I think there is, and its growing. Why? Because the US seems to be an easy target for all the worlds problems these days.

Partly to blame for that attitude today is the EU...it doesn't want any part of the US, for its own agenda..

From the point of us in the UK, we are NOT anti-American....not the majority of us anyway. And anyone who says different is either lying or has their own 'agenda'.

I think so often when people talk of Europe or the USA or whatever they are muddying the water really and not being clear. People of America and government of America being very different.

I agree that we muddy the water sometimes between a people and it's government, who in the their right mind would have the world the way it is now? certainly not most of us.

I have a fair amount of personal contact with folk from the USA, through friends, family, and work, and they seem ok to me.

I hate the division in my last sentence, allowing national boundaries to divide us.

We are all just souls seeking contentment and and love, except for the few at the top of the pyramid.

I agree with this.

I am "anti-American" in the sense "America" as a world power is a self-serving empire. This is not about "Americans" who are simply people just like the rest of us.

As a British citizen I am also "anti-British" in the same kind of way. "Britain" as a power is an arrogant, self -serving body that thinks it's special and is internally increasingly a complete mess. I understand why lots of people abroad dislike "the British", but please don't blame me for "Britiain".

As far as I'm concerned, nation states in general can go fuck themselves. The ordinary people within them are an entirely different matter.

Its the old 'blame game' isn't it. Pick an easy target.....America.

''Lets all give the declining superpower a kick while its down'' .... :roll:

Agreed with the above, blame the govt over there, not the American people. They're getting just as shafted as we are.

& as for people moaning about ''American culture taking us over'', well in my opinion they should be looking closer to home....again, EU.

What's so wrong with 'American culture' anyway?

Depends which parts.' American culture' is a very broad church. Some of it is great.
But stomping round the world insisting everyone be like them and prostrate themselves at the altar of the 'free market' hasn't done America's image any favours.

I think we should be worries about anti-British sentiment. I mean, look at Eurovision. Even Bonnie fucking Tyler came 19th.

Agreed.

We're now paying the price for having an 'empire' (not that it ever did the average Brit much good), & America is now paying the price for being a 'superpower'.

Personally, I'd rather have the US as a superpower than the ones that are now emerging.

I have lived amongst the Brits for many years now and I've always been treated with dignity and respect I love it here. Although recently I spent some time travelling through southern France(I'm a wine buff) and was dismayed by the open hostility towards me and Americans in general. I met a group of students who said they had been physically attacked and mistreated simply because they were Americans...It was quite upsetting to hear.

:D I find the French and their culture fascinating, but their aloofness can grate after a while. Italy is another country that doesn't appear to like Americans but I'm only generalizing from of my own experiences.

I find it odd when otherwise intelligent human beings think it is acceptable to display xenophobia towards the French or whoever it might be.

I agree.

Any 'anti-French' sentiments that might seem to be apparent in my post above are purely flippant. I like everybody, and treat people the way I expect to be treated in return, wherever they come from. ;)

Even France.,.. :chuckle:

Of course I was generalizing but simply pointing out my limited observations while I was there.

"Anti-american sentiment" comes from the same source as "anti-semite" whining.

Fact of the matter, the americans and brits are oppressors, invaders and occupiers, who hold a monopoly on opinion, deception, hypocrisy and looting.

It is hell about time the Europeans cast out the invaders,. this cancerous US and britsh military tumour in the heart of Europe..

I expected no different.

Who are those "americans" doing the snivel? They usually belong to a certain tribe of rootless international travellers.
But no doubt, Chatham House dedicatedly hate Germans and have never stopped to wage war on Germans.

Correct. But international travellers sound bit more PC. :notworthy:

Chatham House is also riddled and infested by hostile agents, since decades.
So who are those "americans", or "brits", usually members of the Israel mafia lobby, as over 80% of the British deputies are "Friends of Israel". It is even worse in France.
