The eagle meant more to Rome than it does to the US as a national symbol.
The eagle was military prestige in Rome, if your army lost their eagle in battle, woe unto them! Decimation time.. line up. It was a travesty to lose
the eagle in battle.
Since Rome fell, its natural the wings will be gone from the Lion, if the Lion symbolizes evil. If it symbolizes good then the wings being gone could
indeed be a reference to the US, but that could be interpreted in so many different ways; its not really concrete in any way as a symbol of prophecy
