    I think he's saying you're a hack satirist.

    Which I agree with.

    Anyhow, I hope the federal government of the US falls apart soon. I'd be glad to have a hand in it. Maybe then "America" can start being America again. In any case, fuck the Empire.

For the most part, imperialistic regimes that were once responsible for the decline of the past empires such as barbarian tribes, no longer exist. Due to this a country can not "fall" as you describe it, just become very weak.
    Okay. What happens when the US dollar is worth pennies on the dollar and you can't afford an army any more. How many enemies do you got?

    Most empires fell because of finance. They could not finance expansion or finance defense. The countries literally went bankrupt. Due to rising inflation in stable economies.

    Yeah, the Lithuanian "empire" thing was actually Christian, not Pagan. They converted prior to expansion. A big shame, really... but what are ya gonna do?

    Nuclear powers don't readily invade each other. You know that whole cold war thing, it kind of showed that.

    This thread smells like Pravda.ru
    Capitol and Capitalism will allow the US to expand and not fall. There is to much foreign investment for it to fail. Reform, change, split up maybe but not fail like the Romans.

    Romens couldn't control all the land they own, the US allows the freemarket to do that for them, it's a stand alone complex working all in the same direction, prosperity.

    Why the US could Fall= Greedy Politcians and Progressives

    Why the World will Burn= The Same + Islamic Extremists + US Falling

    I see what you were trying to do there, but it failed due to abismal grammar and inaccurate statements.
