It would appear you are a victim of the media, just like us "Brits". You believe that all Brits are angry violent youths who are given a free ride to terrorize just as some of us believe that all Americans are fat gun toting patriots. Now most of us understand that these are ideas fed to us by media and government. Most rational and educated people don't have negative views of Americans. don't get me wrong, there are many racist, religious people in the UK. I think you'll find that is the case in most Western cultures, but the majority of us are nice people who enjoy a lot of American culture. I do have a certain distain for our current government and the previous one...and the previous one etc. I also don't like the way your government has been running things either. Your post indicates you're guilty of the very same thing you hate us for. We are not all anti americans!! Please don't generalize? :)
