in response to reader comment: AMERICANS

first, it was the egyptians, they grew, they conquered, they got lazy, they got smoked. then it was the persians, they conquered, they got lazy and they too got smoked. the greeks, the romans, the germans, the brits and next: America. everyone gets a turn to sit on the throne, so shut up and be nice.

come on, i love europe. except for france, and even then, that's only because they backstabbed us. if they were to get rid of chirac, and perhaps grow some guts, i might like them. but you know what? if the eifel tower were to get bombed and thousands were to die in a terrorist attack, i would never, ever say such a heinous thing as: "everyday i grow more and more supportive of the terrorists who attacked you" you just don't wish that on anyone.

on another note, i love Britain, i think we all did an unbelievable job in both world wars (especially the brits and the battle of britain). even the frenchies did good with the underground resistance. it was really saddening to see the attacks on britain and spain in the recent years.

while i am very patriotic and love my country, (i live in Seattle Washington by the way) i admit that in the past we have made plenty of mistakes, what with the native americans, vietnam and such and such. but come on, we all make mistakes.

in short, i think we all need to take a chill pill, help each other out a bit more and maybe dispense with a bit of the ego here and there. before we are europeans, americans, republicans, democrats, white, black, we are humans. come on guys, stop bashing me and my country. i love europe, i love america...
