Just wondered also.... As people in Louisiana are burning the Union Jack against BP... do you think Brits care about that?
Are we in uproar or are there threads saying all kinds of crap about Americans because of it?
The difference is... to us the flag is a piece of material.... to you guys it's a part of your family or something.
It's about context, these people weren't complaining about America, neither were they Anti-American.... they were against owners of a football club who happen to be American... it was a protest, symbolic gesture.... not an attack on America.
Some of the comments on this thread are just ridiculous.
Many around the world find your flag itself offensive.
I don't see the purpose in burning our flag though, especially over a sport, I find that offensive,

please please please do not take much notice about this act. its just football and nothing to do with the hate of america or the american people. dont let it get misinterpreted as nothing more than a protest against gillet and hicks, who own the club, and have ran up huge debts for one of the most prestegious clubs in football. i am a liverpool fan and im angry at the two co'owners but i would'nt go as far as burning flags, i respect america and its people. this was more than likley the act of indiviuals who did'nt think very deeply about how to protest there oppinions in the correct manor. dont judge our nation on a few mindless idiot's.

Sorry friend but no american I know of supports the burning of any flag. Not ours not yours and not even the IRAQ flag.
When the USA invaded Iraq we destroyed the statue of an A hole not burning flags and there bible's. "koran or wtf ever its called".
