I think the comments are more to shut up those overly arrogant types (You know, the "'murica, *** yeah!" stereotype). Any offence intended is to those people I had mentioned before, while the more reasonable of folks can have a good chuckle about it

I can't think of a circumstance where a stupid jingoistic person was shut up by a snide comment contrary to their chosen paradigm. Generally speaking, people like that take that stuff on faith, and there is no reasoning with faith. In fact, presenting someone who holds beliefs like that strongly with a contrary argument is more likely to reinforce their opinions because it makes them self defensive. The University of Michigan did a study on this, so it really does nothing for the 'misguided' one is attempting to correct.

No, what it DOES do is make you feel smarter and cooler than someone else on the internet. Hence what I call, 'preening smugness'.

Any conventional war the US enters (e.g. WWII), the US will be pretty effective.
WWII is definitely debatable - the Ruskies I tell ye.

Sure, I'm sure the world would have been a better place with Western Europe under Stalin.

I never did find wars very conventional.


This thread and the religion thread remind me of a "funny" quote by William Thomas Cummings.

"There are no atheists in the foxholes."

Heh, I've got a saying of my own for that.

'Two hands on a rifle are better than two clasped in prayer.'  ;)

Iscarot, I am sorry if I offended you by posting this but you do seem to be the one that is taking this the wrong way, in the context of the video it is fine, where two teams, one from america one from the UK are fighting in a game the first comment was offering support in a cocky way, so the others just showed those posts to be funny (later ones are trolls, after the screenshot though), just in future don't take things so seriously....

I'm not offended. I think the whole thing is stupid. I think the person who posted the initial comment was stupid. I think the people who thought they could one up him afterwards was stupid. I think the reposting of the thread here was also stupid, and now I'm pretty sure I'm being dumber by trying to break down the reasons why to people that probably don't care. But who am I if not a dumb Marine on the internet.

That's a little nihilistic. And the implication is false. Just because the internet is stupid doesn't mean you, this forum, or the people you choose to associate with have to be.
