    Why is that offensive? You hold a grudge over WWI?

    Nah, the EU is not a German dream.

    But the Fance-Germany contingent is pretty strong in Europe.

    "It's in their blood to kick ass and take names." is racist bull****, I find it amusingly ignorant rather than offensive.

    Who mentioned WW1, one of your pet topics, are you hang up about it? lol

    They're living in the 'Fourth Reich' now. It is my belief though that the next Reich will see the foes of Germany once again tremble at their feet. Germany and those who ally with her will see the weak-minded fools and enemies of Freedom and Righteousness fall before the German Army's mighty boot.

    The Fifth Reich Will Get It Right.

    Kali said it was offensive, I was assuming the reference was to the Flag, the imperial flag of Germany, used in WWI. Hence the reference to WWI.

    Ok, having read some more of your comments I realise this is not to be taken literally.

    I think you are well aware of the references you have made with the "it's in their blood" remark, it's an aquired sense of humour you indulge in.

    I could not be more serious business about this.

    Germanic Barbarian Tribes, the Holy Roman Empire, The German Empire (1871 to 1919), Nazi Germany, and continuing with a tradition excellent military weapons and training, Germans are a warlike people with ass-kicking in their very nature. With the rise of "Peace" and "Getting Along" though there has been a large cutback in the amount of ass Germans can kick. Especially because that Austrian asshole ruined it for everyone...

    That's just racial/national prejudice, dude. It's not "nice".

    Ever been to Germany?
