Why Americans think that nobody likes them
yes, we know you're limited.
is to be expected, lol unfortunately! You disagreed with Poles, expect the worse. It will be another very intensive and short thread. They will jump on us like crazy and after a while of arguing, the admin or one of the mods will shut it down. Same procedure, same people, oh well, lol.
just plain wrong again. it's not locked, you're still here.. but still not #1.. haha.. cry me a river.
Ridiculous generalization. You're talking probably 25% of the population. Hardly a plurality. It was kind of hard to swallow after 9/11 a lot of Europeans singing "good, they deserved it"... kind of thing.
not ridiculous at all.. how many terrorist attacks in europe have gone completely unnoticed by america over the decades? now you want to fight terror? just now? world police should have been on the case long time ago.. donuts=karma.
True but that free security provided has stabilized markets over the years since the end of WWII. Euros no longers are intent on cutting their own throats as much. This banking colapse is our fault (wall street's actually) but a lot of the prosperity over the years and steady growth of the EU and Asia is in part thanks to us.
free security? hmm
sure, sure.. no1.
Exactly the opposite: right after 9/11 the USA had the sympathy of most Europeans and much of the rest of the world. The negative perception came when the Bushies started the war in Iraq.
unjustified mess based on lies, lies and more lies.. boo
Well European support sure eroded fast.. ;- ( ... I don't understand your guys love for the Muslims. The same ones who order Jihads on Danish cartoonists? You make fun of us all the time. Do we issue death contracts on your entertainers?
Think about that.
and how about just stepping out and showing your ignorance? bravo bud. all ragheads want you dead? is that right? interesting little conspiracy you got going there... boo
Sometimes it's good to remember....
yes and the europeans better not forget that usa saved their arses from the gerries. ;) :D
you'd hate it here. lol
I'm 35 you moron, and who is stupid now?:)
You scream when we act. You scream when we dont. Western Europe is a debate club. Action is not an option. (shrugs, farts.)
lol.. that's kinda true.
We do understand that different cultures, nations, etc, view what we do through different metrics. That doesn't change the necessity of our policy to us.
We realize that the leaders of other countries find it useful to demonize us. When people find displeasure with their own leaders/rulers their leaders quickly blame the U.S. and it seems to buy them time to smooth things over. (We are the monster under the worlds bed you know!) Think Iceland.
In conclusion, Americans for the most part are Individualists. It isn't that important to most if you like us or not. Hell, Its not that important to us if we like each other! America is an individual nation, same applies. We would prefer to get along with everyone, but, thats not realistic is it?
yup and me, me, me.. correct.
Americans are awesome people... nice, friendly, helpful, out-going, hard workers... but they also tend to be double-faced and can come across as arrogant, but it's just how they were brought up...
will beat your by far, lol.
bingo and here is the problem.. gotta beat somebody.. anybody.. can't really just get along..
has nothing to do with how we were brought up. It has to do with aggressive comments about us that lead us to perform that way.
not true.. came off firing from the first go.
I would think in coming decades the arrogance will wear away because it's going to be a lot harder for the US to maintain the hegemony it once had. It will still be a key player just not THE player.
let's hope so.. it's not heling anybody really.. we all can't get the 'trophy.'
it's funny because they probably do have easier lives than us
it's a trade off.. europeans have more personal time.. americans have more space, money, stuff.. it's easier living here, imho.
it's a bit silly.
who ever claimed yanks weren't silly? hehe
Which is why Nazism and communism were born there. A dangerous mentality.
and europe is over it but you US seems hell bent on trying it..
Defended yourself against Iraq and its (non-existent) WMD? Very much debatable... :)
When the US went into Afghanistan to fight the Taliban and get Bin Laden, most nations were behind you. But when Bush and Cheney decided to invade Iraq and play the "Old Europe" and "If you are not for us, you're against us" card, support withered for a reason. Not the Americans were disliked abroad, but the arrogant US government of that time.
and then unbelievably americans said, you're doing heck of a job bushy, **** all some more.
keep the world in order.
this is another problem with america.. your order isn't necessarily my order.. butt out, eh?
You carry on in your idealistic lives, thats all well and good until it affects you, then you would scream blue murder if thousands of your citizens were killed.
OMG, i can't believe you said that.. that is so freaking american that it's not really funny.. try to walk in someone else's shoes, seriously.
Whatever the US does in response to any terorist attack is fine by me, it just goes to show that that country should not have messed with a bigger, more powerful nation, everything has its place in this world, there are just those who cannot accept it.
all the 9/11 terrorist we're from afghanistan? is that so? or was it iraq? tell me..
seems america is having issues accepting the fact it's not numero uno anymore..
as for WMD, lets be honest, of course there were none. At least Saddam was removed, its not like its the Allies fault if the rest of Iraq cannot pull together, let them kill each other. Its over religion and rubbish like that, when all the stupid people have killed each other that will leave the ones who can live in peace. :) Not a bad thing if you ask me.
yes, them be ragheads.. must kill all..
alright, on that note, i gotta go but i shall be back to wipe up isle 2 later. laterz ya'll. :D :D :D
