Where do you get off thinking your country is so brilliant? You have more gun crime, adult illiteracy, and obesity than most 'developed' countries... And let me tell you something; you might think America is an all-powerful nation, but if you trully turned against the world and tried to 'conquer' it; you'd be flattened by every country with so much as a rock to throw, from every angle. Sure, the US military is powerful, but here's something people like you don't get- it's not omnipotent.

The real reason people hate the US is because of people like you. Yeah; there are very poor African countries that are in a lot worse shape than North America, but the US is like the arrogant jerk that drives the fast sports coupé around and sneers at everyone else's car- eventually one day they're too busy sneering and they crash, and they're left with nothing; whilst everyone else around them just laughs and carries on living.
