Can you be for real? If they "distrust" us as such, then what the hell are our tax dollars doing over there helping them? Trying to buy goodwill?

NO. Americans (both paid and volunteer) are there as assistance. The other nations fly their flags, everybody KNOWS the USoA is there, NOT flying our flag, IMO, is once again disrespecting those Americans who are there, saying, don't tell anyone we are here...
