1. That you ALL or so good at spreading the Love when you need our help.
I´d say that you will find A LOT of american soldiers stationed abroad might disagree with you on that. In fact, all those hopeless buzzcut figures I
see on the weekends in town do deserve a little bit of compassion - its not like the Military would seriously prepare them for living across the pond.
One exception to this rule however are the blacks, they have some success among those women that cherish black men.
And if you are speaking of the time following a war: Humans are opportunists, and thats why opportunistic males will try to make a living by trade,
gambling or other vices, the women will prositute themselves. Just because that half bar of chocolate is WORTH it for them. They don´t care wether
that chocolate donor is American British, French, German etc. he just needs to be an opportunity.
Your statement actually belittling the human sacrifices of civilians in wartimes.
2. That I know when you are in a tough situation you will ask us for help
Just like you´d do, and already did. The fact that America has been relatively safe EXCLUSIVELY due to its geographic position, and thus had less
dire threats to face in history, should not be misused as any sort of inherent virtue of your people.
3. That when you just had a natural disaster, you don't have to call US we always call you
Works the same way around, buddy. The difference is that YOU guys have the nerve to decline that help (again a Katrina story), and we all know how
that went. And just because that 2004 Tsunami for example happened elsewhere gives you the right to boast how good YOU (and you also have the nerve to
include your own meager personality here) are because you came to help those irrelevant, tragedy strucken "NON-US COUNTRIES"? You are disgusting!
Every catastrophe brings nations closer together. I´ll always fondly remember how some of the poorest african nations offered help and donated money
to Germany after it was struck by a huge flooding in 2001.
You see, the honest helper doesnt want something in return, even if its only "respect". Yet thats what exactly you are calling for here.
4. That when are having money problems, you know to beg us to cancel your debts to us
Please name one example of a respectable nation indebted to the US that demanded a full and immediate payment from the USA.
5. That when we have EVER needed help, you sure and nobody came
The world came to Katrina. The world came to 9/11. The "coalition of the willing" came to immediately supply the most dire assett to the US:
legitimacy. German soldiers took over guard duty at your bases when you sent your guys to Iraq. French intelligence helped the CIA with actually
correct information for a change. The world came to Afghanistan, a war that was fought because YOU were attacked
And these are only a few examples of the recent years only.
6. That you always know when we screw up, because we tell you
...which is the way domestic journalism works. To my (not universal) knowledge there has never been a big scandal anywhere (with freedom of speech)
that has not been reported and investigated by the domestic media first.
Your notion that your newspapers "were the best" is insofar unfounded as your posts here and elsewhere show that you might just not have exactly
much experience with news sources outside of your little cozy bubble.
7. That You guys have always seemed like family to us . Even if you act like the jealous brother who lacks the class to act like a
... or when you act like the offended arch-catholic priest whenever you dont understand why europeans dont need arms and condone bare breasts. You
see, its that wonderful two-way road of moral differences.
It wouldnt be a real family if everyone would get along well, such things only happen at Scientology
8. That you are so quick to judge us while you spout at the top of you lungs how great the leaders of your country are. No matter what
sesspool you call home.
And you aren´t? Your post here alone might act as a direct example to the contrary. And not that it is actually important: I have never heard ANYONE,
and I mean this literally, glorifying the present leaders of his (democratic) country like Americans do. Might be simply because most nations do not
have an elect-king like the US President, and spread the power wider.
9. That the moment our backs are turned you would put a shiv if you could ...
AAAAND do we have just a SLIGHT bit of evidence to that, darling? I´d like to quote a formidable sentence here, yet again:

The habit that SOME Americans have this irrational fear of not being loved enough doesnt make the rest of the world more dangerous, it just makes you
look like fools.
That doesnt say that the world is not a dangerous and unfair place in itself, and that there are no interest conflicts even between "friends".
Nevertheless, the USA did its fair share of backstabbing, too. So its just a BIT hypocritical to call out others for that misdeed.
10. That if the shoe was on the other foot, you would let the world burn
The only problem I have with everybody else is their military. I've never seen a finer class of people than the ones who serve our military.
Why can't you say the same.
Maybe because it is a valid opinion that a soldier itself doesnt become the pinnacle of society just by being a soldier? That a military is just
another element of a nation, not better (or worse) than any other? There are several nations that more or less disbanded their military. Do they seem
unhappy? Are they worth less (in your eyes obviously).
