The United States has pursued empire since early in its history, but it was the Soviet collapse in 1991 that enabled Washington to see the entire world as its oyster.

The collapse of the Soviet Union resulted in the rise of the neoconservatives to power and influence in the US government. The neoconservatives have interpreted the Soviet collapse as History’s choice of “American democratic capitalism” as the New World Order.

Chosen by History as the exceptional and indispensable country, Washington claims the right and the responsibility to impose its hegemony on the world. Neoconservatives regard their agenda to be too important to be constrained by domestic and international law or by the interests of other countries. Indeed, as the Unipower, Washington is required by the neoconservative doctrine to prevent the rise of other countries that could constrain American power.

Paul Wolfowitz, a leading neoconservative, penned the Wolfowitz Doctrine shortly after the Soviet collapse. This doctrine is the basis of US foreign and military policy.
The doctrine states:


  1. The insecurities of the US gov. Russia and China are for the most part organized
    superpowers, a threat to you know who. Right now we have the blame-game;
    everything is Russia or China's fault. Indoctrination like WWII. We good - you bad.

    1. everything is Russia or China's fault.

      Ha! Reminds me of my nephew's comment on the BBC request when he stated that everything that is wrong in the US is blamed either on the Confederate flag or guns. :) Bought' right.

  2. Good one and well said.
