Re: Blowback

Quite true. But, as entertaining as the spectacle of the US crumbling from within is, the problem is that if (when) it falls, it will drag a lot of other countries with it.

My own country has been on the business end of covert and open meddling by the US many times, but our economy is completely linked to theirs. So anything that happens there, we feel it here, it will take years of painful restructuring to stablish ties to other powers.

And given that in a post-us world, the options would be Russia's kleptocracy or Winnie the Pooh's CCP, the future looks even bleaker.
