This is a really depressing story about Americans in the UK

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/magazine/3276911.stm

Sad to hear there are so many intolerant arseholes here. I feel like I should apologise for them.

People just don't agree, it's the way it is.

I also think that if Big Ben or some other UK land mark was destroyed and thousands killed in Britain, the reaction to taking on certain states would not be so far in the opposition, but that is neither here nor there.

I don't know about that. It's not how we've historically dealt with terrorism over the last 30 years or so, I don't think it'd change if it was one massive attack rather than many smaller ones.

Quoted from the article

"Demonstrators in their tens of thousands are expected to turn out to rail against his administration's foreign policy, its environmental record, and his presidency - numbers set to dwarf the dissent which greeted China's Jiang Zemin or the 1978 state visit by Romania's Nicolae Ceausescu."

That was a x-post, edited to avoid confusion.

Anyway, I hope that arseholes like these who judge people by their nationality rather than themselves as people are in the minority 'cause it's out of order.

Of course, if someone calls Venom a fat stupid American that's perfectally justifie.d

Mike, I don't want to get into a big political thing, but it would.

The US also had plenty of terror attacks the last 30 years and did little about it.

Take my word for this, you wouldn't view it the same, this wasn't the IRA with a few scattered bombings and warnings, that attack killed thousands and destoyed billions of dollars in property.

It's getting a bit out of hand, what was usually reserved for the American government is more and more turning against Americans. You can read and hear comments like many people gloating over US losses in Iraq. I don't think individual americans are at any risk, but the mood is very ugly here.

There is nowhere in Europe more antiamericanism than in Greece but all Americans are quite safe here. It helps that they are very polite people in general, very well behaved. Well raised!

Coming back to the point, it's the traditional welcoming procedure for any american president to burn an american flag upon arrival. Don't mess up the protocol.

Burning a flag is actually the proper and respectful way to dispose of one that has been tainted.

I don't see what the big deal is. If Funko came to this country, I'd want to beat him up. Plus I'd want to kill KingShithead (as well as KingShithead@home). Turnabout's fair play, as I see it.

That's why my idealogy is the best. I hate everyone because they're them. Not because of anything else. Though everything else does give me ammo for insulting them.

That is exactly why I hate the stereotypical American. Brainwashed into thinking that anything left of centre or even just centre in the political spectrum is seen as "commie".

I was / am against the war / occupation of Iraq. I worry that Bush has his own agenda and does not give a toss who gets hurt in the way.

I will hopefully be in London on Thursday PEACEFULLY demonstrating against Bush.

I am totally honest in saying that if I was in a position to choose wether to kill either Bush or Saddam Hussain, then Bush would get the bullet.

I also hate Tories, but I do not go around attacking them in the street. All people in this country are entitled to free speech.

It was up to the people of Iraq to get rid of Saddam, not Big Brother USA, same as if a British leader stopped free speech here, there would soon be a major uprising in this country. Historically look at Poland as an example of people power.

But not the point. The point is that normal Americans are being treated badly in Britain because of their country's foreign policy.

It's a bit like the stupid Brits still hating Germans because of Hitler.

Hey fuckhead. Try getting the correct context out of the post. I'm talking about a direct quote from the article that said the Chinese Communits and Ceausescu.

I said nothing about dickless assmunches like you being communist. Learn to read context you fucking cum sucking assfister.

If you can't see the complete idicoy behind that statement then you need to flat out die. Or get in a time machine and head back to Iraq circa 1988.
