The one thing that really made me sick was watching an American women moving her finger across her neck like she was slitting someones throat, while listening to an American Negro singing, what you gonna do when Obama comes for you. Some people in that country are f**ked in the head.
It actually made me think it was staged it was that patheticedit on 4-5-2011 by Redevilfan09 because: (no reason given)
I take that as a racist statement and I am offended by that.
I demand an apology!

What I am concerned about is the slippery slope that the US Government has started to slide down, and the apparent blood lust of the American people.
It raises the question - how are we better than them, if this is the way we react, and if these actions are deemed acceptable?

I know I am a late comer to this thread, and I'm sure that this has been posted several times already here, but I would like to thank the OP for this thread..... it is important I think, for us Americans to see just how we are preceived in the eyes of the rest of the world. I also want to thank the OP for the careful way it was posted and not coming right out with another US basing thread. Well done, friend.
I watched with a certain amount of disqust as my fellow countrymen cheered at the news of the death of OBL....while we condemned the very same actions by other world citizens after 9/11 and watched in utter horror as Somalians danced and cheered when they shot down one of our helicopters. I see these actions by some of my countrymen as hypocritical, which I unfortunately believe is exactly one of the discriptions tagged to the US by many in other countries.
Do I blame them for seeing my country in such an ill light? No, I do not. We've done this to ourselves and we deserve what disdain is thrown in our direction. I would have thought we, collectively, would have acted with a little more couth and decorum.
Tell me other world citizens, where there mass crowds of frenzied populous cheering and such in your countries? Britain? Spain? Your citizens were murdered just like ours in the name of terror. Did you have masses cheering in the streets at the death of OBL? If there were, we did not see them here plastered all over our TVs, but I'm fairly well certain you all bore witness to ours. For my country, please allow me to extend my sincerest apologies as for a long time now we have not given you much reason to see us in the best light.
One may get the idea here that I am not in favor of any actions to rid the world of groups with intent to do harm, to any of us in any country. This is not the case. I've no love lost for OBL, AQ or Taliban or any other hate group who's sole purpose is to inflict harm to anyone. However, while I am concerned about what happens now with these groups I am much more concerned about the terrorists right here in my own country, and I'm not referring to sleeper cells.
The World English Dictionary defines a terrorist as this:
a. a person who employs terror or terrorism, esp as a political weapon
And the definition of terrorism as this:
1. systematic use of violence and intimidation to achieve some goal
Now I ask, how could the US not be seen in the eyes of the rest of the world any differently than OBL? So go ahead my fellow countrymen, fill your hearts with pride and joy that we got the 'boogey-man'. Just please do not get too outraged when the rest of the world cheers when this once proud, distinguished and respected nation is brought to it's knees and put in it's place.

Don't you know.. The United States doesn't have to follow international law, much like the soviet union when they where taking over the world. Who is going to stand up to the United States. By the way Australia and New Zealand.. two of my favorite countries... Hope to immigrate to one of them soon.
Perhaps you should read this...
And I challenge ANYONE here, to take 10 minutes, and simply imagine...."your sitting at home and a call comes in/a knock on the door /a friend rushes to your house /a news flash on your tv I¨m sorry -insert your name here- but your wife,husband,child,father,mother WHOEVER you hold dear has been killed tell me you do not, will not feel anger, and then when,if they kill the person,persons who did it, you DO NOT FEEL RELIEF,SATISFACTION and even JOY that the person who CHANGED YOUR LIFE FOREVER is dead.

Poor OBL boohoo..He got what he deserved. If he had killed 3000+ people including children in AUS would you have offered him a cookie and a warm meal for his efforts? My uncle died in the twin Tower attacks. I didn't want to see OBL keep running his network and keep killing more people. When he was killed he had more warning then many of the 3000+ people he had slaughtered.
I'm sure my post will be removed to protect the faint hearts that can't handle that the great patriot bin laden did not get a fair trial.
