I'm a bit out of the loop, I've been on the road for awhile now, and I'm currenty in a country where nobody speaks English. I haven't heard the
recent new Re: Khadafi, but there was a decade or so where he was hardly mentioned. As for Lockerbie, there are some suspicious concerning his direct
involvment in that. I'm not saying I'd like to have him over for dinner and share an afternoon stroll in the park with him!
The Brits have a long standing feud with the French, and that's understandable considering their history. I'd say drop it already, but there are
still a lot of WW2 tensions around, even in the younger generations.
But seriously, arrogance? Americans can hardly claim to be less arrogant than the French.
AS I've said, I've been on the road, travelling in many countries. I've talked to people from all walks of life, much, much more than 10 or 20.
I'm astounded at how unpopular the Americans have become. I don't think they really realize it. In this country I have trouble until I assure people
I'm not American, I have to sometimes go to the trouble of flashing my passport to prove it. It's amazing how their attitude changes towards me
after they find out I'm not from the States.
I really have to go now, the damn bathroom is locked. Be back tomorrow.
