If Fatma were wrong about America's obesity problem, I would be more annoyed at her. But she's not. Currently, America is the #2 most obese industrialized nation on Earth. For the first time in eons, Australia inched the US out of the top spot in a 2008 poll. There is another list out there that ranks the US at #9, but that list includes island nations in the South Pacific that are about the size of a golf course.
And I think her bigger point was that she can't understand why there are so many depressed, suicidal and homicidal young people in this country. People from her home are dying, and would risk their lives for the chance to come here. Well, we're already here, so what's got us so down? We take the most basic things for granted because most of us can't even grasp the concept of real hunger, or real political oppression, or being left to die from diseases because there's no infrastructure to get aid where it's needed. If anything, I think she was telling Americans to cheer up!
