The U.S. is declining and on the wrong side of history. Why, I ask, would they support the independence movement in south Sudan, but not the Palestinians. Maybe because they're Muslim? Anyway, the money that America spends is borrowed money from China. It seems that the U.S. is going to the junkyard of history for empires.
