This is a serious question. I personally always thought we had more to fear from the USA than we did from the USSR. I'm not a left wing activist but i'm truly interested in your opinions on the subject. Please can I ask for reasoned debate and no nastiness? Thanks..........

I think it is Colombia or South Africa isn't it. Congo and Somalia are a bit dicey as well.

If you are alluding to the support given by sucessive UK governments to US policy in the Middle East making us a target for terrorism, you are probably right

Read some Chomsky, like 'Rogue States' and if you accept it is objective in it's assessments it can give you quite a different viewpoint on world affairs.

I suppose we will see if the world becomes safer as American power declines? It depends what fills the vacuum really. One thing is certain,we don't care about what we don't see on TV.

Grafter,China is being built up to take over from America as the worlds policeman. The Royal Institute of International Affairs decided it in the Thirties and published it in their magazine. For some strange reason everything they say comes true.They planned the EU and what do you know there it is.Why do all their dreams come true? It may be because the RIIA was set up by the richest people on the planet.Yes this is conspiracy but it is not a theory, it's not hidden,anyone who takes the trouble can verify it for themselves.HGWellsof the Fabian Society,the left wing of the RIIA,wrote a book "The Open Conspiracy" all about it,but who reads books any more?Anyone heard of Cecil Rhodes and his secret society,the Round Table. Anyone can tell you that it's long gone but how do you explain how it's aims are coming true?

Oh dear Nixon Scraypes, because someone can see a trend and set out what they think may happen, does not mean they have created it. Good try, though.

China is indeed becoming a fiscal power and because of this it will have no need to prove itself millitarilly, though that is up for discussion; but the most likely fuel for dangerous political push is more likely to come from a dissatisfied and underdog state that has lost land and or honour to another close by.............like Iraq or Syria who were once strong, affluent and able but have been reduced to rubble very quickly. You have to ask why war happens? It is usually because of land loss and pride than money.
