Whats wrong with the Yanks?

#1
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.

I havent really had to much to do with Americans, ive never been and never worked along side any however the ones I have met... 10 at most have all been nice enough people all be it childish and attention seeking.

Where I think they fall down as a people is on mass.... they are a trigger happy bunch who have in my opinion been brainwashed with that pledge thing they do at schools to believe that they as americans are far superior in every way to anyone else. In a nut shell I think there is alot wrong with them and if I was in Bliar's shoes id do as much as possible to distance our country from them politically!

all generalisations are false ...

erm ...

big place, loads of people - impossible to judge

although distant memories of cases of Bud lashed onto the back of M60's driven by pissed up drivers make it tempting

Why do they bother using a steralised Hypo for a lethal injection to a murderer?

It's much more cruel that way. Really points up the fact that this isn't just an influenza vaccine. It's a nice touch. I rather like it.

Having lived in the United States, for 10 years, I have found them to be all sorts.
As a Nation are insular in outlook and experience, mind you it is a big enough place that it is not all seen in a week end. They also have differing social and cultural norms (they are NOT Brit's with a "funny" accent). Hence they will top murderers.
As to treating people like "aliens", well that is part of a "well developed national self opinion" of their nationality. Of course no Englishman has ever been accused of THAT fault!

If there is a "fault" with Americans, it could PERHAPS be said to be in relation to their definition of "personal space". It is my experience that the idea that being "too noisy" and that this might be a "nuisance" to those around you, is less ingrained with Americans.

That aside, I find them polite on a casual basis (but that is a Culural thing), as well as to be almost without exception complimentary of Brit's. So perhaps THAT is something certain parties could try to work on, in their case?

Having spent ages working in, vacationing in, and serving with ... rock on, USA. You have your faults, but you're a great bunch of guys. Sorry about some of your Govt systems [and personalities], but on balance ... grrrreat.

Winstanley ... read ARRSE threads and discover how many Brits aren't right in the head. poor post, m'thinks.

I have a lot of American family on both sides. You get a bad impression from the media here that all septics are loud, stupid, gun totin' bunch of pricks and though there are lots of people like that. There are lots of places like in parts of Rural Pennsylvania where people leave theire cars and doors unlocked to go on holiday because nothing happens there.

There is the 'loud' american but there are Americans who are very polite and will call you 'Sir' or 'Ma'am'


Good things about America, property prices are cheap. You can pick up a good 3 bedroom home for 18000 pounds whicj is good because the mortage is a pain in the arse of a debt. Food is cheap, lots of sports facilities and 24 gyms, no-one gets ripped off in America if you are a consumer because everything is geared to the customer.

Also whatever you like, you like the mountains? its there? you like the beach? its there, you like the city? it's there. It's impossible to hate america because there will be something you will like about it.

Bad things are you need to pay insurance for almost everything, if you want your kids to go to Uni get that insurance in as soon as they are born, you can get free medical care but if you have bought your house they are having it. Law Enforcement, you think our plod are cnuts. They are bigger cnuts, just check out todays Daily Mail and what they did to a
British professor for jaywalking.

And in the U.S they still tend to like the British, even if you speak like Ashley off Coronation St (ahem) you will still be treated like Price Charles!
:D

Winstanley:

What is your beef? Did you visit my Country and get arrested? The TSA people at airports, etc. treat everybody like shitte! Most are people who can't find better employment for higher wages, etc.

From the sound of it, I doubt that you have ever served around American military people.

As a matter of fact I doubt that you have interacted with very many Americans at all. I suspect you are a troll, trying to drum up anti-American crap!

I am currently living in the US and loving every bit of it. Yes, cross the line and you get a proper punishment - shackled, fined, jailed, shot whatever but what's wrong with that? Some council estates in UK could do well to adopt a similar approach. I live at a standard far above what I could ever afford in the UK, the countryside is awesome (even in the Brit sense of the word) and I don't worry about locking my car or house when I go out. True there are some 'dodgy bits' (bits of DC and NYC etc) but is Bristol St Paul's or Moss Side any better? Americans are NOT Brits with bad accents and bad colonial habits. They are a different country with different customs and, yes, a different language. The majority of people around me are descended from Dutch or Germans not Brits - why don't you slag off them for being strict at airportsor strange habits etc?

Politics aside (Sorry Yanks but it has to be said!) there are as many pros and cons for the Yanks as there are for Brits

Appologise if I sound like I have gone Native, I haven't, but if you join the Army to travel you had better learn to understand that other people do things differently and not necessarily wrongly.
