Probably some stiff-wad Brit.

Sorry Zak, that's where I got the impression from.

To Romac, I guess that's a good a reason as any ever will be. Sorry it had to be that way, though.

That guy had no right doing what he did! No matter what anyone says! Oh, and USofFA,(Nerdhunter)SO YOUR SAYING EVERY NATIONALITY THAT ISN'T AMERICAN IS PERFECT!?!THAT THE CHINESE, AND THE BRITISH, AND MEXICO, YOU THINK THEY ARE PERFECT!?!I ADMIT THAT AMERICA IS DEFINATELY NOT PERFECT, BUT NOONE ELSE IS EITHER!!

There is no such thing as peace, war is forever and inevitable. It is mans instinct to fight. We are used to violence.

I think all this is pointless.

Romac, seriously, don't come back to this site just to flame; it's starting to piss me off. I feel your hate for Brits, but remember: not all are the same. It's just like saying that all Americans are too stuck up to learn about any other countries - which only some are.

Oh, and have you seen Fahrenheit 9/11? All that stuff you said about the USA saving other people - well, some of it - is complete bullshit. I'm not insulting you, but I think that America has alot of faults that need fixing. Violence does not need to be solved with more violence. There are different ways.

I personally don't like Brits...a few Brits raped my sister a few months ago. I got jumped by these Brits before, then stabbed their asses and got sent to juvi for a few months...I'm getting off subject. I just don't like them. They left an impression of their people on me that will never fade. Sorry, truly I am, but, I, hate British.

In case USoFA comes back or romac or Zak...come on, grow up.

USoFA: Pissing people off for fun=childishly bad idea. It's like saying "hey, what does THIS button do??" while sitting on a cruise missle.

Romac: Actually, we've had our share of crappy decisions too. We pretty much stole Panama from whoever had it first, we only started the open door policy in China because we wanted in on the trade, and we have had some serious problems with bad treatment of immigrants back in the day. Irish, Chinese, Hispanic, you name it, we've bashed it. In Japan, please rememeber also that Japan is now the number one giver of humanitarian aid. Our nukes were there because they were the last enemy standing and it really isn't something to be proud of. Honestly, it isn't. And look at the world up to now. Japan uses us as a frickin' market today as if we're the colony. They out teched us and out sold us in the 70's and 80's. Not a people to be toyed with. And would you quit the superior country thing? We have money, that's for sure, but money and economic aid demanded by lobbists and given because it gets more voters makes us pretty slimey folks.

And in World war II, America played one hell of a role, to be sure, but when Hitler backstabbed Russia, THAT was his fatal mistake. And not trusting Rommel, who correctly predicted that our drop would be in Normandy, not Calais.(sorry on the spelling) D-Day would have failed if they hadn't pulled out many of their tank divisions and had not withheld the SS troops. I do not mean this to lessen teh significance of what our boys did over there. We took Utah and Omaha beaches, which were the heaviest and bloodiest of them all. But just remember, Britain and France were in there far longer, took many more casualties, and were just as if not more deadly than our troops ever were. Yes, even the 101st airborne was probably matched with the British commandos. We sent in numbers, they send in quality.

Zak: Drop. The. Hate. For. Brits. Who do you think had our backs in Operation Iraqi freedom despite other people pulling stake? Britian, dammit! Who came up witht he Firefly variant on our Sherman tanks in World War Two? Britain! Who built us our infratstructure before the American revolution? Britain!

Moderation, good sirs. Apologies if I offend anyone.

P.S That was a real funny joke, Nerdhunter!(Sarcasm)
All it is is Jealousy........jealousy because we are the superior country.

ussually when people are making fun of other people, like you making fun of us, its because they are jealous. If you dont like us, deal with it. WE are the superpower, WE save EVERYBODYS asses in time of war and need. WE liberated Iraq, captured that fuckbag Hussein, and hopefully give his ass the needle. WE defeated Hitlers army(with help), WE kicked USSR's in the balls so bad, "she" fell apart and crumbled. We are not full of our selves, some of us are just sick of being took for granted, I mean whatever nationality YOU are, we probaly helped you. Or depending on what country, like Japan. We nuked the shit out of you. Anyways, if you don't like the way the world works, why don't YOUR country, become a superpower. If not please refrain from making fun of this wonderful country.

I still stand by my comment that americans are arrogant but i'll say maybe not all of them. I just wrote what i did to start with to see your reactions - they were good! =). I'm not completely against yous but just some aspects of the general population. I will applaude Berconius' comment - well thought out and meaningful, but I wont get over the fact that alot of people in America think that they are all that. Oh yeah, and it was a coincidence that it was on your indepence day... he he... sorry buddies.

And one last thing. If none of you have already guessed: I am 'Nerdhunter' aswell. Again - just for the reactions - i've got no beef with nerds.

Thanks for the angry replies guys! Well appreciated!

P.S. You'll never know what nationality I am, but one of your writers does.

I wasn't going to reply, but I will after what I have read. You Americans think you're better than everyone else don't you? You think I'm from a third world country and that i want to get into yours cos you think Americans are great. Why the hell would I want to do that? Then you call me a Brit, i'm not. Stupid fuckers - so full of yourselves. You think that Americans are superior to all else.
Remember this:
For these reasons you are hated by many.

Whoever wrote that post that was making fun of americans, well, I can not express the anger felt within me right now in words. So i'll just say: You're just some poor punk living in a 3rd world country who wishes he could get into America, and wants more attention than that by doing it on OUR day, the Fourth of July. That's all I've got to say about that.


P.S Who does he think he is?

It's just a story guys. The whole earth is getting nailed by the covies, and to try and read something sinister into what Severian wrote is a bit paranoid.

Some of the best writing on here, Severian, keep it up.

That's practically what I meant, Barconius... Since by that time China will literally be wallowing in it's own people, three billion people swarming a city isn't TOO out of context.
But yeah, millions would have been nice.

Hey watch it, both of you. Don't fight flames with more flames, it doesn't solve a damn thing.

And who is this guy? I mean, I admit that many aspects of American society are kinda shady(medicinal Marijuana party) and some downright fubar(some of our reality TV shows...), but what's all this about? It's not like no other country is ethnocentric and stuff.

If you are offended by the implied deaths of the Chinese people, look at the past tactics of China, the desperation of the situation, and the point Severian was trying to make. Don't tell me about how insulting this is to Chinese people, I'm chinese by blood. All 100% from precommunist China. This isn't a crack at their strategy at all. It's about how bad the war was going. Training 13 year olds to fight and handle guns? Using weapons that are about the equivalent of using a thousand year old shortbow today? Come on, look at the story, dammit. Things are bad, people were running out of options, and they fought with everything down to the kitchen sink and their neighbor's detached arm. Since they won, they glorified it as a victory. Every one does that. It makes the deaths seem more acceptable.

We're not all fucked in the head. Our druggies might be. Green Peace activists sure seem like it. How are we being judged anyway? Is it character? It's relative, isn't it? How are people fucked in the head if they still care about their friends and family and do what they've been taught is the right thing to do? Are the people who give money to help feed starving children from Somalia and Rwanda fucked in the head? Seem like nice people to me.

To severian: 3 billion is a bit much. 3 million, I can buy since the present Chinese military is about 2 million. Billions, though, would pretty much require a planet to house. They probably wouldn't even FIT on the battle field. They could rain bodies from the sky and simply bury the covenant alive if they had a three billion man army.

To romac1991: The British would never have lost if it weren't for the help of the French. We also cheated a lot of US citizens out of millions of dollars of funding and never paid their families back. At least not that I know of. When our armies fought, they really weren't that untrained...We had our regulars.

And besides, the British are fine people. Point and case, Monty Python's Flying Circus. It was the South Park of it's day.

As much as I write, I really wish people would quit putting random flames up in the comments section. It gets annoying to read.

Nice writing style, Severian, sounding pretty original for a Halo fanfic. 9/10

Hold up. Don't you call us Americans fucked in the head. What are you british? Didn't you get your ass kicked by American farmers enough in the Revolutionary War. Whatever you are, you shouldn't make fun of America or any other country no matter how great or small. And the Fourth of July of all days to do this, Christ, you must be some spineless freak who WISHES to go to America but is stuck in a third world country. If that is the case, you still shouldn't be saying stuff bout the States. Anyways, dont bring that shit in here, if it wasn't for America, there wouldn't be any Halo to play. And you wouldn't be talking shit on this website either. Sit on that, bitch.


PS YOU, are fucked up in the head you twisted son of a bitch.
