    Show me what I said that is wrong then
    -Americans foreign policy is terrible they have constantly been at war for decades and they are hated around the world because of it.

    It appears that you think America decides to go to war for the sheer hell of it, which is completely untrue. If you study the Cold War you'll realise that American foreign policy was generally geared towards stability, save for the Vietnam war perhaps where American involvement wasn't really warranted.
    For example, the Korean War was necessary to protect Japan, and mitigate Chinese hegemony within Asia. You also have to bear in mind that America was part of the completely new idea of the 'dual superpower complex', a phenomenon which had never occurred in history, and so naturally had to diverge from the traditional Westphalian model of diplomacy. How can you expect a country that historically anomalous to get everything right first time?

    In regard to the second part of your question, if everyone hated countries because they were at war, then I don't imagine there would be a lot of constructive diplomacy in the world. Heck, if that premise holds true, how come everyone doesn't hate the UK, since we managed to invade God knows how many countries and bring them into a draconian empire?

    -America has no culture whatsoever everyone knows that even Americans themselves.

    How do you define culture? Thanksgiving, 4th of July, Hallowe'en are all American institutions that form part of their culture. Music wise, America has had a rich history of producing world-class musicians; I'm afraid that just because it's not classical, doesn't mean it doesn't have cultural value.

    -American music may be influential but that is only because of the massive amount dollars behind these musicians.

    The Star Wars franchise may be influential but that's only because of the massive amounts of dollars behind the production, toys sales, advertisement, and high grade actors. You can't bash something for being influential just because it's well funded.

    Why are British people so conservative with issues such as multiple person dating? To the extent you get called a slut. This is a shocker. In America it doesn't really matter whether you're dating 5 men at once. It's only a ****ing date.
    You're "shocked" that girls who date "5 men" are called sluts? This is one of the major problems with American society. It is impossible to not be a "slut" and date so many people at once. If you wanted to date several people at once chances are you're either an attention whore or a "slut" who craves sexual attention from more than 1 male.

    Daniella, girl. Why are you asking this forum full of kids and trolls?! You can't say British people as a whole are so conservative with dating because although there are the conservative few who are like "OMG whore alert", I am sure there are plenty who date many guys at the same time and people around them are okay with others doing the same. I don't think talking to someone and going on dates with a few guys is an issue, my friends have gone on dates with different guys when they're just like dates. You enjoy your dates my lovely, don't bother with these guys

    America is viewed negatively around the world everybody knows that. Much of this is to do with Americans foreign policy in many regions around the world. People also hate the UK but I am only responding to what she has said I am not talking about the UK here.

    America has no culture this is widely known even by Americans themselves. You talk about Thanksgiving & 4th of July, let's be real here most Americans don't even know the history of these dates or even what they represent for example in this video



    American music is mostly negative look at the hip hop music calling women *****es and ho's, talking about killing black people and calling black people the n word. It's not just hip hop music either majority of it represents materialism and the lack of values that is in America especially. These people for the most part have very little values and that comes from a lack of any culture.
