What about what America did for you in World War 2? What about what the USA did for the world in WW1 and WW2?

Always the Euros hold up their nose if we ask for help like they are above us. Without the USA you would be speaking Japanese and England would be speaking German.

Millions of Americans died in those wars.

Holy shit just fuck off. We are eternally indebted because America decided to get off it's lazy ass and actually help in the global conflict?

America was supporting Indonesia at a time where Australia was trying to stop Indonesia from slaughtering thousands of East Timorese in the 60's. America asked us what the English did... to send our men and women over to die for a country they had never set foot on. America seems to think it can just have a strangle hold on the world because we're all 'indebted' to them when they dragged us into a financial crisis, and they are the ones who are constantly pushing back renewable energy when even China and India are jumping on that train.

American corporations evade our, and many other tax laws, and American governments subvert basic human rights. They are a blight on the world community. And I'm not even saying they're the worst... I'm saying they're the most self rightous. People like you show the rest of the world that America still has a perception that we are still 'indebted' to them no matter what. At least China and India admit to their wrong doings, and are at least making attempts to fix them.

So get over your American centric views, and see that there is a lot of American hate out there. I dislike the culture, the government, and the history. The people are often quite nice, and that is the only thing that really saves it anymore.

Kind of feel like that account might be trolling you. I hope you don't take that behavior as indicative of the rest of us yankees' attitudes.

Millions of America died in WW1 and WW2? Where did you get those numbers from? https://vimeo.com/128373915

He is from Australia and the EU is still very grateful for the US. In fact, as that video will show you, Russia is the country that should deserve a shitton more credit.
