Reader comment on item: Something Rotten in Denmark?
in response to reader comment: Will Europe be darkened?

Dear Danish American,
Your comments are always direct and honest, and I like them.
Yes its tiring. I respect the job of your father. A soldier will fight for his country when ordered by his leaders- thats patriotism and believe you me, I have nothing to say against the military personnel of your country.

You said that if your country attacks other country its bad and if it doesn't help other states in need, still they're considered bad. But thats not true. Your country had a great reputation before the second world war, before 'the lion woke up'. When the countries in Europe fighting each other, your country remained neutral and that was great. You have many things to be proud of- a vast land, land of individuality and freedom, land of opportunity. Your bill or rights remain a source of great encouragement for people fighting for rights and liberty. But see which way this great country is going now.

Ok, may be the 'way' is unavoidable if you consider your national security. But at the same time, try to view things from the perspectives of the other side. This will not make things better, I know, but it will surely make a difference.
