Really this thread title needs to be changed, No Americans civilian or military were involved in this incident as has been shown in this thread several times now. Bashing on both sides needs to stop and some decorum restored.

Look at the facts of the incident and Deny Ignorance.

Common folks. Red light district ? It is expected.

Get over it. A small brawl doesn't represent the entire US and OZ military and their attitudes towards each other.

Really? Brawls have been going on for generations between different units in the military. This is not news.



I wouldn't take it personally, CrimsonKapital is an anti-American Australian. Just look through his past threads and you will see a pattern of hate for America. So it just goes to prove that he would pounce on this story to further his anti-American rhetoric.

I dont take his rhetoric seriously, and neither should most people, not until he gets that monkey off his back.

I don't hate America but I am sick of the hate that Americans give toward Australia. If you want me to stop than why don't you stop harrassing my country, why don't you leave my government be and quit involving us in your wars, instead of thanking our servicemen you try to BASH THEM!!!????

I think you've been buying into the MSM and/or Forum(s) propogandas. How many americans do you know that hate Australia? Who is harrassing your country specifically? Ask your government the same question as they involved themselves and they do have a right to say no. I think you're spending way too much time on the internet reading into the bits and pieces of information and to buildup a mindset about Americans and/or America.

Australia is ruled by Britain. Britain is ruled by America. Australians, please don't complain. It's simpler than it looks. You claim they came to your country, no, they rule your country. You can't make decisions without noticing America first


Britain is ruled by America???? Not so sure about that one! Who is pulling the strings of my puppet government then? It sure as hell isn't the Americans that elected them.....

No no no, you are right. I'll ring up Obama right away and tell him to bring the boys home and send them to their rooms.
Sorry about all the trouble.
I'll be writing personal apologies to all your servicemen, so be sure to check the mail!

while you're on the phone...ask him what his plans are for November 2012.

As a member of the US force I have nothing but the upmost repect for any of those in uniform....Britsh...German...Australians...does not matter...they all have my respect. I worked with an Australian Major who was one of the most professional I have ever worked for....as for the US involving the Australian military in our war...your government is responsiable for that and I have yet to meet any Australian in unifrom that was opposed to being by my side in a fight against jackals...so take it for what it is....alcohol infused stupidity

More productive than boot licking you mean? Or insulting fellow countrymen? Or being an apologist? Or trying to act like you speak for Australians. If you have an opinion,give it. Do noy speak for me and god knows how many other Australians. Most Auissies I know are not boot licking apologists.

You do not speak for Australians apologist.

Australia didn't seem to mind when America joined the British empire fighting WW1.
If the US hadn't joined "your war" in 1941 you'd be speaking Japanese now.
Seems to me we joined the wars of the Crown lands long before Australia joined our wars.

No worries though, I have the utmost respect for Australian soldiers. Some of the scrappiest fighters to ever see combat.
Fighting in a Mickey D's though - you know that's US territory, right?


Oh look, a moderator engaging in "Anti-Australian" discussions...

Don't start with that bull#...please. Australia was more than capable of defending itself, especially if an invasion were to occur. Hell, we were the first force to defeat Japan in a major battle, the first force to repel the Nazis on land. FFS, give credit where it is due! We had already won the battle for Australia by the time the US came parading down here on their high horse.

Scrappiest? What do you mean? The disorganised term, or the determined term? if it is the former you can get lost. Australia has, for the most part been a professional force for many, many years, more so than what can be said about the US Military, especially in it's current state (with the pissing on dead bodies, and Quran burnings).

If your post was serious (disregarding the last part) then i have lost respect for you, both, as a member of ATS and as a moderator. You should be displaying the upsides to ATS, not reveling in your arrogance and bias against other countries/forces.
edit on 31-5-2012 by daaskapital because: sp


I agree with all of that. Well said Daas


The Japanese said themselves that invading Australia was "impossible" in WW2 yet Im sure this guy thinks America somehow saved us from the japanese.

Impossible.

Dont be too hard on people like that one. Propaganda leaks from their ears. They are full to the brim with propaganda. We should pity them if anything. Dont let em get under your skin mate.

You should really do some more reading. And try to find something that isnt American propaganda.

And what the hell do you mean by "your war" ???? Im dying to know. Our war? Who do you think we are exactly?

to your post.

edit- and you can keep your Dugout Dougs to yourself. Cowards like that are no heros to Australians.

Oh, so I guess you have elected yourself as the spokesman for the majority?? Dude, your hatred towards EVERYONE just amazes me! Have you EVER has a nice thing to say about anyone? Don't be mad at all Americans. Do you really think Americans have anything to do with what our government does?? I can understand you being upset with the U.S. putting a base in your country. If you are so upset, why don't you tell me what you have done to complain to your government for allowing it in the first place?? I see you always supporting OWS, well why don't you start your own in Australia? Or is bashing others who don't hold the same negative attitude as yourself make you feel better? But to call someone a boot licker because they speak their mind, (as we all know that you do) really points out your agenda! You can either agree to disagree, but name calling isn't going to solve anything, except becoming a pawn in the same game that you proclaim to hate!

You do not read all my posts.

And maybe you should take your own advice.

And I am not mad at all Americans. You think you know me from reading a couple posts? I have American friends in my life and on ATS.

You are being ludicrous.

And when did I say I spoke for Australians? I have an opinion. I did noy claim to speak for Australians. The apologist did. That was why I was annoyed obviously.

You are the kind of guy that really needs Spark Notes arent you?

There is a big difference between you and me. Yes, I have made posts that were in anger and came out ugly. But I evolve everyday and learn that spewing hatred and not being able to understand others feelings is one of my weaknesses that I strive to change every day.

You say you aren't angry at Americans but yet your posts prove otherwise! You saying you have American friends is like me spewing "blanket hate speech" toward black people and then turning around and say, "I have many black friend.". Doesn't jive now does it?

I am not trying to attack you, but try turning down the hate a little bit. You seem to have valid points in a lot of posts I (have seen) but your attitude is what cause all of the hate filled posts back at you.

Just a suggestion. I don't hate you, (even though I am an American) but arguementative and angery posts will only get you the same kind of responses back.

I am done now, if you want to slam me go right ahead. But I will let you know up front, I will not continue in your negative rants.

Have a nice day mate!

That would be in your best interest. We both know you cant hang with me.

I dont appreciate your ludicrous accusations by the way.

Your comments are akin to saying that I am racist because I am against Affirmative Action. I am,and Im not racist. One of my best mates is aboriginal. I think its because people like you tend to be hysterical and you have no depth to your opinions. None at all. You need Spark Notes hey?

You have a nice day too now.

And on topic- We are all individuals. If some Australians want to be apologists,thats up to them. But they do not speak for Australia.

In my opinion,this is no more than a brawl between groups of individuals. Some posters seem to want to make more of it than that. I think these guys will be cool with each other when they cool off. Most guys in the military are stand up guys. Not ones to hold a grudge. No big deal. Its good to let it all out every now and then.

Seeya.

edit- and I think its far more likely that you have seen some of the 50 or so members that make regular prsonal attacks on me so you assume its safe to do so. I know you buddy. Dont blame me because your opinions have little depth. Untrained laughter coming from the fifth row is all you are dude

to your post.


Yes, both WW1 and WW2 were"your wars" before it was America's.
Britain declared war on Sept 3, 1939 I believe and fyi Australia was at that time not even independent, not having ratified the Staute of Westiminster until 1942. They made it retroactive to '39.
At the time Britain declared war Australia was still a Dominion land under the English crown.

So yes, WW2 was "Australia's war" before it was America's.
Maybe Japan wouldn't have successfully invaded, we'll never know but the odds were long against you.
It is a fact that US warships were the only in thing left in the water between the Japanese and Australia after the fall of Singapore.

I have nothing but respect for Australia and I fail to see why you think I was somehow attacking you or your country.
Maybe it's you that need to do some reading and perhaps tone down your responses at other members.

It's the same story in the UK and everywhere else Germanicus. There are people who understand politics and oppose American influence, whether physical or otherwise. And there are those who grew up on a diet of MTV and Friends and think America is some sort of beacon of freedom and hope in the west.

You are not allowed to mention that America is influencing and manipulating Australia for their own gains, because these people have been indoctrinated into believing America are the good guys, so don't be mad at America for stealing your sovereignty with their politricks.

what you have to keep in mind is that their arguments are frail, and they wouldn't be saying the same thing if it was france exerting influence over Australia, even though France is a much better country(but certainly not a good one), and the reason why is because these folks have just been born and raised to yank-worship.

they don't know any better.

Australia has so much industry and is positioned so well to be a self-sufficient power house in the future, it will be a crying shame if the yank worshipers in australia take that away and cede all power to the yankydoodlepigdogs.

i know there are many australians in this thread who would love if australia was a state of America. You disgust me as a Brit, I can only imagine how physically ill my good friend Germanicus feels reading your traitorous bile

First of all ... It's the Air Force... they are like the retarded cousins with the really cool toys but always cry for their mommies....

Second... Obviously it says there was some type of verbal altercation between caucasians and darks skinned people... in other words possibly African Americans... ok... Now I am almost certain a certain word was brought out that this happened...

We (Americans) are not big and bad people... something went down and only who was there would know exactly what happened. Maybe it went the other way making us look like the bad guys... crap happens dude... especially in any branch of the military around the world. everyone always tries to prove who is better.

The rapid Allied defeat in the Pacific caused many Australians to fear that the Japanese would invade the Australian mainland. While elements of the Imperial Japanese Navy proposed this in early 1942, it was judged to be impossible by the Japanese Imperial General Headquarters, which instead adopted a strategy of isolating Australia from the United States by capturing New Guinea, the Solomon Islands, Fiji, Samoa, and New Caledonia.

en.wikipedia.org...

Long odds my #ing ass! Impossible. You cannot invade Australia. We fight too hard and we have a massive continent.

You fail to see because you are arrogant. And it is enough to make me want to punch a wall or something.

And who are we? We are not Britan. We are Australia.

You need to read more,not me. The Japanese rolled over the Americans and the British. Our forces shocked them when they met us on the battlefield. We were the first to defeat the Japanese in a long long time. They had respect for us. Not for you.

And why did your Navy want to make sure we were not 'contained' ??? Because you and the British needed our help. Thats why.

You are welcome.

edit- and I,and many other Australians take great offence to your arrogance. If you have respect for us,stop disrespecting us. Your lack of respect is clear. I do not appreciate it. I also think it is clear that you have only read the Americans history. What is your opinion of dugout doug for example? We dont think much of him around here. For good reason. Yet you people claim he was some kind of hero. He was a coward and he proved that time and time again.

And sorry andout my tone. I guess only heavy hitter member and mods are allowed to show emotion on ATS. I will try harder.
