    Iron Otto, may he rest in peace, or in war, if he likes it better, would certainly add it has something to do with a linguistic fact, occurring on both sides of our Great European Sea. It is what it is.

    Whose Iron Otto? Well same with the Canadians and we aren't exactly the chumiest of neighbors.

    This nice fellow. A picture shot just moments after winning Roland Garros



    You have the intellectual point, nevertheless: but if it wasn't for the Canadians, Otto 'd have it.

    We are both primarily Anglo-Saxon.

    Roland Garros at the risk of sounding terribly naive isn't that a Tennis match? What does that have to do with it.

    So is Canada. So is Australia. But I think the difference is both America and Britain are extremely Captalistic, have a penchant for Hegemony as opposed to Pacifism.

    Perhaps this unholy alliance is for none other than world Anglo Domination.

    I might be wrong, but either he unified the German territories, or he gained victory at Roland Garros.

    Well, Bismarck argued that at some moment, during the course of history, Britain and the US would line up because of their language similarity, and this gathering would have major consequences.

    I'd say he hit it.

    Australia is at least as closely allied with Britain as America is. Because we're a smaller nation, it's less noticeable.

    You have to consider a variety of influences, each a fragment of the total image of reality. one of these reasons is not eclipsing another one, or you can't prove it in exact terms anyway, but just putting them next to one another instead, shapes a building of bricks, all poised to protect the English speaking Europeans across the globe. More or less.

    There is no way in heaven or hell you can tell how deep a particular influence runs, as said before, but we can't neglect the twists and turns of history. If Lincoln lost against the federation, who is to say the US had a foreign policy as it had during the past century and today. The outcome of the american civil war has to a significant degree to do with, for instance, with Australian-American friendschip, partnership, nowadays. The events of the vietnam war, when both countries were SEATO members, another product of interventionism, only strengthened the bond.

    Christianity & (post) western christian culture play their part, also. One might argue about roots of Americans, claiming that they are a-Europe, but Europe, and Britain in particular, gave birth to their fathers.

    So, there you have a massive cultural consensus, held in place by blood, streaming in veins of so called racially unaware people too. At a deeper level, though, nevertheless promoting action.

    Lest we forget a conspiracy theory here, and last but not least, the fact that enemies of English speaking people hate freedom. They just can't stand it. Every night in bed, they toss and turn ... " Oh no, the Australians are enjoying the juicy fruits of liberty a whole lot more, we have to do something about that ". And the Anglosaxons just love freedom, some of them even have the luxury of a 'patriot act'.
