    Thats not true at all. If they are being occupied like Palestine is by the Israeli Zionist bastards, they can fight til they collapse and not get the desired outcome. Fate dealt alot of places a 2 or a 3. Maybe places like Korea, parts of South America, Haiti, Eastern Europe, and Russia can, but Indonesia or Palestine, not much they can do alone, sadly.

    I agree 100% with what was said there. I have nothing against mexicans as a race, but the illegal immigration is really [devastating] alot of areas in terms of economy, and crime. Actually, it isn't Mexicans so much at all. Its really El Salvador who's the worst in that respect, unless you're in Texas or California

    There may be truth to what you say. You certainly cannot show anger. Anger is not socially acceptable in many circles. Sadness is not particularly accepted either. You know, stop feeling sorry for yourself, etc.

    Well, I thought I would drop a note of myself saying that England was the most miserable country I've visited. Of course it was not all over the place, but in general, people are just too snob, cold, and miserable.

    Re: Most miserable country?

    I always understood this American practice of feigning happiness no matter how you feel inside to be a strong trait of Anglo-Saxon culture in general. The English have long been seen as unemotional, i.e the British "stiff upper lip". This is characteristic of Germanic peoples to be less emotional than other ethnic groups. We tend to view our emotions from a distance. But one difference between Anglo-Saxon culture and German culture is that when you ask someone in England or America how they are, the person is not supposed to answer honestly. They are supposed to say automatically something like "Good! How are you?" In German culture it is more acceptable when asked "Wie geht's" to respond with a description of your health at the moment and what emotions you are truly feeling etc.

    I quite disagree there. I've also been to Austria and Germany and I loved the people there. Not as cold or unemotional as one would think, judging by the stereotype. I can't say much about Northern Germany, though... I had a lot of fun with the Austrians, I even learnt how to sing the Jodler, badly though.

    Or maybe because Americans/English don't really want to know how their countrymen are. They just ask "How are you?" to be polite, as a formality and nothing more. They might be living in "win or die" individualistic societies, in which people see each others only as concurrents and not as fellows, not as part of a same people.

    But I don't think it's only an AS stuff; I have this feeling here as well. People don't really give a damn about your mood, they don't listen to you, they have barely ask you that they don't even bother to listen to your reply and are gone... I think it's more of a modernity thing than anything else (individualism, competition, less contacts between people...).

In England, I barely knew anyone, especially in London, I really couldn't stand how snob, boring, sad most were. Really, it annoyed me.

    I would blame it on the ambience. I'm sorry to state this for those who live there, but that place is without doubt the most polluted place I've ever seen. If I lived there I wouldn't be exactly the most joyful person around, for sure.
