British on the War and the U.S.

Interesting piece at the Washington Post on the British attitude towards the U.S. and a possible war with Iraq.

While the typical attacks on Bush and "American idiocy" get my ire up (they never seem to offer real alternatives), I can nonetheless understand (if not agree with) their concern over our dominance: if you were them, would you like the fact that there was another country that was basically able to do whatever it wants in the world, if it puts its mind to it? I don't think they should be worried, because we generally do operate with good intentions, but I can still understand their unease.
