    Because they were allies against communism when the cold war was Americas biggest threat. We were allies with Stalin too if you remember your history at all.

    Also our military budget dwarfs everyone else yet you're still scared?

    Typical wet your pants scared conservative.
    Untrue, we are the worlds sole superpower. Perspective is lacking, on your part.

    Which nicely dovetails into another point I like to make. So are conservatives! Which is why I say you get the same thing in America regardless of which party we have. Carter wasn't a corporate player, AT ALL. He turned down the thermostat in the WH, and put on a sweater, he put solar panels on the roof of the WH, and advocated an energy policy that would have us by now far advanced in alternative energy. No friend of big oil. He was never going to have a second term. Btw, removing the solar panels from the WH roof was one of the first things Reagan did, the big oil man. Also, jimmy Carter left the WH and put on his bags and started building Habitat for Humanity, ever the humanitarian and advocate for the little guy that he ever has been. Not traipsing around the country (world) giving speeches and amassing 100 million dollars in personal wealth as Clinton has. I don't blame him for catching a different flight.

    How many monies (trillions) of debt does it take till we are no longer "thee" worlds super power? Or is that only defined by our ability to take our armed forces anywhere we want in the world and destroy life and property for any reason that suits our fancy, even lies?

    Kinda nice, too that all the other tourists were Canadians and Europeans, knowwhatImean?
    Third world countries are fun to visit but I notice you didn't stay there.

    We are the worlds superpower scientifically, agriculturally, militarily, and culturally.

    Its called American exceptionalism, and its what you never studied under critical theory.

    The ones that killed our ambassador and several other Americans. How quickly they forget.

    And you have an elitist attitude. Sound agricultural practices kept the world alive for millennia before snot nosed Americans showed up on the seen, and apparently it has escaped you that we have been slipping for sometime in the sciences, MIT graduates are being alarmingly lured away from the sciences and onto Wall Street. And as for culture, that's subjective. America is long past its apex and attitudes like yours will only ensure we continue our decline.
