    Actually it is more like playing America the Beautiful. Why should this be considered disrespectful? Basically it is just a song saying: "I love my country. My country is very pretty. I will protect my country."

    So the Star-Spangled Banner is what? A song about how we gave the British flowers and chocolates before we started the orgy?

    I don't care if the Chinese knock down the aircraft of New America. Why should any Old American care?

    But China believes the EEZ out to 200 miles means that states don't have the right to conduct recon exercises... which is utter bull, and ironic because China does the exact same thing in the EEZs of Japan, Korea, Taiwan and Viet Nam...

    So, regardless of the original intent of the music, it sucks forever and is evil now? Sorry, but I'm too much a music lover to buy that.

    That would be an obvious punch in the throat to the Queen, so no... we shouldn't (sarcasm)

    The ONLY thing in the lyrics I posted that could 'upset' some delicate constitutions like yours would be this...

    But if the wolves come
    What greets them are the hunting rifles

    If you're not secure in your manhood enough to let something this trivial slip by, I really don't know what to say.

    Not the same... and the U.S. and U.K. have great relations today. The Chinese government has and still does regard the U.S. with disdain. I was living in China when the bombing of the embassy in Yugoslavia occurred and the anti-American propoganda (which this song played a part) that went on for weeks on end. Do you remember the Chinese reaction to the U.S. EP=3 recon plane that the Chinese illegally forced down which landed and was held in Hainan Province??? Do you remember the propoganda the Chinese government used??? Do you READ Chinese? Do you understand Mandarin?!?!? GET REAL!!!
    Has nothing to do with two lines in a song. Get over it.
