    LOL .. do u want them to held a referendum? The surveys r based on specific number of ppl from every race, religion and class..
    So it was a small sample from a few democratic and free countries in the world...?

    When it comes to the variable attitudes of the entire world, don't chuck figures at me.

    So because they dont travel they are bad people?
    Again Lawz, do not put words in my mouth.

    They produce 25% of the world pollution and 25% of the worlds GDP.
    But the GDP isn;t produced evenly amongst the populatio. And it's the US lifesyle of the US population which produced the high pollution levels.

    They start the most wars? Very simplistic view.
    Not really. They've invaded umpteen countries for their own selfish reasons.

    They supported dictators? That does nothing to differentiate them from any other country in the world.
    They support(ed) more dictators than anyone else, and also claim to be the bigest spreaders of democracy and morality at the same time.

    To begin with that only one congressman's son was in Iraq. It was a complete lie. There were others... though I cant be bothered to list them.
    So small lies, nothing about the hard facs of bushes history, the links with the saudis, the US contracters and the Iraqi misery.

    I would say that is far from true though... I found almost every american I have met while living in the US to be overly fond of the British.
    sorry to be mean, but what u say can be untrue..

    As a nice example of Moore's manipulation of the truth:

    "Fahrenheit Fact no. 6: Moore distorts Bush "vacation days"
    Moorelies.com has an article about how the "vacation days" were calculated:


    It's obvious that these "vacation days" include weekends. (You can do the math: 250/x=42/100; x=595 days=1.63 years). Okay, 42% is a lot of vacation, but weekends account for 29% of our time. I'm sure that a lot of this "vacation" time is just Bush going to Camp David for the weekend. Can we really fault the President for going to Camp David on weekends? If you take out weekends, you get 42%-29%, or 13% of the time that Bush was on vacation.

    Okay, this is still a lot, although 13% looks a lot better than 42%. Over a year, 13% is about 6.76 weeks of the year--which is still much more than most of us. But we know that Bush's vacations are generally working vacations. For example, he has hosted visits from leaders like Putin, Fox, and many others there. This hardly seems like a real vacation.

    As Hitchens points out today, there are a lot of problems with Fahrenheit 9/11. It's pretty clear that Moore's "vacation time" allegation is one of them."

    The American's don't exactly love us. "Limey brown toothed tea sipping morons" appears to be the average opinion towards those from Britain.
    What nonsense. Britain is considered to be the main American ally by an overwhelming majority of Americans. Blair has an ~85% approval rating over here. Anything British is automatically considered to be better than anything American.

    Of course it can.. but when it comes to the opinion of Americans all we have is anecdotal evidence. I lived in the US for almost a year, so my anecdotal evidence has more weight than those who have only been there to see Epcot.

    Is it conclusive? No - of course not ... but then what is?
