The inimitable Fred Reed once again calls ’em as he sees ’em, and what he sees is a little unnerving:
To judge by the rapid drift of events aboard our planetary asylum, the talons of Washington and New York on the world’s throat are fast being pried a-loose. The Global American Imperium is dying. Or so it sure looks anyway. I say talons of “New York and Washington” because of America’s foreign policy, forged in those two cities, belongs entirely to them. Americans have no influence on it. Further, none of what the Empire does abroad is of any benefit to Americans. Do you care at all what happens in Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen, or the South China Sea? Do you want to pay for it? America has been hijacked.
No doubt DC is the world’s prime source of turmoil, bloodshed, and mayhem, and as evidenced by Philippines President Duterte’s bristling responses to DC’s continued occupation of his country, he and many others around the world have had enough. The DC Empire is crumbling, as all empires eventually do. Sooner or later, the subjugated find their backbones and revolt. The bad news is that those whose fat fingers operate the controls of the machinery of power might do something cosmically stupid to hold on to that power. But maybe we’ll get lucky.
