    1. I guess history is really written by the winners. They all keep forgetting about the 2 nukes that were dropped in Japan. Pearl Harbor is nothing compared to that.

    2. This is why everyone hates America. I’m going to watch some 9/11 videos to cheer myself up

    3. Okay a couple of douche-waters on something as irrelevant as facebook makes Americans the “Assholes of the World”.

      How much did other countries donate/help compared to America, I wonder? I’m pretty sure Ahmed Mamoud Bin Al-Muhammed didn’t put down his AK-47 for a second to go paypal some cash to Red Cross.

      We aren’t the greatest people, but Christ, get some perspective before posting this shit.

    4. The Pearl Harbor bombing happened 70 years ago. With a minimum age to join the army being 18, you’d be blaming 88+ year olds, of whom the majority are long since dead and taking out that hate on innocent people who’ve had nothing to do with that decision. It’s ignorance of this caliber that makes it difficult to keep faith in humanity.

      @bstaples: Do you actually know the figures America and other countries donated? Furthermore, why are you bringing the Muslim argument into this? The “Assholes of the World” comment does sound like flame bait, but your response is coming off equally as ignorant. For your own benefit, think for a while longer before posting/speaking in the future.

      • “For your own benefit, think for a while longer before posting/speaking in the future.”
        Take your own advice (and shove it).

        “How much did other countries donate/help compared to America, I wonder?”
        “How much” part meaning, no, I don’t know the figures. FYI, this is also represented by the “I wonder” part.

        I’m simply pointing out that running around carelessly with explosives and charitable relief donations are on opposite ends. If your country is known more for the former than the latter, how are we the “Assholes of the World”?

    5. Most of these posters aren’t American. There is a better collage picture somewhere that shows what country these people are really from. Only a minority of them are Americans.

    6. Lord, this is such bullshit. No other country in the world has provided as much support to the victims of this disaster than America. Our military was on the scene immediately and is still there. We’ve provided millions in donations through the American Red Cross alone. Search and Rescue teams along with other volunteers arrived a few days later and some are still there.

      Then again the anti-American trolls here know this, they just have to stir up crap. No different from the morons who wrote the stuff in the picture.

      You’re just alike . . . how proud you must be.

      • Some say that was a political ploy to justify having a military base in Japan.

        How many other countries have military installations in Japan, btw?

        • We’ve always had a military base in Japan ever since WWII

        • None. We defeated them after they attacked us first and then we spent billions to rebuild their country so it is natural we would, with their agreement, have bases there. We are not occupiers – they could ask us to leave and leave we would. Thing is we are close allies and our military there works with the Japanese Defense Forces to provide stability in that part of the world.

          • So it’s their job to do help in Japan?

            Well then, give them a salary instead of praise.

            • No, it’s their job to serve their country – one they volunteered for and because of that deserve both our praise and a living wage. The fact – and it is a fact – that individual service members get great personal satisfaction from helping those in need is a testament to their greatness and to that of our country since we as a people send them to do that. Let’s not forget that American’s give more to charity than any other people (per capita and as a percentage of GDP) in the world much of which is going to Japan and Haiti and other areas in need as I type this.

            • So getting personal satisfaction for doing something is a testament to their greatness? Are you even reading what you’re writing?

              I think it is a good thing USA gives to charity, but let’s be honest here: since the country is in constant war with poorer countries, it’s the least it can do.

              Oh, and do you know if those are secular charities or are they funneled through churches?

    7. I’ve never met a single American that thinks this way. If Americans were still burnt over Pearl Harbor, why are there so many Japanese cars on American streets? Go to New York City and every other person is Japanese tourist. Americans love the Japanese.

      Every time there is a disaster somewhere, Americans are the first on the scene to help. There are American naval vessels right now off Japan providing supplies, medical aid, power and fresh water. They were there after Haiti, there after the 2004 Tsunami.

      How many foreign countries came to help after Katrina?

    8. A perfect example of the flaw in the concept of “deserve”. These people are just grasping at an inane excuse to justify their own apathy towards the issue.

    9. I don’t think you guys get it, these folks are wilfully ignorant and some folks in America seem to take pride in their stupidity, even embrace it. Those are the people I despise, but I despise them worldwide, it’s not just focussed on the USA.

    10. Red Cross donation per habitant :
      switzerland : 12,85 $
      uk = 1,37$
      netherland : 3$

      usa : 0.72 $

      yeah rigth !

      • Most charitable donations in the USA go to religious charities, not the Red Cross, but much of this religious charitable giving goes to disaster relief. The following is based on 2005 data so it’s a dated but telling none the less.

        Total Giving: Total charitable giving by Americans in 2005 is estimated to have been $260.28 billion, an increase of 2.7 percent (when adjusted for inflation) over 2004.

        Disaster Relief: Americans gave an estimated $7.37 billion for disaster relief in 2005: $5.3 billion for Hurricane Katrina, $1.92 billion for the Tsunami relief, and $0.15 billion for the India-Pakistan earthquake relief.

        Giving to Religious Groups: Americans gave an estimated $93.18 billion to religious organizations in 2005, an increase of 2.5 percent (when adjusted for inflation).

        The reference site is listed below:

        • Giving to religious groups, that’s -25% (number taken right out of thin air) that goes to building churches, printing bibles and going to Africa to say that condoms don’t prevent HIV/aids.

          • I’m going to assume this is sarcasm again, because it has little to do with reality. Religious groups were some of the first groups on the ground during Katrina both in New Orleans and all along the Gulf Coast. Not to mention Haiti which had food, clothing and volunteers there almost immediately.

            But even if you accept that as true, that’s still about $170 billion given to charity by Americans. The Red Cross is just a part of a large charitable entity here.

            • Don’t feed the troll. Korinthian is literally casefag’s evil twin. Just downvote and go about your day as usual.

            • Man, you’re not good at this. That wasn’t sarcasm at all.

              I wasn’t even talking about who was where first. I was talking about how there’s a big chance of charity money donated to religious groups going to other things than you’d expect as a donor.

              So if you’re a charitable person yourself, and if you want your money to go where you intend them to, choose a secular charity.

            • @center: Don’t be bitter about having lost to me before. That’s water under the bridge.

              Every time you make a comment like the one I’m replying to now, I know that I have hurt you deeply.

              I won’t lie and say it makes me feel bad, but nobody likes having a grumpy guy resorting to petty back-talk, right? Surely you’re better than that.

    11. Fuck Nationalism. Humanity is scum.

    12. Wait a sec… God’s American now?

    13. I would like to see the comments left by the friends of this lot. I’m sure their friends and family would be telling them to shut it.

      As it is there are some dumbass Americans out there, but there are also some dumbass Brits, dumbass French and Dumbass Canadian people out there.

      I liken this to a conversation between myself and some dipshit I know just after 9/11. He was basically happy it happened, he felt America deserved it. I basically lost his temper and asked him if each and every individual human being in the towers deserved to die. He said “yeah cuz they’re all Murrican!”. I shook my head in disbelief/disgust and walked away.

    14. Assholes – the assholes of the world, every country has them, just some are more vocal and have greater access to modern communications.

    15. Basically everyone should die except me.

      And those of you who contribute to the goods I consume.

    16. To be fair, these people are probably picking through the remains of their trailer in Alabama.

    17. so what does a few thousand soldiers at Pearl NHarbour compare to the annihilation of an entire culture? Perhaps Hurricane Katrina was “karma” for the NATIVE Americans.

      And as an Australian, yes I am well aware this applies to us too, with the bushfires of Black Saturday (etc) and recent catastrophic floods of the eastern states perhaps being “karma” for the Australian natives.

      Seriously people, do you really think “karma” has anything to do with this? What makes you all so pompous to think you’re all holier and more righteous than everyone else? EVERYONE has wronged someone, and everyone has been wronged by someone else. You want to get some perspective – there it is. We are all people, individuals, capable of both good and evil. In the eyes of the universe we are all equal, no matter what patch of earth we were born on, nor the genetic profile we are made of; not our beliefs, not our gender, not our sexuality — and ESPECIALLY not the actions of our ancestors — means squat in a truly objective view of the human race.

      The ONLY thing that matters is how we – as individuals – treat the individuals and the world around us. THAT is the universal perspective.

    18. Facebook ised to require a .edu email address to join… I miss the days when everyone on FB had at least seen the inside of a university.

    19. wow… i feel like people should harass them until they cry. or somehow cause an earthquake to destroy their homes. what utter bastards.

    20. so if something happens in USA its karma up their asses just for this comments about japan? like the tornados?

    21. when the earthquake happened, most people in China broke out in wild celebration. My boss forbid even mentioning Japan because that meant the entire place would break out into an instant party.

    22. Half of any western society are liberals. Given that most liberals are assholes, there is thus a huge pool of assholes in any western nation. It is a mammoth extrapolation (more directly stated – an act of stupidity) to define 300+ million Americans based on approx a dozen assholes. The proportion is almost the same to define Canadians using just justin bieber. Libs and math. Wow.
