Respectfully disagree; it gets a bit heavyhanded by the end but overall I enjoyed this more than many other recent featured articles. Thanks to all who worked on it! --Raxvulpine 18:43, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

Alas, yes, it really does need a mention that the national anthem is King Missile's Detachable Penis.

And that, contrary to recent reports on the state of the US education system, male American high school students are quite proficient at locating the United States on a map by finding a warm Canadian girl and going south. BorisOfAmerica 20:04, 7 August 2008 (UTC)

edit Dead Soldiers

GET RID OF THAT NOW! How is that in any way funny or amusing? What the hell is wrong with you? If you hate America thats fine, but using pictures of dead soldiers for amusement is just wrong and immoral.


Agreed. Completely inappropriate and very offensive. I know this the Uncyclopedia, by that cross the lined.

In fact, I somewhat agree. The picture, in its current context, is quite disrespectful to those soldiers that gave their lives fighting for some kind of cause. But to speak in Uncyclopedia's defense, America really had it coming.

I agree. The picture of the dead soldiers needs to be removed. I can handle a lot, but this is taking it too far. The picture of the dead soldiers...well. It's not funny. I would never expect to see any soldier going home in that manner (no matter his nationality or the country he returned to) to be ridiculed in this way. I respectfully ask that the picture be removed and replaced.

edit Writers should try harder

MrN9000 makes a drive by comment (translated into American)

I've read this article twice now and I just don't find it very funny. Sure it is a great turn about on American obesity and eating problems but I would think people would try harder and use a funnier topic. I just think the people that wrote this copped out and could have used a much better starting point of satire about America.

So don't read it. And, if you want to have a say in what is featured versus what is not featured, I encourage you to vote on VFH. Cheerio.-Sir Ljlego, GUN VFH FIYC WotM SG WHotM PWotM AotM EGAEDM ANotM + (Talk) 01:37, 13 March 2008 (UTC)

edit Dead Soldiers

Seriously how is the soldiers not deleted yet? I'll go post a different picture on Britian with the same subtitles and see what people say. no

What the fuck is your problem? Is this picture honestly FUNNY to you? You think this shit is funny? Show some fucking respect. Tribulation 03:06, 13 March 2008 (UTC)

It doesn't necessarily follow that humour is or needs to be "FUNNY", in the case of satire for example it can be biting and thought-provoking. However in the context of this article I DO find it funny, what I don't find amusing, and do think is a total lack of respect is American (and UK for that matter) foreign policy that makes us believe its perfectly acceptable to invade and hold a sovereign nation against the wishes of most of the people there on the pretext of WMDs that never really existed or to "free" the people from an oppressive government (whilst at the same time ignoring other nations far more oppressive to indigenous people of that area (Israel, China/Tibet, and the good ol' USA itself)} though if Oil were found in Tibet that might change. Respect, has to be earned. -- Sir Mhaille  Icons-flag-gb (talk to me)
If you have a problem, then satire the government without inadvertently making fun of the brave men and women at war. The picture must be taken down.
Yes it takes a lot of bravery to gun down innocent women and children who can't fight back. My relative was tortured and shot by your "brave" US soldiers for looking angry at them. The preceding unsigned comment was added by 76.69.65.180 (talk • contribs)
As it happens, sometimes things that we don't like to hear tend to be looked upon as in bad taste or somehow heretical. Yes, I have deep sympathies for the families of the victims of the US' overzealous attempts to impose itself onto the world. I have a heart, albeit one that has been held in a stranglehold by my failure to hug it every day. I think the greatest way to honor those who bravely went into the military is to make the people who put them into the line of fire accountable for doing so in any way possible.
The mockery here is not of the soldiers who died, but instead of the government and military which, quite bluntly, sees them as "consignments of meat" and nothing more. Harsh, sure. But true? Absolutely.~~ Sir Ljlego, GUN  [talk] 18:42, 31 May 2008 (UTC)
What LJ said, far more diplomatically than I. -- Sir Mhaille  Icons-flag-gb (talk to me)

That is not funny at all. Whoever posted that is a faggot piece of shit. I mean if it wuz about them arabs it'd be fun but this are bad taste because you don't make fun of AMERICA and its army otherwise its gay. Duh.


GET RID OF IT. It is in horrible taste. If you have a dislike for the government, then express without disparaging the men and women overseas. It is disgraceful that anyone can justify the appearance of that image and its caption.

As explained above, the picture and its caption aren't making fun of soldiers. It's mocking the US Government's lack of respect for those soldiers. Bush sent the troops in to harm's way based on some bullshit about WMD's which was easily disprovable. That's what the article is mocking. Not the troops themselves. I think we've made that quite clear in our comments here. --THE 03:48, 22 March 2009 (UTC)

Regular edition! Americans still think they're inviolable gods that earn respect from the entire planet just for being Americans. On page 160, ofcourse, since it's not really news. Free copy like always! PPP 08:52, November 4, 2011 (UTC)

edit American People and Shit

America is full of fat slobs who spend most of there time playing computer games like Grand Theft Auto or Doom. Most of todays shit has come from america like KFC and Macdonalds. America have got nothing to be proud of apart from Global Warming and Beyonce who has won countless attention due to the size of her ass. Here is a list of things America has &@$%ed up over the years

Unlike your country, which is full of illiterate and closed-minded buffoons who spend THEIR time fucking around on the Internet and pretending they're (see that apostrophe? Yeah, we use those) important.~~ Sir Ljlego, GUN  [talk] 16:59, 6 July 2008 (UTC)

And what country are you from, I wonder...?

Mini America -or rather a subdivision of your efforts, or put another way another cog in the brutal attempt at complete vertical integration which your magnificent country is so famous for--Sycamore (Talk) 12:58, 6 July 2008 (UTC)

edit Why????

Why is there an article about America on Uncyclopedia? If everyone hates an article it is deleted, this article is called America, everyone hates America, America should be deleted. --Phantom-Lord 02:22, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

I will present my answer in script form:
ME: Does America exist?
AUDIENCE: Yes!
ME: Can it be deleted?
AUDIENCE: No!
ME: Does Phantom-Lord's argument make any logical sense whatsoever?
AUDIENCE: No! [camera zooms up close on one audience member] In fact, the nonsensical nature of the query leads one to question the very worthiness of the world to continue existing. [member next to him shoots self]
Do you really want that on your conscience?~~ Sir Ljlego, GUN  [talk] 21:54, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

edit America: The Song

I used a quote from Neil Diamond's "America" and I thought it was funny. Could you use quotes from that song?MrCleveland 12:38, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

edit Picture

I think this picture should be added

Death poster

These people want America destroyed


--Bane the Henchman 22:26, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

edit Dead Soldiers

Yeah, Could you take the pic down of the fallen soldiers. Whatever the stance is on the iraq war, those soldiers sacrificed for the country. remember, leaders are supposed to be the indirect representation of their people in a democratic society. it is the action of the people to correct this when it fails.

V

The article isn't disrespecting the soldiers in any way. It's targeting the inept American leaders who sent those soldiers in to die based on faulty intelligence and got us stuck in an endless, pointless war. --THE 15:09, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

Dead Soldiers

While I understand, and do respect, the sarcasm and satire of the photo of the dead soldiers, I would like to respectfully ask that the photo be replaced with a photo of living soldiers. The dead soldiers photo is hurtful to those whom have sacrificed their lives for their country and for those whom bear the greatest burden of that sacrifice. The nationality of the soldiers doesn't matter, my opinion would be the same regardless, it's still insulting.

If your intent is to insult the government there are hundreds of ways that can be done that isn't so hurtful, if you are attempting to hold them accountable for the death of these men...I honestly think you are in the wrong forum.

I want to repeat, this is not a point of saying Dead American Soldiers Should Not Have Their Death's Satrized rather this is me saying Dead Soldiers Should Not Have Their Death Satrized. They are men and women who, for the sake of the country they live in, have offered their lives up and that needs to be remembered and respected.

I repeat, I respectfully ask that this photo be removed and replaced. Thank you. --140.211.179.21 13:33, March 26, 2011 (UTC)Lady of Spring Rain

I'll do it since no one else has the testicles to. God bless the U.S. armed forces. Yeah, I said GOD bless the U.S. armed forces. I find it disrespectful not to say it. I agree with an IP for once. --Gamma287 Tro-lo-no 069f11-1 MUN Icons-flag-us ☭Tetяis? 05:01, August 6, 2011 (UTC)

Many of our country articles do not have an infobox. They do not especially add much and many articles are better without such distractions.--Sycamore (Talk) 12:56, October 11, 2012 (UTC)
