Do these people lack self-awareness? I'm sorry to any American comrades on here, but jesus christ I hate America so god damn much.

yep, I'm pretty sure.

higher/lower than Miliband matters more for narratives about Corbyn as leader specifically

please don't judge us all for these idiots. Burgers can be good people too.

B-but that's own of my own countrymen (>tfw your mom owned a washing machine that was owned by Schwarzenegger's mum).

I know you guys can be great people but fuck the Internet makes it really hard innit.

duuuuuuuuuuude.

Thanks for this OP. Just been rewatching Gunbuster and she is 2 qt.

Holla Forums is peerless

lol true I just choose the picture because of its corny as fuck patriotism (big flag in the background).

I hear you though man, unfortunately we have a really big lolbert movement here and lots of really cringeworthy people doing cringeworthy shit. I shed tears in embarrassment.

I'm still glad a few good Americans remain. Keep strong, m8.

I swear, antifa should actually start bringing along spears and swords. At least the whole thing would start to be entertaining then.

One thing I don't get is, if America wants permanent nation building, why don't they do it the "proper" way like the Chinese are doing in Africa or like the brits did in the past?

If you're going to engage in colonialism, why not spend on railroads instead of bombs? Where is the fucking logic?

first off, they can get any puppet government to do that.

secondly, that's if they're actually interested in doing it. this shit is just to keep the war machine going.
