I don't think the problem is lack of balls, but lack of brains.

We seem to have more than enough balls, dicks and A-holes in America. It's brains and heart that we're missing.


OK..I do concede that point....you got me there..buff said.

Are you an Aussie? If so we can call it even.

Are you British? If so we can call it even.

Anyone else though...sorry guys but us and our cousins(English speaking that is) are better. We love beer cook outs boobies.... I mean none of you can beat that stuff with anything.

Sorry just keeping it real in the great state of Texas.


Ummm, not even close mate. While every country has a few dickheads who will get drunk and shout about how good their country is, nowhere is it louder, or more all pervasive, than when it comes from Americans.


We are proud...what do you want?

America only dawned that cloak after the rest of you guys literally forced us into loosing hundreds of thousands into your wars you forced on us.

After the last one we claimed the mantle of resposibilty, and stopped your further machinations up to this point.

Name once america started a world war that killed hundreds of millions...
I can name 2 tines the rest if you guts did.


America didn't join the second world war until they were forced to, after repeated pleading from the allies for years - and up until then America's bankers were financing both sides of the war. Apart from that America has started just about every war since.


The test of you guys play your games that escalate out of control and end countries and hundreds of millions.

We get involved early to make sure it is only tens or hundreds of thousands.

Big difference.

The peace has only lasted this long because of american intervention.


What a load of bollocks. America only entered WW2 when it was financially viable for them and only after Japan kicked it's ass at Pearl Harbour. Before that you lot didn't care what happened to the world as long as you could make a lot of money financing both sides of the war.

Just about every war after that was started by America.


Otherwise we would be into WW6 by now.

You guys in the EU keep starting the wars that end millions and attempt to genocide entire races.

Not once has any of that come from this side of the pond...not once.


LOL, more complete nonsense. One word - IRAQ.

Keep proving the OP's point though, its fun watching you dig your own hole.

Through the 80's and 90's I lived American Exceptionalism. Land of the free, home of the brave I was taught. We were "free" citizens surrounded by would-be villains waiting to snatch those freedoms away. Eventually, I discovered just what those freedoms cost others around the world and finally the realization that those "freedoms" are very much an illusion.



Finally!!!

Elaborate please.

I sm an american, if say what you referenced nobody will listen... But someone from another country... Talk about iphobes being made by forced slaves...or sweatshop kids making Nike's......please, these things are sickening.... Please elaborate!!!

Name one nonamerican lifeforms to step foot on the moon... Ya we weren't first into space...just first and only on the moon a dozen times mind you.

But your right, america accomplished nothing in space because Russia killed a dog slowly to beat us there....really?

America is still the most amazing country on this planet. The diversity and multiculturalism is what makes this country the best country on the planet. You can bash me all you want, go ahead. However I consider myself extremely fortunate to live in such an amazing place.

The world is an amazing place, full of diversity and multiculturalism. Moreso than America.

You are right..Iraq was a world war that caused genocide and ended hundreds of mlions of lives...oh wait what were yiy lying?

We financed the first 2 world wars at the behest of our allies.

We tried to stay out of both, up to and including alienating allies.

The Japanese kicked our asses at pearl harbor because they were on a war footing and we were trying to maintain a peacetime footing.

Once again in another world war america did not start.

We got attacked by Japan because if sanctions we imposed to help try and stop the war.

We just figured out the formula after ww2.

Small wars here and there, or large wars everywhere.

Which helps the world more?( and yes us, I won't deny that obvious part...it is actually quite obvious)

Well, how would Africa look now if they never had rare earth materials?

What would the Middle East look like today if oil wasn't combustable?

sorry English is my fourth spoken language sorry I don't see the difference btw stores and shops I hope it was a joke


In England it is a booth, in america it is a trunk( in england a trunk is a box you store stuff in, in america it us the hatch on a car you store stuff in).

In england it is a bonnet, in america it is a hood ( the lid on a car that houses the engine).

In england it is a shop, in America it is a store.

Many linguistic differences. That is how it is easy to tell the difference.

In America we calm it a bathroom restroom or john(or say I have to go talk to a man about a horse, or so and do went to crap and the hogs ate them, or females go powder their nose...etc), in England it is a Lou(did I spell that right?).

Many differences even though it is all English. Just in America we speak american English. In england it is "the queens" English, and in Aussie land....they just do what they want.( though to be honest Australian English is about 5 times closer to English English than American English)

Agreed!!!

We aren't perfect...but I will be dambed if we aren't proud... Right or wrong.

Iove this country, even served 6 years so the blowhards can talk smack to me about serving.

This is the worst country on earth....besides all the others!!!!

We bitch moan and complain... But honestly I wouldn't want to live any other place.

Besides just move states, they are the size of European countries after all, don't like the culture where are, move....it will be different.
