Hi! I live in Detroit but often I have to make business trips to Europe. And you know, indeed, therere fine places, affable and approachable people excellent services. Almost everythings just like here in the US except, maybe, their policy, or to put it straight, their politicians . Take, for example, Sweden (currently presiding in the EU). Its leadership has been trying to [charter97. org/en/news/2009/7/20/20239/] mend up the ties with Belarusian President Lukashenko of late. Just in case you dont know yet, [europeanbelarus. org/en/news/2009/4/18/492/] Europeans call him the last dictator of Europe [/url]. Its been pretty long since our politicians realized that [washingtonpost. com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/03/24/AR2006032400942.html] dealing with him is disrespectful to ourselves. Btw [charter97. org/en/news/2009/8/14/21057/] we have not backtracked so far, while Europeans led by Sweden seem to have spat upon democratic principles! Anyway, neither you nor I can do anything about it, but our politicians might play hardball till those highbrow democrats balled everything up.
