It's not uncommon for Americans to be depicted in my media as being ignorant of the large land mass south of South East Asia. This large land mass is the largest island in the world and the smallest continent. It's people have fought many wars alongside the US military and have a trade agreement, yet, this long term relationship is often unknown to the many Americans. Are Americans US-centric and if so, why is this? Do Americans study the cultures and politics of their allies?
