Considerably more rude things are said on Vent nightly.  "Balls to the face" comments come to mind.

Honestly to say France wimped out is a pretty cheap statement to make for wwII. They were the first allied country to get the full military force of germany plowing through there country, killing millions of military and even innocent people.

Germany signed a non-aggression pact with USSR and then splitting poland in half btween german and USSR. France stood little chance against the military force of germany. Germany at the time had no other threats to concentrate on besides france. At the time, they didn't have to split there military force to fight 2, 3 or even 4 battle fronts. It was one front.

So to say they wimped out is kind of an ignorante statement. American can not even fatham what that country went through during that time in history. Simple statements like these are also why other countries dislike americans.

Don't get me wrong, I love America. But I can see how some people might get a bad taste in there mouth over this post.

Everyone is entitled to their opnion. Just keep it clean.

Other than that, it was a good post.

I read it more like it doesn't matter what people think of your country....no matter what they say, its about pride in what you have, who you are, where you belong.  So there were some ignorant comments....that's the point...it doesn't matter.  It matters how you FEEL about it.

Sort of like the country song lyrics:

I don't give a dern what other people think
What do ya think about that?

i fail to see how this post can be in any way rude... the post is truth in my eyes for me the whole and sole reason i am still even playing this game is bc i love spending my time with the good ppl i have met in this guild and my best friend brian (Cellwynar) and thats about it my gear and skill just come from enjoying the game with these ppl and tackling the content together with them bc with out em its the same as playing a single player hand held game that doesnt cost 16 a month

Rather than using reason or some sort of counter argument to discredit my assertions, you instead insisted that a contrived generalization of me discredits me. This IS elitism. The notion that right and wrong can be determined my mere fashion or taste is a long-established rhetorical tactic. It's much easier to suggest that ▀leu is a xenophobic redneck than to rebuff any statements I might make.

Hey! That was humor. Saying I'm not elitist means I'm still a windbag. Ha-ha?

Anyway, I used a smiley for a reason. I wasn't calling you a redneck. I never assumed you hated France, Mexico and whoever else. If I had, I wouldn't have mentioned it. If I don't have something nice to say, I generally don't say anything at all. I assumed that you were making a humorous point by exaggerating the bad features of other countries, only you didn't do a good job and it just sounded rude instead. Which was a shame as it took away from what was otherwise a good post.

I guess my exaggeration by saying you sounded like a redneck wasn't funny either.

I apologize if you felt I believed you were. I only thought you sounded like one. :)
