Of the victims of the London bombing so I dug out an old British Flag I bought at Fort Bragg back in 1995 or so and I have hung it outside of my house. I have gotten numerous cars to honk in approval. Just FYI about how we feel about you hear in California.

I bought an American flag at the same time but back in 2000 an Albanian Kosovar friend asked me if he could have the American flag so I gave it to him. The Albanians just love Americans and Brits but they have a deep hatred of all things French & Greek. This is mostly due to the fact that the French wanted to find a nonmilitary solution to the Kosovo crisis while the Greeks & Russians are seen as evil co-religionists of the Serbs.

Personally, I found the Serbs to be nice people.

I've got some Serb friends. They're pretty baffled as to how they got demonised by the Balkan conflict- which wasn't short of atrocities from all participants.

No shit. Plus they see us as the "evil capitalists imperalists" of the region which feels as odd as a crapper on Mars.
