Tone overseas

BBC NEWS | Have Your Say | Anti-Americanism: Your questions answered

“Sometimes it comes down to a matter of tone, nothing more. It’s about how America talks with the outside world.”

So far, so good in my reading of this article, a surprisingly balanced one, for the BBC. Not that I agree with it all, as a long-term expatriate (that’s not ex-patriot, got it?).

And granted the statement above, Americans sometimes come across arrogantly, ethnocentric, thinking themselves the last, best hope for mankind. Especially deadly for religious workers, this attitude.

What do you think?
