As we have been told repeatedly on how bad America is to and for the world.Let's just pull out.We can take the worlds largest economy and move back to isolationism. Just like before ww2 after all we did pull out of a world depression through isolationism in the mid to late 30's.We can do it again.
Think of all the money we can save,no large Navy to keep the ocean's safe.No more economic handouts.We can pull all funds and equipment out of N.A.T.O.Close all the air bases in foreign lands.Most of all bring all our troops home!
Afterall we have been told that we use our economic might to crush other nations.So maybe they are right.So lets take our money and run.Cancel all our foreign debt,default on all treasury bonds outside the U.S.
Well it's a thought,but the U.S.A would never do that.
Why?? Because the World Would Burn !!!We have have been given this responsbility we did not ask for it ,but we will not run from it.
So the U.S.A will just have to get use to being treated like the parent of a teenager.Being told that they are evil and wrong in every action they take.But everytime something goes wrong are the one who has to bail them out.

After WW2 durning the cold war with the U.S.S.R when Europe was Quaking in their boots.Who was handed the biggest role in Euorpe's defense?
How little you know. Proof of anyone 'quaking' please.
I am about to post very good proof that British Intelligence in accord with pro-British allies persuaded Americans to go into WW 2 and then when that was done how they created the Cold War threat...
After WW2 there was no threat ... so they had to make one....

The UK had it all before WW2, step by step they had to give it all up afterwards to the US. I think that some US corporations did in fact intentionally helped the rise of Hitler, I do not fully see how they could have planed for the decline of the British Empire, my bet is that they aliened with the ideology and the fear of the Bolsheviks in Russia spreading, Germany was in free-fall it would have probably gone Communist (see German federal election, May 1924, take in consideration the actions against the Communist by the first two parties).
