You can call it a troll if you want, but I'm completely serious. Almost every post in this thread makes me want to slam my head into a brick wall. For some reason I had to say something. I'm just going to stay out of this one now.


What...? Where did you get the implication I was calling you a troll? I was just stating the internet is a domain for trolls, faggotry, and other shit.

Nonetheless, I'll reply with seriousness. If something was a considered an offensive joke, it being a joke does not make it any less offensive.

Funny that 'Muricans still want revenge for Pearl Harbor.


Pearl Harbor Death Toll: About 2,400 (54 were civilians)

Bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki Death Toll: 240,000 (Almost entirely civilians)

Well, both sides did things that are horrible in that war. One side used their citizens turned soldiers as guided missiles in a plane while the other one just answered by bombing two cities. I'm glad that its in the past and most the people discussing this probably don't even have any association with either event. I don't even know who said this comment, but i imagine they will be punished by NBC if it was on their network. All countries get a little tense during these games but i wish that all we had to worry about every day was who is going to win a game instead of when are my loved ones going to be taken away from me. Be glad to have what you have and stop bitching about stuff that happened longer than probably anyone on these forms have been alive. I don't have anything personal against japan i love them for giving me anime to watch, but I'm also proud to be an American because not all of us live for revenge but believe in standing up for ourselves.

Um, there's a thin line between a joke and being just plain offensive.

Everything is for Pearl Harbor. The US already dropped two A-bombs on Japan and a lot of these dumb hyper-patriotic Americans still forget that and continue hating Japanese people. So ignorant.

US
-Casualties in the war (won)
-Casualties at Pearl Harbor (a few thousand?)

Japan
-Casualties in the war (lost)
-Casualties at Hiroshima and Nagasaki (a few hundred thousand?)

Not looking at anything else (Japan still gets the short end of the stick for most of it), this is already more than enough 'revenge.' You don't see people in Texas shooting Mexicans because of the Alamo. These battles weren't even fought by the people who are being stupid pricks today. They aren't taking revenge on anything, they're just being ridiculously dumb. They have nowhere else to channel their idiocy.

Whoever said that is an insensitive idiot. We're at peace, there's no vengeance to get, and even if there was, a game isn't a triumph over the bombing... -_- Honestly, we bombed them right back and did far more damage, and the war ended a LOOOOOONG time ago...

yeah.. despite some of the dim-witted analogies made here, it's disheartening that an olympic victory could be misconstrued as revenge.
