Is the US empire collapsing? Some policy makers seem to think so!

Recently the US Army War College published a report titled, At Our Own Peril: DoD Risk Assessment in a Post-Primacy World. The report, which was written by high level officials from the Pentagon and multiple think tanks, essentially spells out where the American empire is going. In fact, it tacitly admits that the US government is indeed an empire.
The order and its constituent parts, first emerged from the World War II, were transformed to a unipolar system with the collapse of the Soviet Union, and have by-and-large been dominated by the United States and its major Western and Asian allies since. Status quo forces collectively are comfortable with their dominant role in dictating the terms of international security outcome and resist the emergence of rival centers of power and authority.
The report goes on to admit what almost everyone in the alternative media has been saying for over a decade. This empire is rapidly crumbling. But this report goes a step further, by suggesting that the nation state model of governance is falling apart across the board, and not just in America.
In brief, the sta­tus quo that was hatched and nurtured by U.S. strategists after World War II and has for decades been the principal ‘beat’ for DoD is not merely fraying but may, in fact, be collapsing…
…All states and traditional political authority structures are under increasing pressure from endogenous and exogenous forces… The fracturing of the post-Cold War global system is accompanied by the in­ternal fraying in the political, social, and economic fabric of practically all states.
Story here! 

I've called globalization a scheme on these pages because the very foundations of it seem to be built on sand.

The very tenets of the global economic, social and military order makes absolutely no sense!

It appears that some in govt are finally waking up to the facts that the "tinfoil" hat crowd have been crowing about for years.  War is coming between major powers not because we want it, but because the global order almost demands it.

We either get ready for the fight, accept that we're gonna get bloodied bad (God save the Marines, Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen that will be sacrificed in the effort) and steel ourselves to the fact that instead of a war of choice the next one could be a war of national survival.
