You didn't put a choice in there I could vote for. The USA isn't superior to EVERY country in the world. It's superior to a lot of them though. Recall, for example, that the average life expectancy in Kabul, Afghanistan in 2001 was 40, and most of the people lived lives that I would describe as poverty stricken. Infant mortality was high, women's rights almost non-exiistent, and health care spotty at best.
But a member of the Taliban might consider Afghanistan in 2001 superior to the USA. He would be wrong, of course.
Still, 'superior' is an inherently subjective term.
Proud to be an American
Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.
