Yes, we have moved forward from the days of our extremely violent ancestors. Now a few people (they don't even have to be fit, brave, or smart) can obliterate hundreds of millions with the touch of a button. But I don't think they will get away with it. I think it is the end of the line for weapons and warfare. We have long since passed the point of diminishing returns. As I reminded another correspondent the other day, the "world's only remaining super power" spends twice as much as everyone else on "the most powerful military in history." It spends more than everyone else on the planet (including its own allies) and it has been defeated by a bunch of unorganized guys with a few bags of fertilizer in Afghanistan. The WORSP hasn't done any better in Iraq. It was defeated in Vietnam and Korea. In fact, the last war "the world's only remaining super power" won was The Great Victory of '45.

Everything should have been settled in 1945. The WORSP had taken over the position of world hegemon from the British Empire; it had a continental empire surrounded by a great big moat; it controlled the western hemisphere; it controlled the world's oceans, it controlled the skies, it controlled oil production world-wide; it's Pentagon was set up to control the planet with six unified combat commands; it had a good start on building its world-wide empire of military bases; it had bombed Germany and Japan into the Stone Age; it had control of the U.N. world government in New York City, the world's most important city; it had control of the world's money with Wall Street and the Federal Reserve System; it had the world's most advanced mind control-system with Madison Avenue, Hollywood, universities, radio, TV and publishing telling people what to think; the CIA, FBI and NSA were spying on everyone along with a dozen other intelligence organizations; Big Business was supreme. Everyone believed the WORSP wore a white hat, like Roy Rogers; it had the best weapons and the most militant population; the U.S.S.R. (along with Cuba) was the best enemy that money could buy. The World's Only Remaining Super Power had a plan, it was organized, it had smart people who were highly motivated players in an integrated system of power designed to continue domination that had already lasted almost a thousand years. How could they lose?

Alas, everything kept going from bad to worse right from the beginning. The end was coming despite the Empire's best efforts:

There is an undeniable inverse relationship between the amount the WORSP spends on the military and the return on that investment. Today the WORSP is bankrupt and has been defeated over the years by less and less as it has spent more and more. That cannot be denied. Every advantage in the list above has been lost. The Viking empire that began with William, Duke of Normandy, in 1066 is near collapse. Will it be saved somehow?

Some are worried that forces of evil will enslave what's left after they have killed most of us. I think someone is looking after us and saving us from ourselves. But the devil may not be finished with us. Paul Craig Roberts (and others) think Armageddon is a real possibility:

Crazy people do crazy things when cornered. Firing everyone in Washington (along with the people running the satrapies), taking away their toys, and locking them up, is long past due.
