Nothing can stop the decline of American Imperialism, not even slow the dissolution of this imperialism down. That’s the singularity of the empire the US built over the last century starting when they set foot in Europe for the First World War. One day soon the world will be more powerful than the USA. They already are altogether and China alone in PPP. Not private-Public-Partnership but Purchasing-Power-Parity. That means the America dollar has less and less purchasing power in the USA, let alone the world.
The USA started military invasions and wars that will never end except by the withdrawal of American troops like in Vietnam in 1975. The bald eagle will run, its tail tightly squeezed between, its legs, if it still has one feather on its ass.
Obama was their last chance to settle their commercial relations with the world but they do not understand that the cost of their military forces in the world are not exports but imported costs and they make their balance of payments so bad that they would have to export three or four times more American-made goods in the world, but the dollar does not help, even if it is slowing edging down.
And of course the easy mistake is done by Congress or the White House. Congress focuses on Russia-Iran-North-Korea. The White House focuses on China-North-Korea-Iran. They should concentrate on the Shanghai Cooperation Organization.
In fact the result if the same. Europe is NOT the challenger. Russia is NOT the challenger. China is NOT the challenger. Iran is NOT the challenger. North Korea is NOT the challenger. India is NOT the challenger, etc. The challenger is the whole world under the leadership of SCO and their partner-alliances mostly centered on Asia with Europe as a possible extension and Africa as the main beneficiary.
It is not in fact the fall of the USA only. It is the fall of the West and the rise of the East. In the West it is the fall of the USA to the benefit of Europe.
The East will never be dominated by ONE country now India is awakening and Pakistan will soon awaken as soon as the Americans are out of Afghanistan (and the Middle East), and that is soon.
Let Trump send a few thousand troops so that they can see the death toll rise to ten a week or more.
The American century was finished when in 2016, one hundred years after 1916 and the turning point of the First World War and the arrival of American troops on European soil, they elected the Donald to the White House he has transformed into a circus, though without Indians, without buffaloes, without slaves, but with neo-Nazis, white supremacists, white nationalists, racists, anti-Semites, KKK (you know kill kill kill) and other racial, ethnic, religious, social bigots.
It reminds me of the Yolo County Fair in California I went to with my son in the 1980s and the clown there was a Donald too, but Ronald McDONALD. At least he was feeding people with a few dimes.
Bye Bye USA and your master of Ceremonies, or is it a Maître d’, is up to all expectations. He might even provide a nuclear firework or two, or an omelette flambée in Mar-a-Lago.
Luckily the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the armed forces decided to speak up supported by the Defense Secretary. The red button is thus protected by the second identity.
