Taking out a president, heads of state, generals, corporate management, these things are force. Unfortunately, in countries like vietnam, palestine, similar, the people dont have force, and their only option is terror. Sadly, the united states has both force and terror, and we seem to use both equally.
It's impossible for words to describe what is necessary to those who do not know what horror means. Horror. Horror has a face... and you must make a friend of horror. Horror and moral terror are your friends. If they are not then they are enemies to be feared. They are truly enemies. I remember when I was with Special Forces. Seems a thousand centuries ago. We went into a camp to inoculate the children. We left the camp after we had inoculated the children for Polio, and this old man came running after us and he was crying. He couldn't see. We went back there and they had come and hacked off every inoculated arm. There they were in a pile. A pile of little arms. And I remember... I... I... I cried. I wept like some grandmother. I wanted to tear my teeth out. I didn't know what I wanted to do. And I want to remember it. I never want to forget it. I never want to forget. And then I realized... like I was shot... like I was shot with a diamond... a diamond bullet right through my forehead. And I thought: My God... the genius of that. The genius. The will to do that. Perfect, genuine, complete, crystalline, pure. And then I realized they were stronger than we. Because they could stand that these were not monsters. These were men... trained cadres. These men who fought with their hearts, who had families, who had children, who were filled with love... but they had the strength... the strength... to do that. If I had ten divisions of those men our troubles here would be over very quickly. You have to have men who are moral... and at the same time who are able to utilize their primordial instincts to kill without feeling... without passion... without judgment... without judgment. Because it's judgment that defeats us. -Kurtz

West coast, i think some of your info is dated. You must remember that america is MASSIVE compared to european countries as a whole, and per land area we are actually not the lead anymore as far as people immigrating here.
In fact, lots of people who were immigrating to the US before are actually immigrating back home now due to the drop in the dollar, which is going to get worse yet, causing even more immigration out of the US in the near future.
As far as leading the world in many areas....well, thats not exactly true either. Russia long ago surpassed us for oil technology, quantum physics has moved to europe, and manufacturing here has been destroyed.
Many other countries practice advanced and different modalities of medicine that we wont even recognize here...and Japan surpasses us in electronic and computer technology.
In fact, i think the only thing we are advanced in here is defense technology, and considering how much we spend on defense, that is not really a plus, its more like a minus.
On the plus side, our wine industry has jumped leaps and bounds in the last 30 years, but thats not gonna really make the whole world do cartwheels or keep us in the game. Even our democracy is not the best, as several other countries have much more representative democracies with much higher turnouts, where the president is actually answerable to the people, and often have had minority presidents for decades now.
