How the British Misunderstanding of America Is Growing

I've just come back from a few days in London where I had the chance to grill a few Americans - officials and non officials - on what they find tricky about explaining their country to my country.

Oh, I think Britons grasp pretty well that, in America, the inmates are in charge of the asylum. That isn't a misunderstanding on Britain's part, just a mistake on America's.

Probably not as much as the American understanding of America is growing.

Noted. They complain about the Americans but if a world war would break out they would expect the United States to save their ass.

There's widespread misunderstanding of most nations, because of the blinkered news/media reporting. . .

We fought two wars with Britain to establish the fact that we aren't like them and don't want to be like them. This ties them with Germany for the title of Country We Have Fought the Most Wars With. Yet the British can't seem to grasp this and instead just keep on railing about how the US isn't like Britain. Get over it.
