The pilot clearly didn't earn his license from Huffman Aviation.

This video is all one needs to see to understand why Americans are roundly hated around the world, i.e. "the Ugly American."  I totally understand that viewpoint and, if I weren't Amerikan (sic), I'd have that view.

Clearly, unfortunately, not that many people are capable of self-criticism and would rather live comfortably within the realms of over-zealousness or hollow moral relativism

Dude, do you ever say anything that is not about Obama? I don't love the guy but all your opinions are about

him. Are you obsessed? Or?

 If you were an American, South or Central type, or lived in their culture and not some ex-pat conclave and just read the bigoted, ignorant 'opinions' based on tv and movies of many here you would easily understand why they resent, if not hate gringos-----'Amerikans' in your lingo. This is not new among white banker/broker wannabees here; it was the main reason I never talked with most of my colleagues during twenty years as a retail puke in LA. The clients were enough for me, but at least they helped me put food on the table.

Now having lived twenty years in another country just to escape these types---they are coming here to flee taxes in their retirement and bringing shit with them----there's just no place to run to---the fuckers are all over the place, nickel and diming the poor      om

There is no place to run, no place to hide from US citizenism.

US citizenism has gone global.

Sure, sure, your hatred on US citizens makes it possible to play all angles. If a counter example appears, ignore it, laugh to tears, and heap up the tar of US citizenism with your broad brush.

That is a nice world of fantasy you are building here. Unable to connect with reality...

But hey, it is self justifying.

yeah, I always thought about this happening on a landing pad right above our sleeping quarters where we slept and lived on a US Navy ship with Sea Knights landing and taking off out at sea and also at night.

Providing starting capital to help the local economy to grow.

The US of A will need more and more drugs that once smuggled in Iran, will help to prepare the population to US citizen freedom.

Ah, appeal to ignorance. Yeah, sure. Made me laugh.

Chinese citizenism math running crowd. History will be seen through the scope of Chinese citizenism which leads to quite a distorted self perception.

The quest for symmetry leads Chinese citizenism citizens on unbelievable paths. In the past, distant past, recent past or what? You know, because with Chinese citizenism citizens, facts do not matter so what?

Cascading effect and as commodity providers, they are at the bottom.
