Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
"Military strength that accomplishes nothing politically is useless and our saying that we are the only remaining superpower is just more self delusion."

I disagree.  

It may be an illusion, but it is not a delusion.  Our military "strength" serves the elites quite well.  They've made billions and run the country as they were wont for decades.  Orwell was pretty clear on this point in 1984:  The Party doesn't need Victory.  It needs War.  Permanent War.

Isn't that precisely what Bush-Cheney promise us?

The singular weirdness of Bush-Cheney is that they are so much more overt than previous administrations.  And that is a function of their religiosity.
