I have to agree with the first half of Mr Happy's response: most people are snobs.....the US wants to hold onto it's empire.
Disagree with the statement that this country is controlled by 'Christian fanatics'. If that was so there wouldn't be so many baby killings...this country's headed more towards embracing Islam. Crap, remember when the trade center got hit...Oprah went on national tv and starts reading from the Kuran! Good grief. Like they (hollywood) what to "oh oh....it's not ALL bad, islam is good, these were some bad guys...we must embrace them, negotiate and understand...let's all be friends.." Have intelligence levels just dropped sharply? We got our butts kicked by a radical Islamic terroist group and these idiots want to promote it? No thanks, I'd rather cling to my guns, my Bible, and my Christianity. Oh, yes, I know that Christian people go off the deep end like bombing abortion clinics but crap, at least the doctrine doesn't encourage violence and 'death to infadels'.
Nobody should have nuclear weapons, only nuclear power which needs to be pursued ardently.
One more thing, the ozone is shrinking, the proof is in the pudding. Whether we are the direct cause or mother nature is not the point. It is shrinking and we need to take care of our environment.
