    Well I don't hate the U.S. I was born here. I have no problem. My father hasn't wasted his life protecting it for nothing.

    I mean if the dominant power in the world (superpower) wast a stable democratic country run by the people (many can argue against this but the fact is that for 57 times every four years the presidency of the USA has been released and accepted by the next president in PEACE and without violance and FREE ELCECTIONS) and is tolerant towards other nations. It brings predictability and stability to many regions in the world, without it many lesser conflicts could have escalated beyond its region if that ''safeguard'' wasnt there.

    Imagine if there was a democratic country such as the US is today and as powerful as today back on 1.9.1939 maybe than the horrible 6 years might have never happened and instead there was a regional unrest in central Europe which would indeed be grave but not even nearly as horrible as what actually happened

    the bottom line is if the US wasnt as powerful for the past 50 years as it was there is no way we could live as we do today
    I don't hate the US, just the way its system works. Americans in general are pretty laid back people, maybe a bit too much obsessed with politics, though.

    But I think it's because it is the only country in the western world, where the most powerful insist it slowly goes back to living in the 1950's..

    Russians win the World War? Well UK defeated the power leading the war, the germans! If they could stop Germany, they could stop Japan (my opinion)... Or other allies

    Would you let someone who can barely count manage your money? What I'm trying to say is, if the US leaders can barely keep America stitched together, why would anyone want them running the world?

    America is full of corruption and greed and is probably the epicenter of moral decay. That's why people hate us.

    People hate the USA because we have the resources to steal other people's resources.

    Because it's government works against the interest of the people's wellbeing. That goes for both domestic and foreign affairs.
    Your government is build on corruption and no country would want a totalitarian government to come in and invade their country with your slick tactics.

    Re: Why do so many ppl hate the US?

    im from germany, there is nothing to be jealus of

    but sometimes is start to hate usa (not the poeple) when:
    - they talk about terrorism and about how to fight it and then dont recognize that they are the one who are terrorists( guantanamo)
    - the war in irak (only about oil)
    - the racism ( not only kkk)
    - the intolarance, for example a state only with christians call every other religion bad...

    or when "americans" shout to foreigners get out of america although they are foreigners too,

    without US we would have a nuclear Nazi Germany, I think you cant really compare a nuclear Nazi Germany to Al-Quaeda

    without the US there would be no UN, also the league failed because they had no military capabilities

    without the US soviet socialism would spread (and the welfare state as you say would never have been created since noone would take out Germany, Russia alone could not have done it, it might still have been west v east but it would be nazism v communism

    without the US middle east would be like it is today, many would agree that it would have been worse

    the greatest obstacle for Mexican economic growth ist the US in fact mexico benefits from having the richest country across the border

    without US either we the british or germans would invent the belt

    ill give you the one with Santorum, hes an idiot, but every country has those

    true about the fossil fuels, though i think China, USSR and the like would waste plenty as well, if the us wouldnt spend its resources someone else would

    every country has some corruption, the US is still a DEMOCRACY and the final decision is still held by the people of the US

    altough some northern european countries are more democratic the US is still a model against many, many countries

    Re: Why do so many ppl hate the US?

    i dont hate the US. hate is too strong of a word to use. there are things i like and dislike about the US. they are hypocritical at times. example, like how they judged germany of the mass genocide of the Jewish people. when you look at the history of the US, you will also find genocide there. the genocide of the native american and mexican people. murdering men, women, children and elders

    I won't correct your every point but the bolded one:

    In the early 70's Iran's women were much prosperous and free to not walk around like a ghost than they are today. That goes for other muslim countries too. Libiya, Iran, Irak, Afghanistan, Syria, Turky, etc... all of those countries somehow went in a state of war and chaos when the U.S. came in the picture.

    I know 2 militants that told me they went to Syria a couple of years ago and had several lethal battles with the Syrian army.
    When they returned home losing some of their friends, they were ordered to stay quiet. You don't know half of the political/tyranicall involvement of the american govt. on foreign affairs. (yet, I hope for you)

    Re: Why do so many ppl hate the US?

    Hipster.. I usually find your posts to be well thought out and smart.. the comment posted above show your age and naivete.. no big you'll learn I hope the error in your statement. I posted this for you in a similar thread and I'm guessing you didn't read it so here it is...

    My oldest son is a junior in college.. like many of you posting in this he's in the "young naive and stupid" years.. thats cool we all were at some point. Like you he's gonna save the planet save the whales live green and help everyone. Thats cool too! I told him when he gets to my age he'll still be trying to save... more of his own money! I know there are alot of folks here from around the world with diverse opinions... Allow me to address my fellow americans here and decide if you agree... I served in the Navy as an aircraft mech after Vietnam and have been lucky to visit many places around the world. A few years ago I went to Hawaii on vacation and visited Pearl Harbor and the Arizona memorial for the first time. I'd been to pearl several times the carriers first stop on WestPac duty but being a 19yr old all I did was chase girls and party.. my girlfriend saw that I got very emotional and asked why? My response was to ask if she knew what it was to be on a ship in the middle of nowhere and see the missles coming nowhere to go or hide.. Then I told her how you always felt the hate everywhere you went and we'd asked for it for sure but... I told her if she thought East Milwaukee was bad she had no clue India where I saw families 2-3 sometimes living in a cargo container.. kids playing in Manila stop and **** in the dirt street and keep playing.. Thailand where girls came down from the hills to earn a dowery by whoring themselves out.. the stench of Seoul and Hong Kong... I could go on but like or not we are the best greatest country on earth and our people the most generous. Everyone wants us to save their ass and throw money at them but they wouldn't piss on us to put us out if we were on fire! And you think we should let a bunch of religious nutcases have nukes? Tell ya what Hipster go stand next to the Hiroshima memorial study your history and get back to me after you visit the Arizona.. My next vacation? Standing in the surf at Omaha beach trying to imagine what it was like for a 19yr old kid from Pittsburg who never been more tha 20 mi from home before he died in the water... sent there to save a bunch of ungrateful pricks from a dictator...

    @ Bolded: LOL, no. Between Russia, France and Britain there's a victory. Russia had almost unlimited resources.

    Yeah may be true, but UK were clever, and even came with the "Keep calm and carry on" So people wouldn't be in panic, they would carry on with their lives normally while the soldiers were defeating germany... They had less man power and less planes, but still won and wasted less lives

    Pardon me however, I wish not to flame but to express points and facts in counter to your statement that the United States starts and stretched many wars.

    The Hundred Years' War: England and France

    WW I and II: Never started by the United States, and because of the first, the US attempted as best it could to remain not a part of the second.

    There are many more I could offer, however I find it unnecessary.

    I understand we are a young country in comparison to many, however pointing fingers grants no other validity in their opinions. You may offer all the facts that you wish in the clearest, most concise, and credible research. It shall mean nothing in the flow of time and progression and the mind(s) of humanity, in turn it only accredits that individual to common bark and no strive to aid or even tolerate such an issue. There is no shame in understanding accepted fact and opinion, but to preach it is another thought entirely.
