SYSTEM OF A DOWN frontman Serj Tankian says that he is concerned about how the United States portrays itself outside of its borders."You know how they [the politicians] represent us domestically because we live here, but we don't know how they represent us internationally," he said. "We've let them do their thing. We've given them a cart-blanche to do whatever they want to do for these corporations — who aren't even American anymore — and now it's time to take that back. It's time to say, 'Hey, it's time you represent us outside of this country as well as inside.'"
