CMON ANDY .GROW UP MAN. THIS IS A REALLY HONEST POST BY PAUL AND IS MEANT TO ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO HELP .WHY DO YOU HAVE TO BE SUCH A PESSIMIST.
DO YOU THINK PEOPLE WHO POST THINGS YOU DONT LIKE DONT FEEL FOR WHAT HAPPENED .

Pranav,
He is just being a sourpuss. Ignore his pessimism.

Call me what you like. But honestly if i was against country X and bashed it every chance i got then why would i go to a appreciateX site?
Thats a cool site, and ill go when it opens because i like what it stands for.
But yes i do think there are people here that dont feel bad about what happened. Thats my takeon things. Sorry if im not all pc like some try to be. As much as id like to get along with everyone on this planet, i know thatll never happen and so i dont try to pretend like its true.

Tony ,Andy
Im sorry to push this matter further ,but could you guys let us know where people have stated that they do not feel for what happened. just one post would be sufficient
Im just curious!!!
I think you guys are assuming that anything said against the US means that people do not feel for the past incidents. I have been following the discussions pretty closely and have never seen such a post.
Things in the favour of US need not necessarily be in favour of other countries. And I hope you dont want examples for that. I can post examples but dont want this to become another thread for mud slinging.

Paul .
I think the argument was about ...if people feel sorry for what happened or not. And i dont think that either of the people you mentioned said that they do not feel sorry.
As much as I dislike Zulfiqar Raza for his posts against India ...i still dont think that he does not feel for what happened recently.
dont know if he can answer this post if hes reading it because he seems to have become very quiet and does not post in his real name anymore.
As far as the US policy is concerned i have repeatedly said that What is good for you country is not good for some others .And i still stick to it. But these swhould not be taken as anti US sentiments.
