Can someone explain to me why US fails so much in GSM world? Why can't they have one phone with all major mobilie network providers? Why there is different phone for each one, and why are they all branded? And most importantly, why they arrive 6 months after official release?

Poor !
US Network providers are all getting their version of the SGII while failed with the Arc...

@Admad, maybe it is because Apple thinks that the other version look similar to the iPhone 3gs and might sue to block sales in the US.

Nah, its not due to Apple.
Competition between US networks, especialy between Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint is extremely high, they all want to totaly differentiate themselves to lock customers into 24month contracts, they load network specific software e.g Maps, IM etc...
Its been like that for many years, since the days of Window Mobile, even HTC let US networks customise their phones e.g the Verizon Thunderbolt which is a customized DesireHD, EVO 4G which is a customized Desire in an HD2 chassis etc... They have a very interesting phone industry in the US.
