Hot Links: Stories we're chasing today
Posted By CNN: 10:38 AM ET
What's with all the French-Canadians posting on here? I'm wondering how France's troops are fairing in Iraq or any other U.S. lead missions going on these days. You know what I say...
"Blame Canada! Viva la revolution!"

Why is it that I feel better about the Brits handling the 'poisoning' than Chertoff, Negroponte, Gonzales and Rice?

What's the point of taking 'pot shots' at the Canadians and French? It would seem that My Team USA is the one that has been out of step. As a true red, white and blue American I find that I'm wishing that the 'deciders' could have a gag order imposed on them until saner heads get this mess sorted out. I for one am looking for allies to start the peace process.

Where do you think the 'French-Canadians' come from?? Ask some of them how their troops are doing in Afghanistan!! I'm pretty sure they've buried some since the war started!!

I am very concerned about the spy poisoning. I am sure this kind of thing happens in the lives of spies, but what about people in coffee shops and sushi bars? Does it happen in front of us and we don't even know it?

Controversial ambassador to UN to step down:

Why are we even in the UN? What has the UN done to stop genocide in African countries? The UN is useless and not credible and constantly acts to undermine the United States.

I can't believe Americans don't see the irony in that gazillion dollar ivory tower in which they sit. Here's an idea for the U.N. : you wanna get in touch with reality? Move your headquarters to Africa.

As far as we know nobody else has been found that has a lethal amount of polonium in their system. It seems to me it would be pretty hard to carry this out without SOMEBODY else being contaminated dangerously.
Wayne-I've searched all over the CNN and AC360 sites and find nowhere that says your country has to be fighting in a war to comment.

To Wayne, Fl.

WOW! You got up on the wrong side of the bed or are you always this jolly?
Listen to Anderson when he opens the show. "Welcome to our viewers at home and accross the world". Yes, there is a world outside your little world, Wayne. By the way, Canada is doing an amazing job in Afghanistan. The NATO troops that are going to go there in 2007, are mostly going to help reinforce the efforts that the Canadian army is doing in the south.
As for Iraq, to my knowledge, more than Canada & France refused to go there. And what is happening in the Middle East as the potential to affect the rest of the world.

Canada is your neighboring country. You may not like us but in times of need we are always there.
From a French-Canadian, a proud one, but first, a citizen of this world.

Not all Americans are resentful of Canadians being involved in the 360 blog. Canadians are cool! Just say yes to Canadians!

I would like to take this opportunity to properly thank Wayne for proving my point.

Typical American.

I would also like to point out that these US missions were instigated by the Americans, you should thank us for helping and cleaning up your American messes.

One thing that hasn't been discussed here is the fact that Po210 is readily available to the average consumer in the form of Staticmaster brushes used for cleaning dust from photographic film and lenses. For les than $50 a 3" replacement element can be purchased using the internet.
