I'm a little late into this discussion, but we in the peanut gallery wish to express our opinion, too, sometimes.
First, if you go into a situation seeking a (fill in the blank) woman, you're gonna probably have some preconceived notions. Be prepared to overwrite them. Otherwise, you're not gonna learn the woman your with. Not smart.
To those Americans who are overseas and ashamed of there nation:
Wherever you are, as long as it is not in the USA, is a GREAT place for you to be.
Please stay there!
For those who would judge an individual American for the actions of our (out of control) government - I say to you in my best fake Austrian accent...FAHK YOO AHHSWHOLE!! OK? You're too ignorant to even talk to. If you want to hurt/kill/fuck me over, that's your prerogative. In the meantime, I will try to express my loving/peaceful and empathetic intentions to you. If you TRY to hurt/kill/fuck me over, I G-U-A-R-A-N-T-E-E I will do everything within my power to SHITSTOMP your simple ass into non-existence! Unnerstan??? I would expect the same if I were to be so ignorant, myself. But I'm not.
Hey folks, looks like the U.S. is truly the "New Roman Empire" - doomed to fall, like all others previous. Yet, totally in charge at the moment. You think WE citizens like sending our children to die cleaning up other people's problems? Lemme tell you: FUCK NO!!! But be patient folks! All in due time. Subjectively speaking, we're here to stay. I mean, your granchildren will be dead and dessicated (after a LONG and natural life, of course!!) before you can even begin to WISH we're actually toothless. So get used to it!! Sorry. Chill out and enjoy life, unless maybe you think you got another one coming.
I really don't enjoy playing devil's advocate like this, as I have mojor problems with a LOT of what happens within and without my country - because of our leaders and megacorps, but somebody needs to point out the ugly TRUTH of the situation sometimes. Say hello to the Hegemon!
Back to Croatian women - don't know shit about'em as a group, but the only one I've ever met is simply and naturally beautiful, down to earth, friendly and kind.
I am honored to even be her friend. I have no idea if this applies to her ?fellow? femmes.
Can't say it's a fer sure thing, but I'd venture to think that any coolness towards Americans by the native population just MIGHT stem from their memory of the "swift and decisive" action brought on by the U.S. and NATO allies during that senseless and wholly preventable bloodbath which took place in their region back in the early- to mid-90's? Hello? Balkan "conflict" ring a bell? I would think certain Rhwandan folk wouldn't zactly be throwin' out the red carpets either. Where's the B$$F? Reality's a bitch, ain't it?
