Matt, to think that every other country wants to be like usa well far from the truth mate.
You will find a whole bunch of europeans disgust america for starters. Most of my friends from holland, germany, belgium, denmark etc, They despise you guys.
Me personally, i love coming over there, and love the americans in general, but hey were in the supposed 51st state here. But i am far from jealous of the US or the lifestyle. I wouldnt swap it for many alternative ways of life. Including my own here in sunny London
and all this while blair is firmly giving g bush one in the ass! Or is it the other way round
Oh and as for the soldiers, they are fucking heroes and should get nothing but the upmost respect, not the way i have seen some of them spoken to on here.
