There are only two people on this board that scream Anti-Americanism when people talk about the USA ... you are one of them ... I think we can guess who the other is.

Perhaps, then, you should point out where I "scream" anti-Americanism when people "talk about the USA." If you can't do so, you're kinda showing your true colors, eh?

:lol:

Good Lord. So that's your example of "screaming" and "talking about the USA?" - My simply pointing out that a negative statement about all Americans has anti-American undertones? :lol:

So, by the same token, if I were to say in response to something about Muslims that I took in a negative way "that sums up the mentality of of Islam..." that would be simply "talking about Islam" - and if anyone pointed out that it might have an anti-Muslim undertone, they would be "screaming" at me - and unjustly so. And of course you would be the first to point it out - and would never be that person. Because you have the same standards for everyone. B)

That's one example. One you gave me right away, then complained that you don't do that kind of thing.

Actually in many cases you were the one saying things about Muslims and Islam. The way you changed your tune in the thread about the NY Mosque was very telling. First you were the one offending, then you later got offended by the same stuff you were offending with ....

You are right, I have a standard response to some, and the hypocritical answer for others.

But I digress .....

Um... it wasn't an example of "screaming" OR "talking about the USA." It was an example of me pointing out a negative statement made about all Americans. If you can't see it for what it is, I'm going to start thinking there is something amiss .........

Actually in many cases you were the one saying things about Muslims and Islam. The way you changed your tune in the thread about the NY Mosque was very telling. First you were the one offending, then you later got offended by the same stuff you were offending with ....

Actually, you're completely wrong; but I won't get into it yet again, even as you wrongly bring it up time after time. Again and again. Over and over.

You are right, I have a standard response to some, and the hypocritical answer for others.

You most definitely do have hypocritical responses. Good to see you admit it. :)

It is always good for a chuckle, though - along with Canadians going on and on about religion in America as they claim Americans are so focused on religion.

All Canadians? :)

Did I say "that sums up the mentality of [Canada]?" No, I did not. So those who aren't looking for something that's not there would deduct that I'm referring to the Canadians who are "going on and on about religion in America as they claim Americans are so focused on religion" - since that's what I was specifically referring to.

:rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes::rolleyes:

Gee, you say that like it's a bad thing. Nothing wrong with having a nice big shiny "war machine". You will be buying more of such things from the U.S.

I wouldn't have so much confidence in that.

I'm sure there are lots of US aero space customers following the Boeing 777 Malaysian Airlines mystery wondering if good old made in the US of A technologies are really the way to go!

But hey Dick Cheney excelled at lubricating the war machine!

There is a "referendum" for such things in America at least every two years, far more often than in Canada, which didn't even have a vote in Parliament for NATO's wars. Bitching about American political process and resulting policy decisions is very Canadian, and is part of what defines the Canadian identity for some. The funny part is that during WWI and WWII, Canadians complained that America didn't join in killing their Empire's enemies fast enough.

Yeah, just think you could have stepped up to the plate with most of the rest of the world agreeing. Of course GM was doing a good business with the Nazis so that probably held things up. and I don't seem to recall Bush holding a "referendum" on Iraq.

I am very confident....Boeing stock purchase confident, just like Canadian pension accounts.

Cheney and Bush had more support for Iraq (Congress passed a resolution authorizing military force) than did FDR to kill Nazis for your fallen empire.

Nope. When the uS went in, the UN came out. It is still regarded as an illegal war, and Bush could be arrested if he comes to Canada. We support the ICC.

Then why wasn't VP Cheney or President Bush arrested in Canada ? I think Canada supports its economic survival more than the ICC. As for the UN, dig this:

The formal acknowledgement of their status, responsibilities and obligations as the occupying power makes the US occupation of Iraq which began in April 21, 2003 unique. It marked the first instance since the inception of the UN that the invader or aggressor is acknowledging and accepting responsibilities as an occupier and the UN is given approval to the situation. UNSC Resolution 1483 was unanimously approved on May 22, 2003 to validate the occupation mandate in Iraq.
