From Conservapedia

While I am not anti-American per say I do not have respect for Bush. However I agree that anti-American sentiment is alive and well. AdenJ 07:25, 18 May 2008 (EDT)

I'll have to research further, but:
"I have indicated it was not in conformity with the UN charter. From our point of view, from the charter point of view, it was illegal." - Kofi Annan
Are we sure the initial invasion of Iraq had UN approval?
yes it did: [1][2][3][4][5][6] Karajou 10:11, 22 May 2008 (EDT)

Proposal

Maybe it is a good idea to explore the "why" behind there being so much anti-American sentiment, yes? What is it that causes it? It could make for an interesting investigation and article. After all, people do not wake up and say, "I hate America." --JessicaTOhayo gozaimasu! 08:06, 18 May 2008 (EDT)

I completely agree with JessicaT on this. --X. Dulks

Reason

I dont think people are Anti-America more they are anti-Bush. I have been to America and thought the people and places were wonderful however when ever I Bush mbling with the English language and people like Rumsfeld lie through their teeth I get very grumbly. AdenJ 05:46, 19 May 2008 (EDT)

Wait...

Does criticism really constitute anti-Americanism? Criticism can be constructive and is key to progress- I think there are better ways to put this. --DReynolds 22:49, 2 February 2009 (EST)

"...and many are liberals who believe that other nations are equal to or beyond America in their achievements." [I will choose to be diplomatic here and not focus on the fact that America itself is not a country at all but a continent.] Are we supposed to bury our heads in the sand and forget that other countries achieve things, too? If we allow ourselves to believe that the USA always has and always will be number one at everything (which the USA's masses do already), the USA cannot possibly hope to move in any forward direction, much less stay competitive or diplomatic with other nations. This article, in my opinion, crosses the line from conservative to over-nationalist, far-right propaganda. --X. Dulks
