Problem is that the foreign policy of most western countries suck bigtime. Lots of African, South American, and Asian domestic problems are caused by colonial and post-colonial times for example... Just look at the way the borders were made in the occupied portions of these continents.... But the foreign policy of the U.S. is more under a magnifying glass than anyone else.

Whilst browsing through ATS its quite apparent that there is a fair amount of America bashing and conversly pro Americans bashing others, but is it all just bad press. I know that many people inside/outside of America are not happy and do not support America's foreign policy but does that provide people with a reason to hate America and therfore Americans.
Despite the war on terror and the changes to the constitution, America is still seen as one of the worlds great democracy's.

Compare that to the attitude in South Korea...very different. A high percentage of South Koreans will make negative comments about the US Military and George Bushie -- the devil. There are signs in restaurants and bars in Itaewon saying "No Americans". Protests are regularly held outside bases. Ironically though, they all want to have an American accent when they learn English.
