Because Europe is America's biggest bitch.
Seriously, I've asked around, and quite a few europeans feel this way about America.

Not a day goes by where i don't lament the fact that many fellow Americans would be proud of this.

MarcusZMonkey - Take away the US and England wouldn't even exist still, at least as a sovereign nation. The supplies from the US are what allowed GB to hold on long enough to turn the tide.

For some reason King Europe reminds me of King Julian from Madagascar. XD Like the European Union he's silly and yet powerful enough for people to listen (without any clear explanation)

Oh that is far less accurate then I would think the US/EU relationship is.

Thank you for your comment, it's very much appreciated. I don't harbour any grudge against anyone (or states, for that matter). I just don't agree with some decisions, including those of my own government.
Let's just say that I advocate an anti-militaristic stance, but I also realize that sometimes, this could be naive. In the worst case, I'm dead wrong, military action is necessary and I'm still bumbling about diplomacy.
All in all, I'm a secretary who has some knowledge about history. I'm not a politician, so a lot of things are beyond my grasp. I am also a social creature who has met a few Americans in her day. My verdict: People are people. Some are saints, some are douchebags. The only thing they had in common was an affinity for chitchat and an incredible good ear for accents.
So indeed, you are right: The USA have never gone overboard. But from what I know about your government structure, there are various failsaves in place

I'm an American, born in Germany. As a result I'm usually at the receiving end of criticsim on either side.
You are incredibly gifted writer and you're background knowledge of diplomacy and politics is exemplary but the overwhelming flaw in your argument about the US and all it's conquests is that up till recently (span of 30 years) the "interventions" has been usually to protect our economic interests (oil/complanies) not a moral or to benefit the invaded country. Which is why the government is reluctant to help any other country when it does not serve its benefit while Iraq it had oil so that is self explanatory.
You're right the government had to make difficult decisions in the past but you have to give the US some kudos in respect to never going power crazy besides being money grubbing (capitalists). If things were different EXTREMELY DIFFERENT and the education system and elections were really fucked the US could end up as another NAZI faction trying to take over the world, which is still in the realm of possibility with the way things are going. Fortunately the US tries to be the advocate for good and peace never really upholding its values but it tries, at least that's what we like to think.
Please don't harbor any ill will towards the states. Its difficult as it is. You are very perceptive and emphatic and its appreciated that you're able to articulate your thought in a manner understandable and free of insult.
