YurokJames, you are very wise. What you say is right on.
Also, here is something I just found that Gore Vidal said recently:
"GORE VIDAL: Well, there are many odious traits that Americans have that the rest of the world doesnít like. Constant boasting with not much to boast about, that gets on other peopleís nerves. The idea that, somehow or other, the whole world belongs to us and everybody should do what we tell them to do, they donít really like that. Weird, but they donít. There has never been a people less suited for world dominion than the Americans of the twentieth century and twenty-first century.
Henry James was very good on that subject. "
