The US has not captured and kept other nations for the purpose of extracting wealth as the British Empire and others have done. The question is seriously disturbed.

Best Answer

Not so. The US just outsources to the corporate sector. And actually Britain did the same with the British East India Company and HBC in Canada. America learned well from mother.

Those in power know damn well they are in power and strive to keep and increase it. Denial of power is not a characterisitic of the powerful and Americans are no exception.

Best Answer

The citizens of any empire at any time were ignorant of politics. The ones that understood the politics were living in lands that were occupied by the empire. I'm not saying Americans are ignorant because the US isn't an empire in my eyes. It's a wanna be empire.

Best Answer

The US gave up the concept of being an actual Empire way back when the Philippines became independent. We usually prefer to exert influence through economics--much less violent and cheaper than trying to take over other countries as traditional empires did.

Best Answer

I see it as semantics. Like instead of colonies the US has "protectorates." And I think Iraq would disagree that the US is about "soft power"

Best Answer

Our military is almost out of Iraq and we're not running it as part of an Empire with perpetual occupation and an US government. There's a big difference.

Best Answer

The government in Iraq and Afghanistan were handpicked in Washington. Delegating does not necessarily equal giving up power and control. England did things a bit differently from Rome but they were both empires.

Best Answer

Yes, and both conquered and occupied territories with the intent of keeping them and ruling them.
