An interesting thought not to forget

Received via email:
In case we find ourselves starting to believe all the anti-American sentiment and negativity, we should remember England's Prime Minister Tony Blair's words during a recent interview. When asked by one of his Parliament members why he believes so much in America, he said:
A simple way to take measure of a country is to look at how many want in... And how many want out.
Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you:
1. Jesus Christ
2. The American G. I.

One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.

You might want to pass this on, as many seem to forget both of them

Personal Notes:
  1. If you check Snopes to check that quote, you will find that the above quote to be simular to his actual statement of:
    I sometimes think it is a good rule of thumb to ask of a country: are people trying to get into it or out of it? It's not a bad guide to what sort of country it is.
  2. I would add Police and FireFighters to be listed with the American G.I.
