Quite recently. Takes a lot to bring it down. That was not the case in 2003
when most of the whole world was demonstrating against the invasion of Irak
and Americans were all for it. They still would be if it was not for the
falling job market and all the billions invested under the auspices of lies
and the minimal deaths on the US side.

Even in the last election, they did not vote for a real alternative.

Sure, percentage in favor will continue to go down. Guess what. The USA will
be still doing the same in 10 years from now if they have sufficient money to
do it. Convincing people ? By choice or by force.

People should express themselves much more clearly.

Say you live in Boston. Say there's a study showing that Boston if a very
violent city, worldwide. Say that you live a peaceful life and never had any
problems whatsoever. Won't you be tempted to say, nay, Boston ain't a
violent city at all ? That would be not getting it.

There's not an awful good choice to start with anyways.

What with people in the south of France ? Are you referencing the Maghrebian
population ? Or the people in the mountains of Switzerland ? I've never
heard they were particularly dumb.

Now, if what you meant were Belgians... ;-)))))))))))

OK, 'twas nice to make a short detour on culture, politics and other
interests, and I admire the list to tolerate this. Now these topics should
nevertheless come to an end shortly, I think.
