Your arrogance will be your destruction!

Reader comment on item: America the Unpopular

Submitted by Colonel Tavington (United Kingdom), Nov 25, 2003 at 12:03

It has been clear for a long time that America considers itself better than every other nation on earth. The recent war in Iraq showed that the US was willing to ignore global opinion and was willing to fight alone in a 'looks like it's up to America to save the world' kind of attitude. I think that if it wasn't for the help of allies such as the UK and others the American deathtoll would have been a lot higher.

On the other hand if America wasn't even involved i think that the number of friendly fire incidents would have been zero. American forces somehow managed to think that a Royal Air Force Tornado was an Iraqi plane and shot it down. Just how many iraqi fighter aircraft are there hmmmm how about none. What really annoys me is the American attitude of 'we lead, you follow' to its allies, especially the UK. There will come a day when a nation with real weapons of mass destruction attacks America. When this happens America will expect all its allies to help in a counter attack only to find that it is the allies which are firing them. Tensions are already rising, the European, Russian and Chineese forces have almost finished the galileo project. This will stop Americas domination of GPS weapons and will even be able to block out the american GPS signal. I think that world war three will be America versus the rest ofthe world and i don't like Americas chances, sorry
