    I think then while the war on Iraq was going on and the height of Bush's reign, most of the world loathed America. I don't hate Americans that much anymore apart from the neo-conservatives. :P

    Ha ha ha! Call me me ignorant, fat, or whatever the heck you want! I AM an American and regardless of what anyone has to say, this beautiful, messed up country has been blessed by God! Sure it has its problems, just like a lot of other countries, but, you have freedom and opportunities you wouldn't dream of anywhere else. It's a country based on taking chances. We put more faith in people than anywhere else in the world! We are constantly striving to change to try and make it better. And part of the recent problems we have had to endure is because of the HATE that people from other countries have for us! Take your judgements somewhere else, I will leave that to God thank you! All you Americans on this forum should be supporting our country not bashing it!

    I feel like just because a lot of Americans are ignorant and the American government does a lot of bad/stupid things doesn't mean you should have a bad perception of Americans as a whole. Even though the most well known and the most common Americans are ignorant and rude a lot of the people are just stereotyped and misunderstood. Yes there are a lot of ignorant rude overall obnoxious people in the united states but the United States is huge and the attitude and personality of the people changes from city to city and state to state so there is no real personality trait that all Americans have.

    By the way I know a lot of really cool and really ignorant people in America but, please don't judge/stereotype all Americans it's a huge country and every city has a different personality and type of people so don't assume anything. There are actually a lot of brilliant and cool people in america they're just overshadowed by the stupidity of other people and the politics in America

    I'm friends with people from a lot of other countries and I've asked them this question before. As a general consensus, they all came over here thinking that Americans were fat, lazy, and ignorant. They've learned since that this isn't the case with every person, but I've witnessed incidents myself in which an American has gone out of their way to make a negative comment or gesture.

    i think that other countries like people in the middle east dont like us because we are supposed to be a Christian country! i think that the people in Europe dont like us because they probably are being judgmental and think everyone in America are fat, non useful people and the people in Asia look down on us because we bombed Japan in 1945. but what do i know?

    Americans can be kind of ignorant at times, but don't blame the people, blame the news shows. They usually only show National events, and have a small feature on international events. Also the school systems can be kind of sub-par, but the government is trying to fix that, there are after school programs, and international programs. Some Americans can be over-weight, but the restaurants and schools are trying to encourage healthy eating in cafeteria and at home. But all together, we Americans are in trouble due to the recession, and recent cut backs in spending.

    I am not of American descent, nor was I born here. But what I have learned, is that many countries do not support America, which confuses me as to why they come running for help from the U.S. in the case of emergencies. I understand that we all have opinions in such cases, but without the U.S., many countries would be run down and over-taken. he only opinion that I have, is that if others hate the U.S. so much, try and get your governments to stop asking for aid and other such things. If these countries are so independent, survive on your own.

    I agree with you, (I'm personally American myself) one or two people can ruin the perception of a whole country to other people. If she can't even read what the question is she should not be posting on this thread. I know I shouldnt have posted on this either but I couldnt hold it in.

    Well, I actually conducted a similar survey recently for an essay I have to write, and the general consensus seems to be that Americans are a bunch of bumbling, belligerent idiots. Though I did get some neutral replies, and some people said that they didn't hate the people, but the government, but when your government is "we the people", that's not really saying much (though I personally believe we have given most of our power over to the various corporations and such, but this is getting off topic).

    Also, I'm kind of offended by a couple of the Americans who have replied to this thread, honestly. You're making us look bad, stop it. D:<

    In general they like Americans and they admire the American system, not talking about extremists just in general.

    Well it actual says "What do people from other countries think of americans in general?".....aren't you american? So really what you say about it does not really mater unless it's factual.

    That is what I meant.

    "Yes it does"....are commenting on that you are American or what you said (you think) is factual.

    That small statement doesn't really make much sense.

    lol. Ok, seriously people, I posted all that like years ago when I first joined because I thought it would be funny to see everybody get so ruffled about it. Obviously it worked then. But in truth, I think Americans are.... how do I put this...? Well you can't really label them. Everybody is different. There really is no "general," because people bring their own culture here. I guess the only way I really think about Americans in general is that they are crazy, strange, wild barbarians that want what they want because they know they can get it. I don't mean for this to sound selfish (even though most AMericans are) but I think you understand what I mean. If not, just comment back. And seriously people, give it a break. It's not like the world is going to end if some 13-year-old idiotic girl posts something that's moronic.

    Like I said above. I was an idiotic 13-year-old who thought it'd be funny to get other people going. And you know what? I find it hilarious that it worked. =D
