See america. When giving to the Tsunami appeal ,they gave the least in proportion to wealth. As America is the richest ( and most selfish) country in the world this seems unfair. Only after complaints from the rest of the appaled world did 'Dubya' decide to give the rest of his spare change and be the leader of the aid giving. Giving aid just to make yourself look good is low. For the record, the British public gave far more to the appeal than The US government.
Amercians are some fat-ass selfish gimps.

Thank you, anti-yankee, for yet another tasteless diatribe on why everyone in the United States is evil because the American GOVERNMENT is a bunch of selfish wankers. I'm surprised that you failed to mention that the money that Bush pledged comes from the EXISTING U.S. budget for foreign aid, not an additional sum to add onto the whole.
Yes, I'm an American and I knew that. You can stop staring, it's rude.
The problem with you good people of Europe is your overwhelming impulse to condescend to everyone from the U.S. that you can get your hands on, so you can launch into another diatribe about how us, the many, are evil because of the actions of our government, the few. It gets really irritating after a while, not to mention how you operate on the assumption that we don't already KNOW any of this.
In other words: piss off, you bloody wanker.

Brit: ...okay, fine. Not ALL Americans are like that.
