For the first time in history, the world will be interdependent and not dominated by one or two powers.

The world has been economically interdependant for Centuries-everybody has to trade stuff they've got for stuff they haven't got.

Declining powers try to spread their influence and control elsewhere, thats why we've had colonisation and wars.

The notion of America being the worlds policeman is a false claim and a sham.

They cant afford to go around the world poking their noses in everybody elses affairs anymore.

Neither can we.

And whilst im here im disgusted with our servile (to the USA ) gutless goverment still trying to justify being in Afghanistan after TEN years fighting a futile war they will never win.

You want to call it 'world policeman' ... it's ok with me (I reckon you must have your well substantiated motives...)


Who do you want to replace the American leadership with...?? Can you also elaborate on that..??

If we all think alike .... then, nobody is thinking

the fear is that America becomes isolationists and withdraws.



if that is to happen, who comes to the rescue of revolutionaries?

well written letter.

However we have no clue wheter it will be better or not. Neither knows the Author.
And in this context, the relative decline of the US helps build a more balanced and perhaps more harmonious world, worth celebrating even by Americans.
