Well, the only problem is that the rest of the world seems to buy into the BS that's marketed by the U.S. to them. It's business strategy, really - get the U.S. public to believe that the U.S. government is so militarily strong (with borrowed money, of course), so that they have us focus on curbing this supposed, concocted "strength" & "power" instead of punishing the *idiots* (who are weak - hence the need to advertise) who are putting the U.S. into more debt & internal crises that it can handle. Most of it is a big fat mental game that allows the screamingly rich to keep their power over the rest of us.
