From Time Magazine

"The failure of the Bush Administration is its inability to articulate why other countries profit from America's military power. No other nation, or group of nations, could conceivably replace the U.S. as the world's policeman; but like it or not, that American role will be played on American terms. Europeans should ask themselves whether, right now, the ICC is worth more than continued American engagement in the world. The answer is easy."
those are two seperate things. active role in peacekeeping missions is not what makes america the 'world's policeman'.

their policing image comes from the multi-faceted grip they hold on much of the world.

didn't mean to patronize. sorry. just pointing out your tendancy to present your own argument as gospel. i hope you feel better.

im the candyman. and the candyman is back.
