I knew that the wave of anti-Americanism that would swell up after the Iraq war would make me feel ill. And it has. It has made me much, much more ill than I had expected.
My anti-Americanism has become almost uncontrollable. It has possessed me, like a disease. It rises up in my throat like acid reflux, that fashionable American sickness. I now loathe the United States and what it has done to Iraq and the rest of the helpless world.
I can hardly bear to see the faces of Bush and Rumsfeld, or to watch their posturing body language, or to hear their self-satisfied and incoherent platitudes. The liberal press here has done its best to make them appear ridiculous, but these two men are not funny.
I was tipped into uncontainable rage by a report on Channel 4 News about "friendly fire", which included footage of what must have been one of the most horrific bombardments ever filmed. But what struck home hardest was the subsequent image, of a row of American warplanes, with grinning cartoon faces painted on their noses. Cartoon faces, with big sharp teeth.

"You don't like us? Well F*ck you. We're saved your asses back in 1943, you do what we tell you to do. You're only alive because of us. How dare you say that we can't do what we want."
Really TC, this article is "opinion", opinion is based on facts. The lady is telling you how she feels about your country. It's a feeling that is increasingly common in the UK, and across the world. Doesn't this frighten you at all?
This woman is saying that your entire culture is becoming obsessed with violence and war, but that you don't understand what that implys, hence your disney aircraft dropping bombs that kill people. US soldiers shooting civilians, and none of you care, because they're not American civilians, just foreigners. As a good Christian would put it; God Help You.

dom once again u understood 100% what this article wants to show..."
Um, you don't talk sense, you are about the most ignorant thing I have seen this side of Clinton, the problem with this is that you are all forgetting the most important thing, if it was not for the USA you would probably all be spreaking German or Russian right now, have no life to speak of, and probably be ready to die at 25. We are the great equalizer, without us there would be NO freedom to speak of, why do people argue that point? Why don't you just go ahead and post all of YOUR points as to why YOU dislike America and get it over with, have some gumption, don't quote some pansy who types behind the plastic shield.
The world is full of bastards and killers, even without the US using our "Daisy Cutters" and other weapons of mass destruction like rifles, it would STILL GO on, why do you people not acknowlege that fact. Someday we WILL BE NO MORE, and then your great great grandkid will wish to all to high hell that he had the freedom to do what you are doing right now. By the way, for hating us so MUCH, you do enjoy the freedoms that we protect for you.
Ignorance is bliss, hatred is evil
with 18 years and ID card i can kill a person, america has the most high police per person ratio in the entire earth, same as the highest amount of criminals in jail in the entire earth, is that the freedom that u talk about wizard?
