Also to the fellow from England, I would like to point out that England has been riding on the coattails of the U.S for a while (since the end of WW2 when the pound collapsed(sp)). So it is only fitting in symbioses that both creatures, in this example states take on similar characteristics becouse if it did not it would lose one of its greatest partners

What freedoms currently exist in countries residing in what had been known as the European and Pacific theatres of war,during World War II, are primarily the result of AMERICAN participation in their respective liberations in 1945.
That these nations have a free press (printed in a language not of their conquerors) in which to offer such negative opinions, is largely a by product of the AMERICAN efforts on their behalf.
The ingratitude of these peoples is towering, almost French in it's magnitude.
Isolationism, never my first choice, would at this point seem a wonderful vacation from world involvement. Let the world nations know that the 'arsenal of democracy' will be sitting the next one out............ as the jackboots stride down some foreign strasse.
