At the very end it has , "a salute to all nations but esspecially america.
Not a single military one except about mercenaries in europe thats it the rest was on USA.
Actually the propaganda about the war by bush and the propaganda against the war by kerry and what i saw it was the oposite.
Moreover China cannot expand its sphere of influence anymore w/o eating into somebody elses region.
Also you really think that the US could take on an alliance including India Russia and China??...Thats ...hmmm well thats quite interesting...lets play a wargame...your move first...

This is called propaganda, huh?
What channel were you watching? The History channel shows constant WW2, and even some WW1 battles. German and Russians are on their more than Americans. Most of the specials on America's military are simply on D-day, and then cover pretty much all of the Allies.
You saw wrong, then.
I challenge anyone to go find a single positive story about Iraq on the major news sites, even Fox News, at this very moment.
Plenty of studies have been done on the media. They've all come back with the same findings. The American media is liberal.
They never, repeat NEVER paint while underway. The waves can splash up over the deck and the salt spray in the air is the reason that never happens.
Blown overboard CNN reportMichael Harris of Dillsburg, Pa., was standing in a gully directly behind an EA6B Prowler when the pilot fired up the engine.
The force sent the sailor overboard as two other sailors nearby tried to grab him, said Navy Lt. Wendy Snyder. Harris, who was working on the flight deck for the first time, plunged 65 feet into the water.
The admiral stiffly explained that his ship had been "near Bali" when ordered to turn back, with one of the major requirements being to "have an Australian contractor paint the flight deck". In fact CVN72 was actually 552 nautical miles WEST of Bali and heading direct for the Persian Gulf at the time, but hey, that's sort of "near Bali" isn't it?
Clearly then, sometime between the USS Abraham Lincoln's departure from Fremantle on December 28, and her return on January 6, painting the flight deck had suddenly become an extremely high tech task that could only be completed by Australians in Australia. This should come as great news to the 5,000+ American crew members of CVN72, who normally paint their own flight deck all the time.
Unfortunately, painting the deck is considered so secret and vital to the "war effort" at this time, that all 5,000+ American crew members are being confined to CVN72, presumably in order to personally supervise half a dozen Australian painters with spray guns!
Global Security siteBy early-to-mid December 2002 the Lincoln had been relieved by the USS Constellation and began transiting back to the United States. On December 18 she was in the Indian Ocean headed for Australia. She arrived in Freemantle on December 22 for a port call where she remained until December 26.
In late December reports from the Navy surfaced indicating that a carrier, either the Lincoln or the Kitty Hawk would be redeployed to the Persian Gulf in light of escalating tensions between Iraq and the US. At that time it was unclear if the Lincoln would remain deployed or if they had been just alerted of the possibility. On December 30 the Lincoln Battle Group was located south of Australia. On December 31, new reports indicated that the Lincoln had indeed been ordered to remain at sea and to redeploy for the Gulf. On January 2, 2003, according to Navy documents, the Lincoln was reported to be Northwest of Australia. On January 3, 2003 the West Australian Newspaper reported that the Lincoln would be returning to Fremantle for an extended stay for repairs and maintenance before it would redeploy for the Persian Gulf.

India is almost a non-factor. While a rising nation, they don't really compare to China by any means.
