welcome to the land of bigots.

I can only conclude from your input that you believe it is better for everyone to learn 
several languages to cause international operations to work more soomthly.  It is real 
nice to have a standard language. In many cases (see above) English is the standard.  
That doesn't make us the land of bigots.  I have flown aircraft in 13 countries - It was 
sure nice (and STANDARD) to be able to (have done it) call Mayday on the guard freg 
and have soemone understand.  

By the way, Mayday comes from the French word " m'aides" which means help me.
