    I was pissing about on the net and found this site: www.thankyoutony.

    It's a site where Americans can leave messages of thanks for the support Tony gave them during the war. Some of the messages are brilliant take the following:

    You ROCK!

    You should consider moving to Texas. Also, I absolutely love your Frosted Flakes cereal.

    Keep up the good work.

    - Texas, USA


    Not quite sure what Frosties have to do with it... but have a look at the sight and have a giggle.

    I'm sorry I do not know the correct way to formally address the head of state for Great Britain.

    Shall we tell this poor misguided fool Tony couldn't be further from being the head of state for Great Britain? Thank god.

    How hilarious!!! Only Americans would do something like that!!! I might go and ask my American housemate her opinion of Tony Blair, I might get an answer as hilarious as that (she's a proper annoying yank). Head of State? Tony wishes!!!

    As an American I must say that I am also greatful towards Tony, but not for the resons you might think. I don't support the War on Iraq, but I do beleive Tony did what he could to make it a more humane war (if there is such a thing). If it had not been for Tony, Bush would never even have talked with the UN.

    Yankees are usually the most sensible of Americans IMHO (hehe, i'm one though, so I guess I'm biased). I can't help but feel somewhat insulted as the Americans in the video you took the examples from clearly are Texans, Rednecks, loonies etc. rather than Yankees.
