Actually she is only a figurehead with ceremonial duties and no real power.

All Britain did was pass the mantle to the United States. I just wish we could dish it off to someone else, maybe China. Let them police the world for a change.

The conceit of Americans that they police the world is no more than a cover for naked self interest. It is an absurd distortion of reality. You happily support oppressive regimes when it suits you. You only entered WW2 when Germany and Japan declared war on you, and would have been happy to see Britain and Europe fall to the Nazis. And in the meantime the American economy was booming selling weapons to us.

We were no better of course, invading Africa under the pretext that Africans were not civilised enough to look after themselves. It will be China's turn next to exercise power.
