Whether We Like It or Not...

Obama said this yesterday:
"It is a vital national security interest of the United States to reduce these conflicts because whether we like it or not, we remain a dominant military superpower, and when conflicts break out, one way or another we get pulled into them."
My emphasis.

I suspect that remark was unintentionally revealing.  The man does not like it that America is a superpower, and especially that we are the only one still standing.

Personally, I think it's absolutely essential that America remain a superpower – and preferably the only one still standing.  I'd much prefer that America be the world's cop rather than, say, Iran, India, Israel, or (shudder) France...
