Fact 1: The attack happened on US soil.
Fact 2: The US has been the greatest liberator and defender of freedom
in the history of the world.
Fact 3: Mozdev was created by US citizens, was born and lives in the US.
Fact 4: The US has spent more money on humanitarian efforts than any
other country in the world.
So I'm sure the "certain political feeling" you are feeling is one of
I'm sick and tired of all the US bashing I see and hear abroad. We don't
like to discuss non developer issues on this list, but quite honestly
this type of wining gets me nauseous. The US flag is not a political
symbol, it is a symbol of this great country and the beacon freedom it
upholds for the rest of the world.
I don't see a flag there now, so I guess Chris or someone already pulled
it down. I would prefer it there.
