You are very close. In fact the seventh world power of Bible history is the Anglo-American dual world power and it consists of both Great Britain and
the United States. It has been in existence since World War I.
That the seventh king is not just one nation is brought out in the fact that the beast that represents it has "two" horns:
(Revelation 13:11) . . .And I saw another wild beast ascending out of the earth, and it had two horns like a lamb, but it began speaking as a
Someone brought out the fact that Rome has never died, and in part in Biblical prophecy that is true. For in the vision of the statue in Daniel 2
Rome was represented by the legs of iron, and that iron continues to the feet where it becomes mixed with clay. We are in the part of the vision of
the feet of iron mixed with clay. The British Empire was under Roman rule and actually stems from the Roman Empire. Also the Anglo-American world
power is both strong like iron (as was the Roman Empire) yet weak like clay at times.
If you notice in the vision given to the king of Babylon the statue is destroyed while the government that consists of the iron mixed with clay still
exists. So we can see that the United States will remain in power until the end of this system of things.
And the United Nations is the eighth world power and has been in operation since 1919, first as the League of Nations. But it got a death stroke when
it ceased to exist at the outset of World War II, but it came back to life again at the end of WWII:
(Revelation 13:3) . . .And I saw one of its heads as though slaughtered to death, but its death-stroke got healed, and all the earth followed the
wild beast with admiration.
Notice that the wild beast that represents the eighth world power is an "image" of the wild beast that comes out of the sea that has the seven heads
and ten horns.
That is it is not a separate entity, it merely reflects Satan's ruling system of things. And just as the seven heads of the wild beast that comes out
of the sea represent the seven world powers of Bible history, viz.: Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, Rome, and the Anglo-American duel
world power, so the ten horns represent the entire political system of things as ten in the Bible represents something that is complete in an earthly
When the end comes the Bible tells us that Satan will use propaganda by means of the "false prophet" (that is the seventh world power, the wild beast
that has horns like a lamb, this is indicating that it parades itself as a champion of the people, yet it is a spokesman for the dragon or Satan the
devil), the imagine of the wild beast (or the United Nations) and also the dragon itself, or direct demonic and Satanic propaganda, that will go forth
to all the kings of the earth to assemble them in array against Jehovah and his witnesses. (Religion will have been done away at that point):
(Revelation 16:13, 14) . . .And I saw three unclean inspired expressions [that looked] like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon and out of
the mouth of the wild beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet. 14 They are, in fact, expressions inspired by demons and perform signs, and
they go forth to the kings of the entire inhabited earth, to gather them together to the war of the great day of God the Almighty.
