    At least from what I have read they pulled the ad. Of course, it was only after people protested. I, however, am somewhat surprised that the American people protested. Happily surprised of course.

    [SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]In order to rally people, governments need enemies. They want us to be afraid, to hate, so we will rally behind them. And if they don't have a real enemy, they'll invent one in order to mobilize us.

    While they're at it, they can also have PRIL, PRNY, PRHI, and PRNJ. Sure the new country would not be entirely contiguous, but so what?:pirata:

    It is somewhat refreshing to see people get up in arms about something. I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall in the Absolut offices when calls and emails started coming in about the ad.

    What kills me is that they would never post a similar ad about other countries, but for some reason they think it's OK to do for the United States. Can you imagine the uproar if they had done something similar with Taiwan/China, North and South Korea, or Russia and Finland?

    It's like the Muslim/Christian thing - heaven forbid a Muslim ever get offended, but yet it's OK to offend Christians at every turn.
