- Your flag is burned in demonstrations in the Mid-East. - The Arabs are recalling their ambassadors or shutting down their embassies. - A boycott of your products become a regional pasttime in the Arab world. - A big lump of your internetbased media is malfunctioning due to cyberattacks from the Mid-East. /Sarcasm :( TAC

Oh please, your not that important.... the local Arabic shop simply ran out of American flags. There is good money to be made selling American flags and matches in the Mid-East.

Oh, and here I was thinking that getting ones flag burned was a mantle of importance on this planet... :) Actually, the exports of Danish dairy products and other stuff has totally dried up over this weekend One company alone, Arla, is losing £1m a day... The effect on the overall economy really doesn't matter, as it is neglible. But think of it. All those diplomats will leave without paying their parking tickets!!!

Well Yimmy: How do you think Sweden is making a profit! Honestly! I've never been able to figure out what muslims want in Denmark. Our flag is a crusader banner - the only unadultered national crusader banner left! As to the trade sanctions: Well we've seen this before: Technical barriers to avoid quality, low priced products - and we will see them again: Send them a side of bacon! This has nothing to do with religion, but some nutcases in danger of expulsion for terrorist related activity.

Apropos! They must be running short of Danish flag, maybe we could sell them some more - same guarantee as the untertaker gives on his taylor-made! In fact I think - on the whole - this is terrific for our export ---- to the USA! Have some spare ribs - and white cheese - reasonable prices as an export order fell through!

Why do we even bother selling our valuable high-quality products to Muslim countries if they don't want it? They are even poorer then Africa (except for the oil which goes to the rich). Perhaps this would be the opportunity to market our products to new and prosperous markets such as India or China. Or we could sell it to the USA, who would be glad to buy our products knowing that we are as hated by Islamo-fascists as they are! But perhaps some new names could help the sales: Danish pastry--> Freedom of Speech pastry Colopast medical supplies --> Freedom of Press medical supplies Danish Ham --> Democracy ham By the way, be sure to check this out if you haven't already: http://www.strategypage.com/messageboards/messages/89-37063.asp

It seems to me, you know you are doing something right when they start burning your flag in the middle east. I will be sure to keep Danish goods in mind when doing my shopping.
