Before you can pick a fight with your mother and father, you must grow up or you'll just get a damned good spanking and get sent to bed.
And that my friend, is how we Brits view you Yanks.

The simple fact that in 233 years we have surpassed Britain in its what.... centuries of existence is evidence enough of that. I do think this, in some strange way, is a source of embarrassment and humiliation or simply spouting this kind of rhetoric are just coping mechanisms for the now marginalized Britons.
but the majority of people I met while in Britain were vehemently anti-American. If you even slightly mention that they may be a bit biased or simply anti-American, the first thing they tell you is that your an "arrogant American" etc.

I agree, although i am sure there are many in the province who wouldnt!!LOL.
The British soldier is the best in the world. They have to make do with the least amount yet are still the best trained and level headed troops ever to wear uniform. IN contrast, the american tactics has always been maximum firepower with no real tactical thinking except blow the crap out of everything. The brits however do the job using the least amount of firepower using expert fieldcraft techniques, fire and manouver onto the enemy position, speed, accuracy, agression and guts, and flexibility to change tac in the fluidity of battle. Tempared with years of operational peace keeping skills adding compassion to the mix. Also, with all of the skills requiered for the average infantry british soldier in terms of training, it is above par of even the US rangers, and that is just a normal infantry soldier! They are the best in the world, but they are lions lead by idiots

Very interesting read. And all this time I assumed Britain And America were on the same page. I guess we are not. It will be interesting to see how this unfolds.
