Re: The war is over, the empire is gone

The wealth of the Old Empires of Europe had already ended up in the USA by 1918.

WW2 just finished off what had already started, but it was certainly *by design*.

American superpower post WW2 industrial and military dominance wasn't by accident and those behind it saw it as a continuation of the founding of the USA, to have come full circle and finally crushed the "enemy" of a free America - the old Empires - without having to fight them!
