I didn't want to hijack the very nice halloween thread, so decided to start a new one.

Aww we weren't bashing the U.S.!

Hang on, yeah we were - kind of.  

Anyway, I don't think we were bashing the U.S. in general, just some - well maybe most of their foreign policy and definately the high handed attitude that some American's have. 

There are a lot of good people in the U.S., individuals that are intelligent, kind, generous etc etc - as there are in all countries.  I would never group them all together as one whole. 

That said, your 'world police' thread was guaranteed to generate some hostility - the 'oh my gosh we do so much for the world and then they poop on us' line - well no one is buying it anymore.

That aside, it was one of the most entertaining threads ever!

:) That is true, it was entertaining. I never took it as American bashing. As I stated in the thread the American people and the government are two different entities. I certainly dislike most of what my government does. Canada is a very beautiful country full of nice people, and I love visiting.

Yeah, we were.

Hey, be proud of it! Those people deserve exactly what they get, as far as I'm concerned....

Guaranteed with a thread title like "World Police...." on a Canadian forum, she MUST have known she was going to stir **BLEEP** up...and if she sincerely thought otherwise, then she's every bit as stupid as the rest of the world thinks most Americans are!

That thread was fun, and funny as Hell, though :dude:.
