And the whole of central North America just naturally belong to the Americans? I'm sure the Native American tribes had a different point of view.

And if you are complaining that Britain's imperialism was bad can you please explain why there are delegates for Puerto Rico and the Philippines in the U.S Congress.

No because you guys have been more technology advanced, and just to tell you Britain is not all and powerful, because you guys have had possibly had the worst leaders ever for one nation.

Well we weren't the ones who nuked the Japanese, nor did we commit mass genocide against the Native American population, or continue the slave trade several decades after the rest of the civilised world abolished it.

The massive genocide toward the Native Americans came before the USA being formed. That one is on you guys. And, we got our slaves from you guys.

"The massive genocide toward the Native Americans came before the USA being formed."

United States Ethnic Cleansing programme

"That one is on you guys"

Our only contribution to the genocide was being unfortunate enough to spread diseases like every other nation on the planet.

"And, we got our slaves from you guys."

Then you could have got rid of your slaves when we got rid of ours.

The U.S. is a controlling, self righteous country that always thinks it is doing the honourable and right thing to do but actually is doing something despicable, the Vietnam war for example.

Also Americanisation is destroying many countries cultures and identities.

Oh, so as long as you acknowledge that you are doing all those things in the name of making Britain better and not for a good cause it is ok. Got it. That's what the Republicans keep telling the Democrats.

I'm going to say the U.S.

Not in general, but the most harm done to their own citizens - definetly the U.S. It's one thing to defend for your own - but to cause so much grief for your own. Down right dirty :/

There is no doubt that the USA has been the greatest terrorist and the worst human rights violator in the history of mankind. I like the USA for other reason, and surely it has been the most charitable nation in history. Where do I start? The Tuskegee or Guatemala experiments?

I am actually of the opinion that Britain's imperialism did the world a great service, in setting up a worldwide communication network by which we can communicate across cultures, and share ideas of right and wrong. It seems that certain ideas, rather than being seen as being imposed by Western culture, are being universally received as right and modern, and it's a beautiful thing that we can all agree with the notion that people want peace, and they want to love each other. This would not have happened without Britain setting up a framework in foreign countries by which they could exchange goods and services, and set up business relationships.

The US, on the other hand, has taken this great system of a global market, exploited it and corrupted it, and could possibly be about to destroy it. First, we have pumped the world markets full of our dollars, then we robbed them of their value and inflated them, knowing that everyone in the world was already too deep into the system to immediately back out from it, then we sold out, our debt spiraling out of control, using our military in a series of ventures that contradict all of those very ideals (possibly being fed monies and sweetheart deals from a corrupt theocracy that would like totalitarian control over much of the Middle East, or even the world), and destroy the principles that made the global markets just in the first place. We might even destroy the possibility of a global market if we collapse. Is this not possible you say? There is a first time for everything!
