    Protection--just like the Mob. The world has to keep pretending dollars are worth something or we'll just go nuts on someone and break their shit down.

    •  Yeah, I bet they're trembling... (none)
      After the joke our military has been exposed as being in Iraq, I really think all the other countries are totally terrified of our military "might".  We can't even control Iraq, I bet China and Europe are really worried.  Maybe Japan has reason to be concerned, and Jamaica, or any other country the size of a postage stamp that we could actually occupy effectively.  

      In Britain they admit to having royalty. In the United States we pretend we don't have any, and then we elect them president.

      •  Well... (none)
        The intialy miliary operations in Iraq are generally regarded as a success.  The ridiculous intelligence estimates and post-war planning have been the real issue.  Against conventional army, even the moderately stronger Iranian army, the US forces would not have much problem.  Controlling the whole of Iran, especially the Persian north and Tehran would be almost impossible.
