Reader comment on item: [Symposium:] Why Does the World Hate America?

Submitted by chris williams (United Kingdom), Jun 8, 2005 at 15:31

I am British, born in the early 90's, I am still a teenager.

i do not believe that the majority of the developed world has any kind of problem with America, or Americans. The USA is simply viewed as another country....in fact, the US is seen as a good place, a place where more things are possible and where life is generally better.

i belive that hatred against America in the middle east comes from the fact the muslim-based societies have failed, and instead of looking at their own faults, the middle east has tried to bring the US down with it, and failing to do this has angered them.
America is a successful and briliiant country and even if you do not agree with what the government chooses to do, Americans cannot be judged: they are human beings and at the end of the day, DO YOU CONTROL WHAT YOUR GOVERNMENT DOES?
i think America is great! and anti-americanism is made to seem alot worse than it actually is by the world's media!
