    America is a great country, and overall with it being the strongest western nation and the country with the biggest economy and most advanced military I'd say it's the "greatest" country in the world.

    That does not mean that America is the best at everything, when I was in Canada there were things I thought they did better, and in various other nations (particularly Korea and Japan) primary education is better. America is great, overall I think it's the greatest if being "great" equates with wealth and military might, but it's not the best at all things or necessarily "superior" to others.

    You should think about that before you jump to a rather uninformed conclusion.

    Barack Obama has destroyed this country. We are the laughing stock of the world in spite of Obama's boast that he has "improved" our standing in the world. The man lies. His handling of LIbya (Benghazi), Yemen, Syria, Israel, Iran, Russia and Cuba have all been colossal disasters. Obamacare does almost NOTHING promised. The only parts that do what promised are pre-existing conditions and SOME of the uninsureds that were promised but nowhere NEAR what he promised - about 6-8 million as compared to the 30-47 million promised and then you have to subtract those who LOST their plans which MAYBE nets 5 million at a ridiculous cost of $2.3 trillion. He KNOWINGLY lied that you can keep your plan and your doctor and that your premiums would go down by $2500 a year. He got it rammed through by parliamentary trickery. He promised to be transparent about it but it was completely done behind closed doors and apparently even the drafters didn't read it. He had promised that he would not sign any bill until it had been posted for 5 days for everybody to read. Labor Participation Rate is worst in decades. Median household income is down 10% since he took over. The Fed is propping up the economy and creating a grossly over-inflated stock market that - when it crashes - and it surely will - will be worse than the dot come crash and the Real Estate bubble burst combined. I could go on and on and on but you get the picture. The man is an incompetent boob!

    Believe me, I could dig up a lot more than two incidents if I could be bothered - but suffice to say they hanged people at Nuremberg for similar incidents of 'war time rage'. You should think about that before you attempt to justify war crimes.

    You are correct - to a point. I will always challenge any person of any nation who expounds upon the nonsensical concept that his nation is preeminent in all things. It is ignorant and ill-mannered.
