Posted on 01/31/2003 2:27:37 PM PST by mountaineer
Some European nations' leaders oppose the United States' policy regarding Iraq, while others offer firm support. It has been suggested that we might boycott tourism and the agricultural products of countries like France and Germany, for example, who oppose President Bush's efforts.
Some also have suggested offering words of support and thanks to those nations that have chosen to stand with us. The eight nations whose leaders endorsed a letter of support of the U.S. were: the United Kingdom, Spain, Hungary, Denmark, Italy, Poland, Portugal and the Czech Republic:
Washington, 31 January 2003 (RFE/RL) -- With an array of European countries voicing support for U.S. policy on Iraq, President George W. Bush moved closer to securing a broad "coalition of the willing" to back possible military action against Baghdad.
Yesterday, leaders from Britain, Italy, Spain, Denmark, Poland, the Czech Republic, Hungary, and Portugal signed a letter expressing support for the tough U.S. stance on Iraq, which the United States accuses of hiding weapons of mass destruction. Slovakia later said it supported the letter and today government leaders in Latvia, Romania, and Slovenia said they also back the contents of the letter. source
In any event, contacting foreign countries takes some doing. This thread attempts to provide some practical suggestions.

Two weekends ago Crawford staged a protest for "Pro-American Americans".
On his Saturday night show he called for all Americans who support the war against Saddam to turn on their headlights during his show (8 to 10 PM). The response was overwhelming. Lo and behold, callers reported that every car on Austin's highways and byways had its headlights on.Let's just hope all those leftie politicians get the message that Americans stand behind the president in the need to stop Saddam and to stop him soon.
So the deejay upped the ante. He not only asked ALL Americans to turn on their healights from 8 to 10 each night, he called for a Motorcade For War with Saddam---all those who love America and stand behind our troops in their soon-to-be war against Saddam were asked to participate in a motorcade Monday morning, 6 to 9, driving into Austin and filling up its roads and parking lots, turning the city into one giant traffic jam. The Motorcade on Monday morning was amazing and gratifying. Every freeway and side street was full of cars from 6 to 9 a.m., and by 9 virtually every parking lot in Austin was at least at 80% full! It was unbelievable!
And word must be spreading fast. Reports have it that these protests are occurring all over America.
(psst, that was his point...get it?)
