I was thinking the same, but with a different twist. US has a unique history of being unchallenged (but British Empire once) for their own territory. Remember how neither Brits nor France did care that much for the land? How Russians sold the Freaking Alaska? USA hasn't had war on their own land for I-don't-know-how-long. Now compare with France, Germany, England and all the Europe countries having to fight right and left, daily... I feel if the world started today, everybody would be looking to have a piece of USA for themselves...
To me, you have to really go full blast into making it very, very military heavy (and compromise on other developmental lines) to make it work.
