This is a very accurate albeit misguided view. The USA is a scary country, but so was Rome. (Where do you think the USA got it from? A. England, but they (England) got it from Rome, therefore, the USA got it from Rome, through England). The Gauls should have completely sacked Rome when they had the chance, back in 387 BCE! If they did, we wouldn't be in the mess we're in now. (We'd be in another mess). lol.
