Angelina Jolie receives a warm welcome from Iraqis during her visit.

The crowd was heard chanting, "Send us American celebrities, not bombs," and "With our blood and souls, we sacrifice ourselves for you, o Angie".

I vote for Kim Kardashian to visit us next

"Send us American celebrities, not bombs,"

... sounds like some sort of subversive lefty anti-coalition message. ;)

I agree of course.

The irony is, as far as American pop-culture goes, it is the single most persuasive tool the USA has at its disposal to influence other peoples. Why is there always the need to pull out the big stick??

Leavin’ the blondes for the Saudi flyboys then?  (That blood and souls and sacrifice stuff sounds just about as spooky when it's for celebrities as it does for imams and dictators, by the way…)

"A Pakistani man, one of approximately 10,000 people participating in an anti-American rally, has died. The cause of death? Complications from inhaling the smoke of burning American flags."

I wonder - does that sort of death qualify the guy for martyrdom? If so, will he get the full amount of 72 virgins or might he have to settle for 36 of them?

Yeah, I'm pretty sure it does; full 72 virgins.

I would definitly not have guessed that Sweden would vote the most in favour of the "interventions" in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya of all EU nations + the US. We seem to have been most in favour of every one of them, at least in retrospect.

Check out the top chart:

The whole survey is really interesting. And although it's long it's a fairly thing to skip the text and just check out the charts and graphs.

Here's European views on Obama and Romney and how Europeans would vote in the US election:

@ Marcus -

So the Americans got him after all! See, the murkins really are everywhere! ;)

Seems like a good business opportunity to export US flags to Pakistan these days, LOL.

      "Mitt Romney…is Unknown to One-in-Three
      [Europeans]"

Perhaps we should wish this ratio were higher, in case Romney wins.  Given Romney's tendency to lament that the U.S. is ‘becoming like Europe’ and how he's going to save us from that awful fate, it might be better for our international relationships if fewer Europeans had heard of him yet.

A memorial service for slain Ambassador Chris Stevens is playing on Libyan state television today.  (per Fox News radio)

My condolences to Ambassador Stevens family and friends. He sounded like a good person.

To be honest I think you have bigger problems than a tiny potential exposure to asbestos australia. Yes, it is nasty but many people worked around this stuff all their lives with no ill effect.

If it’s important for your mats to stay in place I would go with the interlocking ones, the mats with straight edges are great but can slide around a bit, Chicken coop kits
so they are probably better for smaller stalls where it doesn’t matter if they

When compared to Windows 7 Home Premium Product Key, Windows 7 Professional Product Key is outstanding. When will Microsoft ever learn? Keep it simple, attractive, and easy to use. Windows 8 Professional Product Key Most computer users just want the system to work. Windows 7 does this.
Got my old desktop up and running. I got Windows 7 Ultimate Product Key because my desktop used to run on Vista (enough said). http://www.productkeyservice.com I did have a little difficulty SQL Server 2008 Standard Product Key but that was just due to my lack of experience with the process; once I got started, Office 2010 Professional Plus Product Key was as easy as just following prompts.
