Why is the US considered to be the police officers of the world?
Becuase, after world war 2 there was only two countries that
could focus on there military, the US and Soviet Union, and both
had most imput on the UN when it was started. Then the US and
Soviet Union had different views on how to run there country and
then fought with each other when communism started spreading, the
cold war. The Soviet Union fell and the US was now the supper power
of the world, with China rising behind it. Then the US became
dependent on other countries for its resources the people need and
now we just go out and protect "our friends and allies", but were
really just trying to protect what the government needs to keep our
In short, the US just go out and claim its fighting to protect
us but were just using it to get more resources.
