British armed forces are liked in lots of countries because of their attitude with the population and the civilians they work with. I've met people who came to the UK to study on the basis of meeting or working alongside British armed forces. Some of them also met or worked alongside US forces, and had some firm words of displeasure about their attitude.
Anyway Blair is liked in a lot of countries. Americans, from all sides of the political spectrum, think he is wonderful. They can't understand why I slag him off.
