You seem to be doing that better than any of us can.

As a nation, you're certainly very good at keeping us both entertained and slightly worried.

Like having a friend who's not quite right in the head, who has just taken ecstasy and run into a forest. We're compelled to follow him and watch, ostensibly to make sure he doesn't hurt himself, but really to video it when he does.

Don't take it personally B.E.N. they just "Post Ad Nauseum".
Like a bunch of monkeys banging on typewriters they may in time produce an other "Much Ado About Nothing".
While the USA may suffer from "Arrogance" the UK suffers from an "Overcompensated Inferiority Complex" requiring constant external validation to keep from falling into severe depression.
They're like an old friend, small in stature, who keeps getting into fights and has to be rescued.
God Save The Queen.

Lads, given the stature and general street cred of those two poaters from over the pond, I don't think we should really bother to spend too much time on this. If we ignore them they will soon get fed up with it. What the pair of them need to realise is that as this is an American based project and web site, it is not surprisingly dominated by Americans, banging on that their country is the only one in the world that matters. And they don't like it when we talk about ours.

At an international and political level, our two countries have a very good working relationship, but they cannot control some of their citizens verbal garbage, as also we can't.

The "USA" is a fantasy, like "Brangelina", Paris Hilton, or the Kardashians.

Unfortunately, this particular fantasy has the ability to destroy us all, either fiscally or physically depending on its mood at the particular time.

Do you really wonder why the rest of the world has such a morbid fascination with the corrupt circus that is the American political system ??

Now hold on TA, the USA political system is discussed in a number of other threads here, some for it, some against it. The title of this one is lets bash the Brits. We all know that Americans in these threads have the thinnest skins in the world, you only have to sneeze in the direction of the Stars & Stripes and they want to fire bullets at you. Whereas, we say fine go ahead, our country isn't perfect neither are we. The two posters here are typical of the type that gravitate to boards, as the only place where they can spout their views in public and get away with it. We shouldn't fall into their trolling ways.

TA - you soppy wotsit - I was agreeing with you :-) Sadly Paris Hilton does exist, but don't worry, she'll burn herself out before 40 (thank god).

Wiggo - agreed - Another dull post by Dull. Yes I did get it!!!

Name the ones we started and needed rescuing......

......History shows that you came to the party late - twice...

..then claimed to have saved Europe.

Also, who requested our help so that they would look good going into Iraq?

You tried again with Syria, Oh dear, this small statured nation told you to get stuffed.

Europe - Disagree. They shortened WWII by 18 months - 2 years and saved countless Allied lives. They only came in because of Pearl Harbour, they had no cause to before, they were not late.

Iraq - Agreed

Syria - Agreed

I make that 14 posts in this thread. Mr Dull troll will be chuckling over his breakfast in a few hours. You want a bottom line Dull? The UK had more respect for the USA 70 years ago than it does now. Ever wonder why?

No we still have respect for them. I for one will still stand alongside a Yank. However, don't expect me to put up with their overbearing arrogance 24/7.

As a US citizen, all I'll say is some USA bashing is fully justified these days.

As a UK citizen, all I'll say is some UK bashing is also fully justified these days.

With the caveat, that it is sensible and backed up with reasons. The problem that seti has with its boards, is too many trolls pursuing their own agenda, and we all know who the prime dozen candidates are. If they were to go, the place would be a lot quieter, but maybe a bit boring. So what do you do?

If we are arrogant we got it from the english. Who else would conquer India on the grounds that they were uncivilised.

Not quite fair Bob, it gave us Schweppes Indian Tonic Water and IPA, it wasn't that bad! Anyway, it was all about trading via the East India Trading Company, and and the Tea clippers, and the Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation Company (P&O). Nothing to do with uncivilised. Good Lord, they gave us Tiffin! Oh and by the way, my maternal Grandfather served in the UK forces in India 1920-30.
