A few years ago, the term “World Order” was something I didn’t hear much about on any major news media except on neo conservativism websites or in arcane foreign affair articles.
Nowadays, American politicians and military personnel openly talked about it all the time because they are tired of denying its existence.
More importantly, they are scared because they may see it disintegrating right in front of their eyes. The “World Order” is extremely important to the U.S. and the American’s way of life, i.e., living beyond their means, depends on it.
Considering the reserve currency status of the U.S. dollar which allows the U.S. continuously runs huge deficits on foreign trades and federal budget. If the U.S. has to buy another currency to pay for everything they import, e.g., crude oil, U.S. dollar will lose its value like a rock falling off a cliff. American will lose its purchasing power and they will forever live in a poor house simply because it can not afford the huge national debt it owes to foreign credictors.
That’s why America has to defend the “World Order.”
When people in America’s conservative circle talk about “World Order,” they are not talking about peace in the Middle East because no one in the upper echelon of the U.S. government will lose any sleep if a few people die in the middle of the desert. If the supply of Middle East oil is in jeopardy, America has at least 100 days worth of foreign oil import stored in the strategy petroleum reserve in Louisiana. In addition, America’s aircraft carrier is nearby if a quick and precise military action is called for.
When people in America’s conservative circle talk about “World Order,” they are not talking about the safety of Israel because Israel can take care of itself using missiles and defensive system they bought or received as gifts from the U.S. over the past 30 years.
When people in America’s conservative circle talk about “World Order,” they are not talking about keeping Iran’s nuclear weapons in check because those missiles along with their launching facilities are aimed at Israel, not at the U.S. Besides, Israel took care of the nuclear facility in the past and it certainly has the capability to take care of them now. And Israel doesn’t need America’s permission either.
Feminine in Africa? Not America’s problem.
Missile tests by North Korea? They may be a threat to South Korea but it gives America a perfect excuse to station U.S. soldiers in South Korea.
Monetary crisis in South America countries? Doesn’t care. The worse situation these countries are in, the less of a threat they are to the U.S.
As for Europe, the financial crisis, which originated in the U.S., sank the European countries in a shit hole so deep that they have little hope of crawling out from for decades.
Then there are China and Putin’s Russia. Soviet Union was thoroughly humiliated by the U.S. in the late 1980’s. Now Russia has come back from the dead under Putin’s reign. It is threatening American’s dominance in Europe after it annexed Crimea.
China is a clear and present danger to America’s hegemony. Although, China is no where close to challenge America’s leadership position and China is still mired in many internal problems, what China is doing, e.g., One Belt One Road, can not be tolerated by the U.S.
What’s even more troublesome to America’s policy makers is the Russia-China alliance which has the potential to topple America’s dominance in the world. It is a matter of national security to America with deadly consequence.
But, giving America’s huge national debt, unstoppable federal deficits and a rapidly aging population, America’s decline is inevitable and a new empire is emerging no matter how many aircraft carriers America has.
It is just a matter of time.
