A World Without America

... "if the day were to come that the U.S. does collapse economically, financially, politically and strategically, or alternatively butt out of worldly affairs as most seem to wish, not completely but enough to cause major shifts, then the world may be faced with a global situation of startling instability and great risk. A global shift in power of which the end product cannot be accurately guessed at, nor can it be forecast with any exactitude's"...

I've seen this one before, Ottavio!

Good stuff!

Thanks Donald,

Many indeed would have seen it before but equally, there are many who have not.

As a video, it neatly encapsulates both the characteristics and purpose of this blog such that I was compelled to post it regardless of age.

I shudder at the thought of Iraq overtaking Kuwait...how diffent the world might have been.
Thank you GHWB and GWB.

I too have seen this one before, but it alway has the same impact.

Thanks

I've not seen this before. I find it unnerving to think that I live in a State (California) that this video would be interpreted as a blatant nationalistic propaganda hit and not very in tune with the new "global village" mentality that seems to be in vogue these days....
...I appreciate its simplicity, and its direct message. It reminds me a little of a Canadian named Gordon something-or-another who wrote a brilliant essay in the 70's of why America was good for the world..... and got pelted out of a career for it....

Lastly, I will blogroll you with your permission. I like the variety of thought here. Kudos!

truth pain: Thanks for the link, I have added yours to mine.

DD2: It's a simple video and it has flaws but its message is clear enough, thanks.

Chip: Welcome to my small world, most do not understand the importance of having taken action to liberate Kuwait. But one reason for my blog!
