The Roman and Egyptian Empires never really fell, they collapsed as thier leadership got lazy. Constantine moved the capital, withdrew troops from
border provinces and started the end of Rome. Egytians Melded thier RUlers with the Romans and Greeks and just let thier empire fall apart internaly.
Just a note on history not a prediction for the US.
Also, since the invention of the nuclear bomb there have been no nuclear empires to fall. The ability to win or mutualy anihilate is new and has no
historical basis. If anything the cold war between the US and the USSR/Soviets showed that nuclear empire stale-mate, world anihilate, or wait for one
of them to collapse internaly.
I doubt the US will ever fall to other forces. Internal collapse is more likely. And it would probably have to be economic internal collapse since its
representative democracy (ie Republic) is rather stable in terms of governments.
