People will twist it around into a pretzel of nuance until the blame can be shirked onto the US.
I take great offence at this piece of whimpering nonsense. How self-pitying can u try to be?? Please stop trying to make the US to be the be-all and end-all when it comes to world issues. Yes, it has a major say in what goes on in our world but there are plenty of other countries which can and do get a bad rap. And if the US (or any other country) does get a bad rap there's usually a pretty good reason for it........otherwise why the hell do u think so many people get so pissed off? Just for the sake of it?

This idea that the rest of us just love to indulge in 'America-bashing' is such a cliched and juvenile thing at this stage. If a few people want to get involved in it that's up to them. But don't tell tar us all with the same brush.

As for the UN it's far from perfect but it's the best we've got. Unless u have any better ideas??
