The theme of "self-destruction of the United States" and the decline of the American Empire continues to migrate from the leaves of Russian and Chinese publications in the headlines of American analytical materials. Probably the main foreign policy printed an illustrated edition of the expert fraternity, a respectable Foreign Affairs has decided to dedicate the theme of the sunset of the power of the United States was even a special issue that discusses all aspects of the fall of the Empire. By the way, in this or other form, the term "Empire" and "hegemony" of the US has already used Russian or Chinese propagandists, And the venerable us foreign policy and media experts, which can and should be commended for being honest: especially When the opponent begins to talk to himself imposed on him by language, This means That his defeat is literally close. When the Soviet writers began to write about the Soviet Union As an Empire (and sometimes in a whisper using the meme about Reagan's "evil Empire" ), the big jam of the Union was near, and something Similar is currently happening in the United States, with the important difference That the most rational Authorized the national elite now businesslike and pragmatic hope steps in order to pull from the wreckage of the global Empire as much As possible of the values and tools that will be required for the restoration of the former might in the future.

on the cover of a special issue of Foreign Affairs, which aims to answer the question " What happened to the American century?", bears the symbol of the USA - the bald eagle - with a characteristic purple black eye. That inadvertently forces the reader to think about How He was This black eye got: he was hit with an angry Russian bear? Maybe the eagle is ill? Maybe Orlan drinks heavily and so has an impact on his fragile body?

the response to This question when wanting to locate in the main article room where Fareed Rafiq Zakaria is one of the most significant American political analysts, a researcher of Harvard University, a recognized expert in the field of international relations and the imposition, an outspoken opponent of modern Russia and the ex-editor of Newsweek international, explains That in reality, the American Empire is in fact self-destruct, and is conducting the autopsy of former Imperial grandeur.

The special piquancy to the article eminent expert makes the fact That Zakaria Is, by and large, the symbol in the same sense in which the speaker Levitan was a symbol of the belligerent Soviet Union, And the Lord Gav-Gav (William Brooke Joyce) was a symbol of Nazi Germany. When the United States was going to bomb someone, execute, poison "depleted uranium" and to direct other American-style democracy in the name of "universal values" on si-EN-EN was always possible to see the Fareed Zakaria, who confidently explained That it should be and all America " is a global championship ". Funny thing: the Zachary love the most Pro-American politicians, media people and just xenophyte from the former Soviet Union and its biographical information on the Russian version of Wikipedia "licked" to Shine, because even a section "Criticism" begins with the words: "in General about the works of Fareed Zakaria authoritative publishers, politicians and the General "people" speak well ", and that phrase is very suggestive touch looks in quotes the word " people ".

And here is What He writes himself about the current state of the US: "at Some point over the past 2 years American hegemony has died. The era of US domination was a short, turbulent era, some three decades, marked 2 points, each of which was a kind of collapse. The dominance of the USA was born amid the collapse of the Berlin wall in 1989. The end or the real beginning of the end, was another collapse of Iraq in 2003 and the subsequent slow collapse. But whether the death was an extraordinary status to the United States the result of external causes, or Washington accelerated own its own decline due to bad habits and bad behavior? This issue will be discussed by historians for many years. But At this time we have plenty of time and prospects, to make certain preliminary observations.

As in most deaths, this was due to many factors. In the international system, there were deep structural forces that inexorably worked against any country that has accumulated so much power. In the American case, however, what is striking is How Washington (having an unprecedented position) had misused its own hegemony and abuse of power, losing allies and encouraging our enemies ".

If Fareed Zakaria, who is all right with careers, influence and reputation, whose life is inseparably connected with the chanting of American hegemony, suddenly removes his suit propagandist, picks up a scalpel the pathologist and the public begins to fill in the autopsy report of the notorious hegemony (which He pronounced dead and presumably set the date of death), means, business in the U.S. capital are really bad.

The enumeration of the causes of death of the hegemony looks in its own way logical, although not devoid of typically American cynicism and attempts to give outright predatory behaviour for honest mistakes made under the pressure of emotions. Among those listed in the text of the Foreign Affairs of the causes of death of the hegemony of the United States are:

- the growth of China (which Washington was "missed" ),

- waste from North America's traditional allies from Europe (and Washington is largely to blame),

- catastrophically bad played by "middle Eastern party" in Iraq and Afghanistan - it Zakaria, However, withdraws to fear of terrorism, and stresses That the Europeans and other countries that are experiencing the terrorist threat, looking at the behavior of the United States As to the behavior of " a wounded lion ".

in reality, the American political elite, rather, it would be possible to compare with the " angry tantrum ", however, probably should not require too deep of introspection from experts, who all his life was engaged in chanting the hegemony of their country and the approach Fukuyama the " end of history ".

It seems that all the emotional power of the analyst Foreign Affairs went to respect for the other problem, which is That the dismantling of the "American century" was joined by Russia. But the most surprising thing Zakaria is willing to admit what a Patriotic Russian analysts write and say for many years - the US itself has created this problem: "It's easy to forget now, But in the early 1990s, the leaders of the capital of Russia was determined to transform his country into a liberal democracy, European nation and a kind of ally of the West.
