Its time to accept who we are. The worlds only superpower.
We accepted that, Jcs, when you were still running around on all fours, I hate to tell you. What Bush is doing goes WAY beyond that, to thinking he can dictate what the rest of the world should think and believe, and if it doesn't like it, that they can stick it up their asses-even if it means that their nation could suffer. And I'm not just talking about enemies-but about allies.
Bush is swinging a big Pax-Americana stick these days, and it goes beyond the US being the only power. We CAN
be the world's only superpower, and still treat the rest of the world with a hell of a lot more respect than we've done the last 18 months, Jcs.
We need someone who doesn't think the world is his to do with what he will, and that's what Bush and his advisors have come to think.
It's time to send them packing.
