They hate us just because...
Tom Fenton on CBS said anti-Americanism is on the rise in Britain as well as Germany and France. He then went on to say that its like the seven year itch, they hate us periodically just because...

Nothing said about us doing anything wrong in Iraq, nothing about Iraq at all in this story. The White House must be very happy.

1. He needs to come here. Germans will give him a list of valid reasons
on why they are quite angry with the American government and some of her people.

6. Trust me. They're keeping track here.
I've yet to meet a German who will ask about my religion (or lack thereof) but they have almost all asked if I support Bush.

7. I'd sacrifice popularity, if they'd ever just do the right thing.
After 4 years and counting, they still haven't.

11. I'm a concerned german
and it's nearly the same like our so called collectively guilty after Hitlers KZ's.

We know, that we must accuse Bush an the PNAC-Junta for misleading the US. But you, the brave american citizens, have to do the work.

14. Thx!
I'm proud to share this great Web-Site with you all!

Go on DU'ers! You'll make me hope again, that there was resistance and brain against the Bushies!
And your fear, that the world will hate you, isn't right. I can assure you that I can differentiate between the corporate driven nearly facist acting corrupt governnance and the "normal" people.

12. Of course he's surprised. The news media doesn't tell anybody
what the hell is really going on. EXCEPT overseas the media tells ALL. They hate us because they "get it."
