  • america sucks..

  • People say that the British used to do all sorts of cruel things, but keep two things in mind. First of all, these were different times, and second of all, the Americans were no different. During the American Revolution, the Americans forced everyone to fight for them, and those who chose to stay neutral or oppose the Revolution, the Americans would kill them, starve them, dip them in boiling tar and feather them which could leave terrible health effects. And now, in modern times, America is causing wars for their own desires (oil), and making up lies about freedom and democracy.

  • >monarchy >2016

  • While the US has done a lot of bad things, the UK has done a lot worse and you could actually link a lot of the problems in Middle East to the British Empire and how it handled the dismantle of the Ottoman Empire.

  • US because Trump, And not Britain because of their god awful immigration politics

  • The British Empire used to strap people to cannons and blow them to bits. just sayin'

  • America is better because I live there.

  • i have to say united states is better than united kingdom because american women are better than british men.

The UK still qualifies as a "great power", because it's taken quite a while for them to decline from their former height of global hegemon. Each passing decade they're a little weaker than they were before, so eventually they won't even be a great power.

@Vox One can hope they don't fall apart into 4 different countries. It would be in their best interests to have less centralization, or adopt a semi-confederacy if tensions are extreme enough.

This is the stupidest question ever.

@Vict0rian What country are you from then?

What constitutes better? Such a broad and narrow question.

Republican101, you simply said that America sucks. Why? And it could just be the Americas that suck, as you never even specified that it was the USA.
