There you go, accusing "Americans" as being responsible for what our government does and does not do.
Granted, we elect these bottom feeders and it seems the idea of a politician telling the truth is a lost cause but I guarantee the majority of American's don't agree with what this country is becoming any more then the people living in glass house's throwing the stone's like you.
I doubt where your from is any better.
The deliberations of the Constitutional Convention of 1787 were held in strict secrecy. Consequently, anxious citizens gathered outside Independence Hall when the proceedings ended in order to learn what had been produced behind closed doors. The answer was provided immediately. A Mrs. Powel of Philadelphia asked Benjamin Franklin, “Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?” With no hesitation whatsoever, Franklin responded, “A republic, if YOU can keep it.”
Coward - a person who lacks courage in facing danger, difficulty, opposition, pain, etc.; a timid or easily intimidated person.
I don`t think America is a nation full of cowards, you can`t have an all volunteer military in a nation full of cowards.
