    Saddam's lawyer

    I recently found this:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-NI0VPQhptU

    It is quite an interesting and at times funny interview. But is there perhaps a sense of truth in the mens words(for example about the southern mass graves) ? Im not sure, i tend to believe there isnt, though you never know what the US lies about nowadays What do you guys think ?

    Please stop trying to inanely turn everything that you find newsworthy into something anti-American. It makes you look like a fantical idiot.

    Bit harsh, Everyone is allowed there freedom of speech and I'd think that Drakkie, an Oldie and pretty respected member of all would not have this sort of response? Interesting Link btw, I'm really not sure what to think...

    No, it wasn't harsh. It was completely called for. His blatant anti-Americanism is frustrating.

    Have you not noticed that almost everything he has posted lately is anti-US oriented material?

    I don't believe 99% of what you hear about the Iraq war from US government information, but I also don't believe this guy one little bit.

    I started reading Drakkie's opening post to this thread and was waiting for something like "but we all know how America this and that..". Yep, I was right. FFS Drakkie, I'm not a fan of my nation's wartime agenda, but, c'mon!

    This is an interesting thread.

    I do find it quite curious that the only people so-far moved to express their irritation at the "anti-Americanism" appear to be from the North American continent...

    I'm sure you'd be just as vocal if he were being anti-Iclandic too, though. Really.

    Anyway - the entire world hates America - didn't you know?

    And despite all of the good things that come from your country, people are more inclined to remember that time you offended their religion/race by with some vile injustice, than all those excellent episodes of Friends, or "coca-cola"*.

    A man can only take so many snide comments about clogs and windmills, and ignorance of his above-average stature before he goes on the offensive!

    Seeing as how most of the negative opinion of the USA is caused by idiots from your country - FDR, Bush, Tom Cruise, Britney Spears, Lindsay England - you get the picture, why not do something about them, rather than complaining about idiots from other countries who were complaining about your idiots in the first place?

    * Although, I count both of those as a "vile injustice" - which just goes to show that you can't win.
    Thanks for all the fish

    Most people, no matter how much they disagree with the administration in power, will not take kindly to seemingly blind disdain for the nation from which they hail. Would you be suprised if a member made anti-semetic remarks and the most offended people were Jewish?

    I have to say Matt has pretty much covered why this is so irritating, so I won't bother to repeat him. I will readily agree that America has produced her fair share of morons, but any country as populous as the US would-why judge all of us and the country we call home based on a few idiots and some absolutely horrible mistakes.

    Only because "most people" are incomprehensibly moronic.

    What does it matter to you if someone doesn't like your country? Do government agents come to your house and beat you every time a foreign national complains about foreign policy?

    Quick! Defend the honour of the millions of people you don't know against the other millions of people you don't know but who are the other side of an arbitrarily-devised, imaginary-line!

    The earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that in glory and in triumph they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot. Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of the dot on scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner of the dot. How frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds. Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the universe, are challenged by this point of pale light. Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity -- in all this vastness -- there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves. It is up to us. It's been said that astronomy is a humbling, and I might add, a character-building experience. To my mind, there is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly and compassionately with one another and to preserve and cherish that pale blue dot, the only home we've ever known.

    I think you missed the "blind disdain" part of his statement. Morons would not have a problem with blind disdain. Intelligent, logical and fair people would have a problem with blind disdain regardless of what subject said blind disdain happens to be directed.
