When I was in school our history books and our teachers told us that the Roman Empire was defeated and fell.
That statement isn't quite true.
The Roman Empire was over extended and was unable to financially or militarily able to contain their hold on the territories that they had conquered and that led to their demise.
And this is what is happening to America today.
We are bankrupt and over extended in the world militarily.
We need to bring our troops home and focus on our own problems and rebuild America and the Hell with the rest of the world.
