Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

These particular people don't technically own pacific island nations, but can nuke pacific ocean atols as if they owned them.

The Bush family couldn't own an island nation even if it wanted to.  Neil Bush keeps blowing the family wealth on Asian hookers, and Dubya's entire fortune comes from insider trading, and from convincing the people of Texas to build, and then give to he and his colleagues, a stadium.  (The baseball team wasn't worth anything, due to the fact that the Rangers have always been, and will always be, a terrible team.  The stadium, however, was worth millions.)

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.

Er... I was thinking about the French head honcho and Mururoa.

Bush doesn't own Middle Eastern countries either, but he are going to nuke one as if he owned it.
