:baby4: This sounds so whiney and condescending, it's hard to imagine this is a state official speaking. I wonder how the Brits can tolarate such nonesense from the Germans. http://news.independent.co.uk/europe/story.jsp?story=636555 Okay, Yoda. How about those German kids which are growing up hating America, and call Bush a Nazi? Can you explain how that can go in Germany? Well, it was either that or Wiener-Shnitzel. At least he wasn't elected, or anything. I mean imagine a country electing a president based on solely his rhetoric against like, America, say. Ring a bell, Germany? Excuse me, you mean we didn't conquer the West? Or Nazism wasn't defeated by the Allies? Man, what history books do the Germans read these days??? Learning from the past, and not dwelling on it, is what makes a country great. When will Germany admit that perhaps it's still not perfect, nor deserve bragging rights over its behavior, especially when it comes to countries who are playing a responsible, leadership role in the world today, like Britain. What gives them the right to lecture us when all they do is run and hide and elude the global responsibilities they are required by natural law to either assume, or let others pull their weight for them. When are THEY going to stop dwelling on their past, and GET OVER IT.
