Australian head John Howard lashes out at ‘irrational’ Europeans for bashing the United States…
JOHN Howard has lashed out at “old Europe”, describing criticism of the US as “unfair and irrational”, as global tensions grow over the Iraq war and free trade.
“Some of the criticism (of the US) by some of the Europeans is unfair and irrational,” Mr Howard said in the panel debate, organised by Britain’s BBC TV.
“It is a sign of parochialism and it is disturbingly intense.”
He said the BBC debate “was based on an anti-American mindset which was established right at the beginning by the moderators from the BBC”.
Mr Howard said anti-Americanism had already affected world co-operation.
…sometimes I think Europeans forget to differentiate “American People” from “American Politicians”.
