Whose reputation are we wrecking?

And you said it yourself UKwizard... you have never heard anything positive about the war in Iraq. Do you really believe there is nothing positive going on?

No my media is'nt telling me that China is going to attack... I was using that as a "what if" example.

I've been to the UK and Europe numerous times, as a merchant mariner I see the non-tourist places too... How many times have you been to the US? I mean the real US not New York or L.A.

I really think your media is a bit more biased than here. You've just grown so used to it that you don't notice anymore.

and UKwizard I am one of those countless morons that voted for Bush.
If that's what you mean. I take that a bit personal... sorry.

Our media isn't biase, Tony Blair has been torn apart some many times in the media. The UK media shows all views of the story..ashame America dont. We do have American Fox News over here and its weird to watch cause Fox do take sides.

Your own reputation, you might not have realised but the world is becoming more and more angry at Bush and his cronies.

Just because i can't remember any doesn't mean there aren't any.
Of course there are positive things going on, but there are more bad things going on than good.

hmmmmm... but by hating Bush aren't you hating the Americans who voted for him?

Can I ask you another question? When is the last time you heard something positive about Bush or the war in Iraq on the BBC? Or have you ever?

Even the british troops in Iraq are refusing to watch the BBC because it is underminding what they're doing there.

And are you really our pet country? C'mon we've helped you through many tough times before. Now that there is no real threat to your country you can just toss us asside and forget about us?

That sounds a bit selfish.

I'm not blaming you for hating Bush, I personally believe the media is telling you to hate Bush.
Bush is just the scapegoat, it's easier to find pictures of Bush on the web then say the statue of liberty.

Umm...what's positive about Bush OR the war in Iraq?
Holy Oil-and-Scandal, Batman! Nothing!

America is the most prosperous the most exciting, the most energetic, the most technologically advanced, the most beautiful, the most safe, the most democratic, and to some degree the most spoiled.

I am a European who is an American citizen, my parents move here from Italy after the war. I have been back to Italy and am amazed at what length the left-wing propaganda machine has went to misinform the Italians about America. Most of my relatives as well as many Italians believe that Americans are selfish, hateful, scary people who live in caves. They believe that most Americans are out of work that people are starving in the streets and that only the rich have healthcare.

All of it nonsense! Finally one of my cousin came and visited America and could not believe how far advanced we are. Our cities magnificent, our technology unmatched, and he and his family felt like they had visited a futurist land.

They all wanted to move here especially his grown daughter and son.

They are not hicks, they live very well in Italy and they have traveled to other countries---but none as fantastic as America.

The Communist and Socialist spend billions of dollars every year on propaganda to make America look bad.

They are terrified that if the word got out on how well Capitalism works that their barbaric Socialistic ideas would never fly.

I don't think its the fact that other countries hate Bush, but miss the "old days"...

Days when Clinton would throw money to anyone or anything no matter what they did with it and the days when Bill Clinton flexed his muscle by warning people in a "if you do it again, then we will do something" sort of way...

Our country was attcked, viciously, and instead of warning Bin Laden, Bush did something about it. Instead of watching Hussein continually gain power instead of appeasing him, a la Hitler, Bush did something about it. Sorry, but the last time the UK was bombed...WWII, I remember the US coming to its aid. I love it how the United States should be there to support every other country when they are in trouble, but when we decide we could use some help, everyone runs for the hills and hides. While I know the UK is currently our ally, and I am thankful for it, it makes me angry that the people of the UK seem upset to be helping us.

I cant wait for the next time a country like France needs our help and we snub them, like they did to the US...the lunch line is only so long and once you step out, you shouldn't step back in.

Sorry, I got into a little bit of a vent there, not attacking anyone here, just getting some things off of my chest.

actually i dont know why?
most americans were scared into voteing him. ever heard of propaganda? i was in the US the time of the elections. the propaganda was scary!
every channel!


Can I ask you another question? When is the last time you heard something positive about Bush or the war in Iraq on the BBC? Or have you ever?

uhh probably not because there IS nothing positive about that war.


Even the british troops in Iraq are refusing to watch the BBC because it is underminding what they're doing there.

ohho really? care to provide a link? or even a soldiers name?


And are you really our pet country? C'mon we've helped you through many tough times before. Now that there is no real threat to your country you can just toss us asside and forget about us?

youv helped us once that was it.
in ww1 they could have taken france but we still would have won.
also in ww2 we could have held off but not won the war.
we have done many a thing for your country like give tech and classify damming reports about you!


That sounds a bit selfish.
.

so is asking to classify the deaths of 30 men!

Lets picture a time line where a American 9/11 never happened, or rather it happened to Britain, killing hundreds and wounding thousands.
We discover the source of the attack was Saudia Arabia,

Would American help Britain retaliate???????

I think not!

If you think Anti-US sentiment in Europe is bad (I don't) you should see what's coming out of South Korea.

www.areastudies.org...

Apparently, a song called "Fu...ing USA" is popular among the younger generation. The song is by Yoon Min-sok, a South Korean.

It was used in a video, which is said to have come from North Korea but I'm not sure if it did.
This is a quicktime version of it below. I've included multiple links in case one goes down.
acsu.buffalo.edu "Fu...ing USA.mov"
unresort.com "Fu...ing USA.mov"
shackspace.com "Fu...ing USA.mov"

It was also used in another video which combined war footage:
"Fu...ing USA" , war footage version WMV

Sorry, but Hitler stopped and went after the Soviet Union. Thats the main reason why Britain was never invaded. Yes, we all know Amercian troops went to Europe during the war, but the main American bulk was fighting Japan.

The UK went to war on the wrong reasons. WMD and the 45 minute claim was our reason to going to war, not to remove a murderous ruler.

Let me clear this up too, United states supports everyone?? more like interfering with other countries affairs. This is why the middle east hates Amercia and the majority of the world. But when it comes to non middle east countries its more dislike not hate.

Seeing as Saudi Arabia was behind the American 9/11 and Bush still refused to go after them, I doubt he would have supported a British invasion of Saudi Arabia after a British 9/11.

Lend Lease Act Total: An estimated $40 billion, maybe more. $30 billion for sure went to GB.
Marshall Plan Total: $13 billion

By today's standards that is about $400 billion, and not even one quarter of that has been paid back, and don't even get started on the WWI debts.

Let me get this straight, the middle east hates us because we gave them the technologies capable to pump oil out of their ground and make trillions in return and we defend them when a brutal dictatorship attacks another soveigrn state and then when he has killed hundreds of thousands of his own people, embezled billions of dollars ment to repair his nations infrastructure, and then is consistantly non complient with the US we come to overthrow him and replace him with a democracy and they still hate us?

*Non-American*
Im not going by my own view, but im going to look at America's trackrecord. If it would envolve benfiting America, then yes, they come to our aid. But if there was nothing they could gain out of it, then America wouldn't help.

A word that should not have real meaning. However we Americans can
be hated, but before someone delievers this message, they should take a real hard look at true American's. Ture American's give to their own and and others! American's donated over 1 million Turkey's this past Thanksgiving. Amazed contact your local food bank and find out the county's numbers, times it by number of states in this great country.
Further kindness goes out to each American no mater of their race, creed,
or nationality. Lets beat this 1 million turkey mark, the boys and girls of
our great nation need cloths, toys and other items. Christmas is on its way. Donate !!!
Hate (bah humbug)- No time for that. If another country doesn't like us oh well. Get a life!

Yes America would come to your aid...

Why? Because you are our allies. We've proved it already in the past. And yes, having you as an ally is a benefit to us.

The middle eastern media calls terrorists "freedom fighters" and condones the act of beheading. They say we are "meddling."

If meddling is giving the "majority" of Iraqis the freedom they want, and not being intimidated by the minority of muslim fundamentalists that don't want freedom... Well... what am I supposed to say.

This thread was supposed to be about how the media is controlling what you think of America. I see they are doing a good job overseas.


Sorry, but Hitler stopped and went after the Soviet Union. Thats the main reason why Britain was never invaded. Yes, we all know Amercian troops went to Europe during the war, but the main American bulk was fighting Japan.


What do you suppose was a major reason he decided to start fighting on a different front?

WW1 DEBTS?! What are you on about??? America withdrew its trade and refused to be involved after WW1!!

The reason nearly everyone hates america is quite alot to do with bush and his friends in the WH
BUT the main reason nearly everyone hates American (ESPECIALLY the Middle Easterns) is because your Americans Cocky attitude!!

"We are the best because we are america and we are all mighty and powerful so we get what we want!!"
Remarks similar to that is why alot of people hate America!!

And I hate to break it to you "only superpower in the world" you are very close to going though another depression, maybe even a worse one than last time, and OH BOY you will be in trouble then, and how everyone will laugh at you!!

Your economy is VERY weak, you just appear to be strong because of all the money that is invested in you and loaned to you from countries beliving they will get the money back... but 'America' just takes out more money and says "we'll pay it back later"

So please, cut the crap and wake up to a reality.

Thank You

Seeings Hitler didnt have to cross water to invade the Soviet Union and he did have a pact with the Soviets. Hitler betrayed Stalin and remember the Soviet is a lot biggering then the UK. If he got control of the Soviet Union, we would have been helpless.
