Reader comment on item: Europeans: From Venus?
in response to reader comment: The Historical Facts

I traveled to Thailand six months after 9/11. I was traveling by myself for the designated month that i would be in thailand and came across a guy from England. He too was traveling by himself, and in an unspoken sense we understood that it would be cheapest if we traveled together. Of course we talked and I ultimately asked him what he thought of Bush. His reply "I don't thing he knows what he's doing" ......I couldn't agree more. My reply, knowing how good of an ally England has been to America was "I hope your country doesn't get involved in what the U.S. was going to do."

Of course at the time I didn't know exactly what America was going to do .......but I knew we had a dumb president who had both senate and house control and a green light from the American public to do what he wanted. A scenario that was almost astrological in the sense of American history and it's fallibility. The United States greatly underestimated the somber complexity that is the middleast and its become a subsequent quagmiire since.

I 'm glad Europe has taken a stand against the U.S. in regards to Bush policy. I can't stand him either, and half our country agrees. I'm proud to be an American but am shamed by being under Bush........During WW2 the saying was " over paid, over sexed, and over here." Our reply in response to the British was "under paid, under sexed, and under Eisenhower. America could be proud then but I'm certainly ashamed to be affiliated to Bush......Shame on you fools who voted for him!
