I'm American and I could see why other countries would think we overstep our authority. The problem is that civilians let the government do whatever its wants across the globe. And the global actions a country take are held against them critically. The whole country and it's people are blamed even when a few "decision makers" caused the problem. We really should start understanding that our leader's actions can effect us directly. If our country runs around like it runs the world then we all will be judged for it as if it were our own actions. We should make our country act how we would act for once.
