Cantousent Posted August 31, 2005 Share Posted August 31, 2005 My point, other than you went out of your way to engage in the sort of activity you despise in others, is to ask why you care? So, some folks tout American exceptionalism. So what? The Dutch don't have as strong of a claim for their significance as does the United States. Like us or not, we're at the top right now. If some folks lack the tact to treat this fact with delicacy, then there's nothing to do but grin and bear it. There was a popular song in Britain at one time, "we've got the ships, we've got the men, and we've got the money too." Nations at the top generally have an understanding that they're at the top. You don't see my point? I think yours is irrelevant. It was a good point, but now it's just the same ol' point in a thread that has matured beyond the bashing level.
