I'm just curious. I've read many posts here. I truly value an outside view of my country and the world with the closest country I can relate to. I have family roots that trace to Wales and that may be part of it. I enjoy reading views of the US for good or for bad and I try not to take negative comments personally. After all, I am the foreigner here. Although I do often see a lot of 1 sentence replies that offer neither insight or perspective but are simply to flame or troll. In addition to that, I have served 14 years in the US military so tend to be at home with military groups and understand the thinking. I'm curious why you all think that many Americans come here to read and post on your forums.
