Patriotic semiconductor

by Volker Weber

While the New York Post, hardly a very respected paper, advises patriotic Americans to no longer consume Made-in-Weasel-land products, the Christian Science Monitor gives us an example of some real patriotic cleansing.

I think it might be a good idea to then return a certain symbol back to the people of France. It would no longer be suitable anyway.

Rumor has it that some clever folks actually did contemplate just that: FedEx "it" back, shipping and handling to be paid by the receiver ;-)

Here in the States, it's easy to get lost in a U.S.-centric view of the world. And the media is certainly participating in the drum-up-the-war chanting (though whether or not this is a Good Thing depends on one's viewpoint about such involvement... a matter I'd rather not get into).

However, in all the anti-France commentary, there's one thing I haven't encountered: any statistics about how the French people here. The news media reports on the percentage of Americans who support Bush, etc. But what percentage of the French agree with the politicians' assertions?

(Am I making a mistake by asking this here?)

Do you mean, how many French support their government, Esther?

There is an article in Expaticia, which says 86% of the French support Chirac's position on Iraq.

(Sorry, a typo creapt in there - for Expaticia, read Expatica)

No, Esther, you are not making a mistake. It is always good to ask. :-) There is always a good way to evade the US centric view by reading the BBC News Channels. John has them on his blog.
