In the 1940's the USA established itself as a militarianistic global peace maker. A true hero of the era. But as they say,
"Heroes die, or live long enough to become the bad guy."
So here in the 21st century the US seems to come a across as a major aggressor on this teeny planet, and your national laws seem to be absolute on a
global level. Internationally the government doesn't give a rats pooper about public opinion and act as if its their world to lose.
I, as a meager Australian citizen, am bombarded daily with the happening of the US. Our own media fuelled by the neocon Murdoch family, I struggle to
see any constructive input into international society by the US anymore.
Sorry fella's, this is one prophecy that has been fulfilled.

What can you do? Our government has a firm belief in peace through superior firepower. It's why we invented the Atomic Bomb. The Cruise Missile. The
Attack Drone. The Stealth Bomber.
Our system is a product of the Cold War. And we, the people, have no say in it. But I don't see anybody else willing to take charge. The UN sure as
hell isn't doing it.
To quote Jack Nicholson in "A Few Good Men" :
"Son, we live a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Lt. Weinburg? I have a
greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom." ...
"And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk
about at parties, you want me on that wall, you need me on that wall. We use words like honor, code, loyalty. We use these words as the backbone of a
life spent defending something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and
sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said thank
you, and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon and stand a post. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you are
entitled to. "
