"my parents are not killers, they have never killed anyone. the military personalle are not killers, they simply do what they are told"

"but we dont decide, our government does..."

So if the army tells your father to kill you, would he do that? How dare you say this? Do you think is a justification the way your army acts? No, my father is a lovely person, only kills because he's told to do it?????????????????????????????? ? I'm going to **** you because my mind is telling me to act this way, OK?

Great justification lady, typical american

So american people are stupid, lack in personality I guess= my army decides, my government does as well, I'm gonna do what I'm told, because I'm a US mad cow!!!

Regards from Spain

I'VE GOT MANY FRIENDS WHO'S GONE TO THE STATES, AND THEY'VE LIVED IN AMERICAN FAMILIES, AND THEY'VE TOLD ME THE AMERICANS DIDN'T KNOW WHERE SPAIN WAS, THEY BELIEVED THAT HERE IN SPAIN WE DIDN'T USE THE MICROWAVE, TV, HI-FI... DON'T **** WITH ME, PLEASE!!! YOU ALL ARE IGNORANT, YOU THINK THAT IN THE WORLD ONLY EXISTS USA, AND GOD, CHRISTIAN GOD, OBVIOUSLY. (AND THE OTHER CULTURES???)
Ahhh, back in Florida people would always ask me questions such as "do you have electricity in Norway?", "is Norway the capital of Sweden/Scandinavia?", lol.

REPSOL IS AN OIL COMPANY AS WELL, AND IT'S DOING GREAT BUSINESS IN IRAK, SEE SPANISH STOCK EXCHANGE (IBEX-35) OR ANY BUSINESS NEWSPAPER LIKE EXPANSION OR CINCO DIAS...

I SUPPORT CAPITALISM, BUT NOT AS SOMETHING IMPOSED BY US

FREEDOM BABY

(WHAT DID YOU SAY ABOUT GUANTANAMO? DON'T MAKE ME LAUGH...)
i dont think quantanamo is right! and my father never did kill anyone....besides, i am not christian. the families your friends lived in were screwed up! but a majority of americans are smart, and i resentthe fact that you are calling all of us stupid....

and linda, maybe people in florida dont know much about norway.... be a little lenient, most americans have niether the time nor money to travel to europe. how would they know that you didn't run off water power?

I suppose... We Norwegians just like to think highly of ourselves. Surprised no one knew Norway gives out the Nobel Peace Prize though, which is pretty big internationally... And take it that we had to learn about all the countries in the Americas, Africa etc in primary school I had suspected that they at least knew something about it (North Europe you say? Is that like, Spain and stuff?).

This is typical of the European superiority complex.

An American eats a burger and he's eating ****. A Frenchman eats a snail and that's great cuisine.

An American watches a baseball game. That's not culture. A Spaniard play's pelote.....that's culture.

An American watches a rodeo. Non-culture. A spaniard throws a donkey off the top of a tower. Culture!

Bull****.

Americans aren't uncultured. They aren't stupid. They are actually, (and I'm talking here about the people - not the government) as good and wholesome a people as you will find. And I should know because I live here.

So, American knowledge of European geography is a bit shaky. So what?

Sure, America has it's problems but is Spain for example so wonderful? For Christ's sake it's only 5 minutes since Franco was executing all the socialists (like feltee!)

USA = OK

BETWEEN THE LINES:

APART FROM THE FACT THAT I'VE NEVER SEEN ANYONE EATING SNAILS, I DON'T THINK BURGERS ARE RECOMMENDED BY SPECIALISTS IN NUTRITION. THIS A GREAT LEGACY OF USA

An American watches a baseball game. That's not culture. A Spaniard play's pelote.....that's culture.

I DON'T THINK PELOTE IS CULTURE, BESIDES IT'S ONLY PLAYED IN THE PAYS BASQUE, NOT IN SPAIN

An American watches a rodeo. Non-culture. A spaniard throws a donkey off the top of a tower. Culture!

THE DONKEY'S ISSUE IS ONLY PLAYED IN AN SPECIFIC VILLAGE OF SPAIN, BUT RODEO IS PLAYED IN MANY US AREAS

Bull****.

BULL**** IS A ****, I DO ENTIRELY AGREE WITH YOU

Americans aren't uncultured. They aren't stupid. They are actually, (and I'm talking here about the people - not the government) as good and wholesome a people as you will find. And I should know because I live here.

OK, BUT MANY OF MY FRIENDS HAVE LIVED THERE AS WELL, AND MANY SPANISH JOURNALISTS, AND THOSE ARE THEIR CONCLUSSIONS...

So, American knowledge of European geography is a bit shaky. So what?

NOTHING, IT'S ONLY THAT US PEOPLE ARE A BIT IGNORANT, SO WHAT?

Sure, America has it's problems but is Spain for example so wonderful? For Christ's sake it's only 5 minutes since Franco was executing all the socialists (like feltee!)

5 MINUTES!!! YES, YOU'VE SHOWN YOUR KNOWLEDGE. FRNACO IS THE ONLY PERSON YOU'VE STUDIED AT SCHOOL???
WE'VE STUDIED AMERICAN HISTORY, AS WELL AS EUROPE HISTORY, THAT'S THE DIFFERENCE FROM YOU AND ME

BY THE WAY, IM CAPITALIST, I'VE GOT A BACHELOR'S DEGREE ON LAW WITH MANAGEMENT BUSINESS, AND I'VE GOT A MASTER'S DEGREE IN AUDIT, DO YOU WANT ME TO TELL YOU ABOUT CAPITALISM FOUNDATIONS? OR ABOUT THE STOCK EXCHANGE? RATIOS? BALANCE SHEET OF ANY COMPANY YOU'RE INTERESTED IN?

Well, have YOU lived there? Perhaps you should. Then you could form your own opinion rather than rely on your friends or what you read in El Pais.

I refer you to the answer I gave above.

OK, sorry 1977.

How do you know what I've studied? You seem to assume rather a lot!

Oh, I'm so impressed. Who do you think you are talking to, a 12 year old?You think you can impress me with a couple of business degrees? Big deal!

DO YOU WANT ME TO TELL YOU ABOUT CAPITALISM FOUNDATIONS? OR ABOUT THE STOCK EXCHANGE? RATIOS? BALANCE SHEET OF ANY COMPANY YOU'RE INTERESTED IN?

No thankyou. Spare me that misery.

There's been a recent pool in Spain, and americans are the worst appreciated, together with moorish (see latest editions of El Pais or El Mundo) Here in Spain we considerate american people as dummies, without any respect for human life and human thoughts, they don't even know where Spain is located, they think it is in South America... The standard american is fat, with a nil knowledge in general culture, just like Homer Simpson.
I hate you, just like all the people here, and we expect the fall of the US Empire, and the recovery of World's Peace.
What have you obtained from Irak, apart from petroleum contracts?
You don't care about irak people, you don't know their history, culture, traditions... But you don't know anything about the world in general, you're only interested in you. But all the empires have been beaten, just give us some time

**** USA, up with UK!
Who cares where spain is? Nice place to holiday, but then so would Nigeria if they did the place up a bit. AS for the spanish in general, they aren't really much better. having spent their history losing at everything, the only way they ever managed to conquer was because they were so disgustingly riddled with disease that whole armies dropped dead in front of them!
Just a thought

and a second point, what do spanish have against bulls? I wouldnt mind except the odds are so undeniably unfair. The british are just as bad. O no wait, they stopped bear baiting a few hundred years ago.
Im sure the spanish will catch up soon enough.

Because in days gone by, it was the King/Queen who looked after the country and its people.

Well, the structure of society and even the concept of nationhood are changing pretty rapidly all the time. But, what do we do, have a new anthem every 50 years?

I personally think "God Save the Queen" is a horrible dirge but I don't think we necessarily need to change the anthem everytime society is measurably altered.

Perhaps, I've always thought Australia's 'Advance Australia Fair' should be abolished. Besides most people from other countries are surprised that Waltzing Matilda isn't our anthem.
