    entitlement isn't a veteran problem (new or old), its a generational problem, and it started with the parents.(and their parents, repeat ad nauseum)

    Never thought dumbBush would get re-elected either. Donít count him out.

    If so, it's only because they do not have any data on conditions in other parts of the world. They see nothing but what's fed to them by their state-controlled media, nor are they free to travel outside their country to see for themselves how the rest of the world lives.

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    It's an intentionally hyperbolic example explaining how they don't know any better. We too in many cases here in this country think that this is the greatest country in the world, but when it comes to most aspects there are multiple other countries that have us beat. Additionally "Best" is an incredibly subjective term. What one views as good, others may disagree with.

    While the media in the US is undoubtedly a lot more free than that of North Korea, it's still going to be the main perspective on the rest of the world for the majority of Americans though, as even now less than 50% of US citizens have a passport.

    So while they have the freedom to explore, a lot don't exercise that right...
    Apparently I should put something witty or profound in here...

    fixed for you. :wink:

    also, not specific to US, but many can't afford to travel for leisure, especially out of country.

    I know there are mitigating factors and I'm playing Devil's Advocate really, but if the argument is that North Koreans think their country is the best in the world as they've not been anywhere better, the same is technically true of more than 50% of Americans (and 20+% of Brits, etc.)

    agreed.

    the grass may or may not be greener on the other side of the fence.

    but not everyone can even see over the fence to make that observation.
