US: Cowboy attitude

Americans are very angry at French criticism of the US. Martin Storey is a bright, well-informed, generous French WAISer, who knows the US well, His opinion cannot be dismissed: "One of the posters we saw on TV during the big demonstrations for peace was from the US: "Stop Mad Cowboy Disease!". That struck a chord. One country leader may have the aspirations of Hitler and perhaps even an atomic bomb, but it is Bush who has the power to start a chain reaction that would really mess up the world as we know it. As for the US's place in the world, I'm convinced much harm has already been done".
