    John le Carre described the Soviet Union just prior to its collapse. The U.S. is on a similar trajectory.

    Being a regional hegemon is considerably less expensive, more cost effective and geographically more feasible than maintaining global superpower status. Russia and China are not Afghanistan and Iraq. They are calling our bluff. Think Gulliver among the Lilliputians.
