British Say- Not On Our Troops
    #808481 - 08/10/02 08:58 AM (19 years, 1 month ago)

British armoured infantry are becoming very worried about the possbility of war with America:
"Last time we where there the Americans killed a lot of our troops" said fusilier Williams. He was refering of course, to the incident in which an Ameican A-10 killed 10 British Fusiliers and then refused to apologise.

In the Korean War, the Ameican Air-Force killed dozens of Royal Marines after they had just captured a vital strong point commanding the Inchon landings.

The possibility of having the "Ameican Luftwaffe" in any war is really frightening., according to seageant major Bob: " Yanks are cunts who kill any cunt what moves on the ground and that means me an' you"

"Fucking Yanks should just piss off" said another fusilier yesterday.

Tempers ran high as lance-corporal Bloggs remebred the incedent- " Yanks should go and fuck thier mothers, rather than killing their allys and innocent afghans who are trying to get married"

Lance-corporal Bloggs is 26.

Any country fighting along side us has ALOT to be worried about.

And where did you come across this little gem of "information"?

How do you come up with this crap. Let's see some proof.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

War/Campaign Percent Casualties (U.S. Military only)*
World War II 21%
Korea 18%
Vietnam 39%
Persian Gulf 49%
Seeing as those percentages are all less than 51%, your claim is bogus. What a surprise.

Oops, forgot the link....

Don't you get tired of beating the same old anti America drum?

the thing that bothers me though, is that any old crackpot can make up any old crap about what's going on in the UK, and it's accepted by most people, cos they don't know any better.
Yeah, the UK is awash with rapists and child-molesters and is the most dangerous country in the western world, since handguns were banned....
for example.

Yah, like 49% is soo much better...

Did you notice that the percent gradualy raises from war to war? If you recreuted for the military would your best slogan be, "Hey at least if you get shot it will propably be by a friend"?

Also those are "friendly fire figures" Lets not forget the Many that die due to industrial accidents and plane crashes on training missions. These deaths are not concitered "friendly fire" they are just "accidental deaths".

OOh and that website you link to says UN figures for the Gulf war Friendly Fire casualties are 51%.

And I only said "wars durring my life time"

And NO Ill never get tired of bashing the American War Machine and its brutal foreign policy.

Yes, US casulties, caused by friendly fire. The web site did NOT say caused by US friendly fire, they could have been killed by our allies. Factor in that the total US deaths are as follows:
"During the Gulf Campaign (1990-91) approximately 367 Americans lost their lives. Of those deads, approximately 165 American casualties, or 45% (official Dept of Defense estimate), were due to "friendly fire". Of all Allied deaths during the Gulf campaign approximately 51% (UN estimate) were due to friendly fire."
While even a single friendly fire death is too much, shit happens in combat.

And Gabba, I didn't say that 49% was better, just that you were and shall remain.... full of shit.
And in response to your statement "Any country fighting along side us has ALOT to be worried about. ", That's why everyone calls on us when the shit hits the fan. They must be really worried.

everyone??? It seems to me that the U.S. is doing more asking than anyone else lately...do the words "if you're not with us you're against us" mean anything to you?

When was the last time a country actually ASKED for the U.S. to step in and help their military? (And if it wasn't in the best interest of the U.S. to do so?)

the world markets depend on the states soooo much. we have a bad day and you have a pretty good idea what will happen elsewhere. and it's an interest to most countries (cept ahabs) since there is oil involved.

....we should be bugging the french.....they owe us for that WWII thing AND vietnam. those yellow backstabbing bastards!

>>>When was the last time a country actually ASKED for the U.S. to step in and help their military?

we give $5 billion (greenbacks not canadian) to israel every year just for the fun of it (of course they are one of if not thee biggest lobbist group and contributors in america)

egypt gets $2 billion for NOTHING! just a humanitian issue.

we fund a large majority of NATO and UN operations (and they want US to pay dues as well????)

i had to edit because i forgot about how we train Georgian soldiers to help them out (2001) and we used to help out some of the south american gov't military, but realized they're ALL fucked up. plus we just bailed out some country just the other day...i don't remember the name but it was a $2 billion loan.

damn america sounds like a pimp! hehehehe

I'm not referring to monetary aid, because Canada (as well as all developed nations) contribute as well. I'm referring to some country actually ASKING for the U.S. to invade.

Um. Try checking some news sources from outside the US. I know the Canadian incident is real. It's been all over the news here for months. It's a big deal up here.

What, you think the US should be exempt from paying UN dues?

Jesus.

In 1998 the UN ratified the Convention on the Rights of the Child. Only two countries refused to sign, Somalia and the US.

You don't fund a "large majority" of NATO and UN operations. That's complete bullshit. You "provide a lot of funding", perhaps. Where the fuck do you come up with statements like that? Are you brain damaged?

The US wasn't the only country that liberated France in WW2. What an ignorant, and arrogant thing to think. You assholes didn't even bother to get involved until the Japanese attacked you.

Nobody owes you shit for Vietnam. It was a completely idiotic idea to get involved in the first place, and secondly you got you asses handed to you on a platter.

In reply to:

It's about oil...not because the U.S. cares about Isreal

In reply to:

...Actually Canada was already involved in the war LONG before the U.S. decided to join it. (for at least 2 years I believe)

>>>What, you think the US should be exempt from paying UN dues?
yeah, we pay for everything else. why else do we refuse to pay while no one makes a huge stink about it?

>>>You "provide a lot of funding", perhaps
significantly more than ANYONE else. as an added bonus i'll mention our taxes are at least half as much as any other country.

>>>Convention on the Rights of the Child
soundbite, i'd have to read it through and see what the gov't said. there is a reason for everything.

>>>The US wasn't the only country that liberated France in WW2
i know, i mentioned canada if you read the whole thing. they're the arrogant bastards. at least the US has something to back its viewed arrogance. if certain european countries were more "arrogant" WWII probably wouldn't have got as bad.

>>>>You assholes didn't even bother to get involved until the Japanese attacked you.
yer damned if you do and damned if you don't. we tried not to be "arrogant" and go around attacking other countries. we've learned since. isn't saddam just like hitler without a good military backing?

>>>Nobody owes you shit for Vietnam
someone asked who we helped out militarily. i answered. and the vietnamese were going to give up in a couple weeks if we kept carpet bombing them. they got lucky!!!! they didn't fair so well either!

Well, Canada isn't the only one.

"they're the arrogant bastards. at least the US has something to back its viewed arrogance."

Canada was the only country involved in d-day that managed to reach every goal they had set.

I'm not saying you're arrogant for attacking people. I'm saying you're arrogant for claiming you single handedly won WW2.

The US is not a special country. It doesn't deserve special treatment, and it doesn't deserve extra power.

"i'll mention our taxes are at least half as much as any other country."

Yeah, that's why half of the americans that file for bankruptcy do so due to medical expenses. It's also why all your public schools are letting illiterate kids graduate.

ummm...hes tried to take over other countries, but failed. and he still has ambition to. the guys preoccupied with building weapons instead of feeding his people. at least hitler did things for germany like the autobaun
also he gases his own countrymen in masses.

given the chance this guy would do worse than hitler.

most people don't go bankrupt and i'd rather control my money rather than the gov't. its part of the freedom. besides...those people are idiots who don't plan well. if your job doesn't have a benefits plan yer getting either ripped off or being payed extra to compensate you to get your own plan.

>>>>The US is not a special country
maybe not special, but different. the world wil NEVER EVER be without a superpower. when (yes when...it's bound to happen eventually) america crashes there will be someone else to take over. you just better hope it's not china. i'll admit it's quite selfish, but it provides security and stability. it's part of the "new world order". if i was canadian i'd want canada to have the bullying power the US has. it's not about fairness....it's all about survival. humans are animals and we'll protect our territory and interests to the deth.
thats jus the way it is.

>>>It's also why all your public schools are letting illiterate kids graduate
i don't think it's an epidemic, that's pretty old stuff....like 20 yrs ago. i know it still happens but its quite rare. besides...that's the parents/kids fault. schools can only do so much. i bet that illiterate kid had fellow students who did well.

(Vataloco this isn't directed towards you. I just needed a reply button.)

So how about you all pull your dicks back in your pants and realize you're no different from each other. The US is, right now, the most successful country in the world. That doesn't mean they're the best. This friendly fire thing is ridiculous. They have, by far, the best military in the world. All countries want the same thing. But since the US is successful, they are portrayed as more evil than other countries (country=government). SOME Americans have a very false view of themselves as superior. But it's no worse than the extreme anti-american view from some of the citizens (obviously not governments) of her allies. Neither one has any good reason to support their view, other than selfishness. Bankruptcy due to medical expenses? That's not even close to a lot of people. In the time I've spent living in the US I've never met anyone who declared bankruptcy, let alone due to medical expenses. The US school system is bad? Then why is the country so damn successful, and why do tons of foreign students go there to study?

When the US waits to help a country, as in WWII, they're are deemed "selfish" by the country in trouble. But when a different ally is in trouble (Kuwait), and the US acts, they are portrayed as power-hungry. So no matter which they choose, they will be scorned. That's just the way it goes.

It's not black and white. One country isn't good and the rest evil. But making up shit to make someone else look bad is just as pathetic as pretending you're superior.

If you measure success through military might, then yes, I would agree with you.

Best equipped?...yes...best trained?...not by a long shot.

Most other countries don't declare false wars on "terrorism" to disguise the fact it's a play for oil.

Fair enough...

Actually medical expenses is the number 1 cause of bankruptcy in the U.S.

Because they go to study in the Universities..not the High Schools where the illiteracy is taking place.

and money.

>>>best trained?...not by a long shot
thats too hard to declare either way. you'd only have an educated guess if you were in the know.

>>Most other countries don't declare false wars on "terrorism" to disguise the fact it's a play for oil.

i don't think the afghans think it's false....nor does that abu guy in the philipeans. actually...hes dead now! i forgot to mention them earlier in country's we've helped. i'd also call that a success.

>>>Actually medical expenses is the number 1 cause of bankruptcy in the U.S.
those are old people who have nothing to lose and everything to gain by doing so. all real jobs pay for your health care. bankruptcy is pretty rare. especially now that it's been curbed big time with so many people abusing it. yes...i've known many people who would purposely buy everything they could then declare bankruptcy.

it's better than the gov't takin 70% of all the money you make and then providing terrible health care. up to 2 months to see the doctor? i can spend $20 and see a doctor within a few hours! you make more money the american way.

>>>Because they go to study in the Universities..not the High Schools where the illiteracy is taking place

thats propaganda our politicians use to get elected. actually....that whole reading thing is about 20 yrs old and it only applied to 9 and 10 yr old kids who have psych problems. if 1 out of 10,000 kids can't read does that indicate its the school's fault? obiously not since 9,999 other kids did ok!

...and i thought southerners were stereotypical.....

that was a good like!

anyways...don't whine...it's the survival of the fittest.... it's the only way.

I do know, I have participated in war games against the U.S....they lost...often...even with better equipment. But Isreal probably has the best trained Military in the world overall.

Do you really think most Afghans even have a clue as to why they are getting bombed at wedding parties?..that's probably help they can do without.

Did you know that 999 out of every 1000 people make up statistics off the top of their head with no supporting evidence?

I'm always shocked that my fellow americans actually believe we are "free". That is THE best use of propaganda in history.

Another piece of propaganda is "Saddam gassed his own people." NO, he didn't. He gassed the Kurds. No one cares about the Kurds for some reason. Iraq is not, by far, the only country to kill them(say hello to our turkish allies/friends as an ex.).
