Is America rich because it siphons the wealth of other nations?

Ma'am.... it's not just two people.

It's not that many people, just fringe groups who share those views. 

You clearly live in an Anti-American echo chamber and confuse the beliefs of that echo chamber with the views of a large portion of the world's population. Stop projecting the views of a fringe minority on the views of most people in the world.

Ma'am..... you are just in denial.

 

What if there were a group of people out there who hates Americans so much, they decided to get into a bunch of planes and ram it up on a bunch of buildings killing thousands?

 

They may not have destroyed the US but they showed how much they hated it.

9/11 isn't evidence the world wants to destroy America, just some terrorists. Proof that some people hate America enough to try to destroy it, is not proof that most people hate America enough to try to destroy it, or even that a large percentage of people hate America enough to try and destroy it.

You're the one in denial.

PS - I am a dude, why do you keep calling me ma'am? Misgendering!

I'm not talking that, I'm talking about the future.....

 

And no sir, there are people like that who do exist.

 

Denial won't save them and won't save you.

I never said they didn't exist, I said they were fringe minorities. The most likely way America could be "destroyed" is by a nuclear launch on false warning by the Russians, accidental rather than intentional because of hatred for America. Even then America won't be destroyed, but it could easily lose it's hegemony in that scenario, and the world wouldn't welcome it.

Are you seriously going to defend them and fight for them until the bitter end?

The alternatives are far worse than America, just because they aren't perfect doesn't mean they need to be destroyed. 

Throwing the baby out with the bath water?
Cutting off my nose to spite my face? 
Bad ideas.

The world is far better off with America, than without it. I'm certainly not going to side with the terrorists against it, nor I am going to side with Russia or China against it.

Many, many millions more have gotten on planes and ships and buses to show how much they don't hate it.

The U.S. has the most legal and illegal immigrants than any other nation in the world....for over 100 years.

America Envy is a helluva drug.

Why does everyone believe that these things are caused by envy?

 

Can it not be caused by something that has been done?

Yeah, it can be also be an overreaction to military adventurism as well. But it's not based on reasoned analysis, that I can tell you.

No rational analysis would paint America as the world's evilest nation, that's for sure.

America might not be perfect, but that doesn't mean the alternatives are better, being able to point out that America has flaws, is not grounds to want it destroyed.

Well then there you go, most people will be happy after all!

 

My question now, is why, WHY hasn't those countries you listed united and destroyed the United States of America and then divided its lands and as for the population, use them as forced labor?

Your Americans should know, most people in the world dislike US not because you are rich but meddlesome.

Just like raccoons roaming in our yards. Lots of people dislike them because they mess up our trash cans. But destroy them? No need. Just buying some raccoon proof  trash cans the problem will be fixed.

The raccoons, will still roam in our yards and probably call it freedom of navigation operations. But both we and they know that they will no longer be able to mess up our yards...:lol::lol:

It seems like BC2004's ancestors migrated to US more than 100 years ago.....

America helped and continues to try to help develop other Nations and the Voice of the People.  In the process of helping they also do like to gain something out of it as well.  It''s only fair.  The problem is we have Envious people who feel like they deserve it all without recognising the wealth of help and knowledge and assistance they have received from the USA.  These same people then use every excuse they can think of out of the book.  Things like, they are taking away our resources, our culture, they are siding against us with our enemies, etc, etc, etc.  I can tell you that you will never satisfy people like this because they are selfish control freaks and they have no interest in getting along with anyone unless they are in control.  They don't recognise friendship or recognise contributions that were made to help them.  Any friendship was lost in the generations before.  That is not to say there are not any people like that.  But the issue is there seems to always be an emphasis (especially by the Media) on the ones that are not grateful for what they have and how they got there.

Okay, so one of the many reasons why so many countries claim to hate America is because..... well.... the title.

 

If so, is this not a good reason to destroy America or to make America poor so that poor nations can be rich?

The USA is less than 250 years old. There were massive cities all over the world 2,000 years before Columbus learned to swim. All of the countries they're in had a massive head start on the USA. Most of them still suck. Whose fault is that?

Good question WestCanMan.  Unfortunately I think that most of these countries if not all, really only have themselves to blame.
