For three years the far left has thrown at the gullible public the fistfuls of Goebble-modeled propaganda. Shouted long and loud, they hope some of it will stick to us. "Decent Americans wanted innocent Terri killed and they abhor any who would try to save her."

Now they expand their horizons internationally, finding sympathetic kin abroad in places.

It ends with an ironic and tragic yet comic dopey platitude

Perhaps if he would have quipped, sadder Budweiser, that could be swallowed but the word "wiser" just doesn't do it.

My 2004-05 tour expanded to 14 nations. My former warm welcome turned frigid. U.S. invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan, Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo, kidnappings, torture, election rigging, wiretapping, and political and economic chicanery caused shocking contrast.

Europeans saw through the Bush-Cheney-Rumsfeld-Powell-Rice litany of lies about WMD's, atomic bombs, staged terrorism "alerts," New Orleans' hurricane fiasco, and the sick Terry Schiavo spectacle. Most (88 percent) now viewed my country as the world's No. 1 aggressor and "terrorist." Spain, Italy, Germany, Austria, Denmark, then England replaced pro-American regimes. Saddam Hussein's staged trial didn't alter the picture.

~Snip~

New Zealand and Australia ousted pro-American regimes. Japan and South Korea rejected pro-U.S. parties. I returned home, sadder but wiser.
