Reader comment on item: [Symposium:] Why Does the World Hate America?
in response to reader comment: General response

Submitted by christopher (United States), Feb 19, 2010 at 03:45

I'm an American, and I'm certainly not posting this to bash you in any way. I just felt the need to make clear that while the U.S. isn't the most charitable country as many of us would like to believe, we do come to the forefront in humanitarian aide in times of crisis. Again, I'm not implying people from other nations don't do the same. I don't feel the need as an American to have a "pissing contest" with people from other nations. It's simply juvenile. I understand that we all take pride in our nation of birth.

I respect your opinion, and admire your civility.
