[Ha. You really think so?
[Show me where exactly I've done it George.
Just a few examples will do. Where I have insulted posters personally in the way you've insulted me.
I'd really like to see what you come up with.
I haven't insulted you personally at all
There's no need to point out such silly notions, Intrepid. This isn't a "My dad is better than your dad" contest.
The Canadians certainly need to answer for following the Americans into an illegal invasion of Afghanistan. You don't follow in the steps of war criminals and remain pure and innocent. Harper is as big a war criminal as any of the Americans or Brits or Aussies or ... .
The implications you draw from my posts are your affair - not mine. In response to your enthusiastic endorsement of Ceili's rather long and sweeping indictment of my country, I merely asked if you had ever been here and had a direct basis on which to endorse such a statement. My purpose was to call attention to my suspicion that you had none - and not to question your "right" to voice an opinion. If you fell insulted by that, then you have done it to yourself.
I might also point out that Canada had already been in the war for 2 years prior to Pearl Harbour. I will also mention that the same day that the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbour, they attacked Hong Kong and killed or captured every Canadian serving in the Winnipeg Grenadiers and Royal Rifles of Canada. Like the U.S., Canada later apologized to the Japanese interments and their families and gave them a monetary settlement. Perhaps a bit late, but it was still done.
If striking out at Canada and Australia are your way of defending your own country, then you are certainly on shaking ground.
Harper is as big a war criminal
but seriously, you guys need to chill on the ism's, you're not becoming communists or socialists, if you were you wouldn't have had to bail out your banks (like we didn't have to bail out ours here in Canuckistan)
What truly dissapoints me is not what you have written, but the number of Americans who have responded with "Well said."
First of all, your diatribe can never be considered well thought or well written...its rhetorical flaws are legion, but to see folks who I suspect are relatively intelligent, refexively praise this shite because it speaks ill of their country is just astounding.
Afghanistan was justified.
Instead I have pointed out that we are the subject of greater public scrutiny that many others, and that, as a result, our warts show very clearly.
What will happen to the rest of the world if America withdraws within its borders?
