What is your country's view of the United States?

South Korea will be in the top five pro-American countries with U.S. troops stationed in the world (although 20 years ago, people tended to think of the U.S. as an "enemy of the people" rather than North Korea)

1.As long as they don't compete with women and don't push their agenda to children. 2. Stop falling into cargo cult.

We’re not discussing technology here. So what cargo cult? We’re not people from less-fortunate regions here. What are you talking about?

Cargo cult in this case refers to people who think it's ok to accept any Western things or elements of culture, including weird ones without adapting it to local conditions.

Nope. Dictionary definition says “(in the Melanesian Islands) a system of belief based around the expected arrival of ancestral spirits in ships bringing cargoes of food and other goods.“. And of course I used google. Does it have any other meaning in the eastern bloc? Maybe it does but here in the English speaking world, your definition doesn’t make sense because a cargo is basically a large parcel of supplies so cargo cult means ^ that. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cargo_cult

A Russian huh? Very Kazakh. English doesn't differentiate between Russian ethnic and citizenship so yes, you can be technically right :-))
