Germany is a beautiful country full of people who respect each other and are still repenting for the holocaust 60 years after it ended. Germans would never even dream of saying that they are proud of being German, because their sense of pride and identity was trashed by some freak from Austria a long time ago. The holocaust wasn't the fault of the general population, and Germans have only recently started assuming a kind of national identity again, listening to bands singing in German, enjoying German movies and taking pride in German food, culture, landscapes, tolerance and openness. Germany deserves respect- it has had to suffer long enough.
I'm German-American living in Munich, so I know what I'm talking about, in case you were wondering. Germany is fantastic.
