    I see that you're British. Well no wonder you're trying to defend the

    Even among the most anti-BBC people in the world, Freerepublic still uses a BBC story every minute of the day. Funny that! :)

    I did not "say the opposite" of what you said. I said the BBC was reporting someone's recollection of Bush's statements, which is not the same as reporting an exact quote on film. People sometimes don't remember exactly what was said and their recollections differ in important ways from what was actually said. The BBC also took whatever statements they reported out of the context of everything else Bush said in this meeting. In so doing, they of course lose some of the meaning of what Bush said to these ministers.

    How do you know what the film says? It hasn't been shown yet!

    1. The BBC have never said Black people are being killed by Black Hawk helicopters in New Orleans.

    2. According to the Press Release the BBC never SAID anything about the President, they REPORTED what OTHERS said about him. Pretty big news if Bush did say those things or else it is big news if the Palestinians are liars.

    If you want to say the opposite then it is not bad manners to say you are a liar. Where is all this American straightforwardness and love of truth?

    I think you are all forgetting one thing:

    It was not the BBC who said it but quotes from Palestinians. If the Palestinians have lied it is major news. If George Bush said these things it is major news. Either way it must be reported, unless some of you guys want to live like Putin's Russia.

    As for the BBC saying Black Hawks were sent to kill Black people in New Orleans - absolute rubbish.

    At least attack the BBC with truth, not with lies.

  • Israeli firm tossed out of UK fair

    So because one company from Israel is thrown out the country - we are all Jew haters? Why were the rest of the Israeli companies allowed in then?

    Does the fact that America treated it's Black population in the south as second-class citizens meam America = Black haters? Or is that too simple-minded?

    You can dress it up any way you like. But if the areas and nations we mentioned, and from which you either live or support, would not exist as they are without Britain.

    You would think the great nations of the USA, Australia, New Zealand and Canada, from which much of what we cherish has came from would be a lasting and proud legacy.

    However, it seems that resentment of the strong from those weaker lasts the generations, in much the same way anti-americanism exists in the very people america protects.

    I would suspect you secretly resent the fact the British ruled HK. I do understand that Point of View, but at least admit it to yourself. The HK residents were either too weak to get rid of British rule or they wanted it.

    Either way it hurts Chinese pride - hence resentment.

    Intelligent response my friend.

    Of-course if I say the response has been poor I am hilariously called a "butt-monkey" :D, but when even Mr Bush says the same ie "the response has been unsatisfactory" there is only silence.

    If you had read my posts you would see that I and the British people are praying for the best for America, but are open-mouthed at how "unsatisfactory" (is that ok?) the response has been.

    If you tell the truth, so is America.

    Some British must still be dreaming of little America as the breakaway colonies and the Empire of which the sun never sets is the centre of the civilization and knows the best. Oh! We British are the best!

    That comment is beneath you - as most of your comments are usually thoughtful. There is a little historical anger there which is typical of the modern world. We are all victims eh?

    I'll just leave you with this thought though - if it wasn't for little ol' Britain; Hong Kong, USA and New Zealand would either not exist or be radically different.

    Although these places are thankfully on their own, who invented their systems and populated the lands? Martians? ;-)

    Maybe you would prefer war-dances, wigwams and Mao?

    As an insider, I have a few remarks to whiney A$$hole Brits like yourself, when you dare to criticize our military and our government based on liberal news.

    1. My ancestors didn't kill enough Brits in our Revolutionary War and the War of 1812. If they had killed more, maybe you wouldn't be around.

    You want to kill British people! mmm...

    2. My Dad, his friends kept the Germans from invading Britain in WWI. Later my uncles and older cousins saved your sorry whining a$$es in WWII with their bodies and blood. My parents, grandparents and non service people paid a lot of money to keep England afloat which we were never paid back during WWII.

    Totally historically laughable. In WW1 Germany could not have invaded Britain. It was a deadlock in Belgium that new American numbers rushed forward the inevitable. In WW2 America joined the war after Germany gave up trying to invade Britain. In fact Germany had less than ten amphibious troop carriers so couldn't have invaded anyway. Read a book.

    3. Our constitution prevents our military from carrying out military activities like you are asking for. That is the responsibility of the La. National Guard. The person who is responsible for ordering riot control and shooting of looters is the governor. The governor is a left wing Politically Correct Governor, and she will not order this response. President Bush can't order that response by our constitution.

    Whoever is at fault is irrelevant, but someone is...

    4. Our constitution came about after we won the revolutionary war. A war which was started by your STD insane King George. Our founding fathers made sure that Brit law which allowed the uncontrolled use of National Military forces in the home country would never be used in America.

    I don't see British troops running about shooting British Citizens, do you? As for "who" won the war, do you not know most of "Americans" at that time though of themselves as "British Americans". It was not that America was a nation under occupation. It was that Britain created a colony of it's own people that thankfully thrived. So without whiny Brits you wouldn't be here! ;)

    Last but not least, many of those so called cowards in the La National Guard have served honorably in tours in Iraq. They weren't cowards then, nor are they cowards now.

    Show me where I called American cowards?

    So..... Where is your precious British Army? Don't recall any British military units volunteering to come here to help?

    Can an American FReeper rebute this hysterical nonsense, and point out it's mile-wide flaws, so I'm not called 'anti-american'!

    Regardless of ideology some people just want to blame others.

    no and Hitler wasn't planning on coming your way. sure.

    Actually he had already given up on Britain after the Luftwaffe lost the 'Battle of Britain' to the RAF and set his sights on the USSR. Then America joined the war.

    maybe I should have mentioned this "cliche"--we Americans don't speak the Queen's English thanks to our brave troops.

    Most Britons don't speak the Queen's English either so we have something in common.

    btw: the men who fought in WWII don't see it as "cliche stuff".

    No the cliche is that America "liberated" Britain. This is quite clearly factually untrue.

    you didn't directly say that the troops were coward~~ you implied it.....right after your proclamation of astonishment, comparison to Indonesia and how British troops would never not go down a street b/c of dangerous men...can you imagine!---you bought the line and perpetuated the lies. you are complicit.

    Any soldier who refused to go stay in an area of America because it was dangerous is a disgrace. Agree? If it never happened there is no problem.

    Well that should have been the attitude from the first. Don't you agree?

    That is all I am saying. Ther always has to be Law and Order or people will die.

    And in case anyone thinks me as a "foreigner" is sitting all happy and smug, well would you if Glasgow, Manchester or Liverpool was in the same situation? No? Neither am I, neither is the UK, and neither is even the lefties.

    This is non-political here, as it should be.

    It is not that Americans are not trying to help Americans. That is a stupid thought beyond words.

    But at the moment there is a paralysis either due to bad leadership, bureaucracy or whatever and people are dying.

    There are American NGO officials on British TV nearly crying because they have supplies waiting to go in but say there is no coordination.

    I can otell you the people of the UK are shocked and horrified at what is happening.

    As usual we will do everything we can to help.

    But questions have to be asked at why the rescue effort is so bad. People are astonished that the USA can send troops to far flung countries in days, and yet in New Orleans it is almost non-existent after five.

    I repeat, Britons are devastated for Americans right now and want to help badly - but at the same time are open-mouthed in amazement at how America could be so slow in it's recovery. That's all I'm saying.

    oh forget will believe what ever line of crap that you are fed. Do you really believe that American troops are cowards? Do you not know history? certainly has made a big difference in your life--you aren't speaking German right now are you?

    Show me where I said American troops are cowards?

    As for the WW2 typical cliche stuff, I don't remember American troops liberating Britain from Germany, do you?

    You expect soldiers to go into an area without the right to shoot at the looters and thugs?

    Does it take five days to give an order? Why so slow - this the point and you should be asking it and not blaming me.

    Your fellow countrymen are needlessly dying - face up to it and make sure it never happens again.
