The president of the Council of Foreign Relations Richard N. Haass, the premier US advisory body on foreign policy, has twittered that the January 6 events are a clear sign of the beginning of the end of the US empire.
Thanks, mr. Haass. We already knew that the Empire was walking on its last legs, but it is nice to hear that from your mouth, since the CFR was one of the most important drivers behind that empire, a.k.a. The West.
In hindsight, Donald Trump will be seen as the equivalent of Mikhail Gorbachev (although the characters couldn’t be more different), namely of the involuntary undertakers of their respective empires.
