What did America do wrong? Why is there so much global hatred against America?

whenever there is a war fingers will be pointed and sides will be taken. There are probably more people for the war then against, but it seems the ones against have a unique ability to be heard more readily.

Or more of a desire to be heard!

A unique ability - you give them way too much credit. All they do is hit the streets and cause pandemonium, pissing off the majority of the country.
I know the majority of anti-war protestors here in Australia are from the rent a crowd group ( those that will turn up to anything ). They garner almost no respect within the community, especially as the No War for Oil chant is getting old and is disproven by anyone who uses logic in there thought process.

the real is this
we dont or never hate the america,but what is the real hate is to the american foreign policies toward other country and other nation that the real hating came up about (biggest country in the world make a real stupid thing where war is business and other nation defends them self with the real explosives on their chest isnt that
is a real coalition on the other hand.one side fight this war because of political prestage and global dominion.
the second fight this war because of defending his holy motherland and his holy religion so until where will this war will ended.i ll remember one story where in vietnam
most of the american g.i becoming vietnam roasted chicken,so this history repeated again as i see

Well said, I agree! How much do you wanna bet that those things are concocted by some weird government agency in order to distract us from focusing on the natural injustices of war: The killing of civilians!

I think that is also something that is keeping the rest of the world away from us on this one. We see very little about it in our press.

If you want to understand why the entire region is now anti-American, and there are opposition parties in countries like Syria calling for the country to enter the war against the Americans, then you've got to look at the arrogant US foreign policy which has lead us to where we are now.

This war has been carried out unilaterally, the US/UK do NOT have a majority of countries behind them, they couldn't get UN backing and weren't willing to wait for Blix to finish his inspections. They also have the majority of Middle Eastern governments against this war, and a vast majority if Middle Eastern public opinion against it too. So this is a stupid war to fight politically. It shows that the idiocy of George Bush can indeed be allowed to drive the US, a fundamental problem with the US system of government? I think so.

It's a shame so many of the US people have allowed themselves to be manipulated by a lying president and a biased media. But then I suspect most people don't even realise they're being manipulated...

If you shaft everyone around you for your own gain, dont be surprised when they dont buy you a fecking Christmas card. Oh, and that big blue banner might be a good reason too. Just remember though, it's the Governments people hate, not the citizens of the country. Do not forget that. Do not let them drive us apart.

People around the world are becoming antiamerican or hate america for exactly the same principles that were brought forward by the US government about dictators abusing human rights.

What do call the actual US led bombing campaign against Iraq?

A blatant abuse of human rights with the killing of innocent civilians.

Do you think the cold murder of innocent civilians that you hear and see on TV are going to make people feel good and friendly towards the US?

So good on you , now that you have killed another 20 women and children, we surely see you as a liberator, yes you can become our friend and we' ll let you kill some more of our people.

Wake up! Violence, hate just brings on more hate and violence. To any action there is an equal and opposite reaction, you have learned that at school.

The US might win the war just because they have the UK and Australia as allies and have a lot of military hardware, but the hate will grow in the long run.

You are not helping these people, how can they see you as liberators if you are killing their women and children?

I would guess that we are hated by so many because of jelousy and envy.... But that might have already been said I didn't read the whole topic....

Yes, it's easy to put it down to jealousy. Then you don't actually have to think about any of the real reasons.

Ouch...

This is scary. Many people in America think the same thing about a lot of other countries.

I started out being pro-war, because the reasons they had seemed solid to me. I am still pro-war, but now I am beggining to think that this whole thing is a distraction. A ploy, somthing for the massess to concentrate on.

I'm not saying Bush is planning somthing, I'm saying more people may be in on it than you think. (Wasn't Bin Laden trained by the CIA?)

I wonder if we are all being misled...

"This is scary. Many people in America think the same thing about a lot of other countries."

Sounds much like when the radio issues warning that a car is going on the wrong sense on the highway. The driver of this car hears the radio broadcast and says "one going in the wrong sense ? I see tens, hundreds!" and still believes he's on the right lane.

"I started out being pro-war, because the reasons they had seemed solid to me. I am still pro-war, but now I am beggining to think that this whole thing is a distraction. A ploy, somthing for the massess to concentrate on. "

But to distract from what ? From a military coup in the USA ? By the way .. for how long can a President declare martial law and postpone elections ???

i believe the UN resolution 1441 to disarm Iraq was passed unanimously, however the United States and her allies are the only ones who feel the need to back up what they say. it's not like Blix started his inspections on March 7th and we went to war on the 19th like many of you seem to think. he had already been inspecting for months, and mind you part of the deal was Iraq was supposed to show him what they had and then destroy it, not wait for him to find it when they slipped up and say "ok, didn't think you'd find those. we'll destroy them now."

people, stop tryin to take the moral high road and claim this is a perfect world and no violence is necessary to qualm violence. as long as their are people like Saddam Hussein and his ilk that build up armies for personal glory, the US and other rightminded countries will have people willing to stand up to them. we are nobody's bitch.

Correct. 1441 called for an inspections regime, which was to be ended in some weeks from now.

"however the United States and her allies are the only ones who feel the need to back up what they say."

Incorrect. Iraq's disarmament was underway when US decided to begin bombing.

How can you argue the bush regime is right-minded ? Do you mean far-right-minded ?

Mass murder without the slightest justification on moral or legal grounds is *dangerous*

Resolution 1441 may have warned of serious consequences, but the US/UK couldn't get any further justification from the UN. They FAILED in diplomacy. Even if we listen to the 45 strong coalition of the willing, there are 180 countries in the world, so that's not a majority. Only 4 of the coalition have actually sent combat troops, with the Polish contingent numbering a few hundred. In the region all Middle Eastern countries have condemned the attack. No muslim countries have troops in the country, in the Gulf War 12 of the 29 countries with active troops were muslim.

World opinion is against this attack, arab opinion is against this attack, before the war started UK public opinion, Australian public opinion, Spanish public opinion were all against this war. Only now in the UK/Australia have people been forced to back the war by the claim that they're undermining the troops if they don't.

This war is wrong, and cannot be justified by the WMD argument, cannot be justified by the terrorist argument, can be justified if this is a war of liberation (but is it?), and is being fought for neo-conservatist aims. i.e. control of Middle East, and an attempt to Westernise the entire area (now guaranteed to fail)

you say mass murder is dangerous.. i couldn't agree more and this is not only self evident, but it is why i am against keeping Saddam in power. it would be best if he would just step down but that will not happen because he has delusions of grandeur regarding his place in history. we can't get a war crimes tribunal against him due to opposition from guess who? France, Germany, and Russia. everyone is screaming about the US double standard and oil, but this is exactly my point, except replace US with France, Germany, and Russia. I'm not saying America is perfect, I'm simply saying force is the only option here.

also, someone in this thread said people don't hate American people, only their foreign policy. this is clear to me also, for the most part. however, bin laden did not fly a plane into a building and kill our foreign policy, he killed our citizens. Saddam and bin laden say death to all American infidels. this is why we are at war with them and not everyone else in europe. you can disagree with us, that's fine. but when you declare holy war against us because you don't like what our government's policy towards Israel is, or whatever else, that is not right and we should defend our right to live.

And it seems to me, if I'm right, that you guys would be playing right into their hands. They want chaos and discord, because durring chaos and discord people look for a strong, influential leader. They seem to be doing a good job to me.

I thought people here were conspiracy nuts, not sheep! Where's your spirit!?!?!?
