The Diplomacy of Dune; the last meter

"Often, I must speak otherwise than I think.  That is called diplomacy."
-Frank Herbert, Dune Messiah

And other public diplomacy thoughts: I wonder if U.S. public diplomacy efforts of connecting on "the last three feet" are hindered by the fact that everyone uses the metric system ("The last meter?").  Only three countries don't use the metric system: America, Liberia and Burma.
