In an odd way, it would be nice if the U.S. was so capable. Unfortunately, we're not. Hell, we populated Iraq with our military forces for years, completely controlling that country, and it's turned into a complete mess. We've been in Afghanistan for over ten years. Have we succeeded? So please, use a little common sense. America is not the great mythological beast you fantasize about. At best, we are a blundering empire that gets it wrong as often as we get it right.
