Good countries never have to ask their subjects or citizens to LOVE them - love would be mutual!

this time again i have to disagree with you...a country doesnt have to be good in order for someone to be loved by...and china & viet nam are not the ideal (my personal choice prefernece) nations but i love em just like you love a girl and she doesnt return her love for you (if that any better explanation at all)
