This is a reply to Lisa. How do you think we felt in France for having to face almost 3 years of relentless and primal French bashing on virtually all American media without being allowed to reply? If you want to have a taste of it just type "surrender monkey" on google. All this because we didn't kowtow to your government war plans and didn't buy the lies. Had you listened and followed our advice then and concentrate on Afghanistan you wouldn't be losing the war on terror.
To answer more directly your post, when someone critisizes my country I don't automatically feel the urge to raise the flag and put the chariots into a circle. I listen and I try to understand why he said that, before I make my opinion. You have to realize that quite a great number of people are thinking the US is going through some kind of autistic phase and has completely lost touch with the rest of us.
While travelling I met some of your countrymen who finally got it. When they travel abroad they tell the people they meet that they are Canadian ! This would never have been the case before Bush.
