Now if you tell them one of the steps of moving forward is to stop talking and to start listening, you'll hear that you're "speaking like a woman” … for even suggesting that the failure to listen vastly contributes to the problem.
Unlike you I won’t use a woman's voice. I'm a man and I've said how I feel.

stan in near and middle eastern languages merely means "land of" there are only 7 countries that have istan or stan at the end.
for pakistan it means "land of the pure"
why is this so interesting?
It's like finding out that shi shi ni means thanks in chinese. lol

For grins and giggles, ask a Pakistani sometime where all those "stans" came from. While you're talking to him, ask him about Bangaladesh and India too.
It could be educational for your average European.

Frankly, it seems you haven't learned... I read blame-shifting. Moaning about "others" pre-disposition absolves you of yours? Nope, doesn't work that way. So sorry.
Anyway, I think that you have made the right decision to move. You hate the country so much and are unwilling to work towards improving it, than moving is the best option. Enjoy that.
This is babble, I'm sorry I had to read it.
Who said I hate the country? I said I feel no connection to the country. Hate, or love, would imply an intrinsic connection, but as previously stated, I have no connection. This is simply the place I was born, nothing more.
How do you know I'm unwilling to work towards improving it? You don't know what I've done or what I continue to do, or what I will do after I leave. So enjoy that.

However I'm going to back up Britain due to the fact that i'm British.
I'm so proud of my country because of what we have accomplished, we took over 2/3 of the world, we are one hell of a tiny country, and still we took over that much.
We have done some crazy sh*t i know that but hey everyone learns from there mistakes, it's just the fact us compared to america or russia ect we are flippin tiny, but we took over so much, i am so proud of my country.
I have respect for america to and any other countries.
but don't say you are the powerfulist because infact your not no one is the powerfulist anyone could wipe out anyone.
i just want to say 100 percent british and fu**** proud baybii woop!
Your words, your message. Don't like what's in the mirror? Deal.
No, you haven't mentioned anything that you've done to improve that which you see as problem(s)
both at home and abroad, not on this thread.
You have b*tched about it enough though.
If you have intentions of doing something in the future, great for you. Luck with the move, carry on.
When people are predisposed to thinking a certain way, or have a certain view about you, it is best to say as little as possible and move on. It took me 2,000 ATS points to figure it out, but I think I'm getting the hang of it.
Logic. Buy some. Win some. Steal some. Trade for some. I don't care how you get it, just get it. Make the next one your best one, because from here on out I'm ignoring you without even using the ignore button.

thanks for that, I could have gone on but what’s the point we all have a dark history, and I get so tired of hearing it from Europeans who think there nations are the greatest and there so tolerant.

For some reason it is hard for me to figure all you political history buffs.
I do not see where anyone understands that the USA and the EU are under attack by Marxist/ Bolshevism.
They are not being assailed by anything even close to Nazi culture.
It is the Marxist interlopers that have created the present economic and political climate.
It is understandable how the USA and Europe have forgotten about the reality of this driving force as it has been deviously swept under the rug and confused with the Nazi's.
You keep on criticizing Empire without addressing his points relevant to our topic.
It seems that your political beliefs are limiting you - no doubt this is true of many of us, but yours cannot encompass both sides of the debate in this thread - and as soon as you cannot reply in merito, you turn it personal and attack the bearer of the bad news.
Your presupposition is that emotion clouds logic. This is not true from a psychological point of view. If your emotions are repressed, they tend to suddenly erupt and you lose your head.
Why don't you write about your emotions concerning the various things brought up here? Such as ... when I read this and this string, I feel like XYZ?
Emotions do have a place in patriotism, love and hate etc. Why rationalize? Over-rationalizing can easily turn women into an animus projection - usually a lot more unfair and cold than a real man.
(I assume you are a woman from your avatar and name, please correct me if I am wrong.)
Your avatar is cool BTW.
