The militarization of the United States is one of the open sores bleeding our democracy. Add to that our proliferation of guns and violence, our demonstrated ability to bomb and destroy, and a significant portion of the population which lives in a bubble denying reality, and what do you expect when you hear that the United States is considered by most developed and undeveloped countries as the Disneyland of mass destruction and the most dangerous threat to the continued existence of human life on this planet.
A side observation suggests that America is in decline and will soon (if not already) be reduced and eclipsed by other nations, like China. Although this might actually be a good thing for the safety of the planet, I’m not so sure that the wing-nuts running around in positions of responsibility will not use their hurt feelings to start throwing excrement down from the trees. The threat to the American Empire just might be the impetus leading to the annihilation of civilization.
