"Without America's contribution, English today would enjoy a global importance on a par with Portuguese."
Now that the Muslims' camel nose is under our too-generous big tents and British commercial interests are no longer much of a cat's paw for military intervention (or vice versa), and having so oft pulled the chestnut hairs of the British lion out of the fire*, now is not the time for us give it a "Brazilian."

"...out of the fire"? In a pig's eye! Cunicula, cuniculi, we lost the canal because of thee.

The United States to Great Britain Mary Baker Eddy May 15, 1898 (Written when Mrs Eddy was tinkering with the ideas of the Brtiish-Israelite movement.)
Hail, brother! fling thy banner/To the billows and the breeze;/We proffer thee warm welcome/
With our hand, though not our knees. [Nuf sed...]
Lord of the main and manor!/Thy palm, in ancient day,/Didst rock the country's cradle/
That wakes thy laureate's lay.
The hoar fight is forgotten;/Our eagle, like the dove,/Returns to bless a bridal/
Betokened from above.
List, brother! angels whisper/To Judah's sceptred race, —"Thou of the self-same spirit,/
Allied by nations' grace,
"Wouldst cheer the hosts of heaven;/For Anglo-Israel, lo!/Is marching under orders;/
His hand averts the blow."
Brave Britain, blest America! /Unite your battle-plan;/Victorious, all who live it, —
The love for God and man.
