Well, as long as they're of the same genus, there's nothing else here to debate about.

I'm an American and I've lost faith in our government. It's so corrupted and it's being a hypocrite (in my opinion), I just wish that the presidential elections end soon and a better president comes along. And no more war pls, we're wasting to much money on conventional warfare.

Listen, the media is complete nonsence, i'm sure many british people admire the way americans live, and the same for many americans, i mean c'mon.. we even speak the same language for god sake, the media will always be the media, don't listen to a word they give out unless it sounds good enough to believe.

Most of Europe doesn't see America as great. I think Obama would help improve relations with Europe that Bush agitated better than McCain.

I don't like the government of US handling problems in US and Middle East. I do see a lot of thread that pretty much insult America, but is it an insult the all the peoples of America? I don't understand why we need to listen to other nations comment on us, basically US is the most hated for what it did. Invading, Look for oil, being bossy ~ Government and the President. Still this forum is better then most site such as Youtube, commentor saying "USA heck yea!!" and "We will bomb USA" These are the worst comment I hate in Youtube.

In my opinion/thought (not a statement/information so don't believed it) ~ President Bush say United Kingdom is the closest allied to United State. Even though there 5 comment from Briton saying USA is bad, thats 5 comment out of 60,776,238. I read somewhere that USA has about 25-30% positive view from around the world and increasing (Might Decreased due to Georgia-Russia conflict). I think that even though some of us don't like each other we still back each other if there a war problems.

Poll is inaccurate, its their guess/prediction/thought and most of them have never went to North America.

The problem my American friends is that you are the biggest power in the world (for a few more years until China gets ahead anyway) and so your actions affect EVERYBODY. You start a war for your own personal gain, we inevitably get dragged into it thanks to international organisations like NATO. (Iraq) Your economy goes down, you take all the other economies with you (like right now) Therefore who you guys vote for matters to us- we need the best choice not only for America but so that there is a strong leader to maintain international stability- not simply selfish American interests.

And then you guys went and voted bush in, not only once but frickin TWICE.

And how can any of you even think of voting for McCain as his successor, he is after all quite clearly a warmonger- something we REALLY don't need with the current situation with Russia as he is very likely to escalate tensions and put us on the road to WW3 and nuclear armageddon. And don't even get me started on his choice in Vice President. (who please remember will automatically become president if McCain dies mid term- and seeing as he is in his 70's that is a very real possibility)

You could change a lot of British perceptions simply by voting for Obama- who is a man with brains and some genuine political skill- as he has proven by rising to the top in a still shockingly anti-black America. If he was a dumbass it would have been impossible. It also helps that he is a man who seems to care what negative impacts America has on the rest of the world world and even more impressively he actually UNDERSTANDS how the world works and of America's importance to the international order.

1) yeh we gained so fucking much from the war
get a clue......
the E.U countries wont do shit............
someone had to fight Radical Islam and we are it....

2) China won't do things any better...
all its been good for recently is deporting Tibetans off their own lands

and 3) how does British perceptions matter to anyone?

IF IRAN make a bomb who would have to go to war to set them straight??
certainly not britain even if it agrees that Iran having the bomb would be bad...
so the U.S would be forced to fight !

and even after that we'd be portrayed as the bad guys somehow

*Sigh Yes, sure, whatever, You can look down at america, but I wonder who keeps the balance of power in this world *HINT HINT HINT AMERICA . You ppl who don' t like america shouldn't say a word b/c america is the only reason you can eat peacful and continue ur normal lives America is forced to take up the slack that other nations won't take up *Example: WORLD PEACE, I'm pretty sure peace just happens; NOT! It is because of America's values and beliefs of equality, justice, etc, the world has a country that helps keep totalitarian governments in check. Yes, there are some bad points to america, but you shouldn't just say AMERICA IS BAD, HORRIBLE BLAH BLAH, W.E!! You have to exprience it 1st b4 you say anything bad.....

Here's a question for you...

What if America was not there in WWII?

im glad some one shares similarities in my comment... ya America is forced to take up the badge as officer b/c america is the only county able with the power and good morality to do good for the world (even if some countries dont see that) I'd like to see some other country do what america did... which would be none unless you can give me a name of a country that could do what american did in the past... WWI, WWII, fight radical islam, Keep aggresive governments in check (Iran, Korea, Cuba Etc)

I mean China is a pretty big country, although its pretty inactive in keeping world peace not to mention its human rights records <-------LOL

Russia isnt any better, its pretty much the same as China, India it not even close to being totally developed but there progressing, but not organized enough to do anything atm, i dont even have to say anything about the E.U. The total population of the e.u. probably doesnt even come near the total poplulation of North America, do they even do anything that doesnt even concern them

not to mention all these ethnic / religious conflicts
were partially due to the European Powers "making up border" during colonialism
without taking into considering who were in these countries that they just made

Example blame the British on creating Iraq
thanks for putting the Shia's and Sunni's together in the borders you drew for Iraq ..... its really helped us a lot
