----------------------------------- If you want to understand why so many countries loathe us, you have to understand how they see us. Whether you agree is irrelevant.
A few years back I was in #laos& chatted with a young Lao woman. She mentioned in passing the death of her father. What happened to him, I asked? Oh, she said, he died fighting the #Americans. A war that many Americans saw as a meritorious #crusadeagainst #communismwas, to the countries involved, an inexplicable #attackthat killed their fathers & brothers & children. They didn’t see why the internal affairs of their country were #America’s business.
Agree with them or don’t, but that’s why they hate us.
Americans, perhaps because they do not much travel, carry this to an extreme & regard their country as superior to all others. The #attitudeis highly annoying. Consider the #usfrom the point of view of others: America is both a rogue state & a bully, constantly attacking countries hopelessly inferior in #militarystrength: Cambodia, #Vietnam, Laos, Panama, #Cuba, #Iraq, Somalia, #Afghanistan, etc. #Civilrights? The US has more people in #prisonthan any other country. Many of our cities are festering slums. The world saw the victims of #Katrina. #Morality? The country is rife with #drugs, crime, #sex. America is tasteless & sordid. Look at the movies….
Yes, yes, some of that isn’t fair, & an American might ask, for ex., how an #arabcountry, practicing female #circumcision& not allowing girls to study, can lecture anyone on #morality. I agree. But how they see things determines their attitudes.
