The American Empire Is Quickly Declining

Consummate insider Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson – former chief of staff to Colin Powell, and now distinguished adjunct professor of Government and Public Policy at William & Mary – notes that the U.S. is exhibiting all of the signs of a failing empire, including:

  • Relying on massive military force (and using gigantic complexes to support it) as the be-all and end-all of power, and belittling diplomacy
  • Maintaining standing armies, instead of disbanding military forces between wars
  • Using more mercenary forces than citizen troops
  • Spending disproportionately large amounts of blood and treasure in order to counter threats on the status quo … which simply exacerbates the threat against the empire
  • Going ethically and morally bankrupt
  • Ending up up having bankers and financiers end up running the real power
  • Suffering great hiccups in finance and trade
  • The leaders no longer really believe in or follow the ideals of the founders

The U.S. is also following the age-old recipe for imperial decline by:

      It is eerily reminiscent of the fall of Rome, is it not?

        Except the barbarians were holding axes when they breached the city gates of Rome. This time they will have nuclear weapons. The analogy starts to break down here dramatically.

    USSR crashed and it seems they are the better for it. We had a chance to allow the system to clean itself up but the politicians caved to the crying of business and threw a life ring, having The People believe had they not these business’ would disappear and the US would crumble. That was a load of dung and has swept reality under the rug, leaving us with an insidious death.

    Should have let it ALL crash in 2008.
    Now the derivatives crash will seal the deal for good.
    At least all those COP and Politician pensions will evaporate!
