    I saw where Kerry is blasting Bush on this yet it is funny....

    The Byrd Amendment was passed in 2000 as the Dumping and Subsidy Offset Act of 2000. And it was DEMOCRATS that pushed it through.....

    Continued Dumping and Subsidy Offset Act of 2000 (the CDSOA or Byrd Amendment)

    Lets see if i understand this. It hurts the Europeans too much to have sanctions against Preliberated Iraq, yet its not going to hurt Europe to put sanctions against the United States....are they just stupid?

    well ask an easy question, get an easy answer

    I think the EU is dreaming. We would be able to survive sanctions imposed by them. I am not sure they could though.

    I'm sure those sanctions will be enforced just like all of the other sanctions europe has passed.

    Does it help Kerry!?!


    Ohhh! SCARY!

    That's like 1 /73,333th of total US GDP.

    Or 1 /5,000th of total American exports.

    Did someone say Airbus?

    A good point PJ. Either way, they have increased their agressiveness in the Global politco against the US recently. This only furthers NewGuy's theory on the EU.

    Does the EU really want to get into a trade war with the world's strongest economy?
