In a Slashdot article on the American military buying antrax Itchy Rich said the following which I think is an excellent quote:

> Stop the US bashing

Stop bombing people. Stop toppling democratically elected governments. Stop preaching about democracy when your own government is controlled by corporate lobbyists. Stop torturing people. Stop imprisonment without trial. Clean up your pollution.

I have good friends who are citizens of the USA. Lots of you are nice people, but as a nation you face justifiable critisism.

If people criticising the USA makes you unhappy then do something about the bad things your country is doing. Don’t try and stop the free speech that your great nation was founded on.
