"We appreciate you sticking up for the U.S. We think you're right," one woman told Thompson. At the soapbox Thompson had voiced his impatience with the U.S. feeling that it has to apologize for every move in the world it makes. "This nation has shed more blood bringing peace to others," Thompson said. "I'm tired of apologizing for being the United State of America."I am so tired of people acting like what the rest of the world thinks of the U.S. is the most important issue of the day.
