The rabid vehemence you project towards America is in reality the abject sense of self-loathing and unfulfillment misdirected towards a country you secretly admire and hope to ever aspire to, the greatest country history has ever known, the greatest country ever.
Don't let the world's America-bashers fool you for a moment. America is the very model of what they wish they themselves could be, the very embodiment of a reigning world superpower the French can only dream about.

Only in your wildest fantasies,froggies.

This article is a direct refutation of Clinton's latest bloviation, claiming that the Bush administration 'alienated' the world.

Jeane Kirkpatrick called this crowd the "blame America first" crowd back in the 1980s ... another Republican president and they are at it again.

The international hate-America phenomenon, like the homeless-problem, only occurs at very suspect times. If these bankrupt socialists had to pay for their own national security instead of sucking us dry, we'd have a lot more allies.
With friends like this, who needs enemies?
We should put out attention and dollars into "new" europe instead of these rotting tourist-whores.

The United States, they imply, squandered global sympathy after the September 11 terrorist attacks through its arrogant unilateralism.

In other words, America didn't grovel before the world and beg forgiveness for its alleged sins. Instead, it chose to kick terrorism's ass. God bless America, land that I love.

Damned if we do, and damned if we dont!

Now if someone would only answer the real question:

Who wants the USA to hate them back, first?

The United States need not worry about hearts and minds in foreign lands. If Germans wish to use anti-Americanism to absolve themselves and their parents of the great crimes of World War II, they will do it regardless of what the United States says and does. If Muslims truly believe that their long winter of decline is the fault of the United States, no campaign of public diplomacy shall deliver them from that incoherence.

Wow!

"The frenzy with which radical Islamists battle against deportation orders from U.S. soil? dreading the prospect of returning to Amman and Beirut and Cairo? reveals the lie of anti-Americanism that blows through Muslim lands."

Exactly

"To maintain France's sympathy, and that of Le Monde, the United States would have had to turn the other cheek to the murderers of al Qaeda, spare the Taliban, and engage the Muslim world in some high civilizational dialogue. But who needs high approval ratings in Marseille?"

Who indeed?!!

"There is energy in the United States, and there is force. And there is resistance and resentment and emulation in older places affixed on the delicate balancing act of a younger United States not yet content to make its peace with traditional pains and limitations and tyrannies."

Faoud Ajami,..........I'm speechless.
