The United States (of which I am a card-carrying member) has its share of problems and has made many mistakes. With that said, it seems people look at the country like they look at lawyers...everybody hates them until they need one. Where would wonderfully enlightened, compassionate Europe be, ahem, without the good old USA? (Or have you chosen to purge world wards one and two from your history books?) I seem to remember more recently when Liberia was in the throes of agony that they were wondering why the United States did not hurry up and get there. And on it goes, ad infinitum.......
