in response to reader comment: That US empire

One can almost hear the glee of anticipation when the Afghanistani collapse was heard around the world, almost as loud as the shouts for joy when the towers were sent plunging almost into the river of the Island known as Manhattan. Americans were shattered; and many still are. No wonder; if there is any consolation left as to why the freest country in the history of mankind was subjected to this indignity of unfettered hatred, let it be known that such hatred is, in and of itself, able to take its own form of vengeance at any time of inconvenience towards those who harbor such hatred for reasons of self-imposed gratification at the cost of others for no known reason beyond the evil that is always evident in such attitudes.
We reiterate what Reader Jeff has proffered: the United States was never an empire. Only in the uneducated envy of those whose history comes from failed empires (such as the several Islamic former states now trying to remain relevant in a world that still does not understand why Islam struggles with not being able to completely replace the Christian message started by the Jewish Savior two thousand years ago); how does tearing down the United States seem to achieve the misinformed idea that toppling America will bring about ummah when America was never meant to take over the world? Where did anyone one ever get the idea (except in some perverted dichotomy of religious misinformation) that America was set to be the dominant world power when it was never written that America would do so? But here's the real memo: Islam is not going to either. Its failure is already written and accomplished.
