It isn't so much that the world hates Americans, although some do just because they stereotype groups. Most world opinon against the US from
intelligent people, yes - even Osama Bin Laden - is against the US governments actions abroad. As Americans, we do not 'see" this a whole lot
without probing for answers. The US news does not show our country too often in a shadow when it comes to our actions abroad. In fact, they are
always showing all the good things we are doing - for the most part.
But, you have to remember that the world is NOT our playground just because we are the sole superpower. This is what the world rants about. Other
nations are sovereign and even though the President doesn't know this definition, he sure would if some other nation medalled and demanded things in
The world sees US actions as selfish, because even though we do assist nations from time to time, it isnt without strings attached. The US is in a
stage of global dominance where the end game is all that matters. We are trying to stretch our resources across the globe economically, militarily,
and socially to eliminate competition for our motherland. Iraq is an example. We are not there on some lofty mission to free people, but to insert a
level of control over that region that will last and be beneficial for the future. The more control the US gains, the less opposition we will have
later on. But all this comes with consequences. The world does see this happening and eventually will take actions. The so called-terrorists
already did. It wasn't because they hate our freedom. The see what the US government had been doing in their lands and took action. This isn't
some psychotic group acting irrationally, but playing the same game that all governments use - tit for tat. Unfortunatley, the people are usually the
casualties of all this.
Ask yourself how you would feel if the fall of the soviets never happened and they became the sole superpower and came in and built bases globally and
started dictating how everyone should do things. Would you start to dislike them? Probably me as well.
