Why do US governments think they are the 'World Police'?
Either really powerful people think they are the world police or weak people assume foolishly that they are the world police. In either case, they start dominating the world. But only the strong nation can succeed really in this. In the forest, both lion and fox try to dominate the other animals. For a while, the fox may succeed, but it is the lion that is the king of the forest. Likewise USA and Iran are both behaving in a dominant mood and threatening others. But Iran is like a fox. It will run away at a real threat or attack to itself. It is the USA that is a strong country and will continue to dominate for some more time.
If only we were! The UN is the world police. The US is only the town bully who takes what he wants, beats up who he wants, and intimidates the police (whom have deputized him). Unfortunately, the bully now has tertiary syphilis and is living on borrowed time and borrowed money.
I think their 'police' status is falling. With their economic-recession and war on terror almost at an end, I doubt they'll be known as the world police for very much longer.
They've been the dominate superpower since Russia failed - now China is becoming the new-superpower. Let's see if America has their way around the world when China becomes the new Russia to content with. Let's not hope they have a radical idea on Communism spreading as well, I doubt China are like the Russians.
Because there is lots and lots of profit in war. And if we have endless war, the corporations and their political bedfellows who profit from war can profit from it endlessly.
