Is Iran A Scapegoat For A Bankrupt Empire?

But this imperial-military order demands a prodigious infusion of cash — and with the U.S. economy still in free fall, and the federal government borrowing forty cents for every dollar it spends, the foundations are cracking. Since 2000, the national debt has gone from $5.7 trillion to almost $16 trillion today. U.S. policy makers appear to think they can borrow forever and not face any consequences.

This delusion encourages the United States government to make its foreign policy increasingly bellicose and reckless. The American colossus may bestride the world today, but its bank account is empty, its credit cards are maxed out, and its days are numbered.
