Back on topic. I was more or less pointing out, albeit in a trollish manner, that firepower does not equate to military competency. You can't just say "YEA MURICA GOT DA NEWKZ #1 IN HISTORY BABY", they're from two different periods in history.

You literally have to be brain dead to believe that America has had more influence on a global scale than the British empire.
