It was odd how Trump just backed out of Syria to please the Turks and to avoid raising tensions with Russia. Ukraine has already gone better than the Americans could have possibly hoped for given that it has exposed the utter incompetence and surprising weakness of Russia (lol hypercock missiles that can't hit shit). I mean who would have thought that the Russian military would be this impotent? The only interests that the Americans had in Africa were related to oil, and the Seven Sisters haven't gone anywhere. South America being more heavily invested in by Chinese interests has not had any effect that runs contrary to the interests of capital, so meh. Hell, the Chinese are just as invested in the United States as they are in South America.
That's one of the central things that anti-imperialist turd-worldists misunderstand about the "American Empire"–The United States is a barracks, a place where the global bourgeoisie keeps its soldiers. It is not some feudal lord sitting upon a golden throne collecting taxes from the world. The United States is an instrument that keeps capital flowing. Thus, when the supposed "empire" falls, it will be as a symptom of capital failing.
