I'm not going to pretend the US is a perfect angel and doesn't have blood on its hands. And it may even be a sore loser as its power and influence decline (although how much has it really declined? Their recession in the 1930's was many times worse and yet it left them as the world's undisputed superpower a decade later). Decline or not, they just backed a major regime change in Libya and they might not even be finished, so don't count America out just yet, although greater humility on their part would be a wise change of course. What scares me is more about how Russia appears to be sore losers after losing a mere tiny fraction of their vast stolen empire, and that they seem to be looking for ways of hitting back at any cost (i.e. selling extremely dangerous weapons and technology to anyone who hates America). Europe really needs to get its s**t together and stop relying on Russian gas, because the Russians are the type to cut their own noses off just to spite the face/America.
