do not forget that george h.w. bush was a one term president despite his victory against iraq. compared to him, obama is a clueless amateur. your last post to me which i did not get a chance to answer asked regarding the united states: what don't you get, the "great," or the "super power." here is the answer: being a super power is a relative term. the united states has not won any real wars since wwii, which it won with a huge alliance. the soviet union collapsed as a result of its own imperialistic practices, its use of widespread torture and its marxist economic model. yet, cuba, a tiny state next to us shores, is still a communist state. the us is losing its war on terror on many fronts. it has no influence whatever in majority muslim states like pakistan. iran, syria and now perhaps egypt. the open meddling in egyptian affairs, a us ally, will leave a bitter taste for all other allies.
