What's wrong with the Yanks? Those who have served alongside them know they are not quite right in the head. Some of them are downright scary. But you don't need to be a soldier to realise this. Have you been to the States? All those aggressive, rude security people at JFK who treat you like dirt, just cos you're an 'alien'. Also, the Yanks enjoy killing people - not just Iraqis and Somalis - but also their own. They like gassing prisoners, electrocuting prisoners, and also injecting them with lethal substances. To really rub it in, they keep them on death row for ten years or so to make them sweat. When the Yankie police arrest people, even placid people for relatively minor offences, they shackle them and march them through the streets. Sadistic or what? They also like dressing up their prisoners in bright orange clothes (so everybody can see them) and put them to work on chain gangs. What has really got my goat is the treatment of that Brit professor for crossing the road at the wrong place. He was violently attacked by 5 Georgia cops and treated as though he was the Boston strangler. Moral of the story - stay away from the Yanks. They are psychos! PS - if Tony Bliar has followed this advice, we would all better for it, and a hundred or so dead British soldiers would be alive today.
