In reply to post 87 i think it is, the term used is "Splendid Isolation". It's where a country removes itself entirely from world problems and just concentrates on itself. Britain did it in the 19th century, USA did it in the 20th Century. Only problem is when you're a powerful country, you cant do that. Britain was forced into WW1 due to the treaty France, Britain and Russia (i think it was) had with each other.
The US was forced into WW2 due to mounting pressure from it's population after Pearl Harbour and pressure from Allied countries in Europe. Before Pearl Harbour they were content with selling arms to european countries.
If Splending Isolationism worked, we'd all be doing it. Unfortunately theres always someone who wants to "breach the peace" as it were and fight for one reason or another. I can't remember where i read it, maybe in the book im currently reading, but theres a quote that goes something like "Fighting for freedom is a good quality to defend yourself in war, but not a good reason to start a war". I forget the complete quote, but its something like that.
Anyway, im off topic again. I love my Nokia 6630. Wonderful phone. Back to making themes for it
