There are no real "Empires" anymore. Rome used to be massive, look at it now. Everybody has individual freedom, leading to many individual nations, rather than a smaller number of super-countries.
I agree with you. War seems so... rediculous these days, doesn't it? At least the ones continued by the USA. (Arabic countries started it!)
Get your facts right? The Us attacked AFGAHNISTAN over the Terrorist attacks. The war in Iraq happened because they were supposedly harboring weapons of mass destruction that could be possibly USED in future terrorist attacks.
When the hell did Europe try to colonize the Middle-East? And if they did, why wouldn't I know about as spectacular a failure as a technologically inferior region trying to colonize a superior region?
Believe it or not, because of the Crusades, the Muslims and Christians and maybe the Catholics too, are all pissed at each other still for that event, which is why 9/11 happened and a bunch of other shit; but 9/11 is the biggest and latest highlight.
Are you fucking nuts? China can NUKE THE SHIT out of the States, they're like the USSR of today, without Stalin of course, which makes things a hell of a lot better.
Not that extremists of any affiliation will ever have the manpower to actually exterminate anything that can powerfully influence other parts of the world.
We have other power sources now. Do you think the only way we get all of our power is by burning oil? We have many hydroelectric dams right now. And businesses don't run on power. They run on money. As long as people can buy stuff, there is business, and hence, jobs to give people more money to buy stuff.Business would be down and destroyed LONG long before they invented a new power source.
We have many alternatives right now.Inventing such a thing takes atleast 10 years, let alone building new powerplants and such.
Business would be down and destroyed LONG long before they invented a new power source. Inventing such a thing takes atleast 10 years, let alone building new powerplants and such. By that time america will be as rich as a third world country, it will be total chaos.
