RVKrammer, God bless you and your son. Yes, we have been hated all over the world for many things and for many years. We are loved too, all over the world. I was in New Zealand a few years ago and an immigration official told me, "We love you Yanks but we HATE your government."
And in the Netherlands I got into a debate with a Frenchman who absolutely despised Americans. I was rescued by a number of other customers, in the establishment, who, like the Kiwi, loved Americans but had a huge dislike for our government and its policies. I don''t know if this helps the original question but I did want to respond to your response. We are hated world wide for our government and its policies. But, we are also loved for who we are, Americans. My heartfelt thanks to your son and you for his envolvement in keeping me safe. I appreiciate you both. Regards, Peter
