Thank You America (english)

Ladies and Gentlemen,
Germany's unity would not have been possible without the solidarity and support offered by the United States, by the American people and in particular, by the 41st President, George Herbert Walker Bush.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Germany's unity would not have been possible without the solidarity and support offered by the United States, by the American people and in particular, by the 41st President, George Herbert Walker Bush.
Today, as we celebrate the eleventh anniversary of our national unity, we say thank you to America. Three weeks ago, on September 12, I sent a letter to many of you, and I would like to quote from this letter now:

"My Dear German Compatriots, German-Americans in the United States and guests of the Embassy reception on the Day of German Unity:

This year, the Day of German Unity comes at a difficult time for the American people.

On the Day of German Unity, we want to show our solidarity with the American people and with the victims of the horrific attack on September 11. Together with our American friends, we mourn this terrible and senseless loss of life.

On September 11, a number of Germans lost their lives at the WTC, certainly the highest number of victims of any terrorist attack in German history. As our hearts go out to all those who have lost loved ones in this country, we also think of the German victims and their families.

Thank You Germany (english)
10 Mar 2003
Thanks Ambassador,

The friendship of America and Germany goes back many, many years.

The bloodshed of Sept 11 was senseless and horrific!

Now the Bush Administration is poised on the brink of committing a war against Iraq, under the pretext of avenging 9/11.

Nothing could be farther than the truth. Bush is using this as an excuse to wage an immoral war of empire.

As one of millions of Americans, I want to thank Germany for it's clear stance re: this war.

Germany can show it's appreciation and friendship to the United States in no better way then by maintaining its opposition to this war.

In doing so not only, if successful, will you save unknown numbers of American lives, as well as Iraqi. You will be helping insure that the world is a safer place in the future. By preventing this war, there will be less, not more, terrorist events in the future.

Again, as an American, I want to thank Germany (and France, Russia, and China) for its strong stance against this immoral, unnecessary, and dangerous war. Please do not mistake the Bush administration for the desire for peace of the American people. Bush will likely not be president in two year, however, the American people will remember our true allies, who tried, and hopefully succeeded in stopping this war.

I WANT TO THANK FRANCE ALSO.
THANKS FOR MAKING ME THINK ABOUT WHAT I BUY NOW AND WHERE IT IS PRODUCED. GOING TO WAR WITHOUT FRANCE IS LIKE GOING HUNTING WITHOUT AN ACCORDIAN. ALOT OF EXCESS BAGGAGE.
BOYCOTT THESE FOREIGN GOODS.
return that damned statue of liberty (english)
13 Mar 2003
Oh yes yes yes. While we stuff ourselves with freedom fries, let's not forget that the statue of liberty was given to us by none other than.... the French! Horror! I say we return the damned thing as more "excess baggage" that the USA does not need! Think of it: we could melt the old girl down and build some BOMBS! Liberty bombs! Oh YEAH! America! America! America! Maybe we can replace her with a statue of Hitler, telling the wretched refuse of the world to stay away from our lily white shores.
