We are very disrespectful towards America and American culture. Seems like we cant go more than a few sentences without taking some jab at them. This is a trend that I find disturbing. America saved Europe from the Nazis, they subsidize our national safety today as well. They are the most innovative country, yet we still mock them. I would like for us to become more respectful

America is a huge and the most powerful nation in the world. And like with anything when you the most powerful you are going to get haters.

The US is also a very immature state only as old as Jamaica with grotesque Human Rights record and an out-of-control Plutocracy.
They need our maturity and guidance more than we need them. A healthy disrespect is in order.

they mock us, we can mock them too surely?
if they brand us a bunch of posh tea-sipping toffs, surely we can brand them stupid rednecks?
surely it's a two-way street? literally, pretty much all americans see us like that - it's a bit more than just a generalisation. even americans I've met who were *trying* *not* to stereotype brits even did it in imaginable ways. at least we as brits can see americans in a rational way - it's a shame they can't do it back

True, but look at some of the clowns we have (without mentioning any names).
I'm sure the Yanks would mock us - if they had any knowledge of the outside world!

Honestly the UK doesn't have nearly as many loonies as the yanks, or at least they aren't taken seriously to the point where they run for office etc, they are kept away from the mainstream and are paraded as zoo animals in the UK, whereas in the US they actually have millions of supporters

To anyone not blinded by bias, it was clear that that was a collateral damage case. Unfortunate, but not criminal.

Anyone who compares America's human rights records with Saudi Arabia's needs to get out of the bubble of trendy US-hating and wake up to reality. This is a state that regularly performs public beheadings; honestly, how deluded can you get?

Um, I'm guessing he'll say something along the lines of "Vinton cerf + Robert Kahn invented the internet and they are both American."(?)

History is always taught in schools from your own countries' narrative. Russia didn't play a part? Did they not push back the Nazis from advancing beyond Moscow in 1942(with a little help from winter)? Who advanced on Berlin from the east in 1945? What part did the US play in the battle of Britain ? America didn't save Europe from the Nazis, the allies did ; it was a collective effort.
