What is the Anglo America world power?

It is not so much Anglo American as American. Before the second world war, the British Empire was the dominant world power. However the British expended so much of their resources defending freedom in World War 2 that by the end of it they were no longer in that position. The economic might of America grew and was opposed by the other political philosophy, Communism in the USSR. The cold war began and Britain (Anglo) declined even further, leaving America and Russia as the two super powers. However, the beliefs and values of the people of Britain (and much of the remains of the British empire) are very similar to those of America and President Reagan and the British Prime Minister, Mrs Thatcher managed negotiate the end of communism which proved in the end to be a failed philosophy. This friendship and endeavor means that there is a 'special' relationship between the peoples of Britain and The United States - we support each other on the world stage. This is the Anglo American alliance. However, the developing countries and the peoples of Africa are soon going to make their mark on the direction the world goes, both Britain and America are to some extend a spent force.
