You know what most Americans hate? Somebody who thinks they're better than us.
You know what most Americans love? Feeling superior to everyone else on the planet.
This is, of course, a broad generalization but I doubt few reading this, and
currently residing within the U.S. borders, would dispute such a claim. I don't
know if this is a uniquely American foible but it's certainly one of the reasons
we are seemingly so blithe about the deaths, and the continuing deaths, of tens
of thousands of innocent men, women and children in Iraq.
How dare they have those WMD's (which they didn't). How dare they threaten our
country (which they never did). How dare they acquire yellow-cake uranium (which
they didn't). How dare they have all that oil (which we're stealing and selling
to other countries... probably in Euros). How dare they train Al Qaeda (which
they didn't). How dare they buy those aluminum tubes to, uh, well, whatever.
How dare they attack us on 9-11. (Sigh)
As we all know, the American way of life is superior to all others, even when
it isn't. We're number 53 in freedom of the press, number 18 out of 24 in education,
42nd in average life span.
The things we're best at is the polluting of the air , the purchasing of pet
clothing, the average poundage of our citizenry, the size of our military and
the number of nuclear weapons in our arsenal.
We're currently only #2 in infant mortality in the developed world but we're
gaining fast on #1. Party on, dudes!
