Okay, I have a question, if this can be done in a civilized manner


Funny how this (let's be civilized now) pops up when criticism towards the lands over the big water happen to arise. Criticism is a two way street, and somebody at one end has made plenty of criticism towards everyone and dog, getting some in return shouldn't feel overly uncivilized.

You think we've criticized the Europeans more than they criticize us?
