But the fact is that if you bash any group based on race your thread is deleted from ATS, why isn't it the same when it comes to nationality?

Less of a personal attack, seemingly? Ask the mods that.

How do you bash a nationality without getting personal? The art of Propaganda, maybe? Thats one of the problems I have with America (not Americans). The Main Stream Media is our "mouthpiece" to the world. There was never a more biased agend-ized bit of spew than them. Oh, and our famous "Military Industrial Complex".

And that leads back to the dual nature of our utterances vs. actions. Thats the part you hear me bash about.

It would help if some people read an entire thread before claiming everyone is "yank bashing". But I guess it is more fun to create a thread trolling about anti american trolls. My prediction: 30+ stars. You would have got more if it was 3 hours earlier.


PS- Is this going to be labelled Brit bashing now?

now that would be an excellent "taking the piss thread" between Poms and Aussies.

I don't feel left out. I'm glad your little outburst and subsequent disappearance on my thread helped pave the way for this thread.
I'm going to give you a S & F to help you on your quest.

I mean seriously? Why's everyone speaking like every American is the same? We actually aren't and this is quite hurtful. We don't "bash" what ever country any of you are from. We're actuay fascinated and are curious about you. And what ever you think about the average American is wrong and I can tell you that. I mean we all have those r-yards in our respective countries.

Derogative terms aren't always bad... in fact they can lead to excellent evening entertainment.

We once met some French guys on a night out drinking and they called us "Krauts"... we asked them where their white flag was and we had an excellent multicultural evening in no time.

Give it a rest

Easy for you to say, you're not a "Yank".

By the way, that is a derogatory term you know.

WELL!
While the British may endearingly refer to the inhabitants of the USA as "Yanks", where I grew up the term applied only to those folks north of the mason-dixon line - and yes, it was considered slightly derogatory....
then I moved to Texas!

Hi EvanB,

I just wanted to say thanks for posting what you did and having a heart for us. I can't help but think that your experience in Allied Mobile Forces helped to shape you into the person that you are as it did me.

As an American, I often feel like lashing out when I feel that folks from other countries are bashing on the USA. I am of a generation that sort of straddles two worlds of thought when it comes to how America's actions in the world are viewed.

On one foot we have been raised to believe that America helped everyone out of their troubles at one time or another and that that is why everyone loves us, or should. And on the other foot, well, all the revisionist stuff, where we mock Christopher Columbus Day for obvious misunderstandings, and all that.

I did used to believe that everyone should love us because we saved their asses at some point. Buuuut....

...then the reading and the history classes, especially the history classes, and it became obvious.

That we did not save anyone's butt at all. On a man to man basis, oh yeah, lots of heroics on all sides, but on a National level?

So I dunno what to do any more. Just pray for better days, I guess.

What freaks me out right now though, my friend, is the mainstreaming of insanity.

I used to have some pretty wacky views in my youth, about things like guns, and governments wanting to take the guns. I'm rambling, but # it. Then there was the stuff one would do with the guns. The whole thing ended up just making me sick. But I got over it. And continued to learn.

But now (!), it's like everyone is doing it, like some sick fad. I actually have relatives who informed me at Christmas that they have guns, are buying more guns, and fully expect the government coming for the guns, or some other SHTF situation is going to cause them to have to use them. And they are smiling at me while telling this stuff.

It's like a nightmare. What kind of deluded moron could possibly think that getting more guns is an answer.

So we got issues dude.

But I am really appreciative of your extension of kindness.

Anyway, you guys still do practice jumps at jump school out of dirigibles?

Maybe if America would get their sh#t together and stop being such an international concern, then some of the flak would ease off. I personally have no quarrel with Americans. The American government, on the other hand, I have serious quarrel with. And so should you.

You guys go ahead and have fun .When China decides to "branch out" in the future.We will forgive you.Just like in ww2.When the Europeans stuck their heads in the sand.They let the Nazis built up on the continent they built and built and people said nothing would happen.Then you came knocking on our door.

In the Pacific Ocean, a continent sat on it's butt and sent troops away because.They thought that Japan wouldn't dare come here.Well when they did dare to come one island chain away.Guess whose door you came knocking on.

The fact is there is only one country that can fight a war in two Oceans.So bury your heads in the sand.When it happens,and history has proven it will.Just knock we will forgive you,because you will have nowhere else to go.
