Well, start with a nuclear weapon, or large amounts of chemical and biological agents, 4 hijacked airliners, or a Hitler, and you get the idea. Of course, it could just amount to one lone idiot with a gun who goes hunting in Sveden, Norway, or Denmark.

And then again Hitler was a military genious no matter what the world says
This is most decidedly NOT TRUE. Hitler knew almost nothing about military tactics and uses of weapons and there are tons of documented proof of it, noted by any German officer of the time. Germany was (and probably still is) an industrial wizard but Hitler himself (an Austrian, not German, by the way) was not knowledgeable on the subject of industry or military tactics.

Watch almost any documentary film about Hitler during his time as Führer and you will see that German military officers despised Hitler's lack of military knowledge. The fact that Germany lost WW II is due (by almost every account) to Hitler's meddling in military affairs. If not for that, Germany would probably have won the war.

Hitler did not know how to issue orders or how to relate to his generals, thus causing chaos in the ranks and eventually destroying any initiatives the higher ranking officers could have contributed.

Remember too that the assasination plans against Hitler by the military (such as General Stauffenberg) were made not because they thought that Germany was wrong but because they felt that they could win the war without Hitler's incompetence, thwarting their professional wisdom and endeavours.

You've got lots of those in the United Snakes.

Al Qaida wasted their time on 7/11. Colorado Charly, Shopping Mall Mike, Post Office Pete, Road Rage Ronnie and hundreds more manage to shoot up their own country and countrymen at home like it's open season on Americans. Al Qaida should stick to targeting Americans abroad. It's much more cost-efficent and more better appreciated by the local population.

You forgot to mention that Saddam might have cheated on his taxes, BUT ........ there were no WMD's in Irak so you started an illegal war, invaded another country on a lie of WMD's, murdered a million innocent men, women and children, tortured in Abu Graib & Guantanamo, raped the population, and commandered the oil fields.

You forgot the nutball in Norway the killed 69, mostly children.

In a statistical revelation the investigative news programme Kalla Fakta brands as shocking, journalists have determined that around 95 percent of robberies and violent crimes in Sweden are never solved. It also reported that the average police officer solves three crimes per year.

The Local newspaper reports that one in seven Swedes was a victim of crime in 2007. Robberies and violent crimes made up 75 percent of all reported crimes in Sweden last year, which added up to around 900,000. Police managed to solve 5.8 percent

Hypocritical idiot!

We SAVED more European and Allied lives than Americans TOOK during WWII. Both jobs had to be done so stop crying, you silly twit.

So do we:
* America’s CONVICTION was that Irak had thousands upon thousands of WMD’s.
Sweden’s CONVICTION was that there were no WMD’s.

WE WERE RIGHT YOU WERE WRONG.

* America’s CONVICTION was to illegally invaded and occupy Irak, to kill a million innocent men, women, and children, and to torture innocent people in Abu Graib and Guantanamo.
Sweden’s CONVICTION was to follow the UN recomendation to seek diplomatic solutions to the problem with Irak.

WE WERE RIGHT YOU WERE WRONG

Our Viking ancestors are part of our HISTORY. We are civilized today. We haven’t been to war (as a nation) since we fought against Napolean. We are proud of that. However, Swedes, as individuals, have fought in every war that has come down the pike. I myself, was a volunteer for the American Army and I served in the Vietnam war during the mid-60's. Every one of my countrymen who fights in foreign wars are VOLUNTEERS. That is not even in YOUR definition of “cowardess”, you stupid cow.

Don't worry. Once the penny drops masses of Americans will get off of their azzes and make a conserted "stink & holler" to bring down the idiocy of your government, in the same way you did to stop the Vietnam war. Patience.

It's our fault, really. It was enourmous European protest against the Vietnam war that brought Americans on board "with us" - and the rest is history. So far, we haven't made enough protest against the American madness of today. Why not? Hell if I know!

That "nutball" is Norwegian, not Swedish. Shall I quote the murder-mayhem crime rate in Mexico and attribute it to the U.S.? Plus, as far as I know, it is the only such crime in Norway's history.

Yes, I know a guy whose wallet was stolen and a woman who claims that someone "copped a feel" during the city festival that year.

If we start shooting up our schools, post offices, shopping malls, cinemas, trafic jams, etc.(as you do in the States) then you won't need to call me a "hypocritical idiot!" - I'll be sending that message myself to my government before you can pick up the phone to dial my number.
