USA – so yesterday! May 13, 2008

Posted by Al in : interesting,politics , trackback

America has had its (albeit brief) time as THE global superpower, and it is slowly sinking into senility and decline. Forget the Roman empire, this is more like sudden onset of Alzheimers. It wasn’t until after the second World War that America really became a superpower, and once it was clear that Russia was finished (late ’80’s) then no other nation could possibly challenge America’s supremacy: but it hasn’t been long before the USA’s dependence on oil, and its continued presence in Iraq, has weakened this once great nation to the point where it would now fail to compete with Russia, China or India in any real economic battle, and the cost of any further military activity might result in the Middle East actually owning America outright!
