Deus Ex Machina

"This is the generation of the great LEVIATHAN, or rather, to speak more reverently of that mortal god, to which we own under the immortal God, our peace and defense." -Thomas Hobbes: Leviathan

To what shall I compare thee Pax Americana?

Now that I think about it, what is another phenomenon that looks like this?


I know, i know… this is rather unfair… To some of the Barbarians. Even Genghis Khan managed to establish a huge empire that lasted for decades. The Americans can barely sustain a tiny nation like Iraq beyond a single one.
