This thread is about USA as empire

In my perspective..i think its this is true...USA has become the most powerful country [[better say political organization]] in the world..so they think they can rule the world [[what is so true]]..coz they can manipulate the economy of any country or influence the politic of any country [[like when they want to change Cuba]]...or simply they take over a country through their power...[[Iraq's case]]...using a stupid pretext just to take over of what they need....so im sure in few years..maybe 5 or 6...USA will become an empire..the Yankee empire...

so what r ur opinions??

I'm from/in the U.S.A. but I gotta disagree because the U.S. kinda sucks outside of its territory at doing anything: vietnam, Iraq, Cuba (bay of the pigs) korean war ... and will probably mess up any attempt at a super empire (although we do have a minor one as a result of our island hopping and what not i.e. puerto rico, lots of other islands...

Idk about "Yankee Empire"

but i think the US will be the top country for a long time

i think the only rivals the US could have would be
russia
japan
or south korea.


idk.

but yeah

i agree with you on the whole thing on how the US use their power.

Im interested in the other posts

i think its good that the usa try to teach other savage countries to be civilized. just like a big brother

LOL like a big brother. thats funny cuz sometimes brothers should give siblings some space for themselves. also USA will not be the empire. becuz all the world powers will make a new axis alligance. also america is gonna fall becuz china is the rising new country. china will be the next world power.

Honestly, America has a hard enough time running itself let a lone an empire. Heck, America is in debt. I really hate it when people start hating on America though. There are billions of people who hate America and talk shit about all Americans holding us responsible for what the government does. Not only that, but their criticism is usually a big load of hypocritical shit. I remember a video from some Australian on youtube talking smack about America and how we should mind our own business. America was attacked and that's why we went to war. If you want us to mind out own business, how about you keep your ass in your own business. What the fuck did we ever do to Australia?

WERE GOING THROUGH A RECCESION EVERYONE FREAK OUT!!!!!! AHHHHH OH NO!!!!! END OF OUR EMPIRE AS WE KNOW IT!!!!! Thats what the news makes it seem like =/ no one really cares. But yea our couple trillion dollar debt isnt getting any smaller. Also Countries are catching up. Like China, and South Korea. I dont think we will ever take over the world. The EU is really strong and gaining strength.

Lastly FUCK THE YANKEES. Though i like Jeter....

Our nation is ruled by oil who who has the oil has the money and the power take the Bush family for example, They own a major portion of our nations oil not only that but President Bush has his "War on Terror" which is honestly only a war to gain oil from the middle east. And whenever we want to use alternate resources oil companies crush it or hide it so that the only ones making a profit are them since our nation is completely dependent on oil IT IS RETARDED!

USA is in a crap hole right now. We are barely holding on as being the worlds greatest power, we sink so much money into our military right now that we could be using to better our country, and we have bush. Nuf said/

fuck bush. maybe hilldog or obama might pull the marines out of iraq and start minding their own bussiness in the future.
bush might have thought that getting oil under the pretext of "righteous war on terror" might make his day, but all the iraq war did was put a "d" after usa.
usad=united states of america in debt

Fun fact:


As in Afghanistan after the fall of the Taliban in 2001, these conditions of primal anarchy are ideal for criminal gangs and drug smugglers and producers. The difference is that Afghanistan had long been a major producer of opium and possessed numerous laboratories experienced in turning opium into heroin. The Taliban, on the orders of its leader, Mullah Omar, had stopped its cultivation by farmers in the parts of Afghanistan it controlled. Farmers near the southern city of Kandahar grubbed up cauliflowers and planted poppies instead as soon as the US started bombing.

Good job USA...

Afghanistan now stands for 93% of the opium production
