How to understand "US policy" here?
The ambassador appealed for a change in US policy.
Doe sit mean the ambassor appealed for a change in his country's policy toward US (presupposing that the ambassor is an ambassor of certain country to US) or the ambassor appealed for a change in the policies practiced by US (presupposing that the ambassor is an American ambassor representing US) ? What do you think?
I think it refers to the policy conducted by the USA.
The policy in question is the US's. Grammatically, "US" is being used as the adjective that describes "policy".
yeah, it sounds like wherever the ambassador is from, that he is appealing to his own nation's leaders for a change in policy towards the u.s.
In this sentence, it is not clear whether the ambassador is from the U.S. or elswhere. The policy sounds like the policy OF the U.S. government, not TOWARDS it.
i think if they were referring to policy OF the government they'd call it foreign policy or something.
It means, the ambassador does not want to play a part in slaughter of civilians.
I think the ambassador is wasting his time. His appeals will fall on deaf ears.
This is not a politics forum.

I always remind myself to avoid eating while using the computer; otherwise I end up spewing my food onto the screen after going into hysterics. That was funny, and true, but sad too.
We all know this isn't a politics forum. The initial question was valid... Franco's comments, however, are ridiculous.
Skippy, you are a redneck, everyone knows that. Antimoon is a moderate forum. People can talk about a varety of topics. Read posts of Uriel and Damian in XXXXland. They talk every thing except language.
Skippy finds my comments ridiculous. Then ridicule them. If you ridicule them then it will mean you ridicule the truth. You can't accept the truth of America's annihilation of innocent children.
