in response to reader comment: GET OVER YOURSELF

You're talking about art, music and so on. It's a matter of taste it's not something to be argued about. Some people like Pop-Music, Other Heavy Metal, the next one's Classical. It's not a godamn fact that Punk Rock sucks and Rap Rules.

So it was with the rest of the world i live in Eastern Europe, Lithuania and we were being invaded by the Teutonic Order because we were Pagan. And why do you think that only Britain was responsible for Native American Deaths, your own army did shed some blood of some native Americans. Don't Overate your role in the world, USSR Soldiers died for what they Believe atleast some of them and look at their losses, what about France in their Revolution war's so that that they could get a better life, Finland they survived a massive USSR Assault and they won even they had less soldiers, equipment and so on, Baltic Countries fighting for their own freedom.

People in Italy did start the Rennaisance and without it the world would still be in the Dark Ages. Why do you only say that American Soldiers died for the fight for freedom. It's like only America Cared even they joined WW2 ( It's not about WW2 but still you are digging at the past ) at the end of it. British, Finland, French, Norway, Dane, Latvian, Lithuanian, Eastonian, Romunian, Australian, Russian, USA and a lot of other's Nation soldiers died in the name of what they believe ( Well most there fought for freedom ).

Don't go into the past because the US past isn't very bright. Joining the WW2 only when Pearl Harbor was attacked ( And it wasn't the president's fault ) even though they heard, seen what was happening to the world, and your people simply choose to ignore it until their turn came, dropping a nuke on a Japanese City even though there were inoccent people there, and look at the present anyone that doesn't like America can't build a weapon of Mass Destruction if you promote peace and tolerence and so on why are you hiding a damn knife behind your back. The Past is the past you can't change it. And you're telling people to stop being proud of who they are. At some point or another the US will promote their Freedom, their Liberty, and their Justice till it's in it's own interests like with the rest of the world.
