USSR filed chapter 11 and is now back under a new name, new logo, and Semi-new Management. but the economy is good military spending under control, they need only now to wait until our out of control military spending, huge deficit, and oil dependency collapse the USA and then they will again ascend to world leadership role. that is not too far off, they can wait. We have been cutting our own throuts in foreign policy for years, and the "Blowback" of our corrupt policies is fast catching up.
U.S. State Department Policy Planning Study #23, 1948:
Our real task... is to devise a pattern of relationships which will permit us to maintain this position of disparity [U.S. military- economic supremacy]... To do so, we will have to dispense with all sentimentality and day-dreaming... We should cease to talk about vague and...unreal objectives such as human rights, the raising of the living standards, and democratization... we are going to have to deal in straight power concepts. The less we are then hampered by idealistic slogans, the better. George Kennan, Director of Policy Planning. U.S. State Department. 1948
Many of the world's most repressive dictators have been friends of America.
Tyrants, torturers, killers, and sundry dictators and corrupt puppet-presidents have been aided, supported, and rewarded handsomely for their loyalty to US interests. Traditional dictators seize control through force, while constitutional dictators hold office through voting fraud or severely restricted elections, and are frequently puppets and apologists for the military juntas which control the ballot boxes. In any case, none have been democratically elected by the majority of their people in fair and open elections.
the changes in South America over the last several years are an indication that US domination is at an end, Chavez, Morales are results of corrupt US policy and long dictatorships supported by US.
