    "our unquestionable military prowess"

    I don't understand why Americans make this kind of claim in light of the post-WWII conflict experience. Korea and Vietnam were both messes. Somalia was a mess; the Iran hostage rescue was a mess. And dare I say it, Iraq II is a mess as well. Beating up on Panama and Grenada don't earn many prowess points. So where is all this prowess anyway?

    And if you want to go back farther, several attempts at invading Canada failed miserably :), thank goodness for that.
