I find it funny that Angelhorns get pissed at people making sarcastic comments when she does it all the damn time.

I only got pissed off at him because I felt he went beyond sarcasm and started making personal insults.

Anyway, get over it. I have.

I think some of the Yanks start to take it personally when their country is snipped at so much. With all the crap that gets posted about where they are from, it would be hard for it not to hit a nerve from time to time.

Well, frankly, welcome to the reaction to those who are offended by yours and others' constant snipping (not saying you constantly snipe, but when you snipe you might be mistaken for something you are not).

If we want to have a happy forum, we have to learn where each others toes are, and maybe try to see other peoples' PsOV.

In my general experience with Americans, their political style is politer and less sarcastic- slagging off politicians and politics is virtually a national sport here, perhaps because we have to rub shoulders with more nations geographically and we have all had to learn to live together via war and arguments.
I believe there is some truth here. At least in my case. I watched the Rugby World Cup with some Australians and British people and witnessed the repartee between them. It was funny and entertaining and we all had fun, but I just couldn't join in. I just didn't feel like it was proper. However, I do have some fun at China's expense, but I live here now so it's expected.

Really? Americans seem to be very brutal to each other when it comes to politics. Canadians play politics similarly, with elbows up, but even then it doesn't seem to get as vicious.

In the US the Willie Horton ads contributed to winning an election. In Canada, and ad that pictured a person with a slight disability contributed to the devestation of the party that simply used a photograph of the opponent.

What I see as the difference between Yanks and others is the constant plinging by outsiders. As an Albertan, I know how that feels. I know all about bigotry and unfounded opinions about me and where I am from grabbed simply from headlines.

Oh the poor Yanks. I'm so glad they never tell us who we should not have as president, who should not be in government, or the nice pics of Austria with a swastika over it on the news.

No. No, you don't.

Part of it might be that they really do think that you too will fall after having been where they think they were. But I don't really think that explains it all.

I think that people really don't know wtf to think about the people who could destroy the world 12 thousand times over, but who profess to hold to higher ideals, but who all too often prove themselves to have all too human leaders.

I think it scares the hell out of a lot of people. And I think that some others have some sort of penis envy.

And then there are the peculiar ways that America embraces its place in tthe world. Sometimes by slapping others around in ways that make no sense whatsoever outside of the special interest groups in Washington that push policies that hurt most Americans for their own benefit.

I will tell you one thing though. There has been peace on our border for close to 200 years. There are not many places in the world that count that can say that. I wouldn't trade the Yanks as neighbours for anyone, even though I do like to gloat about why it is a 'White' House.

You know where you can shove that swastika.

Would it be ok to write "genocide" and " stolen land" over 99 % of the US map? Well it would, they haven't even come to terms with their history.

No, I'm too used to encountering things like that, from stereotype to outright lies. I just find it ludicrous for Americans to complain about Antiamericanism, given how the rest of the world is portrayed in America.

Bullshit. The ROTW has nothing on how the Yanks are treated on these forums. You know that, and I know that, at least if you are being even the slightest bit honest with yourself.

No. No, I do not think so. Maybe talk to Qweeg or Protein about it, or perhaps review your own comments about the US for a refresher course.

The fact is nobody ever notices Austria, so you have no freakin' clue what I am talking about. You are not subjected to daily abuse of who you are and where you come from, so how the hell could you have the faintest clue?

Ooooooh, daily abuse. Poor fellas.

qweeg is creating some nutty leftwing theories. As for protein and me, we have been opposed to a criminal and stupid war. My, are we meanies.

"so how the hell could you have the faintest clue"

I just had to watch and read the reporting related to Haider. It was funny at times, annoying at others.

You still have no clue, Roland. You have not been there. You can be no judge of where walrus or Chris are coming from.

Pretend all you want, but you are one of the ones with the sharp sticks, and you cry in disbelief when people react against it. Sounds kind of... strange to me.

And, no. No you have not heard any amount of Austrian posts compared to what the Americans have had to wade through about the US. Don't be pathertic in your wimpering.

thanks, you've just given me a licence to complain about daily abuses...

I won't take it though, it seems the level of racist FFZ-type french mokeyring has diminished of late, so I'll pass.

Venom, no I'm not certain of being right, but I have an opinion, and I don't see why I shouldn't express it.

My POV is that, irrespective of the legality/moral rightness of this war, it will further boost the terrorist cause by offering them a new political agenda, more recruits, an easy theater for an 'easy' war to hurt our common interests, etc. In other words it makes the war against islamists a lot harder, while other actions, less costly, would have been much more impactful.

History will tell; If we get quickly a stable and democratic Iraq, hurrah, I'll gladly eat my words with mint sauce.

Nowhere close, maroule. You don't get it. The French have been subjected to nothing like what the Yanks have been, consistently for a very long time. FFZ was a reaction, one in very poor taste I grant, but a reaction none the less. The people who went off to form FFZ snapped, it's that simple.

Their poor taste gives you no license, so feel free not to use something that does not exist.

I don't think you can take what you think you are dishing out, Roland. You remember early 2000. What if it were constant and non stop?

I only have to read or watch the US media to get constant abuse of Europe. So what? It's essential to them. Why bother about a hopeless case?

As for the forum, we had a harsh debate. And you can't insult me via the internet, no matter how hard you try. If my own sensitivity were the limit, I would not be so restrained in my comments.

You are full of shit, Roland, because you have not the slightest clue of what we are speaking yet you keep on like the dogged little debater that you are. Good on you, but you are still full of something not entirely savoury.

Constant abuse of Europe in US media? I guess that might explain your case. You know, I live 200 miles from that border, I don't see it and I'm rather attached to Europe myself. However, I guess you need some crutch or other to stand up when you need an excuse for the bile that you spew out on the topic of the Yanks.

Your trolling could need some new tricks. The "oh the poor yanks" line is getting tiresome. Have you been to some victimization seminar?

I have no crutch, I just have a very negative opinion of America's political system and its shall we say subsystems. Maybe it's unusual for you not to admire them. You would have to pass some time here and listen to the common opinion about America, I'm usually the moderate to pro-american voice.
