You seem to be on a mission to prove that I only harbor negative viewpoints of america. This is my perception of it anyways, and I am personally offended. I'm sure when clinton was in office, you didn't have many nice things to say about him or his administration (much of that I can understand btw) but I can just about guarantee that regardless of your dislike for him, that did not change your feelings about america or your fellow countrymen. All I'm trying to ask here is to realise that this is no different. I don't like bush - he scares the hell out of me. I love this country and I hate what is happening to it. I have a right to express my opinion. I can discuss this with you in a civilised manner. Please try not to be so snide in your remarks.
I missed your response to the czech-slovak anti-chemical unit.

Sorry if I sound more concerned about our soldiers and civilians than I do about our gov's reputation.
Which country are you referring to as an example?
This could be any country. How about the UK? Actually it was Gospel that first expressed these feelings to me. I didn't refer to any specific action/inaction - just the basic feelings involved.
Two wrongs do not make something right.
Exactly my point. I happen to believe in the golden rule here - treat others as you would have them treat you. If I don't like getting bashed because I am american, I will not bash others based on their nationality. It's wrong, and I won't participate in this. I will express my opinions concerning politics and policies - but I really try to abstain from generalizing this to the population as a whole.
It is our right and freendom to boycott anything we choose. Is that wrong?
It's your choice to do so. However, I think this is all a over-reaction. I certainly don't want anyone boycotting our products just because Bush is an idiot.
To which stereotype are you referring, anti-war implies anti-Americanism?
No, the stereotype of ignorant, arrogant americans that is so often brought up here.
those people tow the line with Bush without question.
I think you know what I'm talking about here. Didn't you say earlier on this thread that Saddam is abetting our enemy because there are al qaeda cells in Iraq (which btw, are in the UN protected safe-zone. ) Just because Bush says it's true we are supposed to believe it.
Do you understand my point?
Dolf, I've expressed that point over and over. Every country looks out for it's own self-intrests. All politicians lie and spin things to make their motives sound pure. I've said over and over, it's all a game. Should I put this in my signature to remind you where I stand?
