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??

Many other countries have contributed to computer. Also, all these computer are made in the Middle East and China. Not America. 

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

I should expect no less.

Come on man, you are taking this too far. It's not like this is a war. It's just an expression on opinion. 

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.

The countries that America is helping actually need help. they can't stand up on their own. Let's look at the earth as a whole, and all of us as human. Not as individual countries, that are completely different. We are one.

Cardinal Coog, we Brits have contributed:

Jet Engine
Light bulb (Yup that's right it was a Brit, not Edison!!!) Joseph Swan if you're interested
The Steam Engine
The World Wide Web
The Telephone
The Televisions
The Military Tank
Some of the greatest cars that ever existed (no Britain did not invent the car, but neither did America)

Case and Point !!!!!!!!!

And please never mention WW1 and WW2, the Americans act like some heroes that saved us. The reality is that they were hardly involved until 1917 when the Germans sank the Louisitania and 1942 when Japan attacked Pearl Harbour. Unlike the Brits who were involved from the start because we seen the threat of the Germans and went to out fellow nations aid.

I think there is no point in comparing "what has your country contributed".

That whole feeling of patriotism makes no sense to me.

Only because some guy that lives in your country has invented something cool, doesn't in any ways mean "your country achieved something". If that guy who invented this and that lived in another place you wouldn't care. But only because he is also living in the same country doesn't make you as individual better or smarter or more important.

Saying we are good because my land did this and that is crap.

Where you were born and where you live should not be of any importance.

It  is about how you behave and what you do with your live.

"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.

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

I should expect no less."

Point 2 of my original post was Americans suffer from superiority complex, you're proving my point on stereotypes.

If I don't respond immediately, I am not surrendering, I just don't regularly check this site or my e-mail.

To state, I don't believe that England is better than America, nor do I believe America is greater than England, we each have our pros and cons. What I will say is that Americans have a great amount of pride over their country, that is something I wish more of the English had.

I am from Israel
Everyone here knows that America is awesome but also likes to make fun of the American stereotype of "fat and stupid" even though no one actually thinks that way or means to insult anyone
Anyway I moved to America from Israel and all my Israeli friends are excited to know someone that lives in America.
And there is also the fact that America gives Israel 5 billion dollars a year for economic and military reasons.
