This comment is based on the one sentence and the title above.

Saying it is because of "American global domination" is underestimating the ugly reality of US foreign policy.
The USA not only distabilizes, invades and bombs countries it also MANUFACTURES and PERPETUATES misery, poverty and hunger.
That country has to go ASAP !

And a former CIA agent has this to say about conflicts, wars and civil wars worldwide:
" ... everything it happens in Latin America or any place else in the world begins in our congress."

He ranted for while and not that enough people were surprised or offended to take action. It's like the US Congress.

America has been occupied. Not the American people are to blame. They are being occupied as well.

And even the people in goverment and the military who do not like the direction things are going are becoming a minority not from a lack of a voice but from the backlash from excercises their voices.

That excuse is invalid.
"The American people are good, it is US administrations that are bad" my a$$.
Aren't Americans the "freest" people ?
Dont they elect their governments and senators ?
Dont they have the right to protest against the policies of their governments and effect change ?

So they are fully responsible for the actions of their governments more than any other people.

At the same time the US is the most deceitful empire and society in history. Even Mark Steyn realized that after some years.

This US arrogance is sickening. Is the US telling the UN official "i pay your salary, so behave !"
The US might be the biggest contributor ( ca. 1 billion USD annual contribution making up some 20% or less of UN budget ) but it is also by far the biggest beneficiary. Actually the UN is rightly called a US tool. It is sure the cheapest tool of US foreign policy. The US is dramatically losing influence globally (IMF/world bank, dollar, popular culture, trade,...) and with this kind of arrogance it
will only accelerate its decline.
