This is intended in a joking spirit, but I can tell your sense of humor is different, so I will point out that fact. I have no agenda against skaters of any nation. I have never been motivated by jingoism. I love skating, and I enjoy discussing its trends. I am not against USA, Russia, China, Canada, Japan or any country. By your logic I am secretly against everyone except Japan, for it is the only country whose ladies I consistently cheer for. Of course I have my biases--and I have legitimate opinions too, but I respect all the skaters and nations, including Russia, USA, France, Korea, etc.
