When you see the French and German police carrying submachine guns (machine pistols) on a regular basis; when you see gun shops in France with FALN "assault rifles" on display in their front windows; when you ask for gun flints (for a flintlock) at a gun store in France and owner doesn't even know what you're talking about; when a 1998 Oxfam reports shows that between 1995 and 1997 the UK sold small arms to over 100 countries; when Viet Nam has reportedly transferred weapons to Myanmar; when Lebanon, Liberia, Burkina Faso, and Niger have transferred weapons to Sierra Leone; when Namibia has transferred them to the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and Angola; Burkina Faso to Benin...and 88% of the world trade in military small arms comes from the five permanent members of the US Security Council....

No, I don't worry about why other countries are "frightened" of the US.
