I know Iknow.
This is not anti american it's more a sort of a wake up call.
The overiding impression I get of our american cousins is that they feel unbeatable. That as long as the USA backs it, it's freedom and good for the world.

I know I'm in for a rough ride on this thread but hey guys, seriously you think China can't give you a run for your money?
O.K. less nukes but still enough to wipe the USA off the map.

We brits would screwed as well; but at least we can see it.

Just a few figures to get us started.

Don't kill the messenger


Just a start

I think it would be more suitable if you renamed your thread title: Media portrayal of Americans unshakable faith in thier dominance.

Don't let the complex viewing device tell you what We Americans are really like.

Our leaders is what you're after. Not the people.

Us Brits will be fine!

Despite our crap government slashing the military government, they would put the money STRAIGHT back into the MoD's budget if there were signs of a major conflict. If they were smart, they'd ear mark alot of money to engineers, British engineers used to be one of the best in the world, in fact they are still very good. Give them loads of money, they'll engineer something to take out China's nuclear prowess, then rapidly build up our Navy, then job done.

I actually come across this regularly (on Facebook :@@
of Americans (ex Intelligence) believing they are saving the planet from the evil-doers. Plenty of posts last few days on Assad and promoting going in there to bring democracy through violence.

It seems very black & white to these folks. It's either the good ol American democratic way or suffer.

Sorry it's just the impression I get.
Too much sons of guns and time on ATS maybe I love Britain with all it's faults and would defend it to the death. We once thought we could rule the world but then so did Ghenkis Khan, and the roman empire etc etc etc .

unfortunately it generally requires violence to remove the ruling class and give the people a voice. However it should the people of that country that make that choice, idealistic I know but true none the less.

No. Not ALL of you 'brits'' can see that 'you're screwed' (if that's even true), and not ALL of Americans believe we dominate the world (if that's even true). Actually, some Americans believe we don't dominate enough, and some believe we don't dominate anything, that we are just a middleman for an even greater power.

It always irks me everytime the American populace gets blamed for something the government does, and irks me even more when the very same person compares HIS/HERSELF to the ENTIRE AMERICAN POPULACE as if they are golden egg.

Consider this your wake up call.

As I said it's just general impression that I get nothing personal against any individuals.
Aplogies if I offended.
