As of this morning, the US gave Pakistan $50 million, plus they lent 8 helicopters. I wonder what the discrepancy is when adjusted for population and GDP. 7.

People throughout the world would like to see the bad points diminish and the good points blossom. 9. Oct 11, 2005 ### Townsend I don't believe that is true at all. Show me the proof that everyone in the world wants to see the good points blossom and the bad points diminished. 10. Oct 11, 2005 ### deckart He's got a point. I see in these forums that people want to see the bad points exploited more than anything else. 11.

Oct 11, 2005 ### pattylou I didn't mean everybody. I meant you can find people everywhere ("throughout the world") that recognize the good and the bad in America; the point was that there was nothing inconsistent in Anttech's comment, at all. 14.

And I don't believe that is true. I think it is just an appeal to emotion so please show me some proof.
