You, sir, are positively vul-gah!

Here’s a shocker for ya: according to a recent poll, most folks in Britain view Americans as vulgar.  Gee, really?  Hmmm, I wonder why.

Most Britons see America as a cruel, vulgar, arrogant society, riven by class and racism, crime-ridden, obsessed with money and led by an incompetent hypocrite.  American troops are failing either to win “hearts and minds” in Iraq or bring democracy to that country.

Oh, that.  But of course this kind of news couldn’t hit the streets without the American embassy getting involved:

A spokesman for the American embassy said that the poll’s findings were contradicted by its own surveys.  “We question the judgment of anyone who asserts the world would be a better place with Saddam still terrorizing his own nation and threatening people well beyond Iraq’s borders.”

Jesus.  That tired old argument again?  Surely the American embassy can do better than to regurgitate the same peepeecaca that Bush’s ilk have been spewing for the last few years, but perhaps not.  Oh, and of course their survey findings were pro-war.  AS IF we’d expect them to cough up anything else.

  1. It’s not necessarily the embassy’s fault there. I was reading up on what it takes to become a diplomat and one of the questions that’s asked of potential people is something along the line of “Even if you don’t agree with the administration’s views would you still support them?” Now, we both know what the answer is if you want a job with them.

  2. Sure Saddam was evil, but they proved he had no weapons of mass destruction. Saddam wasnt a very nice man, but he kept control of his country. Bush (and Blair) deciding to keep troops there has just wasted many a young life. The country is in chaos, all for some of that sweet, sweet crude.
