It would appear that friend Bill either hasn‘t read any of the responses, or has completely failed to understand them. By the way Bill, I have 2 nephews currently serving with the USMC in Iraq.

Hey Gunnar - right on the mark.  I mean really, watch "Talking to Americans" some time.  You go to Washington, ask some questions about Canada and then laugh at the guys who don‘t know the answers.  

He**, if you went to downtown Peterborough, I bet you‘d get some answers just as stupid as they get in Washington.

And yes, I am sure I am exaggerating about that last point, but but if you went to downtown Ottawa and asked questions about Mexico, you‘d have a million Sonorans split a gut on Tuesday night when it aired down there.

As to anti-Americanism, it might be useful for us to face it.  It‘s a mile wide throughout Canadian society.  I think I am pretty much more accepting of American policy than most Canadians, yet, I have to admit I kinda liked seeing Denmark dump Team USA at the world hockey championship (heh, heh, heh).  Anti americanism is our dirty little secret and I think if we just admitted it, we could get a lot of it out of our system and get on with being adults on the international stage.

How‘s that for mixing metaphors.
