God, don't say that. I know its getting that way but its not that bad yet. Blair did seem a bit taken in by all the excitment over going to war, I think he wants to run America to be honest.

Honestly the way I see this entire topic is that it's fine to hate America, because yes America has serious issues, but your respective countries are no better, socially, politically, or morally. I don't care how much someone hates Bush, because that is not a good enough reason to hate the entire country. We're not here to compete which countries are better. And, can you judge a country just based on what you see on your local news, which as someone pointed out, is biased and scewed? If we're gonna talk "objectively", then it's difficult to comprehend someone who merely hates America for our foreign policy "fall-out".

Which is why I said I don't hate Americans, it just tends to be the people they elect.

^Right on. But, there aren't too many good guys that can run for office. I don't personally think Kerry would have been any better, because essentially he had the same position on the major issues, but his attempt to appeal to both sides didn't sit well with hardcore liberals. I dunno if you kept up with the Democratic Primaries, but I really liked Dennis Kucinich (I think I was the only one), Al Sharpton, and Howard Dean- pretty much the extreme liberals. I don't consider myself a liberal but these guys were (in my opinion) the best of the worst. Out of the GOP, I really would like to see John McCain run again, I think most would agree. Almost everyone I know has positive things to say about him.

Is that really the only two choices you think the US have considered? Helping out when there is something to be gained or not at all?
What about getting involved in the countries who are in similar trouble to what happened in Iraq but who don't have any oil or any other way they could pay your country back?
Like the thousands of troops we have in Africa? And no, I didn't say that was the only two...I asked you which of those two do you believe is better?

Question: So do you hate America?

No. I do not. It is my favoured holiday destination, because the people are so friendly and the shopping is so incredibly cheap.

Nah, the European super state won't go ahead, not with Britain's full involvement anyway. Gordon Brown is much too smart an economist to let Britain go down such a disastrous road, I'm 99% sure he's just using the Blair idea of being the centre of Europe to eventually bolster his own position when he decides to take over Labour.

Joining the Euro won't happen either, makes absolutely no sense in our current economic position, and the government is aware of this.

everyone hates america because one: george bush is a horrid president, and two: america seems to think it is dominant over every other country in the world, and that is why the middle east hates us.. i think, but still, its dumb how we think we are doing better than any other country when we arent, the war, and we have a bad economy, and its just retarded
