of course your patriotism sickens me to the core, but worse in your lack of intellect and rancid attitude.... GIVE PEACE A CHANCE

Yes, Gcat, it is a wise observation that there are many Americans who are over-patriotic about all this (I have the deattachment of knowing that it doesn't directly concern me, I am British), however, not ALL Americans are that way, in fact, MOST aren't. And even if they were all moronically patriotic, people are still forgetting the issue (inclusive those who are patriotic) at hand; it is not a question of America's patriotism, I don't think, but a question of eliminating cruelty in the overthrowing of a corrupt 'government'.

There are clearly too many issues at hand, that is not the point. The point is you have to have the courage to face upto the very core of the situation, and that is not America's patriotism. Personally, I'm the kind of person who felt like vomiting in the opening and closing sequences of 'Saving Private Ryan', when the film opened with a never-ending shot of the American flag. In fact, truth to tell I felt the film was everything that makes a good war movie a bad one; biase and patriotism. However, I digress; my point is, no matter how much American patriotism may irritate you, it should not cloud your judgement here, in the present, with the real enemies on the battlefield.

I have alot of respect for the British, and you are no exception Anthony, I loved saving private ryan, it remains one of my favorite war movies, but now that you point out the utter over-patriotism its image is slightly tainted. I belive if Americans lost the mentality that they are supperior to the rest of humankind, they would be able to get past many of their social problems. The first step in doing so would be to admit that a problem exist.

SO I challenge you Americans, admit to me, and the rest on this board that you are over patriotic and I will lose my bias, I belive that none of you will, or at least very few will

And I am not block nor am I Holy John

I thank you for your 'respect' for the British, but I do think that it is somewhat misguided. If you respect the British, you shouldn't really condemn America. After all, if what you are against is Patriotism and NAtionalism, then I must inform you that Great Britain practically invented it!

Again, I don't think Patriotism features much in this discussion, anyway. And you're right, you wont get many Americans 'confessing' to being over-patriotic, because, as I said earlier, most of them aren't. Most of them do live in the real world, Gcat, they aren't the ones I'm worried about. The ones I'm worried about are the ones spreading Anthrax everywhere. I'm sure that if Canada (which, I must add, IS part of the coalition, as you know) suffered the same attacks as the USA did, then your attitude would be somewhat altered. I know mine wouldn't be so 'objective'.

However, I am intrigued, please do tell me your views on alternative methods of peace. How is peace achieved in such a time of heated sentiments?

Your socio-economic stereotyping of Americans is abusive and insulting. Someone should seek to have you banned from www.interference.com .

hey obama bin laden
take it easy

I have nothign against Americans per se, its their morals and ideals I cannot justify

I hope you dont ban me
but if you fell it is imperative that my presence not be felt then go and do so.
It will only strengthen my belive or lack thereof in American ideals

PEACE

BACK FROM THE DEAD!

It seems everytime someone ruffles your feathers your ready to kick them off the forum! Well I have one last thing to say before my upcoming banishment. This is an INTERNET FORUM, free speach! I realize that we want to stay civil but Gcat said nothing too far out of line and I don't sincerly believe that you acually care what Gcat or myself has to say. We being Canadians livin' in those iglues. What do you think about that eh?

Why don't you hitch a ride back to your trailer park, watch for the road kill you don't want to ruin dinner! Go back to your brother 'Uncle dad', and have a thrilling game of shoot the rat. See y'all when I get there, unless you see me first. (I'm the one that's not a redneck)

Thank you and Goodnight!

PEACE

P.S. I'm not trying to tell everyone off again, I'm simply stating what I think to be an acuarte portral of the 'American Dream' since none of you could tell me what that was.

I obviously didn't understand; I'm an American, therefore I don't know how to read!

No, seriously, friends, what satisfaction do you take in making fun of people who live in trailers? Because when it comes down to it, you are making fun of a class of people because they can only afford to live in trailers, and I don't see the humor in it. I guess it's just my closed-mindedness, much the same reason I don't make fun of Afghan citizens for their living conditions.

bama,

you are right... and I dont concede the war but I do admit you have gotten us here. Our comments were out of line, for the topic.

You win this one, but the war rages on

"this thread will live in infamy"

this thread should be closed, deleted, and sent into the lowest canto of hell with judas and satan. then this thread should be forced to suckle from the 16 poisoned leathern teats of gophahmet, whore of betrayal, until it bursts from an unwholesome engorgement of curdled bile.

this thread is not funny.
