    "A country that starts a war every 2 years" lmao, gimme a break.
    While I do not agree with the general America hate, you do start a lot of wars. Most recently: Afghanistan and Iraq. They were just ... unnecessary. This whole "war on terror" is just political BS to be able to go to war, for whatever reasons.

    Every logical thinking human being knows that you cannot defeat a loosely structured organization with independently operating cells through conventional warfare. It's just not possible.

    I hope the "fiscal cliff" comes into effect, bam 500 billion to spend on that "worthy" cause.

    I'll just send my money where they need it.
    Way to turn death and destruction from a national disaster into a political conversation. Pathetic.

    Have someone in your guild or a close friend buy it for you and gift it too you....then you just pay back your friend with real money.

    Wish there was a mount to match the Kitty....that would be even more awesome.....

    They could have donated nothing at all, would that have made you happy? I mean, clearly 0% is much better than 50%.

    People are so jaded these days. Why is it a bad thing for a corporation to make money? Blizzard/Activision isn't running a charity, they are running a business. Stop being mad for them wanting to make a buck. Hell you pay them a monthly fee to play WoW, you paid them to buy WoW and every expansion. Don't be mad at them on one hand for wanting to make a buck and love them on the other hand enough to continually pay them each month to play their game.

    I will be getting one of these fine firey felines. I'm a ginger, so it has a special place in my heart. Oh, and i love cats. I don't own any cause i'm a little on the allergic side and live in an apartment where it would cost too much for me to own one, but i love the little guys!

    Umm...other than the war in Iraq and Afghanistan, I challenge you to name a war STARTED by the United States.

    Face it, your country is broke. Also the spread of wealth in the US slowly starts to slide down to 3th world proportions. So expect living conditions to drop and crime flourish even more than it is doing now.
    Also the reason the US goes to war a lot also has it's ties with the arms industry being the biggest industry in the US. Also the second biggest industry is very illustrative: the trash industry. Considering everything has to be big in the US that doesn't surprise me though. The US is adapting very poorly to the future TBH and it will hit the hardest when resources run out as you are running a 'waste' economy.

    Wrong. They have the ultimate tool : the USD printing press. As long as they have the dollars making machine , and the other people on the planet still use and accept dollars, they are not broke and won't ever be .

    The donations for Japan with the Cenarion Hatchling was 100%. Can't remember if they have done any charity donations since that one.

    As a Serb, I wouldn't dare call a NATO bombing of Belgrade a "war", neither would I call a singular invasion a "war". War is a state of usually open and declared armed hostile conflict between states or nations. NATO is not a state, and Panama never fought back, ergo neither instance you linked are wars. Seriously, it looks like people just want to shit on the US for whatever. Let's not forget that the British have invaded 90% of the world, with only 22 countries through history escaping their wrath. Why not call the British out on their aggression?

    I find it funny that your own link counters your awful point. Compare the debt levels of the US and Greece, then try your argument again. Or is 73% somehow equal to 189% and 100% is equal to 234%.

    Why on earth are you asking us to to only help that country who that has the biggest potential to recover fastest and that was mild damages?

    Pathetic Blizzard, a slap in the face on those poor people who already had it rough to start with before hurricane Sandy, like on Haiti
    You do realize that the US as a whole donated something like 800million dollars to the relief efforts in Haiti right? Your belief that everyone in the US is rich and well taken care of is a joke and the belief of either a) a child or b) an ignorant adult.

    Printing more money just lowers the value of said money and if you keep doing that dollars won't be accepted anymore. Money needs to be backed up by something of value, otherwise the paper it's printed on is worth more than the money itself. Just printing more is a downward spiral if you don't have economic growth to back it up.

    Let's say you got your wish. Defense is slashed in half, US bases cannot be supported and are withdrawn. What now? Who steps up to the plate? The UN? Fat chance, a coalition of countries with no militaries more interested in themselves than the good of the whole. The only other country to match the US in army is Russia, so that's out. Not to mention what happens to places like S. Korea, Afghanistan, etc. when peacekeeping forces leave in the interim before another superpower steps up. What if we never intervened against Saddam? What would happen had his intended capture of Kuwait's oil reserves happened? What happens to all those smaller countries all over the world with inadequate police forces that welcome the protection offered? It's not as simple as picking and choosing who to help, and letting those countries burn is not an option, we're far more civilized than that.

    They are backed by the strongest army on the planet . And by this simple mechanic: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Petrodollar_warfare

    The speed increase provided by the Druid ability Stampeding Roar no longer stacks with the speed increases provided by Cat Form or Travel Form.
    But 296% travel form speed is fun!
