I'm not american...
I never said americans were better than anyone else...
broswerjoe said that...
as I said, I wasn't trying to start a fight, it's just that over patriotic I'm better than you are just cause I live here is complete crap.
I'm not going to say I'm any better than anyone else simply because I live in Britain, nor anyone else is worse, or worth less than me just cause they don't...
and I don't see why any american should either...
I support troops in as far as I don't want them to be killed, I have some friends who are in the army... one who will be going to Basra just before christmas, I don't want him to die, I've known him snice I was a young kid, (primary school age).
but it's not like I'll be sending him packages of food or new boots either.
I'm not quite sure that I understand your idea of suporting the troups?
do you mean morally with support like go get em, and parads in their honour and stuff, or physically supporting them by sendnig them stuff?
as far as I was aware most mental problems, come from the lack of experiance, *most* soldiers from countries have seen warfare before, and are reasonably old, but (as far as I'm aware) a lot of the US army are noobs to armed combat and quite young, and there is nothing quite like standing in rivers of blood to really send you on a bit of a head f***, especialyl when all told you should really still be in school.
