You bring up interesting points. However I am focusing on the topic of the thread "Exporting Democracy is why the World resents us" Unfortunately I am unable to proceed with the points made in the link (I only skimmed them over) provided because it is a straw man argument. I think the subject of "Why the world hates us (Americans)" is interesting and worthy of discussion, if it is correct, but I'd like specific evidence of this hate to be presented: Soandso says so, some polls, excerpts from other countries periodicals/TV etc. While we're at it, please define hate and "whole". Pat Buchanan is basically claiming to be the spokesperson for the world.
Another interesting topic could be, why is he framing the topic the way he is? Alas, a matter for another thread, in my opinion.
