World War Three?
Feb 12, 2002, 14:51
"Non-Americans (ie, 95 per cent of the world) do not understand that Americans are actually proud of that picture of the US soldier brandishing the belts and shackles and handcuffs and chains used on prisoners... Americans can be a bloodthirsty lot, ...they revel in a vicarious, John
Waynesque approach of being "tough" towards their perceived foes. What other national anthem exults in "the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air" as the US one does in its fifth line? Americans weep freely when the likes of Ray Charles sing 'God Bless America'. "The US is now a country of such unchallengeable power that it can and does create its own moral and humanitarian stances; it does not need to listen to outsiders."
WASHINGTON - In an extensive multi-part story about the Bush Administration in the aftermath of 11 September, this small paragraph buried deep in a multi-page story in The Washington Post: "The president said he didn't want other countries dictating terms or conditions for the war on terrorism. 'At some point,' the president said, 'we may be the only ones left. That's okay with me. We are America.' "

"America is on the war path, the American cavalry is riding high trumpets blaring, "Manifest Destiny" didn't end and now extends globally, and as today's FINANCIAL TIMES headlines: America is "Spreading Alarm Among Friends", not to mention to the impact it is having on enemies and other great powers, especially
China at this point in history.
Indeed, there are many astute observers who believe the tremendous Pentagon and CIA build-up now underway is really a new kind of cold war designed to put down all opposition to American hegemony and prepare for a possible future conflict with the Chinese."
