Is the empire worth it? French, Brits, even Soviets said no. They went home. And nothing over there not oil, not bases in Saudi Arabia, not global hegemony is worth risking nuclear terror over here. I may be the only right-winger in America who loves D.C., but then I grew up here. Washington is my hometown. It comes first, and empire isn’t even a close second.
Strange to be quoting the RIGHT here, but he can see clearly that all this about imperialism. We are in for an new Empire that will take a lot to defeat.
