Provided you substitute America for The United States of America, of
course, since the former is two continents, the latter is a country...

I do not having anything in particular against the US per se, but rather
against its foreign policy, its "president"'s blatant disregard for
democracy (no, I'm not talking about the invasion of Iraq, I'm talking
about the rigged election), and the total double standards of the
military doctrine (yes, here I'm talking about Iraq, but mostly about
weapons of mass destruction... Who has most of them? The US. Who are the
most frequent users? The US...)

The rest of the annoyances in the US, such as the MPAA, RIAA, stupid
laws, Microsoft, etc all have their counterparts in the rest of the
world, the US versions just get more focus in the news.

Then again, at least Italy has a pretty good counter-part to Bush in mr
Silvio Berlusconi.
