They can hate us as long as they fear us too

Reader comment on item: Hating America's Success

Submitted by Jane (United States), Oct 12, 2004 at 16:50

We Americans are obsessed with being loved and being fair. I would rather be feared in today's world and I could care less what the French or anyone else thinks or feels about it. Jealousy of our success culturally, financially or whatever is their problem. Great article, Daniel !
