“All I will say to any Americans on here who will doubtless scream at me for defending the NHS, is that you neednt concern yourselves with it. Fight your own politicians for the 100% privatized healthcare system that you all want in your country, the British NHS is not your problem.”
You miss the point, which leads to your comparison to the US army being off target. They spent 15 minutes of the olympic opening ceremony lionizing the NHS.
Had the US olympic opening ceremony spent 15 minutes glorifying the US army, that would most likely have raised some eyebrows as well.
Did you read the post I was responding to? The one in quotes is not the right one.
