Maybe he thinks I'm a Communists or from the USSR or something? Beats me. Perhaps its one those things where the Cold War is just so hard to let go of.

Okay, I admit that that was a little profound. I was half asleep when I wrote it.

It's alright man...

I have to agree with LeatherNeckRVA and say post WWII U.S.A also. Whether brief or long, we had more surperiority over the world then anyone at any single time. Second place= U.K

I don't know if anyone else said this before but it's very easy to answer this. The United States at the end of ww2 was by far the most powerful nation ever for one reason they had the atomic bomb. Directly after the war the USA could have done as they wanted.

Yup, post WW2 USA. Besides having the bomb, our economy was virtually untouched by the war. We were just getting into high gear when the war ended. Our manpower wasn't even tapped to capacity yet. The russians on the other hand were economically strapped by wars end. Besides being broke, they had no more manpower reserves to throw into any kind of large conflict.

USA 1
UK 2
France 3 (Just Kidding )

LeatherNeckRVA you are wrong to say that USA was the only one with the A bomb. USSR also had the A bomb but they weren't ready to cowardly drop them on Japanese or Germans. I say the USA took a cowardly way out by dropping the A-bombs. Also you should learn that USSR had the most superiority in the water, and is still does. USA hasnt gone throw wut USSR did during the WW2. If you look at the army strength before the WW2,USSR was the strongest nation, with it's Red Army be its side, it was unstoppable as proved during the WW2.
