The following quote was mentioned at my church today and I thought it was worthy to repeat. As much as people are anti-American, it is something you can't deny. We have people willing to die trying to cross the border. Are they crossing the border because America sucks? No. It is because we still remain the county of opportunity.

In January 2003, during his address to British ambassadors in London, Tony Blair said the following:
    First, we should remain the closest ally of the US, and as allies influence them to continue broadening their agenda. We are the ally of the US not because they are powerful, but because we share their values. I am not surprised by anti-Americanism; but it is a foolish indulgence. For all their faults and all nations have them, the US are a force for good; they have liberal and democratic traditions of which any nation can be proud. I sometimes think it is a good rule of thumb to ask of a country: are people trying to get into it or out of it? It's not a bad guide to what sort of country it is.
