I don't think it's so much about discounting US cities but don't but
surprised if certain people don't come because of that.
For me it's more the US stance on the ABM treaty and their non-ratification
of the Convention on the Rights of the Child (the only other country being
Somalia). The fact that they're allowed to detain me and fingerprint me on
entry because I come from a dangerous country (Australia). Among many other
things. Other recent actions of the US are merely icing on the cake.
