Because its the greatest super power of the world, having been there for more then 400 years winning 1st WW , saving Europe in 2nd WW and winning war at the same time in the eastern front,

having enough resources to land man on moon, having nuclear weapons and ballistic weapons, aircraft carriers, latest and kool looking fighters and bombers.because they educated themselves to gain such technology and made them financially so strong that they can afford such technology (1 B2 costs 1 billion USD)

having such dedicated people who work for the betterment of the nation, producing enough wheat and other agricultural products that they export to other countries,

having such political influence that Arabs lick their feet, and finance them to attack rival Muslim countries ????

even though lost some battles and wars but still being successful to achieve what ever is best for their national interest.

sending the highest % of rescue support in Tsunami and Pakistani earth quake.

Last but not least, related to the above point,

people can say US is bad, but ask those children in Azad kashmir, the lives of whom were saved by US Chinoke helicopters....


Arnt these double standards that Country like Saudi Arab supports US to attack IRAN ???? and YAMAN supported in war against IRAQ by providing logistic support ????

Arnt these double standards that we curse US for attacking Arabs who never supported us in Kashmir issue (On record statements of Yasir Arafat and Saddam saying Kashmir is part of India) and not thank them for saving our children and people with the logistics support in Kashmir Earthquake relief efforts ?????

Arnt these double standards that in a topic where some of the most frequent moderators and members are asked question about favorite heroes write the names of Indian actors and not of Our brave soldiers who sacrificed their lives for our freedom?????"
