I think the problem people have with america is purely down to Bush and the war on terror.


Earth to noangels (and the other people who think the same):

1 - Bush is gone. Like us telling europe that the problem we have with you is DeGaulle or Hitler.

2 - Obama had Congress renew the war on terror legislation, so it is now obama's war on terror. If you want to keep complaining, complain to the new guy.

3 - Most of us understand that historically appeasement never has worked, thus the war on terror and find it incomprehensible that europeans (who with Hitler taught the world that appeasement doesn't work) are still trying it again.

The post made sense

But you forgot to mention you neighbor to the north. We have never faltered in our stance. Weather or not we get along we are ALWAYS there for you. Americans may not be but that is to be expected.

Remember "the red eye" program on fox.

Hardly saying fox reflects Americas views but it sure leaves our friendship in troubled waters.

Wow! Lots of resentement in the OP. Kind of doubt that you are a genuine Native American, which we Portuguese call Indians because of the "mistake" of Colon or Columbus or wathever you want to name him.

Guess that your resentement against europeans is the the same that (some) Africans have against us, historicaly true, but:

-Do you try to compare the world as it was in the 1400's with the 21st century? Because if you do, i don't really know how to classify the American attitude towards the rest of the WORLD in the 21st century.

-As wrong as slavery was (and believe me that i am totally against) it was very common in those times, even you state in your OP that the African Leaders were involved, of course, the Portuguese didn't need to go inland to get slaves (that's Holywood) at the harbours the Blacks sold Blacks!! Indians sold Indians, that's the way the world worked those days!

-I could go on and on, but do you know why You Native Americans and Africans
know how to write or to manufacture something more evolved than pick up bananas or put feathers in the head from inocent killed birds?

-Do you know why you are using a computer? It was not the ancient kings of africa or your bird gods that give you that, it was a CIVILISATION born in the Mediterrean, with all the errors and mistakes and cruelties ...

Man, like all Americans you really, badly need somme lessons in history, i mean if you really where interested, wich you are not

Gordi while I agree with about 90% of your post, My thread was not started as an intent to bash the EU, or European nations, It was to point out the fact that we are both just as bad, but have been a beacon for liberty (sometimes it looks like the exact opposite.) America since WWII (along with G.B. Love ya) have been at the front of the fight for Liberty for 60 Years now, And while some see it (Iraq) as a war of money we (America) have spent way too much money there and haven’t received any money in return. France and a few other nations in the lead up to the war had very lucrative deals with Saddam, they knew that when we attacked they would lose said deals. Also France since they got a major arse kicking by the Germans in both world wars have been looking for a way counter Americas Power... They found it in the EU, don’t look at America when it’s the French who are Notorious for back stabbing. (See when they left NATO)

No point in being so dramatic.

Im European.. but Im also Irish..

Never had an Empire.. Subjected to mass ethnic cleansing for hundreds of years.. Mass emigration, death, oppression and sorrow is pretty much our complete history for the past 800 years.

You gonna tell me that I have to take the blame for the past crimes of other European empires?

Then stop referring to "Europeans" when you talk about these crimes and this history.

anyday mate
Just remember that its too easy to read anti english/american comments on this site when people are normaly reflecting on our piss poor politicians.

Its a shame that we,the people are judged unfairly by our so called leaders!

Were all the same,no matter the colour of our skin.We just want to get paid fairly for the work we do and have fun in our life

So, I'm asking; what's the statue of limitations for bashing us about Bush?

Won't have to "be so bloody patronising" if people start posting like they really understand what that means.


What is it with the internet that makes people post so rudely?


It let's people from europe and elsewhere try and badger Americans on issues they know little or nothing about.

For example, want to discuss how long you're government will allow you to keep your forks and spoons? I've heard banning tableware because of the potential violence makes sense to many in the UK, even though about 99% of Americans think it's ludicrous. Was that being too patronizing for you?

I fought in Vietnam, and I HAVE talked to many, many Vietnamese.

There's no animosity. It was war.

What part are you having trouble with?

Why do they even bother you? Let them throw their two pents in.

I actually traveled europe last summer for 4 weeks because I had never been outside the Americas, and my girlfriend wanted to so badly. I mean we went to almost every country west of Romania. The only thing I enjoyed was the sheer volume of history. But thats only accredited to the fact that I am a huge history fanatic. When the sun went down we could never have a good time because the people were just too different. I cant even really explain it, but their level of arrogance makes me look like Gandhi. The people who werent insanely arrogant, carried themselves in a way that reminded me of a child. This doesnt even include Paris as I only visited Normandy while traveling through france.

Not saying they owe us anything, but weve given the WORLD, not just our own country, ALOT of commodities. A few that come to mind are: flight, computers, windows, affordable automobiles, telephone, light bulbs, microwaves, denim, toilet paper, an infinite supply of otherwise absent culture, etc, etc, etc.

Europeans are also very, very bad Halo players.
