Free and brave, huh? They're two of the things that come to mind when I think about my country and countrymen. The only difference between the U.S.`s so called international stereotype and that of most other cultures is timing. In the past European, Middle Eastern, Far East, Russian, etc. cultures actually engaged in imperialism. Violently putting down resistance (or at least attempting it) to their ways of thinking. Ahhhh, but back in the day, that sort of thing was fine. Of course, there weren`t global sources of information like there is today. Long story short, leave us alone, and we`ll do the same. If however our "decadant" lifestyle forces you to blow up some buildings, or kill our citizens, expect to reap what you sow.
