    Unless, of course, you are critical of Muslims are Islam. Then you'll be taken to court, have your life threatened, or perhaps even be murdered.

    It seems Europeans are now being taught that Americans did not participate in either WWI or WWII, and the Marshall Plan, to them, might be from a western movie. It's truly pathetic what's going on over there.

I wasn't alive during the Blitz, but my father was, as was his father, and my uncles, and my aunts, and my neighbours, and their parents, and my co-workers' parents. It is real to us, it's not just some story like it is to you guys.

    But you don't know what I'm talking about.
    Yeah, and I remember when Bunjil created the Kulin nations 'cause my second cousin on my mothers side married a person who was 1/16th aboriginal.

    There's no reason why anyone should listen to a preach of morality from a person who clearly has none of it in his heart and mind.
    It's abundantly obvious that there is a bias in this thread: pro-west and anti-poverty. Israeli and American foreign policy are very clear, and they are allies, and this is a conservative forum. Most ppl posting here are pro-west, it's clear as day.

    Sorry you got offended but I hardly care. Your country is to blame for senseless death just as much as the pirates are.

    I doubt anyone is really too concerned or offended by your opinions, Temporal. You give them too much importance.

    You got some funny ideas about what goes on "over there".

    At school in England I was well taught about American involvment in Europe, and it was rather positive.

    Well with the exception of WW1, I agree. I was taught by English teachers too and the only times the US was mentioned when taking WW1, was when the mental crack the Germans got from the American entrance to the war was discussed, and of course the incompetence of some US commanders that got so many American's killed. Also the highly skilled marksmanship of US soldiers as a whole. But as the over all impact on the fighting and the war, it was always relatively small, which is as I found out later in life, was factually correct. But this is way off topic

    The Americans in question here, were just as stupid as all the other non professional sailors who got themselves kidnapped near the there, and yes 1500 km is peanuts considering there have been hijackings as far as way as Kenya and Oman. One has to be utterly stupid to think that going that way is not a risk.
