One of our neighbors to the North spared no adjectives in his effort to explain to his American readers how annoying it is to share the planet with the United States:

"The animosity toward you is largely deserved. Millions of people are tired of U.S. aggression masquerading as charity, your pose of piety, your bombast, your ignorance, your political and military stupidity, and your eternal bloody boasting about that bomb of yours. Last year I visited every country in Latin America where, ironically, I argued the case for you, for I was not then as doubtful about you as I am now. Everywhere I found hostility, ranging from mild to ferocious, toward the U.S.... Your performance in Latin America has been heavily, even predominantly, immoral...When Latin nations have stood in the way of U.S. economic ambition, you have sent your hated Marine Corps to break them. These are some of your national disgraces: Panama, 1903; Nicaragua, 1909; Mexico, 1914; Santo Domingo, 1916 [and 1965]... These and other events have given the Western nations a distinct picture of the U.S. ethical position, which is: when someone else's national interest is involved, military action is immoral; when American national interest is involved, it is moral. Consider Dulles' infamous brink-of-war speech. Consider the blockade of Cuba. (You called it a "quarantine", but it was a blockade, and a blockade is by international law an act of war.)

Hollywood wordsmith Dalton Trumbo held a similar view in 1946 - you can read his thoughts here...
