His answer is what I have always suspected - they don't care. They have enough problems of their own that they don't need to sit around and worry about us.

It also reminded me of the countless times there would be an Iraq debate in Congress and the Republicans would take the floor and start going on about "our enemies hear this and think it's retreat". The world don't care what is happening in Congress or who becomes President, just so long as the next President isn't George W. Bush.

Can you help us out?
