USA based it's world power status on it's military might.

it protects it's power by basing military bases all over the world.
it's to protect and influences regimes that control energy and minereal sources.
it also has capability to threaten states that harms it forex.

BUT which hegemonic empire wasn't like that.

and Malaya has been a beneficiary of it for so long....

It is ironic that the  United States was born out of a war of national liberation against the British empire and denied that it had imperial ambitions.

Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Paine, for instance, popularized the idea that America could establish a "benevolent" empire while they condemned the British for policies of the "extermination of mankind," rather than just conquest, in their colonies.

you'd NEED alot of luck & i mean you r pure raw luck because your chances of bein get shot at & kill extremely higher than any other nations

As someone that has worked in, and enjoyed the nightlife of, Detroit - I would disagree with your assessment a bit PJ.  Like with every other place in the world - some common sense does play into the equation.  Being a ladies man is one thing that will reduce the "luck" rate somewhat - depending who you are attempting to snog, yes?

For #29 For kiwi

Funny logic, kiwi.

When US warplanes were bombing China's lands across the Yalu River, when American politicians were threatening to invade China from Korea, when the new People's Republic was being barred fromt the UN membership by major western powers hoping to strangle the young republic, should China respond or wait? Wait for what?

Did the United State invade Iraq in 2003 at Iraq's request? At UN' request? By cross 6,000 miles across the globe. And you were saying China should cross the Yalu River to defend its natioanl security?
