  •  How can there be hegemony? (none)

    n : the domination of one state over its allies

    The obvious prerequisite being that we HAVE allies, which flies directly in the face of the current unilateral, 'us against the world' foriegn policy.

    •  Allies (none)
      Yes, the USA does have allies who are quite willing to do its bidding, like Australia and England. And the hegemony is strong with dubious "free trade agreements" that force US laws and companies into these societies. The people of these countries may not agree with their governments, but the governments are all about serving America's hegemony.
      •  And these government torture, too (none)
        Why do they think this is good policy?

        What kind of nuts think that torture will, in any long term way, pay off?

        The West is disgracing itself, destroying itself from within by men who research torture, teach torture and then export torture.

        And look, the Uzbekis still turned to Russia and China.

        Dumb shits....
