A rag-tag bunch of BRITISH farmers.

OK - so they rebranded themselves during the War of Independence, but that
didn't change their essential nature.




Oh but it *did* from that day to the present.

Although your insults might be better if they were translated into

standard
UK units.

7th grade is meaningless over here, and this is a uk newsgroup.
==========================

Really? I guess that those is uk have a problem reading the language,

eh
stupid? There are 5 groups.
no one cares about yours....


I took the liberty of replying without these two groups in the cross
posts. They then make some smartass reply which no-one intelligent ever
sees and sink back into the slime from which they came.

I trust my American friends on these two groups will not object if I
wind this foul mouthed child up a little about US history.

America entered
these wars because America had come under attack


Isn't that the way it's supposed to be?? I'm curious about common

opinion
on this subject....... I guess we (USA) are in a catch 22 kinda

position
because of our wealth and power. Half the time I hear people complain
because we are getting involved in stuff that's happening on the other

side
of the world, when it's none of our business and the rest of the time

I hear
people complain because we should be doing more to help them because

we have
all this wealth and power. What do all of you think we should do?????

I'm
really curious, not trying to rile anyone.

don't wory about it. You are in pretty much the same position as the
British Empire was at the turn of the last century.
Once you have wealth and power people automatically dislike you because
they haven't got it.
All you can do is what seems necessary at the time and not get hung up
on the worries and petty motivations of others.
It does strike me that the US is beginning to act like a great power. In
Vietnam you still wanted the world to love you, which is always a
mistake. Now with Iraq it looks like the US has got over that hang up
and is willing to do what it necessary.
Azimov in the foundation triology has the mayor say "never let your
conscience stop you doing what is right". (I probably paraphrase) It is
probably the only rule a solitary great power can follow.

Well being mistaken for somewhere noted for Whiskey is probably not

soo
bad.


Kentucky must have something more than Whiskey, grass and Race horses
but it is a civilised combination that I could live with :-))

Kentucky would probably rival your fair land for beauty. It is one of the
most beautiful states, if your favorite color is green. However, I think
Tennessee has better whiskey, and it's very green too ;-)

I must admit that these are the areas of the US I would like to visit.
Also places like Dakota and even Alabama. Who the hell wants to see just
another city?
