the idea is that america’s utterly brilliant and ruthless as a superpower, but his youth still shines through: his malice towards russia just has this frighteningly childish and petulant edge.
this is supposed to be in the late 1940s- just after world war 2. The US and the Soviet Union brought their Cold War rivalry right into the newly-formed United Nations- they’d abuse their veto privilege to block resolutions involving their allies and purposely introduce ones that criticised the Soviet/Western bloc. You’d have America criticising the Soviets from cracking down on the Prague Spring, while the CIA propped up anti-communist authoritarian regimes elsewhere.
America’s ascendancy had already begun after the American Civil War, but it was WW2 that really made him a superpower. His economy had not only grown, but was undamaged whereas the old European powers were pretty much all economically ruined and demoralised.

-Neil Gaiman on Coraline
