styckx: What is with our obsession with giving a shiat how others perceive us? Do other countries go to great length to make sure when Americans visit their country it doesn't come off as "too pro UK" or "too pro Japan" ... For god sakes man.. What happened to us?
El_Perro: So we're reporting on things that *almost* happened now?
GoldSpider: We ought to tear down any displays of the flag-raising on Iwo Jima from public view while we're at it.
FrancoFile: People who run museums still think that they are the ultimate arbiters of history.
BunkoSquad: Well, if it's in the NY Post, I'm sure that's exactly the way it went down.

Super Chronic: Regardless of what you think about flag-waving from the perspective of 2013, the fact is it perfectly captured the mood of the fall of 2001, and for that reason is an important historic artifact. It absolutely has to be included in the museum.
reggaejunkiejew: Isn't it iconic, don't you think... ITS LIKE TERROORRRRRISM on a September day, its a free RIIIIIIIIDe cause you hijacked the plane, its some good ADVIIIIIIIIIIIIIIICE to learn to land a plane, but who would have thought, sand n1gg33333333333333rs.
soupafi: I don't want to live on this planet anymore.
space1999: "I really believe that the way America will look best, the way we can really do best, is to not be Americans so vigilantly and so vehemently," Shulan said.What a douchebag. There's a huge difference between this:[www.nypost.com image 300x400]and this:[videostore-cdn.eu.playstation.com image 432x240]
solitary: aggressive assholes
jshine: Too bad the military dumped Osama in the ocean, or we could have just frozen him and put him on display in the museum in a glass freezer.
solitary: You are aggressive assholes and the rest of the world does indeed believe you suck. You should tone it down and stop being such a bunch of killers, from your President, your military, your NRA, your death penalty, right down to the lunatic with the guns at college.To be an american means you have to buy into a whole bunch of patriotic bullshiat to try and pretend that you aren't the big assholes you really are. No wonder so many of you are mentally ill.You can wave your little flag around all you like but the rest of the planet ain't buying it.
Rabid Badger Beaver Weasel: The problem isn't with the photo being too American. The problem is the people who took us into Iraq afterward while using 9/11 as an excuse./Checks outside for drones.
