Unhappy IMG in confusion,please help

I am a 5th year medical student from Bangladesh. I planned to appear in step1 around February 2012, so I started my preparation with great enthusiasm. This forum helping me a lot, it’s a wonderful helping source, but some threads in this forum made me dishearten suddenly as many of them it has been said that its not worth to try for residency for US as day by day they are becoming so strict for IMGs. Now I am so confused and wrapped around a bunch of questions:

• If I pass USMLE step 1 & step 2 ck in my 1st attempt with average
score (suppose with two digit score 93/94) and step 2 CS after 2/3
attempts (as I am in fear that I cant pass it in 1st attempt) is it
possible for me to get in any residency program ?
• As an IMG, non green card holder is it a day dream for me?
• I don’t have much ability to do externship in USA, I can afford at
best 2-3 months observership, nothing more than this…..
• Regarding all these, please advise whether I will continue my
preparation or its wise to give up and try something else
• after completing residency in USA, what advantage I will in other countries?
• How many IMGs are getting matched in residency programs now a days
( I would be grateful if you give me the number of IMGs, not percentages)
Thank you……
