============================

It must not be forgotten the health of French nation has considerable
improved since August. The undoubted evidence for this is a much reduced
death rate amongst the elderly which will last for several years.

The same sort of statistics apply to other countries which suffered from the
heatwave but didn't bother to publish them, ie., for political reasons they
kept it secret.

The French government should be congratulated on its honesty as it should be
on other matters of international interest and importance.

Vive la France !  Vive l'Europe !

Hello, Reg

Well, I'm sure you'll get some flames on that comment, but it sure is nice
to hear some honesty once in a while.  I've read comments carried in news
organizations some years ago.  A number of Europeans were appalled by the
number of homeless in the United States.  Oh, some of the "conservatives"
have broadcast a lot of hot air and some folks will call anyone disagreeing
with their position "card - carrying - liberals", but the fact is there has
to be some reasonable compromise to keep as many folks happy as possible.
Also, it is necessary for any civilized nation to provide some level of
support for those citizens unable to take care of themselves.  Mind me, I am
not saying that we are or are not doing that toady.  However, it is
fortunate that we have a very powerful weapon here.  It is called the vote.
If enough folks get upset, it will show despite the 30 second sound bites
and handshaking LOL :)

I might inquire if you believe that the administration has been totally
honest in its' appraisal of Iraq's weapons of mass destruction.  Hmmm ... it
may indeed be honest; it may not.  All of the information is not in and I
doubt it ever will be.

Not all of Europe is our enemy, just France who wants to see us fail.

What's the difference? They both lied to their people so their invasion of Iraq would seem just.

What worries me is that in almost every country people are getting more and
more anti-american.
Only 15 years ago most there was a normal mixture of positive and negative
opinions, but it has become more and more negative, and since Bush 1 and 2
mentioning the word america to a non-US person generates a flood of
negativity.
For most people that is, exeptions here and there, but what would be the
reasons for that?
Personally I don't have such a primitive opinion, which is usualy just
based on black and white thinking, but the situation as a whole worries me,
I cannot see anything good coming out of it.

-Jeroen.

We are pretty bad at marketing ourselves.  One of the other problems
is that in many areas of the world, people expect their politicians to
never be truthful, and to always have a secret agenda, where for the
most part, we consider this to be the abnormal state.  Then end
result being, we tend to look at situations from a "best case scenario"
and the peoples of other countries tend to look at us from a "worst
case scenario".

Maybe it's something to do with posts like the original in this thread,
congratulating the death of 14000 non-Americans.  I assume the post was by
an American?

Many if not all of the agreements are from Americans.

The thread has a very "We and them" nature to it.

Is this typical of American feeling?

I think the general view of America and Americans by many non-Americans is
that of a nation full of (or least run by) selfish, arrogant people.  I
wonder why?

(I am not the type of person to cast judgement on an entire nation by my
experiences of a few from that nation - this is the general feeling I have
picked up from others)
