Smelly Foreign Leftists Allege United States Located In North America

Here's a AP picture that Yahoo just published of some strange, unpleasant people in a far-away land. The caption reads:

An activist reacts as she sees other colleagues as they tried to get near the U.S. embassy in Manila Saturday, Aug. 19, 2006. The leftwing demonstrators are denouncing the alleged U.S. support for Israel during the war in Lebanon. Some of the protesters were arrested later. (AP Photo/Aaron Favila)

Now, here are some of the other murky allegations made by these jealous, carping foreign malcontents:

• There is a country called the United States
• The United States is located on a planet called Earth
• Earth orbits around something called the Sun

Are any of these allegations correct? There is evidence on both sides. Perhaps we'll never know.

Let's get it over with and give the whole ME back to the Turks. They did a much better job with it than the Brits.
In exchange,Turkey can't join the EU.Too many swarthy people will destroy European Kulchur.

"An activist reacts as she sees other colleagues as they tried to get near the U.S. embassy in Manila" - sounds like something written by a robot.

Reminds me of the News Hour whose motto is only tell half the story in order to slant it in favor of Bush because Jim Lehrer has faith in Americans and that they can put 2 and 2 together despite being lied to and misled by the News Hour. This is what is known as fair and balanced.

And besides, the topic of Israel is far too sensitive to be discussed in polite circles. In polite circles if someone errs and mentions Israel the proper response is to shyly blush, look in the other direction and change the topic to the proper method of planting watermelon seeds.
