There are many conditions in the US that most people can recognize as weakness. Militarily, financially, politically and socially. Since the inception of the US I don’t think we have had a combination of conditions that made us as weak are we are today. If Russia & China wanted to dominate the earth now would be the time to make a move.
People tend to project their own feelings & beliefs onto other people expecting the other person to be like themselves. This is never the case. People don’t like war so they think that is what everyone else should be like. It’s a false premise.
The world is in constant conflict and someone or group through out history has wanted to take the dominate role. Right now is an opportunity for a world changing event.
