No Wonder They Hate Us


In Germany, one of John Kerry’s trusted allies in his plan to pull back in
Iraq, recent polls have shown that most Germans have happily swallowed
Gerhard Schroeder’s anti-American line. Not long ago, a poll revealed that
a significant majority of Germans think Americans are “bloodthirsty.” To
us, anti-Americanism seems so unlikely in a place like Germany, especially
after our successful efforts to reunify the country. But a new poll
shows than 25 percent of west Germans want the wall back, while a third of
east Germans say they’re no better off now than they were under communism.
At least now we know why they don’t like us.
