No, we never found the WMDs. IMO, they were just a fabrication of the Bush administration in a desperate attempt to make a case for war. And what really gets me angry, is that, to this day, Bush still stands by the decision to go to war.

It's like how Americans say, "Blame Canada". It's completely ignorant, when actually Canada has a reason to hate the US, while US residents are just ignorant morons blaming Canada. I mean Canada gets acid rain just because the US puts out so much pollution. I mean most US citizens have horrible sense of geography anyway and can't even locate the Middle Eastern part of the world, much less Iraq, and most can't even locate where France is, if I'm correct. One of the most ignorant things was how US citizens also changed French Fries into Freedom Fries. The French had nothing to do with their creation, so using that as any kind of indirect attack is stupid. It's just the United States can be SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO stupid sometimes. I know. I'm not proud to be an American right now... especially since people think France actually betrayed us or something... if anything we betrayed the United Nations. t-_-t

Matt, don't jugde America because of some people, VT is just a close minded *******, ignore him.

I think speaking any launguage has nothing to do with presidency or elections.

I agree completely. the US must have the highest population of ignoramuses on the planet -_-

And DP, no one's judging America; he's just commenting on popular American beliefs.

The Romans were ignorant, The British at one time were ignorant, the French at one time were ignorant, all of the greatest world powers are ignorant.

In my opinion, most people in every single country around the world are ignorant. No one knows everything, and by the results of many polls it seems like not many know anything at all. How many of us know every current event in every city of the world? I know there's a few of us who don't.
So, if we're expected to have an opinion on different cultures, most of the time people go with what they're told or what they've heard about that country or culture. And that to me is very ignorant.

Countries have always "blamed" other countries or cultures. A lot of the time in the past (and still in the present) it's been Jewish people.
But really I don't think that many Americans "blame Canada".
that's a very old stereotype, that's been heightened by South Park and other forms of entertainment/media.

But anyway. Americans don't have a gene of ignorance. We have something that kinda stunts our knowledge, it's called the media and the news. They pump the US with "patriotism" and they make other countries seem so backwards, when they're really not.
