    America has been the most well behaved super power in the history of this planet!

    I get so tired of hearing about how horrible we are.

    If we were so horrible we would own over half the planet by now.

    Right On, Diana!

    Name another super power that helped defeated enemies rebuild their countries - and then left, enabling them to have their own sovereign governments.

    Never before in history has a country gained so much power, so quickly, and used it so wisely !

    Do we make mistakes, sure do ?

    Are we selfish and self-serving, sure are ?

    But we are still the greatest, most compassionate, and generous nation on this planet !

    Right on! We give help to our enemies, (The Iranians after the earthquake couldn't thank the US volunteers enough). We support our friends, (Israel), while trying to protect their enemies and help them recognize a chance for their children, (Palestinians).

    We have no desire for empire, but yes, we do have our interests and we will protect them, (oil).

    You got some KEY WORDS there, Diana, but I'm afraid your meaning is lost amongst many that post here. Now I'm not in any way disagreeing that we, the United States of America, has been the most well behaved superpower in the history of this planet. But that was then. Now, as the ONLY superpower, I think our principles are somewhat diminished by our unilateralism and outright arrogance. But what the heck do I know?

    I mean no condescension, jimnyc, how do you discern anything like that from my most openly opinionated post?

    Because that's about the 20th time I've seen you write something almost exactly like this, that peoples words are mostly lost amongst those who participate on this board. Just because you have a differing opinion that doesn't mean anything is "lost" on those with an opposing view. I think some of the brightest guys on this board are those that I disagree with (Isaac, Bry, DK, Bully, Spillmind).
