Europe isnīt much better, our elites support every american war and its neo- imperalism, because our companies and so our economy take profit ... Germany is the first or second export nation.

I donīt have anything against jews and wouldnīt have any problem to live with a jew - religious or not - in the same house or as a friend, but zionism is a dangerous ideology and itīs a fact that zionists play an important role in policy, economy (There are countless buisinessmen, banker and manager, who support Israel and the american war machine) and unfortunately in the big media corporations.

By the way in Russia itīs the same. Most of this famous "oligarchs" - among them some in jail - are zionist supporters

Americans confusion regarding Australia and Austria is a documented fact, as caught on tape in this rather embarrassing incident.

You do realize that some Aussies are "embarrassed" by the "put another "shrimp" on the barbie" slogan right? We call them prawns here and Paul Hogan (who coined the phrase in an advertising campaign back in the day) used shrimp instead of prawn because it was felt that Americans wouldn't know what a prawn was. Given the representations of Australians that Americans have been offered over the years I think I prefer it when an American thinks I'm from Austria. Sure beats them thinking I wrestle crocodiles on the weekend or that I have a pet kangaroo in the back yard. It's all in good fun though. We have plenty of geographically challenged people here and I figure that Lloyd Christmas as a character is as much a "typical American" as I am a typical Crocodile Dundee/Kath & Kim Australian!

Nice to see how much Germany has progressed

I'm not the biggest fan of Israel or AIPAC, but many many of our wars or Russia's having nothing to do with them. I doubt Zionists much cared about Noriega either way or Kosovo or on the Russian side Chechnya. Afghanistan wasn't even really a threat to Israel.

I know the German Defense industry is closely tied to the US in many ways... In High School the father of a friend was always going to Europe on business and he worked for a Defense Contractor...

I personally wouldn't mind of people stopped calling the United States the "Greatest Country" all it does is raise expectations...

America was in the news on one of my trips to Germany... people were protesting American closing some US military installation in Germany stating America was crippling the German Economy

It really is a case of wanting to have it both ways...

Part of the problem on both sides is that so much of the information is filtered or biased...

California has had lead free gasoline and Catalytic Converters since 1973 and it was pointed out to me how pro environment the Germans were because they were mandating it 25 years later... NO ONE knew that CA had been doing this for a generation...

I always look forward to reconnecting with friends and we can have some spirited debates... there is always something new to learn...

I think it proves you are perhaps taking some posts too literal for starters. Secondly, I find it ammusing the people who ***** the most are probably least likely to be the poeple doing anything to help.

What do you do to improve US health care and lessen US aggression?

I'm interested!

I had a friend visit from Germany. One day we took a long drive along rural roads. What neither of us liked was the many places where people had dumped unwanted items, such as sofas, old stoves, tires, and various garbage.
