Mr. Pipes, America and her Western allies needs to look within themselves and try to connect with the fast especially the ancient super powers and what brought about their systematic downfall. Its disturbing to ignore this fact. America with its might can now use moral force to conquer rather than use of deception, connivance and chaos. I have this simple advice for them from antiquity which has never been disprove.

"Seize power and try to manipulate people, you will not succeed. People have their own way and cannot be manipulated. What you attempt to seize, you destroy; what you attempt to grab, you lose".

LAO TZU.

Thank you Mr. Pipes.
