59. Or he didnt expect people to interpret his words rediculously.
Edited on Tue Aug-09-05 02:17 PM by K-W
Im sure we could all have an interesting academic discussion over which was the most brutal empire in history, but that really isnt the point.

The point is that the US is a brutal empire of historical proportions and I have no doubt that under some measures of brutality or another it is number one.

Regardless you are just playing games, youve chosen one sentance out of his speech that was obviously a rhetorical flourish and you are attacking it as if he were literally trying to make a definitive statement about the history of empire.
