation.

    Which brings us to the question Basurero ol buddy ol pal..............Who has New Zealand ever invaded? HmmmmmmMM??

    Nobody...that's who!

    So there you have it everyone! I have just proved by reason and deduction that New Zealand is an UNcivilized country!!!

    I think there is no need in army at all. The people should put their weapons on the ground and never lift it!!! If they do, there will be no wars in the world!!!. (For local conflicts there is a great need in local police - they would investigate crimes, committed by some fellons.)
    Al least, in the time of peace the army do nothing!!! the soldiers just paint grass, fences, dig poles and help generals and colonels build up their cottages!!!
    I'm a total pacifist and will never raise arm against someone!!

    I agree with Chuvak. And I guess civilised was not the right word..... Civilised in a moral sense, perhaps :P

    Military service is awful. It's pretty much a prison sentence for being born in a country, only less pleasant .

    Hey, I resent that. We're not uncivilized... just increasingly ignorant.

    Well, of course, I should have put a smiley on that. But there - ignorant means almost the same thing, doesn't it?

    For one: I don't think that bombing people into "happiness and the triumph of democratic ideals" is a wise course.

    For two: I don't think also, that american lifestyle and ideals suit me well. They're giving me creeps, to be honest.

    No offence intended though.

    You, Vesh, will definitely kill him, I suppose.
