foreign companies to OVERRULE American law on US soil a sign of American Imperialism?
THANK YOU!!!! I have not posted here on ATS in quite some time, but this thread is making me FURIOUS with the extreme hatred and IGNORANCE that is
flowing from Germanicus (not that I'm really surprised, to be honest)
What I am surprised about is that nobody else is calling him out on his BS. So for that I thank you, OccamsRazor04. Please keep up the good work!

It never ends with the American Governments Imperialism does it?
God I wish America would leave the Pacific alone and stop.
What the hell is wrong with them? Our part of the world finally becomes the new power and now the United States muscles in with its military and
diplomats. Its sickening.
edit- I doubt anyone will have the guts to make an appeal because if they did, they know that they would go on the United States' # list. And people
wonder why so many around the world have a problem with the United States. They even try to screw their 'friends'. This kind of thing is why so many
South Koreans hate the United states Government for example..

Germanicus, it's quite obvious your hatred for the USA has BLINDED you to the point of making absolutely NO sense whatsoever in your posts. To the
point where what you say has absolutely nothing at all to do with the topic at hand. What you have said is so "off" that it's basically a
Normally your anti-US bias is quite obvious, but at least you base it on something that's real, something that's actually happening. You have your
personal opinion on what's going on, and that's fine. I may disagree with you, but whatever, we all have different opinions.
But this case is different. Why, you may ask? Because you are FLAT OUT WRONG about what is happening. You are ignorant to what the situation posted
about in the OP actually is. I will try to help you here.
You are carrying on about US Imperialism, the US bothering Pacific nations, etc. OK, please remind me what this has to do with the OP's article?
Nothing. Nothing at all. This is NOT about the US harassing ANYONE, this is NOT about the US getting involved in ANYONE'S business.
I'll explain this in the most simple terms possible so that you may more clearly understand, and next time perhaps take time to READ and COMPREHEND
something before flying off the handle preaching your US hating BS.
You see, the US has laws. All countries have laws. When a business is operating in a country (in this case, the USA) they have to follow the laws of
the country in which they are operating (again, in this case, the USA)
Now, what this thread is about, what the OP's article about, is that they are trying to make it so that FOREIGN companies (NOT US companies) who
operate inside the USA do NOT have to follow our laws.
I'll repeat that, because it's obvious that you completely missed it while reading the OP's article (you did read the OP's article, right?)
They are trying to allow FOREIGN companies to operate INSIDE THE USA and NOT FOLLOW THE LAWS OF THE USA. Do you understand that? Please say yes,
because it's a simple concept and I don't know how else to break it down for you.
So what we have here, is you either not reading, or failing to comprehend the article in the OP, and then using said article to attack the US. When,
in fact, the US is the one under attack should the things mentioned in the article come to pass.
Surely you're against this, right? If a company operates inside the USA, they should have to follow the laws of the USA. Right? That's all this thread
is about. Obama is trying to allow foreign companies operating in the US to NOT follow US law.
This has ZERO to do with Imperialism, harassing other countries, or anything else you love talking about so much. Please, next time you are going to
spew hatred for the USA, at least make sure you are on solid ground before you start screaming.
