I truly believe that certain sections of the American people cannot function without hate. They create their enemies as a means to unify. This is evident with sailor here among others, that they choose to believe that the international community hates the American people as a whole and the ridiculous statement that the dislike of the Bush admin is just a scape goat. It seems this is what you want to believe, that the international community hates Americans, you WANT that. Regardless of it being false, you want to be hated. It motivates you. We pity you.
If it wasnt for the fact that the rest of the Amercan people, the majority, are a truly hospitable and very agreeable bunch of people, your paranoia and bitterness might be justified. Thank god it isnt.
I'm glad you think you know me so well cargo... I didn't realise I was a paranoid bitter American.
These sweeping generalizations are what make me bitter and angry...
These aren't things I want to believe... they are what I believe... and the proof is right here on ATS in almost every single thread I read!!!
Who the wants to be hated? Thats an absurd statement.
Looks like Infinite got what he wanted, he completely turned this thread from a debate into a slander fest by twisting the topic into something completely different.
