Perhaps they should realize that we want a leader of our own country. Alienation is a two way street. You can't sit there, pointing at Bush and cry "he is alienating us" when your own hands are dirty.

Hmm. Does that make us divided? No. No. We are not divided. Nice to know you were united for the game, but as with everything soon everything gets back to normal. Watch and see.

Exactly. It's a two-way street, as is everything else.

Oh, I think we're schooling Europeans.

And my friend: the UN didn't allow the invasion. And if Hussein was ample warned he did what he had to do: nothing. CAUSE IT WAS PROVED THEY DIDN'T HAVE WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION!
yes, if you say that SH must comply with many, many UN-passed resolutions or else he will be invaded, then that country has options available to it that might prevent an attack.

the same cannot be said of 9-11. and be careful: i know people who died in the WTC, and i know people who ran out of that building.

you're also running on thin ice when you start defending a homocidal dictator.

Bottom-line, America can't and shouldn't bend to your will. We are not weak. Why do you want us weak? How will that benefit you? Then you hope you will be strong? That's not how it works. Then we'll all just be weak, and defenseless.

this is a good point. there's a tendency on the part of the US to say, "well if you don't like us, we don't like you." it's bad for business on both sides, however much i might sympathize with european concerns.

you were defending Saddam Hussein, a homocidal dictator. Bush, terrible as he may be, was democratically elected.

your equivocations are increasingly desperate.

Am i deffending Hussein? Hmmmm yes, i guess i am...

The ROW reads and understands what we read and the news were clear even b4 the US invaded Iraq: there wasn't no weapons of mass destruction (the excuse used to invade Iraq). I guess in America ppl don't get to read those news...

I have to say that I absolutely LOVE Americans. I love how we stick together even if we don't always agree, no matter how opposite we may be on some things...I really do.

When it comes right down to it, Americans WILL stick together and fight for each other if we have to. It is an American phenomenon that we've seen many times before, and it's amazing.

agreed. he makes life for those of us who are against Bush, against the invasion of Iraq, and for greater multilateralism on the part of the US much more difficult.

U2_Guy: you're not helping the cause! back up your assertions with fact and reason! you're heart is in the right place, but your arguments cannot be sustained!
