Reader comment on item: Hating America's Success

Submitted by Alain Jean-Mairet (Switzerland), Oct 12, 2004 at 12:43

As a kid, down here in the centre of Europe, I learned indeed that Coca-Cola was a kind of poison. Then I was educated to think that current Americans were the offspring of some sort of ex-criminals from Europe [like Australians] who had become mass murderers, stealing the peaceful Indians' country. Then I heard they killed countless innocent Vietnamese peasants from the sky, and generally supported the worst tyrants on earth in order to stay rich or to become richer, because the dollar was their whole religion and culture.

Today, I cannot listen to any news on the radio without being told over and over how stupid their president is, how aggressive and useless their military interventions are, how dangerous, untrustworthy, unintelligent they are.

It is a most astonishing thing that Americans still don't hate us!
