If you wonder why Americans are hated around the world, you have the Ugly American to thank.

A mysterious change seems to come over Americans when they go to a foreign land

If you’ve followed the link above, then what I am about to tell you here is REAL! These incidents were all witnessed at different airports.


On a recent trip overseas and in three different countries, I am sad to say that this is what I witnessed. In once situation, an American who must have been in a hurry, chose to ignore basic mannerism and shoved through lines all the way to the escalator, ignoring angry looks from different nationalities.


In another airport, one American Marine, soldier or whatever he was, did not hesitate to make an ass of himself. He walked int the departure lounge, threw his backpack on the floor and used it as a pillow, closed his eyes and stretched his legs, not giving a damn as to whom he might have blocked or inconvenienced. He suddenly opened his eyes as two teen-age French kids were playing with their cell phone, and yelled out loud: “..Hey.. Hey.. turn that off!” He has every right to do so! He’s… American!


At another airport yet, two marine-like individuals, seemed to be polite until one got up and walked to the counter at a cafeteria, cutting through the line without uttering the word “excuse me” and reached over a customer’s hand who was attempting to get his coffee.. this was quite a scene as the observer would have thought that this marine was about to take the person’s coffee. I was sitting at a table next to the two marines and overheard one stating (with a broad grin): “The $###er thought I was gonna steal his cup!”

And then we wonder why they hate us!

Wre also have this person to thank…


“I just don’t think it’s the role of the United States to walk into a country and say, we do it this way, so should you ….but I think one way for us to end up being viewed as the ugly American is for us to go around the world saying, we do it this way, so should you…..I think the United States must be humble and must be proud and confident of our values, but humble in how we treat nations that are figuring out how to chart their own course.”
