[quote]Some might think it is a bit macabre or tacky, but I find it quite touching that this company is apparently memorializing September 11th.
At a time when the British, German, and French populaces have become vocally opposed to U.S. security interests, and the German and French governments have engaged in diplomatic sabotage and shortsighted opportunism, Italy is acting responsibly and compassionately. Viva Italia![/quote]
So putting an American flag on a calendar by a single Italian company equals Italy ‘acting responsibly and compassionately’, but remembrance and sympathizing with America by other countries, i.e. their governments and their population, isn’t worth mentioning?
There are countless examples of that by countries an their population which oppose(d) the war, so where is the perspective in your post?
Your remark about the British, German and French populations is missleading at best, them and their governments opposing the war does not equal to not feeling compassionately about the victims of 911.
Surely ‘acting responsibly’ is your point of view but not supporting the war, even opposing it actively, does not equal to not being or feeling compassionately.
Compassion can hardly be a free-pass for waging war. IMHO.
I can’t help the feeling you want others to be the way you want them to be, not see them how they actually are so that you ‘have another argument’ which fits your point of view … :?
