the US seems to want vassals
since the Cold War the US logic is 'self-interest means domination'
"American prosperity depends upon a world order imposed by the United States."
the Bush doctrine:
["America will act against emerging threats before they are fully formed."]
since last September the 'National Security Strategy of the USA
is truely frightening to much of the world...
I recall the words of a 1995 song by Jonatha Brooke:
'It's the American way, the new world order
We hold these truths to be self-evident
In the American day, you must give and I shall take,
And I will tell you what is moral and what's just
Because I want, because I will, because I can, so will I kill.'
as long as we act like bullies
getting our way with force, threats and bribes
refusing to honor international agreements
and claiming the right to set all the rules
other sovereign nations of the earth do well to be wary
