Yep, that sums it up.

To our destruction of Indochina (done on purpose), to the drug wars that have destroyed Latin America, US imperialism has been a force for evil and destruction.
So, are you saying that Russia/the Soviet Union has been less evil? How about China or Iran?

You have to choose a side. Which side will you pick?

Might makes right. Money talks and BS walks. It has never been an issue of right or wrong. People gravitate to and follow the most powerful. All of the colonial powers committed atrocities on a massive scale. More recently Russia, Germany, Japan, Italy committed massive atrocities in WWII. Today people look up to the US as well as all our WWII enemies which are now all first world economies and powers. Had Germany got the A Bomb before the US did, we'd all be living in the Third Reich, wearing swastikas and laying wreaths on statues of Hitler. That's just the way the world is and has always been.

Most nationalists will never agree that America is evil, as you see the reactions here. It's a legitimate question but we kind of run the world at the moment so that's why no one tries us. The ones who do, are labeled a dictator and a US backed cous kills the current administration and installs a puppet regime.

I’m on the side of the workers, not the state. Might never makes right, allowing imperial rule to dictate the fate of the people only leads to more death and suffering.

Expecting the US to act in any moral sense on the world stage is a delusion, it is all self-interest. If you care about people you’d want to stop such powers, not pick sides.

I have never met anyone, anywhere {including online} who has ever inferred that the US or Americans themselves are `evil`.

Do Americans get picked on, mocked, insulted, and ridiculed by nearly every country on the planet? Absolutely but that is part and parcel of being the most powerful country in the world. The US throws it`s weight around so conversely can`t really complain if other countries talk about it...…….you can`t have it both ways. Much of US society I still find bewildering and Canadians have given up trying to figure out their southern neighbours and if we can`t understand them then no one can.


Yes the US has a lot of dirty laundry but what country doesn`t? Did you that before the fall of the Soviet Union peace loving mild mannered Canada was the largest exporter of nuclear technology in the world? If you could fog a mirror then Canada would sell you a CANDU nuclear reactor. Where do you think India and Pakistan got their nuclear technology and hence bombs from? That`s right dear old Canada sold 2 archrivals in one of the most volatile regions in on the planet nuclear technology.


Anyone who thinks their country is squeaky clean is either shockingly ignorant or ideologically blind.

The problem is there are too many people in America who dislike America.

Foreign countries must be laughing at this because the easiest way to destroy a country is to simply have it implode from within.

Not true. The vast majority of Americans are brainwashed and vehemently support the state and attempt to silence any critics of ‘bipartisan American values’.
