'Americans can do anything': Foreign leaders praise the U.S.


Recommended Posts

2573833Washington Examiner:

The U.S. has its share of problems, but many of the foreign leaders who have addressed Congress over the last few years have offered a reminder that many around the world still look up to America.


Last April, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe paid his respects to those Americans who fought against Japan in World War II.


"History is harsh. What is done cannot be undone," said Abe. "I offer with profound respect my eternal condolences to the souls of all American people that were lost during World War Two."


He also recited Carole King's "You've Got a Friend" to Congress:


A month earlier, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani praised and thanked the hundreds of thousands of Americans who fought in his country.


"More than 1 million brave Americans have served in Afghanistan. They have come to defend and to know our people," he said. "And in return, the people of Afghanistan recognize the bravery of your soldiers and the tremendous sacrifices that Americans have made to keep Afghanistan free."Scissors-32x32.png
