Not just English/European soccer thugs

So football thuggery doesn't seem to be confined to European fans let alone just the English. This is quite shocking...

It does raise interesting questions about nationalism or patriotism in the UK though. China will be the global power of the next century, I am sure, and it seems ironic that as we in Europe seem to want to erode national identities more and more we will be pitting ourselves against such nationalistic feeling. I strongly believe in co-operation between nations, but at the same time national pride is important as it's a key factor in what binds us together as a community and helps motivate us to work for the 'common good'.
