Buenos dias, salem aleikum...
I am writing this message to you two great leaders from cold Germany (snow flurries, 28 degrees Fahrenheit) because the U.S. Secretary of Insults Rumsfeld put my country at the same level as your countries. My mind was outraged, but my senses were delighted. Under the soles of my bare feet I felt desert sand. Palm trees gave shade in a flourishing oasis. Veiled Beduin women presented me with dates tasting like sweet liquorice. You could do worse than being a Libyan.
However - sorry, Col. Gaddafi - I would like being Cuban even better. Salsa music all day long, Cuba Libre in a tall glass, Cohibas, and señoritas warming my blood. The Caribbean, green as buds in springtime.
Might the U.S. Secretary of Insults have the best of intentions for us Germans? The climate - exotic, erotic? I certainly feel that way, because I am right now freezing my ass off in Germany, and I don't mean just physically. Your countries are both kissed by the sun, but you are gangsters.
With kindest regards,
Franz Josef Wagner
