Why People Hate America?

Interestng article: "Why people hate America?"

here's another: The Shock and Awe of American Ignorance.. according to this third article, National Geographic tested 18-24 year olds (we're talking young adults here) from 9 countries about various topics related to geography, and America finished second to last, ahead of only Mexico. Many Americans had trouble identifying the Pacific Ocean or New York state. 83% couldn't find Afghanistan on a map. Only 25% could pick the correct population of the United States on a multiple choice test, with the most common answer given by Americans as 1-2 billion (!!)

i'm NOT anti-America. I'm anti-ignorance. and i'm anti-war too, of course.
