I have noticed you (I'll avoid the 'T word here) frequenting a number of other threads and in each of them you express the same kind of aggressive,
confrontational anti-American sentiment, though never really address the topic of the thread. I'm curious as to what is fuelling your anger/disgust
with the US?
I see you joined very recently (not that that's a bad thing); what was it that inspired you to join ATS? Did you view it as a good forum to vent your
anger and frustration in regards the US or did you start out interested in entering into discussions on a variety of topics with other like-minded
What would you like to read about/see discussed?
Do you have any thoughts on the topics you read beyond your apparent dislike for America/Americans?
I ask these questions genuinely and with no desire to insult you, accuse you or belittle your point of view. I am just genuinely curious as to your
I wonder if you might be better served articulating what it is specifically that is enraging you rather than making general statements or
confrontational and provocative posts.
In regards this topic, whilst I could understand (though don't necessarily agree) with the view that a failure to launch satellites that you believe
are instruments of oppression, is a victory for 'the little man', that doesn't seem to be the thrust of your point. It seems that instead you just
wanted to express a feeling of self-satisfaction in the face of another individual (or set of individuals') failure. This I'm not sure I do
understand. Could you explain your point of view in a bit more detail? Thanks.
Personally, I think it's unfortunate but, no one was hurt and the worst of it is a few red faces and a whole heap of cash down the pan. Not great but
it could have been much worse...
