Who claims your country is the the root of all evil? Noone does but maybe some terrorists.
First of all the word: evil in all its translations isn't used by anybody I ever knew for a country or people of a country. In germany the word evil is used in fairy tails and other stories which is probably why George W. Bush's division of earth in good and evil was pretty funny to most people in Europe.
Germany and I think I can speak at least for most European countries never ever hated the Americans citizens, why should we? Americans gave their life among french, british, russian and many others to fight the regime my ancestors were oppressed by.
In fact we are just upset about a few people in the USA, that's not the whole government it is George W. Bush, Donald Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney and Paul Wolfowitz.
Condoleeza Rice is still a very respected person in Europe.
But still we don't think that those politicans are evil. We don't use those words, we use words like "idiots" or "fools" for them.
If you are upset that people say "The US politic in Iraq is bad" and are using the term US instead of writing George W. Bush you can take my word for granted that they don't think that the normal US citizen had any influence on this.

Greetings back at you
I dont agree with bush either I think he is an idiot too I am just tired of all the american bashing going on by some people on this board it is true that we are not perfect and I think our pres. has his head up his AZZ but we have done a lot of good things too and I am glad to hear someone else say it. It just seems to me that a lot of people seem to think we are bad guys and anyone with any sense should know that countries do things for there own reasons ALL of which are selfish.we went to war because it was in our best interest, or at least we were told, yall did not join because it was NOT in your interests to do so. No big deal business as usual all the way around. I am not an idealest I do NOT see this as a battle between giood and evil but it is between us and them and I back us the home team and you would do the same. Its a good discussion I would like to take it to the evil america thread if you wish to talk futher on the subject
And yes it was a bad joke
We should dare to show a bit national pride...a german flag in your house..or even in front of it? You are a Nazi. You don't agree with everything done by the Israeli government? Damn you are for sure a Nazi. You didn't like that poor people from everywhere(as people from Mexico for you) are getting high social security payments from your tax money? Damn you damn racist, f00king Nazi.
So, be happy with your country. Both aren't evil, they are good, very good.
am afraid the low participation in this thread is of fear of being called a racist or whatever
You believe that america isn't racist but you sit from a stand point that doesn't feel it. How can you every black person be wrong...even black folk that stand on the right will tell you that the police racial profile--pull black folk over--just a few weeks ago the police arrested a doctor in LA for being black and in the wrong car
This topics are always hard to read because I feel for yall. It's pathetic but I still feel for you in a way.
I have plenty of racist black folk in my family...and I don't go around excusing their racism or my own racism.
The way you do it makes heritage a scapegoat for your racist feelings.
Having those beliefs are okay...still, you're racist.
How do your reconcile that?
If you and the KKK want to fight it out be my guest just leave me out of it
Its easier to blame a country or a race (sound familer) than to face the problems of the world head on and have to FIX the problem not just point a finger and whine
There is NOTHING racist about whites being proud of who they are any more than blacks or orientals or anyone else.
