    But, in all seriousness, France and Britain (along with the US, China and Russia) are two of the five most powerful nations on Earth, and are peerless outside of the Security Council (which makes up the Bismarckian Great Powers of today), so, yeah, I'd say Britain and France are pretty "great".
    Neither Perfidious Albion nor Petit Francais deserve to be on the UN Security Council. India and Japan should replace the Euros.

    Right, so, am I allowed to call this racist? Or is that also against the code of conduct?

    Is Governor Schwarzenegger any less of an American than President Obama?
    Yes... he is Austrain.

    Is Austrain a race? No. So call it racist and report it. As a Californian, I don't think much of the stupid ****ing Austrian either...

    I don't know why I continue to feed this troll, but, do you have any good reason, besides your abject and childish hatred of all things European?

    Er... Austrian certainly is a race. It's a sub-race of the Germanic peoples.

    Austrian is an ethnicity or nationality, not a race. Races are Caucasion, Negroid, Mongoloid and one or two others...

    You're arguing semantics, here. If Austrian is an ethnicity, and Albert makes anti-Austrian statements, he is still being racist.

    Besides, he's quite racist to Europeans at large, anyway.

    Sure, I guess. I don't really care why he is doing whatever... it just isn't racist. It might very well be rude and offensive, but that is on him. He might be the first anti-European that I have seen here, but that hardly balances the many anti-Americans here at DP.

    Only if they've been a citizen for 25 years or more.
