The United States is a great and powerful nation. The people are nationalist, they will fight for their land. I cannot see America actually being
over-taken by a stronger foe, or foes. The cost of war is signifigant, look at how much money needs to be spent rebuilding Iraq and Afghanistan. To
defeat America would mean the countries who attacked would have to support it. America is large, heavily populated and heading towards economic
failure. Not even the mighty European Union would wish to fight the propoganda blooded Americans. The end would not justify the means, economically.
I do not expect the United States to continue down the path in which it travels today for more than another fifty years, but I don't think the USA
will be consumed by an enemy force. The US, instead, will be consumed by its own force, by its own debt.
Inside the US, prices are going up, interest rates are low, and allegedly (contradictory to price increases) inflation is low and holding steady.
Inflation is debatable at the moment, many say the statistics Washington is showing the world in regard to inflation is incorrect. If this is so,
America may not even have another 50 years.
We will just have to see how exactly the politcal watchdog, the global police, the warriors without a cause fall and I tell you now, that I believe
the cause will be entirely internal, not external. It will most likely be an economic crisis which is the cause, but what exactly will be done to
cause the end of the USA is we know it is a wonder.
I suppose it is possible that when the stock markets crash, GNP falls to an 1800s low, citizens no longer can afford McDonalds as their income is
sliced in half, but inflation is still "not applicable" a civil war could very well take place. We might even get to see The Republic of America
become America The Communism. How ironic that would be.
