I think you'd be hard pushed to find any nation that could match the imperialistic tendencies of the USA! Let's see two Guif Wars, Afghanistan, Syria, Libya, military bases stretched across all continents. Not to mention trials without jury, torture as a means of warfare, vast network of spying both home and abroad, only nation ever to use a nuke!
Clearly you've never heard of the United Kingdom of Great Britain, France, Turkey (Ottoman Empire), Alexander The Great (Macedonians), Netherlands, Spain, Germany (Hitler/The Huns), the Romans, the Mongols, etc.
The quest for empire and imperialism has been going on since the dawn of man. This is nothing new.
I mean, why does a large chunk of the modern world speak English or use it as the language of business? But oooooooh noooo, it's the big bad American's fault. Our governments in the West are involved in all sorts of nasty shit. That's how the world gets on as it does. That's why people like Edward Snowden are important - because he's exposed what *really* happens versus that of some lout with a website.
Sites like Wikileaks are much more interesting to me as a citizen of the West than a site touting conspiracy like Infowars.
You're as loopy as Toucan Sam on a box of Fruit Loops and that has nothing to do with what I define as mainstream or not. The fact that you want to believe the polar opposite of mainstream media and buy into conspiracy is just as bad as believing everything you read in the mainstream media.
