USA became powerful only thanks to WWII. Just before, the country was crippled with debts, the inflation and the unemployment were rising, etc.
Now, it's been 60 years and USA are already going down. Their overwhelming debt cannot be paid, they're depending of Asia's investments, they cannot do better than countries who don't have all their lands and natural ressources (Lol, Japan). Lots of unemployment is on the way, nobody respects them anymore, the health system is a total failure, Iraq's war either, etc, etc, etc...
I'm talking in engrish so I cannot really explain my point correctly but I guess it's fine anyway.
It's not /a/ material after all
