    Too much of ET, Superman, Mr Justice and Giulianiish ideas of 'Exceptionalism' of the US causes these type of Alpha Male Attitude, made worse by drug abuse.

    While a 'Rule Britannia, Britannia rule the waves' type of a syndrome is good for the US since it is the sole superpower, yet too much of it, bring in an Alpha Male instinctual insanity and the causes such aberrations as is evident in this case.

    Interesting thought that governed the mind - love and hate.

    DFI diminishes itself with its fascination with USA crime, politics, etc. But I have seen how things cycle here. Before long the Chinese will be acting up and BG Ray will be back to bashing them. :)

    I have many immediate and not so immediate relatives who are now Americans.

    Their mindset is quite gung ho and bordering on Guilliani Exceptionalism.

    Environment and Propaganda does affect.

    Nothing wrong, actually insularly, but those who are not American are aghast!

    US is the 'centre of the world' and they make it a point to project it as routine. So, can you blame if others are US centric?

    MS has US English as default and none even bother to change it to English English!

    That is how US imposes and changes the world. A minor issue, but very significant to illustrate the US influence on the world that is stuffed down as 'natural' and kosher.

    @W.G.Ewald :For good reason.
    Our country is getting increasing polarized (religious and economic right vs liberals and socialists) taking a cue from US I guess :)

    But this is still a big step forward from the caste based politics that we were used to a few years back.
