Paperback, 20 Pages
Ships in 3-5 business days
Anyone can name a multitude of great musical, artistic, architectural, and other cultural achievements from most European countries: France, Spain, Germany, the Netherlands. But what about Belgium, and its ten million people? What has it contributed to world culture? Fluffy waffles. A few varieties of beer and chocolate. That's about it. Which raises the question: what have the Belgians been doing with their time instead? Maybe Belgium chokes the world with its sweet, sweet waffles to divert us from its growing imperialist ambitions, as the Belgians build a war machine on a scale undreamt of by Alexander or Genghis Khan. As America dithers in the Middle East, its true enemy gathers strength far closer to home. This essential instuctional manual will teach America's children about the growing Belgian threat, and tell them how to combat the coming invasion. Buy it now--because tomorrow may be too late.

Sep 12, 2011I don't understand that people are insulted by this book. It is mentioned that the book is a satire and people should read it as a satire. The writer is not ignorant, but just wants to publish a silly and hilarious book. I live in Belgium and I know that we have a lot more than Brussels sprouts and waffles (like mentioned in the book). But the book is funny as hell. The writer pretends to be super stupid and childish. Although the book is a satire the last page of the book contains this: > ABOUT THE AUTHOR > Danny Wind is the author of the best-selling > Let's Kill All the... series. In 2009 he became the > first private citizen to be formally censured by > the United Nations Human Right Council. > His current whereabouts are unknown. > For more of his work, > visit insightoutpost.com/profile/DannyWind. IT'S A PITY - when you buy this book on this site - that you only get a LOW QUALITY JPEG PRINT. So I recommend people wanting a copy of the book to contact me...

Jul 3, 2011My girlfriend is Belgian and she and all her friends think this book is hilarious. It is not really a children's book and not to most peoples taste. It is a (self confessed by the author) satire book and I'm surprised to see how few people actually realise the joke here is not against the Belgians, but against the Americans, by a fellow American who understands his nations world image isn't as rosy as the Americans believe, particularly amongst certain European countries. The humour is a bit dark but if you actually read the story you can see he is making fun of the xenophobic and ignorant aspects of American culture. I presume Belgium was the target because it is the centre for the European Parliament, but I can't be 100% sure. By ending the story with a change of focus to the Swedes just mimics recent American foreign policy of "us and them" and the need to find a new "them" once the old "them" are no longer seen as problem.
Jun 24, 2011Before this book, I had no idea the danger that Belgians provided for society. However, I do wish the author had described more ways to help. I'm a libertarian and I don't believe in government-funded genocide. How would I do this? Should I boycott delicious Belgian beer? Shun Belgians? Go down to the Antwerptown section in major cities and beat Belgians with whatever implements of destruction are available? Also, Mr. Wind has not adequately made the case for stopping all the Swedes. One step at a time - I know man's reach exceeds his grasp, but we should focus on problems at hand before the next ones.
Jun 21, 2011i really don't understand why so many belgians are offended by this... i mean really, it's just a stupid book, not meant to be taken seriously. Anyone with an IQ above 50 should realize it's a joke. An as for writing a book called Let's Kill all the Indians... well.. they almost did and that's not funny.. but then, if I'm not mistaken, the belgians killed very many in the belgian congo up until the 1950's.. so jump off your soap box... I am american, my love is belgian.. he doesn't find it funny at all. I think it's just a different sense of humor... and the more you whine & complain the more money Mr Wind will make
Jun 18, 2011I live in belgium and can not understand that this book is published. Is there really no culture in America? I thought after 200 years they were already a bit advanced but it turns out that they still are the same as in the Stone Age. Maybe something different than eating McDonald's and start to wear appropriate clothing, and not walking with your bare ass on the streets. But then you have to receive education and if you do not get in your own country ...... might just come to Belgium, and learn what culture is ......
