I have ask my self that question and I want to hear your answers too. The wars in Iraq and Afganistan are enough to say that Americans think that they are the secure of the world. The war between Iraq and Iran. The war between Israel and Siria. In almost every new conflict Americans are there to find to make the region secure. I think that Americans are not the king`s of the world and I think that Americans need to see they're country they're continent and to not worried for something that happens 7000 miles from them. What did you think? Are Americans really think that they're the kings of the world? and if the answer is Yes can you say me some good reasons why they think that?

I don't think anyone is secure. The only reason you hear about Americans in the war is you are an American. You don't hear about Britain or Germany or whoever because we don't get their news. Not very nice words for an American.

No one is really secure. Even thoug something is happening over seas, it still affects many aspects of your life - cost of items, possiblity of nuclear fallout. I believe Americas feel secure because none of this is happening on their own soil. We are separated from all of the wars and major goings on. Plus we have so much going on our own homefront to worry about, how can we find time to worry about things going on an ocean wawy?
