    The other day on this message board, I disagreed with the common refrain that Bush is the main reason for anti Americanism abroad. I said that there is a lot more to it than that. Anti Americanism in Europe predates the Bush Presidency by many years, if not decades. Far beneath the superficial relationship that Europe has with Bush, the reasons for anti Americanism pertain to fundamental social and economic differences between Europeans and Americans. These differences are expressed by European educational systems. While attending school, I have lived in Asia and Europe; in particular Shanghai and Munchen. The anti Americanism I observed was far more intense in Europe than in Asia. These attitudes, contrary to popular belief, have not much to do with Bush. Sure he is a “cowboy,” and compared to the elitists in European universities (and American universities for that matter), “inarticulate and not very bright.” But that is just icing on an anti American cake that has been baking for decades. For those who think electing the American Left in November 2008 will offer a respite from generally increasing anti Americanism abroad, think again:

    It is for more than one reason that economists often maintain that America's future pertains especially to its relationships in Asia.

    Naw, I think Bush is just a fuckin' idiot and the world recognises, as you do, that fact. To use him as an excuse for American ignorance is at very least dishonest on your part. But, carry on.

    What an unbelievably dimwitted remark. Typical of your brainless and hateful responses. You do not call yourself Psycho for nothing. It fits perfectly.

    "brilliant and typically thoughtful. did you even read the articles nitwit?"

    I won't return the neg rep feature for you but you expose yourself for the fraud that you are.

    I regret that the board limits the number of times I can neg rep your wasted posts. You excrete some of the most foul posts on this board and anyone who can read sees that. You are just a low-life troll looking for a fight.

    Discuss the topic? What a joke. Look at your moronic response to my first two posts. What's to discuss? Your abuse of language? The single, lonely brain cell rattling around in your empty head?

    Why would I find it even complimentary advisable to debate with a jerk that uses his neg reps for argument?


    Kiss my ass, 1donny, and go to hell, too.

    That's one hell of a big sweeping generalisation. Hmmmm, just social and economic, huh? Wow.

    Political? Nah.
    Historical? Nah.
    Language? Nah.
    Cultural? Nah.
    Religious? Nah.
    Environmental? Nah.

    So it all comes down to the way they teach economics in France. Who'da thought?
