WWIII: Again I ask why Britain is beating the American war drum: British Secretary Of State Refuses to Rule Out A “Preemptive Strike” On North Korea?

The American Empire (AE): On a tip from a friend here’s a short video and a short article on the final stage of empire: The 7 Signs Of An Empire In Decline and What Happened To Normal People When The Roman Economy Fell Apart? The application is not just to the AE unless you consider most of the Western countries as vassal states. The decadence is pervasive well beyond the US. I think I linked this video by Chalmers Johnson some time ago but here it is again: DECLINE of EMPIRES: The Signs of Decay. One might take WWIII as the event that ends Western empire. Here’s one further comparison to the Roman Empire: Washington Is “The New Rome”.

“TERROR AND REFUGEES.”

These millions are fleeing into our world — which, we quickly acknowledge, also has much ugliness about it. Our daily discourse ranges from crude cynicism to vigorous blasphemy, with a swath of outright pornography in the middle. Our popular culture – most clearly reflected in the content of our entertainment media — boxes the compass from idiotic to depraved, with never a glimmer of decency along the way. Yet no thinking person among us would trade our world for theirs; and, more important for the moment, while millions of people born in the Arab world are fleeing their world in order to live in ours no one has fled from ours to theirs in recent memory.
