This has happened a while back, maybe twenty years ago. You misunderstand my statement. Just becau ...

Again, you give way to much credit to the US.  No one in the US views this country as powerful as you do.  Must be all the conflicts we keep losing....

America is the still the most powerful in the world, with the ability and willingness to do some thing.

Trump America would be disaster
Hillary / Obama America will be positive force for the world.

as for that socialist, isolationist Sanders, that is a dark horse no one knows, not even Sanders know.

In that case why haven't the USA got rid of their nukes ?

Because their nukes are a deterrent to others and they are not afraid to use them as they have done so before.  They themselves are not deterred by others' nukes because they are confident of taking them out before any damage is done.

most countries are more powerful than what most of their citizens believe. The politicians in many countries have a stake in keeping the people a bit scared, while still 'reassuring them' like kindly paternal figures about how they are doing everything to protect them. No where is it more true than in the USA.
we might disagree on our perceptions...

LOL - kindly paternal figures?

You don't know americans very well.

No one thinks of our leads in this way.  In fact, most americans see them as lying scumbags who can't do anything right.

i too see most politicians in the USA in the same light as you state that most do.
I am talking about this from the politicians point of view, how they like to portray themselves. They did succeed for a long time, many still do. It is only when people see through their lies and deception that they feel as you and I do.
You are still in the minority. Most in the USA will vote for someone who makes them feel 'safer' and buy the propaganda. They are good people at heart, but helpless and ignorant about a lot of facts.
