I wonder why there is no option to show nationality as European. I realize that Europe is a swear word in the US and in Britain, where most of the employees of this website are, but if Wales and Scotland can have their flag, I don't see why those who grew beyond the nationalistic phase should not be able to express their sense of belonging to the European project as well.
Of course, some might think there are other things to worry about on this site, like about the Android app not working or thematic tournaments being phased out, but still, a bit of listening by the management here on this issue would be nice.
still not got over it then?
What are you talking about?
I don't quite see the link, but well, given that I am British as well, I win (or lose) whatever side you choose to put me on.
And why do they insist on our friend Assad stopping his civilian massacres. Yeah, we would be so much better without the UN, they are such a hindrance, right?
The U.N. supports regime change in Syria because of the influence of countries such as the U.S., France, Britain, Israel, Saudi Arabia, etc. Those countries don't care about the civilian population of Syria. They supply weapons and money to the "rebels" who continuously massacre Syrian civilians.
Britain does not supply weapons to Syrian rebels.
As ignorant as Fox, as vacuous as USA Today and as superficial as CNN? My several years working in Chicago tell me otherise.
I don't quite understand what point you are trying to make here. All I am hearing is a bunch of ignorant statements. I have lived up in the Midwest too so I have seen the same media you are talking about. I have also been around the people and I don't see any animosity towards Europe. In fact, I would say that Americans as a whole quite frankly don't care what they do.
I would make a comment about the UN controlling the U.S., but I will just leave that on its own since it is just plain stupid.
Following on your line of thought, I would guess most Americans do not know Europe exists.
Well obviously you are smart enough to know that would be incorrect.
Caring is the feeling produced by an opinion.
Opinion requires knowledge of something.
You cannot form an opinion on an idea without knowledge of its existence.
Therefore you cannot care about something that does not exist.
But you can not care about something that does not exist.
There are some large groups that prove you wrong. One will shortly elect a new leader.
Took me a good 10 seconds.
Thank you for accelerating the lock, btw.
Oh dear, I was looking for a chess discussion...aren't there enough sites for polital discussions/opinions and mud- throwing? Can't we just help and improve each other's chess skills? Making assumptions and accusations about countries and the people who live in them, are really not going to improve tolerance, respect and acceptance between the people of the world. Let's play chess!
Remember : gens una sumus, hum ?
Nope. Hey, you forgot to say "In before the lock"! What's up with that?
NO POLITICAL DISCUSSIONS IN PUBLIC FORUMS. mod.
