It is true that America is important to many other countries but what you say makes you sound arrogant. You think of other countries as little kids... You are our moms and dads... That is just not true. Of course it would be alot different for us without America. But you say it like everyone would instantaneously die if America stopped existing.

Don't get me wrong. You've got a point. But the way you say it makes you sound arrogant.
I see it as humans helping out other humans and working together to create a nice way of living and don't like to reduce anyone to where he comes from.

And what you also forgot is that America aswell profits from many other countries like they profit from America. It's not a one way ticket. There is always at least two sides to it.

I would guess that approximately 85-percent of the people using computers are using Microsoft products (created in the U.S.), 10-percent using Mac (created in the U.S.) and 5-percent using Linux. 

Like I said, that is a guess/rough estimate.

The point is: What exactly has your country contributed??

Jonas, if hearing the truth hurts your feelings and makes Americans sound arrogant; well, I'll shed a tear:'(

When other countries step up to the plate and take care of themselves we will all be better off as a people.

No point in discussing further I guess.

Guess you're waving the "white flag" of surrender?

I should expect no less.

It really depends on a person, so it's hard to say for the whole country.

From my country point of view (Serbia):

In the 1999, we had a place that was ours for about 30 years. Then, Albanians decided to conquer it. Our military was trying to defend our own continent, but no, Americans had to come and bomb the sh*t out of us with airplanes and everything they've got, because we were defending ourselves, of course.

I don't know the history very much but that event was the most tragic one, many civilians were killed in the bombings and blowing the bridges up, it was not cool. I was crossing the bridge, escaping from the bombs and literally 2 minutes after I crossed the bridge, a bomb fell and devastated the bridge completely, I guess i'm lucky to be alive...

60% of people hate america because of those things and because of american corrupt government (most of the hate is because of the government).
40% of people like it because it is the best place for a living, graduating and having a stable job.

@Milan. Thank you for sharing your experience with us. Sorry, you had the misfortune

But, you did admit that you do not know history.... 

Once, you do take the time to research what actually happened, I'll be more than willing to listen.

I thought bucky asked the non americans about their opinions...

@Jonas... Bucky did ask "non-Americans" to opine. He never said that Americans could not reply. I will stick up for the United States until the day I die. 

I feel that I have been extremely open and tolerant to your opinions.

At this point, I feel you're ganging up against me. But, guess, what?

I'm an American. I don''t go hide in the corner and ask Mommy and Daddy and Mr. Putin to bail me out. 

The reason you don't like America is because we have balls, we have money and your socialist government is a failure.

People in Pakistan, actually like Mercia. They have helped us a lot, and slowly many of the problems are fading away thanks to America's helpful support.
