* Sutebi feels that MrColossal is kind of whiney, but he'll overlook it for now.
Now, I haven't been to these boards much lately, because of the whole real world thing, but I stopped by recently and I decided to pipe up again.
So, why did the US ask for other countries help in the first place? Because they were being polite. Say you're going to go play some Football with your buddies, and you've got a really good team, you don't really need to ask anyone for help, but you'll still invite anyone you happen to pass on your way to the field because, a) they'd be all heart broken if you didn't, and b) more men does add a factor of imtimidation to the game, even if half of them don't do anything. So basically, America was being polite to other militaries of the world. Making them feel good about themselves.
As towards the point of Michael Moore Hates America, if you read the site the filmmaker says that it isn't a film about Michael Moore specifically. It is about why the film maker believes America is great. And he also has some pretty interesting people as interviewees.
