Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The world has turned more unforgiving towards the entire population of the USA since the re-election of GWB in 2004 - as I (and many others) feared it would do. The majority of the voting half of the USA population in 2004 catalysed the destruction of the dream of America for the rest of the world - despite commendable efforts and apologies. Of course the destruction of the appreciation for USA was already accelerating under the first presidency of George W. Bush. Already in 2003 the USA was the most resented -nation- of the world, if I remember right.

I am in awe of your intentions and efforts to set the record straight - but you're fighting the hardest thing there is: a narrative. Welcome to the club.
