D.Sporky!This thread is stupid. Why is this thread stupid? Because the person who made it is extremely arrogent and blind to the truth. Am I saying that this did not really happen? No, of course not. What I'm saying is that people do shit all the time. Not just Americans. Our president didn't tell our troops to harrass the prisoners. Not every American is would do that, in fact 99% would NOT even think of doing that. Why? Because American's like to stand up for what's right. We try our best to free the world from oppression. And what do we get in return? Well...ask the French. What we get is media institutions such as BBC only reporting the wrong that goes on...the dark side of everything. It's because of stupid medias like BBC that the world hates America. And where did Stealth get the idea that America hates other countries? Is that why we freed Afganistan from the Taliban? If I remember correctly, stealth said that we hated Afganistan... I don't know about you fellow Americans but I centainly didn't hate Afganistan, I don't hate Russia, I don't hate Germany, I don't hate North Korea, I don't hate France, I don't hate Canada, I don't hate Bolivia... I don't hate any country, and I'm sure all the other intelligent Americans out there will say the same thing. We may hate some people that reside in other countries. Like UBL, and Saddam Hussein, and the Taliban. But is that not justified? It certainly doesn't mean that we hate the country itself. I really hate generalizations. Statements like "American's are hypocrats" and "Americans are stupid" are the most ignorant statements one could possibely make. And it's not ignorant because it was directed at Americans in particular, it's ignorant because those type of statements are extreme generalizations. And generalizations are wrong. Yes, Americans do have great pride in our nation. Aught we not to? Look how far we've come, we really are a great nation. A prosperous nation. What do you expect from us? The same kinda always negative crap that BBC and the NY Times spews? Sorry, but you won't get it. In closing then: No, American is not perfect. Our president is not perfect. Our government is not perfect. But who said it was? Just because we have pride in our nation means that we think we're perfect? That's a very wrong assumption and you should put that out of your head immediately. People make mistakes...people do wrong things. That's the sum of it all. Have a nice day.

you just said that not all americans are like the US government and its not right to genralize you, yet you said "American's like to stand up for what's right. We try our best to free the world from oppression. And what do we get in return? Well...ask the French" so now your genralizing the French in the same way you say your being genralized, whos to say all french didnt support you, and that they all agree with their government, some could have not and now you've just labelled them as all the same, lol

very well said! When I saw his source was BBC I just had to laugh.

And to quote the second link;

In one case, witness statements among the released documents allege that four drunken Americans took a 17-year-old female prisoner from her cell and forced her to expose her breasts and kissed her.

That is horrible I agree, but it's a select few who are commiting this BS not the whole damn Army. Like I said, this is just another bash the USA thread. Pure bait.

Man I am sure glad the US and allied prisoners get such great treatment. Oh wait, that's right they get their heads cut off :rolleyes:
