Obama's Wars on Humanity - by Stephen Lendman
America's a poster child failed state, defined in a recent article as follows:
(1) An inability or unwillingness to protect its citizens from violence and other forms of harm.
(2) Its abrogation of rule of law standards.
(3) Its lawless belligerent pursuits.
(4) If nominal democracies, its policy deficiencies, exposing a serious democratic deficit.
Ignoring social and other homeland needs, America's business is war, more war, imperial wars, defiantly heading the nation toward tyranny and ruin because of an addiction it can't or won't quit.
Immanuel Wallerstein believes America's been "a fading global power since the 1970s, and the US response to the (9/11) terrorist attacks has accelerated this decline....the economic, political and military factors that contributed to US hegemony are the same factors that will inexorably produce the coming US decline."
