Authorities found Guede's DNA evidence inside the murdered roommate. Where is Amanda's boyfriend's DNA? And those here who say no, the two of them were involved, explain exactly their involvement?

Your geologists argument is not reasonable, they should be held accountable. It is their job to predict these catastrophes along other things. If a meteorologists didn't predict a tornado and it destroyed a town, the obvious blame would lie with the weatherman.

Wrong. The largest defense contractor in the world in not American.


Wrong. BAE is number 2.

en.wikipedia.org...

As we can see, the list is dominated by US contractors, not european ones.


It's in fact a British company, BAE Systems. Amongst others it own's the American company Bradley:-


You seem lost...one of your countrymen ignorantly stated that the US gets all its military equipment from europe, when that is clearly not the case. Try harder...

Russia had more to do with the defeat of Nazism during WWII that America. Fact.


Without all the American equipment they would have been beaten in a year. Lend/lease saved Russia and the rest of Europe from the Nazi's.

I've been to Russia many times and WW2 history is very important to them. They call it the Great Patriotic War, and just on the edge of Moscow there are giant monuments showing how close the Nazi's got to the city itself.

Did you know that in 1944 over 60% of the Russian Armies equipment was American?

We also gave them massive amounts of food and medical supplies.

All allies contributed, but without American help Russia and England would both have fallen. 2,000 locomotives and 11,000 railcars were supplied under Lend-Lease along with hundreds of thousands of trucks (many still in use today). Likewise, the Soviet air force received 18,700 aircraft while the British got transport airplanes and the ammunition for their fighters and bombers.

Your fact, is really just your opinion.

Don't forget, you'll have to give back most of the weapons and vehicles your "military" uses, they were all made by European companies. Your "beer" sucks ass too.

Funniest tooth for tooth reply in the thread....


Must get the prize for the most insults in a paragraph...


But seriously we mustn't allow ourselves to get sucked into National blame games, we are all subject to the whims of those we elect, and once we elect them, they go off and start conquests for their real masters, the super-rich.

Once we elect these idiots we become passengers, it doesn't matter if it's Europe, the USA or Asia, there are no real Democracies or Republics, they are all fake and we have all been taken for a ride.

We shouldn't allow ourselves to fall into these false divisions, we have far more in common with each other,we are all facing financial ruin,we are all subject to the bankers,we all want political representation, we are all seeking the same thing.

There's a wave of positive potential going around the world right now and we should all be surfing it.

United..the people...will prevail.

No, the russian winter mixed with bad military planning had more to do with the nazis failures...that and the fact that we sent financial aid to europe before we actually intervened and finished what you all couldn't.

Um, you can't predict earthquakes like thunderstorms.

Seriously, did you think you could?

What, you mean like the way Americans destroyed the native populations and built your insidious nation over civilisations that were thousands of years old? At least the Europeans treated them with more dignity your own people did.

Wow, just, wow.

Can you at least try to debunk my stats?

European (and other) colonizers from multiple nationalities destroyed native populations.

This is so massively NOT true.

Though it could still be pretty lousy, you were probably somewhat better off if you were colonized by British and possibly Dutch than you were if you were colonized by Spanish, Portugese, Germans, Italians, Turks, Arabs or Mongols.

What does any of this have to do with the Amanda Knox scandal?

Oh, nothing. Hm.

Amanda Knox did not live a virtuous life over in Italy. She went with the world, taking up
with her "new" boyfriend, her parents not around to object. Doing hashish, goes with
the life not of God. Anything is fine, right? There are consequences secularists, nonbelievers are blind to when you go against God's plan, He knows what is best for us.

You may object with "off topic" but looking at the whole story, American youth shouldn't be running free to do as they wish on another continent. Okay, they could do it here... Have you noticed a lot of twenty somethings are not mature these days? They need the
guidance of their parents.

It's back to morality, mortal sin isn't even considered a sin anymore.


p.s. I have a child graduating college soon who may be offered a job overseas. I don't want to her to go. These are grave times.

Most Italians only dislike Americans because we have troops and military installations on their soil.

I've spent a lot of time in Vicenza and the consensus there is primarily against us military.

Italians, just like most people, don't just blindly hate Americans. They hate us because we are occupying their land. I think you'd feel the same if there was an Italian base near your home.


Given that Italy is part of NATO [North Atlantic *Treaty* Alliance] and European military forces train in the USA all the time, I wouldn't think twice. Prince Harry is flying helicopters somewhere near me right now.

Normally an occupying army doesn't permit the native army to exist any more, and doesn't get permission from a democratically elected government.

If Italians really want to exit NATO they can vote for people who will do that. If it's a big deal, it would certainly be an important political position. A government in the Phillipines asked the USA to leave a huge and valuable naval base. The USA left.

So you think it was JUST the US that supplied arms to Russia during WWII? Read and LEARN:-

Given the evidence - I am convinced Knox was involved. So no - I'm not shedding any tears for her. I get angry just thinking about it.

I do have a question for you, though - where was your outcry when Troy Davis was executed? When 7 out of 9 eye witnesses recant their testimony and complain of police coercion, and the man is denied a further hearing and summarily executed, maybe you should be making noise.

The West Memphis Three lost 18 years of their lives, not to mention Damien was so close to being executed. Did you make noise back then?

What is it about Knox that makes you so mad? All of the above are American, too.

You know, I honestly believe that Amanda Knox, as pretty as she may or may not be, is guilty of murder. When you commit a crime like that, you take the consequences that come with it. She wasn't raped.... The guards just made suggestive comments to her...Get it straight.

I am catching up on this this thread but I gotta get to you before I do.

I got jumped in Padova. Do you realize how far North that is of Rome? So that being said; even at 19 I was too smart ever to set foot in Rome. And I never will. So you will have to catch me someplace else.

Otherwise I totally agree. R.I.P. Meredith.

Hold on. Europeans didn't start the slave trade or start the conquering of native peoples around the world and land stealing. Everybody who could do that did it since 5000 BC. It just happened that since around 1500 AD (battle of Lepanto) the Europeans were winning. Previously other groups were winning.

The British Navy ended the overseas slave trade.
