    Is America arrogant?

    Several decades ago one great man (Mr. M.L. King) spoke about America's arrogance. What do you think, is America arrogant today or cured itself out of this disorder?

    There are no words in the English language that can be assembled together into a sentence as to describe just how arrogant the United States is.
    Imperialism. Materialism. None more satisfied by waving it's dong in the face of the world, blissfully unaware of just how bad the world thinks it's dong smells.

    Yes, we are one mean country. G.D. America for coming to the aide of Nations all over the world. G.D. America for fighting along side of our allies in WW2 to defeat an evil empire. G.D. America for coming to the aide of destitute countries in their times of disaster and epidemics. Yes, we are one mean country. Riiight.

    In my experience, you will find the most arrogant countries in Europe.

    Still, US foreign policy has been quite arrogant.

    Somewhat ironically, there's a wee bit of arrogance in that post.

    If what you mean is, are the good citizens of the USA arrogant, the answer is hell yes.

    No, I meant America the state, i.e. the USA. There is quite a difference between the state and the citizens, imho.

    Half decade ago they had a reason to be arrogant. That time has passed.

    You do realize their are many other countries in South, Central, and North America don't you?

    Saying Americans could refer to Canadians and, while they may be arrogant, they certainly have no reason to be.

    You must have add to that arrogance.
