Sometimes the best way to tell what other nations think of the U.S. is to see how Americans are depicted in entertainment products. Judging by this translated excerpt from the Iranian television drama “Guantanamo” (granted, subject matter must also weigh heavily in the equation), our international PR leaves a lot to be desired. (Hint: Does the American male interrogator figure remind you of another historical stock figure in film and TV?)

Scary, isn't it? George Bush and his neocon agenda have caused one of the greatest nations ever to exist to seem to be populated by heartless monsters...all in 7 short years. :evil:

No wonder we're hated around the world! Can you imagine being a US ambassador? I wonder how any of them explain what's happened to America.
