There was a sci-fi movie back in the 1970s where the united states was attacked by nuclear super powers. Russia and China teamed up, combined their nuclear weapons, launched an attacked and destroyed the United States.
The side effect was with all of those nuclear bombs going off in one area, the earth was knocked off its axis.
The united states has a monopoly on war. Besides nuclear war, there is no other nation that can stand up to us.
One way to bring the US to its knees is through economic collapse. This is the one thing our out of control greed will help accomplish.
This debt ceiling and default stuff might make the world wonder if they would be better off without us.
What other nation flies drone strikes into other nations?
What nation kidnaps people?
What nation works to overthrow foreign governments?
What nation pays its workers minimum wage, then tells them to sign up for welfare?
Maybe the world would be better off without the United States leading the way?
