    "If Americans are so stupid how do you suppose we've manage to lead the world for the past 150 years?" Yes, you lead the world into wars everywhere around the globe. This is why you had your 911 and your citizens can not go anywhere in the world in safety. "Compare the innovations from the U.S.A. in machinery, medicine, medications, electronics, aerospace, economics, law, and on and on, to any other country in the world." Innovations? Most of your innvations came from scientists that came over and educated from countries other than the USA. "Which country makes the largest contributions to the United Nations..." Which country sells more arms and weapons to whomever has the money to pay for it, regardless if they are terrorists or not. The USA. Which country supported and continues to support tyrant and oppressive regims, like Saudi Arabia, Pakistan among others and also at one time Sadam Hussein, the Shah of Iran and others as well. The USA. You are right about a couple of things, you are far from perfect and you do make lots of mistakes. So next time you accuse or point fingers at others, take a look at yourselves and clean up your own act before you demand anything from others ot tell them how they should act or live. No one appointed your beloved America to police this world and no one cares to serve your needs or interests or to live like you do.
