Please read the para I wrote after that. And if you've read my whole post you'll realize I'm not the one who's racist or something.

As for your question, well, as for the places I mentioned, according to recorded history (visit a library or something) yeah, they were not in ruins. Up to you to find out.

No, Canada, the USA, Australia, New Zealand and Japan are not in ruins. But of the places I mentioned and the fates they have faced, once again, please consult a decent library. Received on Mon Jul 02 2007 - 18:29:10 CDT
