Most Americans really don't know how abusively their superpower status is projected in the rest of the world by the functionaries they appoint to represent them and how much ill will towards this country it causes.
Sounds like load of BS.
I was in American embassy, consulate at three different locations as Russian.
No diffrence from UK, Finnish embassies.
Last time I was in American consulate in Toronto, African descent security guard was speaking to me in Russian. He was resently from Russia, where he went to University for four years.
But my wife and I were harassed by typical Toronto white trash, walking with German sherpard unleashed behind USA consulate. Just because we were speaking non English.
