I keep hearing this, probably because of the recent Normandy D-Day anniversary. But why is it that I don't feel the same attitude from other countries that assisted? I don't hear it from the British and I haven't really heard anyone from the ex-USSR claim that others owe them. After all, they've lost so many lives (more than any other country) fighting the enemies during the 2nd World War. But it's a theme that keeps coming back. Whenever someone not from the US disagrees with the US, he's told "have you forgotten what the US has done for you?" It was worse during the Iraq war debate especially when France didn't agree with the invasion. We've been told so many times that we are ungrateful, after all, US helped France in the world war. We owe it to them to be supportive. I don't understand this "owe" concept. In the same way, I also don't agree when some of my countrymen would rebut with the same attitude towards Americans, just because France has helped the US during the American Revolution. I think there's a difference between being thankful or appreciative of what another country has done and feeling like you owe that country something and be their puppet. If all countries helped by the US (for whatever reason) have to feel indebted, how and when will this debt get paid?
