27. There is a valid argument that the only superpower in the world
Disproportionately influences events, though. It is at least arguable that many of these incidents might not have taken place. The US is always seeking to influence the politics of other countries and if it left them alone, it is possible that the infighting would not be as severe. So I can kind of get where the OP comes from. True there would still be assassinations in other countries, some by lone nuts and some for internal reasons, but with the sole superpower being the way it is, there is also the possibility of the superpower's interference or influence contributing to the problem. As US citizens we have some responsibility.
