One American (from Texas) would like to apologize to the rest of the world for my country (which I love) having allowed this gang of idiots in Washington to hijack our government, our military, and our good name. There really are decent people in America, unlikely as that might seem of late, and we are going to vote these neocon cretins out in November. If not, I just may emigrate, as Willi Brandt did during the Nazi era. He loved his country, but he loved freedom and democracy more--my situation exactly. Please, wish us decent Americans good fortune--we need it!
The Americans came to realise that they would have to either leave the region or weaken their presence there. It is Russia that is filling the vacuum now
