Speaking of which, how come the world’s sole superpower is only giving 3 millions? Japan and Britain are giving out six times as much.
Again, because this post was pretty funny. How can you ask why the US hasn’t given more aid, in a thread about Myanmar’s thugs snatching up…aid. And, why would you even try to turn the subject of this thread into the US? Can’t we discuss the problems with getting aid to where it is actually needs to go? There is an awful lot of people suffering over there, after all. And thugs seemingly pleased to allow it. So, can you take a break, just this once, and hijack some other thread into an anti-US rant, some other time?
Is there anything to discuss? They want absolute control over the distribution of aid. The US did the same during Katrina. People were suffering in New-Orleans while the Feds were holding up foreign aid. I remember tons of European foods left to rot on airfields, and cargo planes stalled waiting for approval. I distinctly remember it because the Swedish Rescue Services Agency was very pissed at the US for not allowing them to deliver the aid packages.
But I don’t suppose it made headlines in the US…
You could’ve made a much briefer response.
“Yes, I intend to hijack this thread, making it another anti US thread. No, I won’t admit how silly it was to criticize what the US has given in aid, in a thread about such aid being siezed by thugs.”
I didn’t criticize. I asked a question. The aid seemed disproportionate to me. Then you jumped in, completely ignoring my question, and derailed the thread into something utterly different.
The OP’s questions were not worth addressing in my opinion. We all know what “the flying fuck” is wrong with Myanmar. The country is ruled by one of the strictest military juntas around. This has never been up for debate.
So go ahead. Let’s hear what insights will follow an OP whose thesis is the lack of a hell hot enough for that particular group.[/quote]
You are so full of shit. If the aid seems dispropotionate to you so what? You don’t live here, we don’t live and work to please you. You’re the one that sent the thread spinning off on your anti-US bullshit tangent.
If the OP’s questions were not worth addressing then fuck off and don’t address them. How hard is that? Love your description of these assholes too. Oooooh their “strict”. Maybe there just “morally challenged”. Take that shit elsewhere.
The third paragraph you try and brush everyone off by trying to set some bullshit parameter that now “defines” the context of the argument, while conveniently “elevating” you above it all and attempting to focus the attention away from the main point. Which at this point in time has once again been hijacked away from the topic and onto, “Lixy, how much of a douchebag can I be.” Are you a lawyer cause your discourse style smells like typical lawyer tactical dumbassery.
Why don’t you just create a little batch file that will cut and paste “America Sucks” into every 5th post in every thread and find another hobby.
