Forgive me for not noticing that goregrinder is a moderator. It didnt occur to me to check because up until now it was simply an article of faith with
me that moderators on ATS wouldn't start a thread with 2 sentences and a link to a propaganda video. I suppose I'm now going to deny that
much-cherished bit of ignorance.
When I was in boot they showed me about 10 solid minutes of that. I loved it because up till that point I'd only heard 3 songs in the previous 9
weeks and 2 of them were reville and taps. Other than that I was not too impressed though.
To goregrinder: I'd like to point out that I am neither opposed nor entitled to oppose your expression of opinions/patriotism/whatever. You might
never guess it, but I think America kicks tons of arse too. My problem is that I've seen way too many of these threads which start prick-measuring
contests between American and Chinese members, and they don't really go anywhere. I have basically formed the opinion that a lot of people on this
board really do post such things either because they are way too bored way too often, want to have flame wars, or are just farming points by pissing
I suppose I'm a little zealous about the idea that ATS is a really valuable source of information and that it sorta takes away from that if we all
create a new thread everytime we find something neat online. (i mean, there is a lot of neat crap online you know... thats a lot of threads!).
No hard feelings.
