The very fact this thread exists says more about the USA's insecurities than any other country.

i seriously doubt it , if you get two people who are like chalk and cheese , they are rarely insecure about each other , two similar personalitys are more likely to be concerned with how the other is doing in comparison to them

france and the usa are two different for that

You know....since the Chargers, Challengers, and until recently the Camaro, are/were built up here. lol



Oh, also.....I apologise. I didn't mean to take your thread of topic.
Other than the Charger, those were Pony Cars. The SS and GTO were the dominant muscle cars, and they were built in the US. The Charger, by the way, was built in the US.

The ultimate American car, the Corvette, has always been and will always be Made In America.

You must not like Canadians then.

Uh, stop creating threads like this and people will stop bashing Americans. People usually bash Americans when Americans are acting arrogant, superior and that everywhere else is inferior. Do yourself a favour and stop.

Somehow I don't think the US wins the "Most Hated Country" award. These days I think that one goes to North Korea. Even China has cooled towards them.

The Buick Grand National little 3.8 turbo charged V6 put an awesome beating on those vaunted vettes and pretty much everything else that they went up against on equal footing. don't know where that was built though.

Now your basic Ford F150, as prolific as doggy doo, were built up here as well in St.Thomas.

Aaaaah; I could kiss ya! Both cheeks even!

Can't rep ya again though. Your first post got my rep point.

ON topic: I cannot but think had the post included the Mid East as a region instead of just individual countries, they would have gotten some count.

How about old Hugo Chavez's homeland?

Acknowledgement here: If you wish to identify folks who don't like you, simply stop inviting them to the party unless they bring their own booze. You'll find out pretty quickly who your friends are.

The Buick Grand National was just a Chevy Monte Carlo with a different name. Ugly things, both of them.

I suppose another way of asking this would be 'who has the most insecurities towards Canadians, Europeans and Mexicans?' The answer, I guess, would be a minority of Americans like the OP.

Of course there are plenty of people from the three countries mentioned that have a weird view of America and Americans based on their own insecurities. But there are others who are critical for more rational reasons. To me it come across, paradoxically, as indicative of insecurity on the OP's part that he would phrase the question as he has.
