"I resent such comments. First of all, I have never in my history on these boards (over 2 years) tried to be an armchair CEO. And yes, I do know enough about foriegn affairs and politics to say that I do disagree with our current foreign policy. I read the news, I keep up with things.'
My comment about "Armchair Airliine CEO's" was not to be directed at you, but to several "other" members of this board who also consider themselves "Armchair Prime Ministers", "Armchair Generals" and of course, "Armchair God's".
Actaully alot of us know alot about foreign affairs since alot of us read, watch news and listen to commentary. Some of us have been around longer
to have experienced personally the outcomes of foreign policy as well.
"Now, continuing to the intended point of my post which seems to be overlooked. Though the USA has made her mistakes, I am thoroughly disgusted with the amount of anti-Americanism. It seems that people are just looking for a reason to jump aboard the 'I Hate America' bandwagon."
This is already a "given". A.net is also an international forum and people with all kinds of viewpoints are supposedly welcome to particpate and say their piece as long as it meets the "user guidelines" amongst them:
" Although Airliners.net does not and cannot review all messages posted and is not responsible for the content of any of these messages, we at Airliners.net reserve the right to delete any message for any or no reason whatsoever"
We all understand that moderators can't read every post; however, when ovious "flame" is posted and the moderators are aware, they should pull the objectionable material quickly instead of becoming another instrument to spread disinformation. (I can think of one thread posted that was an "obvious" flame and the moderator, after being told twice that many statemets were out of line more or less said that the thread was no worse a flame than many others. Well, 2 wrongs don't make a right now do they??)
