Militarily, economically and politically, as has always been the case with Empires.
It's a shame really, your country used to be the shining beacon of hope for the impoverished and abused, now it is shrouded in fear, hate and lies. I
hope you can come out the end of it in 1 piece like us British did. Plus i hope we are clever enough not to be dragged down with you.
Interestingly, PM, for all the dark and desparate picture you paint of the USA, there appears to be a large number of people still trying to get
I'm not entirely sure you are 100% wrong, by any means. By the same token you appear, to me, to have a really jaded picture in your mind and seem to
not be bothered by the fact that the USA could be brought down.
That is sad, but mainly because I live here. I don't live in fear, I'm not sure we're right in some of the ways we are handling the problems in
the Middle East, but I sure don't think I take delight, secret, or otherwise, in seeing Iraq, Iran, Saudi Arabia, or any of the other countries being
as badly mauled as some of them are.
Seems like we take delight in pounding our chests and throwing around numbers of people who will, ultimately, be maimed or die, as a result of this
war, which I too, feel is coming. But then, I had the distinct and strange "honor" of having been a military medic in combat conditions in my
life, and I don't just see the various types of trauma, and death as numbers to be bandied about, or the fate of, perhaps millions of people to be
slapped around so lightly on forums.
War is tragedy, maiming and death are pretty absolute, and for the most part, final. I don't wish that on anyone.
That is what would happen if the US ever went down. Even in a weakened state, do you think, in such a cavlier fashion, that the US wouldn't make
life rough on the rest of the world?
Not an outcome that I want to see...
