Yes, I agree but... the point I'm alluding to is that 'fire breathing dragon' as a metaphor implies that there is nothing about America or being an American that is 'dragon-esque'... America always has been and always will be, in fact, a 'paper dragon'... No matter what Britian does in response to pressure from America, it is to Britian's credit that the give us 'lion heart'... A 'lion's heart' can be clearly objectified separately from 'dragon' or 'fire breathing dragon'... Islam respects the lion's heart... It is relevant given America's recent adventures in the Middle East... Richard the Lion Hearted only had to face 'fodder' in The Catholic Church's crusade against Islam... Islam objectified only sending fodder to their death against King Richard out of respect for the British King.
