people round the world have been bad-mouthing America for decades now.
Sure, but that is no indication of how the majority feel.
Yup. ’Cause when an earthquake or Tsunami devastates their cities we will send the most money and the most people and the most recourses (viz.) for the rescue efforts.
Not always the most by any means. The Australians, for example, do much more, especially taking account of their small population. They have troops and police in many countries maintaining law and order and their contributions to the Indonesian Tsunami was more than ours. In fact the USA was criticised for an inadequate response to that disaster. Australians don’t seem to attract universal hatred for their efforts – quite the opposite.
Your reading comprehension is amazing. Truly a wonder to behold.
Indeed. The way your response was written I could have concluded that you disagreed with he fact that America was held in low regard.
You seem to think that it must always be like this because the world is perverse and hates us for no valid reason. It is not. Believe it or not, there are a lot of reasonable and intelligent people out there. Respect is there to be earned if we conduct ourselves properly on the international stage. That means more than simply sending troops or being generous during natural disasters. It is about respecting them, and being seen to have high moral values and acting accordingly in all situations. And we did have that respect until the Vietnam War. With good leadership we could win it back.
