Lol, thank you. It's funny how people like to call the U.S. the "World Police", almost as if that's a bad thing. I wish there was some way for those
same people, that think that, to be able to see how much different history would be right now if the U.S. did not get involved in certain conflicts.
Or how dangerous the world would be without a nuclear armed America.
Just like a tribe has a chief, a country has some type of leader, a parent has a child, there has to be some type of moderating. If survival of the
fittest applied to countries, which in a sense it most certainly does, the U.S. would be the clear candidate for this task. The funny thing is, the
U.S. never wanted this role. Just wound up with after WWII. Talk is cheap, you simply can't expect countries to do what you say. However, if you
have the means and power to back those talks up, then it will be far more effective. Our invention of nuclear weapons and powerful well placed
military is the arm of our police moderation. Without that, the world would be a dangerous place.
