It is a natural thing for us Europeans to begin having a negative sentiment towards the US. All this may change starting januari 2009 (although I have
a strange feeling something rather unexpected may happen, and it might take some more time before you get your new president, its just a feeling not a
I don't know how well educated you guys (us-citizens) are when it comes to European history (when it comes to my knowledge of the american civil war,
it reaches no further then a battle between south & north and some fight over slavery), but once there was a guy called Hitler, he was a screw-up, but
became the most powerfull man on the world for a brief time in history, he did this with teaching hate to his people, learning them to hate jews
because they had the money (and they did have the money). Now Hitler didn't exactly have the right answer to redistribute the jews money (they still
have the money) and all germans were bad and all of Europe felt guilty, we were so happy when america came to save our souls.
Once there was a guy called bush, he was a screw-up, buth he became the moste powerfull man on the world for a brief time in history, he did this by
teaching fear to his people, learning them to fear terrorists, telling them terrorists were all around (they are all around). Now bush didn't exactly
have the right answer to get the terrorists out of the way (they are still all around) and all us-citizens were bad (its not easy to be on the good
side when the good side ends up bombing children & innocent civilians), worst of all the US-citizens elected Bush twice.
When I was as a teenager I always wanted to be an American, it was the dream of every kid being educated from 7 years on that the good Americans came
to rescue us from the bad Nazis (when I was a kid I imagined all americans being Rambos killing every bad guy they met). Now when I'm 26 the
Americans are the only country I know that invaded another country since Irak invaded Kuwait. I don't know why Irak invaded Kuwait way back then, but
I doubt their reasons were worse then the US-reasons for invading Irak (are they still searching for those mass-destruct weaponary in Irak?).
litte note: I don't understand why the US troops didn't kill Sadam way back in the second gulf war, it couldn't have been that hard to kill him
after all you guys have the best trained special forces of the whole world (also the best equiped ones)
second note: How is it possible that they cannot trace & kill Osama after nearly seven years? Or would killing Osama make Bush loose his control over
the average, terrorist-fearing american.
It wasn't a smart thing for bush to say he is a war-president. I hope youre comming president will be a peace bringing president (but that would make
some christians believe he is the antichrist, oh irony :p ).
I do not think it is fair of us Europeans to think of the US as an evil empire, it is just a misleaded empire & I hope it ends soon. I also realize I
exagerated a bit (a lot :p), but sometimes exageration is needed to make a point.
