But it is and always was???
Unfortunately it could one day happen! It wouldn't be the first time tho. So if are past history is an indication of the future we are headed that way now.
I think it will be smashed one day. It is already falling internally.. Once that process reaches a certain level then some power in the world will throw the dice for world power and finish it of with a nuclear strike.
They do start to die from within.. But then they reach a certain level of internal decay and competitors on the outside see it happening and then decide.. Now is the time to Strike and finish them off...
Well.. The US might not get blown up.. Maybe Yellowstone will blow up naturally and then no one else will have to do any nukeing..
It will happen. Into about 8 countries. Texas will go first.
that would leaved to WW3
