Remember that time the U.S. shot down an Iranian civilian airliner over Iranian airspace, killing all 290 on board, including 66 children, and then refused to apologize for doing it?
"I will never apologize for the United States. I don’t care what the facts are. I’m not an apologize-for-America kind of guy." — Vice President (and then-presidential candidate) George H.W. Bush, commenting on the downed airliner, 8/2/1988

That quote makes me sick.

And people wonder why the rest of the world hates us

While this was a God awful tragedy, the OP and the follow up replies fail to include A LOT of the facts and context of this case. Small things such as, Iranian gun boats had fired on the helicopter for the USS Vincennes that was returning from escort duty in international waters. This caused the Vincennes to become engaged in a chase that led them into Omani waters before the Omani navy told both the US and Iranian ships to GTFO. The chase continued on into Iranian waters and air space. The crew thought it was an F14. The airport used in take off by the airliner was also used by F14 attack aircraft of the Iranian Air Force.
There were a thousand things that went wrong in this situation. There were limitations of communication and technology that kept the USS Vincennes from directly addressing the commercial airliner. It did attempt 10 communications (7 military and 3 civilian channels) that the airliner ignored thinking they were for/about another airplane in the area. 
It was just a horrible fucking tragedy, but this OP seems to indicate that this was something started by, pressed on and carried out by the US and that’s just fucking bullshit. In the year previous to this, the US Navy had suffered 3 direct attacks in those waters resulting in the loss of US Navy sea men. This was during the Iran-Iraq war when all sorts of nations were doing all sorts of fucked up things in the region.

sorry for the babble, but I always see these ‘fuck America’ out of context posts that never paint more than 1/100th of the story.

Cops Seek Tips in Nude Beach Blow Job Jet Ski Slay

It’s nearing the end of July and I believe we may have a winner for ‘Best article headline of 2014’

You know those commercials

That sell you on the brand that’s always been there for you, like a part of your family. Perhaps, even a bit more than family. Chevrolet, Coke, McDonald’s. You’ve seen it before.

But really, if you think about it, none of them have really been there for you like Velveeta.

1am

Seems like the perfect time to make mac and cheese.

This is my prophet.

I had another interview for this company today. Years ago, they begged me to join them when they opened the facility. I remained loyal to my employer. (big mistake) I’ve applied there before and was virtually assured a job after going through the lengthy process only to be left hanging. I applied there again recently, but things in my life have changed since I applied there. I’d take it, but it’s something that I’d ride out until something better came along.
I told B today that I was just going to ‘Office Space’ the entire interview/testing process. Guess what, I keep on passing through with flying colors. They’re singing my praises and I’m like, ‘did you really even grade that test? I had no sleep and even less fucks to give while taking it?!’
Fuck the man.

This should be mandatory reading for any guy who has a pregnant partner. I could also just write you the Cliff’s Notes version entitled: “You’re wrong, just fucking live with it and get the ice cream.”
