While id agree strongly with all the points in the original post I think the language in the subject header is far too over emotive.
If someone referred to Ireland as "sick" or "evil" because of some Government policy (and many Irish Govt policies are sick and evil) people would be up in arms and rightly so expecially since the words dont distinguish between the country and Its Government.
While many Americans have been over sensetive (especially in the last six months) to criticisim of their Government. The critics oten unfairly single out the US. Sure the US Government has done some sick and evil things but so have many other Governments and many other Governments have been far far worse. Oh and now and again the US govt do some right things too.
