If america is treating its people like cattle then, by golly, I want to be a cow.

At least it's the best form of treatment on the planet. Name another country with our GDP?

That GDP direclty translates to quality of life and regional stability.

I know that doesn't make everything we do right, but SOMEBODY has to do it.

You do realize that someone has to take the lead, right? That's what the US is doing.

It's a natural consequence of our GDP and history. We're the goto guys.

And I'm grateful that the leading country is one that upholds freedom and human rights.

Russia and China have a human rights record that prohibits them from ever leading.

Well, ok, they could lead if the world sunk that low and accepted them.

We might sometimes be overly christian or arrogant, but we're the best out there. What other nation has our power and discipline and values and endurance and respect? Nobody.

no one want's to be the first to touch off world war 3.

meanwhile a lot of governments around the world are putting up with direct attacks on their soil, without so much as a complaint.

Russia says "you sank my battle ship" US say,s "did not " Russia "did so" China says "no we did, but blame US any way" would it really matter to any one that Russia sank their own battle ship, out of neglect, but to save face blamed the US, China steps in for the fun of it, not that any one sees this or even notices it, Says they did to see if any one is paying notice, no one is. North Korea still in morning from il's passing stays out, Pakistan , now with 30,000 saying boo to US gets a taste of Sub SEC D, Git MO gets 15,000 guests.
Iran gets in the mix, says no to US ships in the straight, Iran lost big gets black eye. comes back with big stick.
