Doe: Yours is by far the most sensible comment I've read. I would just add this, the last thing this country needs is for the army to take to the streets, that is what we have a police force for. The military is to protect our country and people as a whole not just a few small groups of social inadequates.

Yeah, bring the British Army in. Why don't they use the Fire Brigade hose pipes on the rioters? That is aim high velocity water at them, not beat them with the hose pipes. LOL!!!

The fire services aren't employed to be used in matters of civil unrest. They answer calls to help, regardless of who the caller is, with the three tenets of 'Save life, protect property and render humanitarian services'. They do not take sides and anyone who thinks that a fire brigade uniform makes them an establishment figure to be abused and threatened is a moron.

I was not suggesting that the Fire Brigade get involved, I was trying to explain which sort of hoses to use! The only ones I know of are the ones that the Fire Brigade out fires with.

Sorry, Filmaddict, I wasn't calling you a moron. Just that there are those who can't distinguish between the police, ambulance and fire service. With regard to the hoses...high pressure water can cause serious damage on a person and I, for one, wouldn't be too sorry to see some damage inflicted upon these hooded, masked yobs. Who cares if a looter gets damaged? It would be summary justice.

I should think theyíre usually drunken louts who can't distinguish between community servants; I personally admire every single one of our hardworking and loyal emergency service employees. We could not do without them. God help us if for any reason they no longer exist, as they're the only ones standing between us and unreasonable ignoramuses.

A typical response from an American; no intellectual input, just 'Proud to be an American'. Making such a statement says more about you than us.

Maybe it does say a lot. He's just watched a video of his countrymen being smart enough, even though they have the bigger numbers, to know when to draw on the experience of others who have been there and done for many years what they need to trained for. Considering the size and magnitude of his country's influence, it may have been a little humbling, but he is still proud. It also begs the question, why so few instances of people on here saying how proud they are to be English? I am. I'm proud that we have these skills and the fortitude to have persevered under the circumstances in which they were learned. We may be small, but our almost sole occupation for the last few thousand years has been war, defensive as well as offensive, and I'm proud that we still have a lot to bring to the table.

Doe, who in part financed the troubles in Northern Ireland? Plain old US citizens; some many generations removed from NI.

Filmaddict if the british troops had done what they were sent in to do there would have been no troubles or at least not on the scale that they were. So instead of blaming the nationalist/republican side lay the blame where it should be.

How could you possibly prove that, 42 years after the fact? What should the British Government have done, leave innocent people to restore law and order, since the NI police had no further resources to do it themselves?. That certainly would not have happened.

If you dont know please let me explain something. The british troops were sent into protect the nationalist families that were being burnt out of their homes by the loyalist/unionists. They failed to do this due to a weak british government. And as for what you called the NI police force you should have said sectarian thugs re "The B Specials"

You are obviously biased and can't see straight. After all the years of violence in NI, what actually came of it all? Comparable peace came of it all (not accounting for the imbeciles who are trying to resurrect it), which is what could have happened from 1969; if only people could have seen sense and use the correct route for change. Of course all sides were at fault, but if they were smart enough, they could have used smarter tactics in using knowledge of the process and laws of Parliament against the government. There is no excuse for the riots and killings (from either side) that took place, no matter which side you support.

Biased? Possibly. Imbeciles trying to resurrect the troubles? They definitely are that. But the point i'm making is that if the nationalist/republican were given the basic human rights which were denied them by the loyalist/unionist regime then most of the troubles could have been avoided. The Official IRA were almost defunct and the nationalist community needed protection from the pogrom that was being carried out against them, therefore the provo's were born. therefore the blame can be laid on the british government backed regime and therefore the british government

As far as Northern Ireland is concerned, I don't think anyone can escape blame, but most importantly, when I think of all those souls that have been lost because of some ridiculous error of judgement or misplaced anger or retribution, it all pales into insignificant childishness; IMHO there can be no cause great enough to excuse such an abuse of humanity.

I agree with you Doe. If more of your countrymen were proud of where they are from, and if they weren't taught that love of country is wrong, then I doubt we'd see such mindless acts. I came on here to have the last laugh, sick of all of the pathetic anti-american comments; if more englishmen were like you, I wouldn't need to.

Ah, at last, a decent comment from UncleSame! There have never been mindless acts committed in the US? I don't mind anyone being proud of their country, but to be mindlessly proud is a very big mistake to make. I love and am proud of the country I live in, however, I will criticise mindless idiots who can potentially ruin it for the rest of us. It appears, blind loyalty is required by true US citizens. If you canít admit the problem, how on earth are you supposed to solve it.

Latest comment: What worries me is that the military is learning this to control civilians. I thought this was the job of the police force. I was under the impression that the military combats foreign powers who also have military gear and training. I am scared of one day living in a world where it is hard to distinguish between the police and the military.
