Internet & Networking A new resolution introduced in the US Senate offers political backing to the Bush administration by slamming a United Nations effort to exert more influence over the Internet. At the heart of this international political spat is the unique influence that the US federal government enjoys over Internet addresses and the master database of top-level domain names - a legacy of the Internet's origins years ago. The Bush administration recently raised objections to the proposed addition of .xxx as a red-light district for pornographers, for instance, a veto power that no other government is able to wield.

God, your post made me think of what my English teacher (who was a US citizen living in France) told us: there is a big conception in US that the rest of the world hate them, that the rest of the world is full of bad people who want to gain something from them.

I never thougth that was actually true....

Read the comments on this article. Here, at least, everybody else DOES seem to hate us.

But did you also read the posts from your fellow countrymen that actually gave a reason to hate you?

I've read almost every article. But I live in France, and we talked a lot about what we think of US citizens. Things are very different from what it seems. I have been really impressed with some US citizens, who have been the most cultivated persons I've met. I love the way you can react to bad events in your life and fight back to make it better. Believe me or not, but most of us really like US citizens, but we hate the arrogant ones (a small percentage that talks too much).

There is a problem of communication, that's for sure. And there are some cultural things I will never understand (patriotism for example). But never believe than the rest of the world hates you, that totally depends of who you personaly are.
