Maybe the United States should learn from Britain “to decline gracefully,” Professor Meghnad Desai, an Indian-born member of the British House of Lords, said in his recent article, “America, Enjoy the Downward Slide.”
Americans have said similar things before. However, American leaders are obsessed with “building a peaceful world under the U.S. rule.” Although it is “forced to contract its forces,” the United States is still busy launching “color revolutions” and promoting “neo-interventionism” around the world.
The United States may still be a superpower, but its influence has declined markedly.
The American continents are the backyard of the United States. The country used to have the final say on who would serve as the secretary general of the Organization of American States, but the organization has repeatedly rejected candidates recommended by the United States for the post in recent years. In addition, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon attended the recent Non-Aligned Movement summit in Tehran, Iran despite opposition from the United States.
