I guess a British man, especially one in the armed forces, should not complain about anything in any country then, we've had enough of British history, have we not? Or you can ignore such juvenile thinking and not try to deflect issues.Originally posted by: JohnOfSheffield
Well, i'll just ignore that, shooting a suspect not willing to stop on site isn't a thing a US citizen should ever complain about, we've had enough threads about US cops shooting grandmas and children as it is, have we not?Originally posted by: CanOWorms

I don't think he was referring to the standard of living, Don. I'm thinking it was more along the lines of the 'surveillance society' and some of the trends there.Originally posted by: Don Vito Corleone
Boy, as it happens I just spent a week in England, and I couldn't disagree more. The country is really thriving, and on balance I'd say the average Briton is definitely doing better than the average American.
There are cams pretty much everywhere, like at ATM's, parking lots, you know, not as many as in the US but still, a lot of them.
The tapes are constant but never watched unless there is a crime committed, you know, like in the US.
What we DON'T have is "no knock warrants" or "warantless wiretaps".
We can't haul away citizens to an off shore camp to be tortured to death either or just held indefinently without charges, just can't do that shit in England, it's kind of against the law.
I have no idea what you're talking about. I don't what the "Haag court" is, but I'm assuming that you mean The Hague. However, the UN tribunal on Rwanda is not at The Hague. The ICTR is in Africa.Answer the other thread and show me which Rwandans who are not being extradited to the Haag court.
Nope.Of course, now you're going to run, run, run.... right?
