Yeah, when traveling internationally, your worldview of US exceptionalism gets

Not sure I agree with this …. the US is one very large and powerful country yes
… but (and I’m not trying to stir controversy here despite it sounding like it)
it’s one country out of many … and there are many other large and powerful
countries out there. I’m not saying that the US isn’t a major player and that
some countries hurt more than others when things happen in the US but the
“world” doesn’t centre around the US as much as Americans seem to think it does

If you want to feel sorry for anybody, feel sorry for the majority of the
planet who has become accustomed to riding the coat tails of the US in one
major way or another. If and when we fall, it will be a disaster globally.
