how to defeat USA?

at last, i have found the solution to one of my favorite riddles.

I feel, to defeat America, all is needed is just one person. And you are wrong, it is not Amma. Te award goes to narendra modi.

this power hungry political machine has the unique ability to talk gibberish, carry a section of people along with him, bring out all his political opponents, and still be able to hold on to his seat. Incredible!!!

If Narendra Modi is elected, then he will be having the hard core backing of religious fundamentalists in USA, the sort of people who dont know what religion tells them to do, but can reproduce any half of the religious text, as if they are stored on some computer's hard disk. And then there will be a string of innocent listeners, who happen to believe his words, without knowing what will happen when they elect him. Among people running for the current election, just look at the ratings of the students of narendra modi to understand what i mean.

This guy knows that you dont need sound economic or social or political plans to run for president. all is needed is the right numbers at the right places. Thats an art, the neocons already have mastered.

Then the next president should be able to do what Bush failed to do. Commit suicide and still try committing it again and again. One attempt, i think people can escape from. But many attempts one after the other, i think is hard to beat.

In short, make sure somebody as insane as bush gets elected, and sit back and relax. USA fill fall. And it will fall very badly.

Well, not that easy.
Bush is not a dumb person, really - that's the way the system works.

There're lots of harsh things president faces and deals with - one choice here is to fight, but this leads to Kennedy-like endgame, the other is to mimic the unaware "vast majority".

Anyway - the political, financial and military power of USA will not decline by itself.

It shall cascade outwards badly, disintegrating/disrupting most of international economic/social webs currently operating.

So, you should better think splash damage and unintended consequences, not the personalities - system has its own rules and momentum.

That is, an isolated person has negligible (that is, none) chances to alter the way system evolves - no matter how dumb/destructive he/she is.

well, the current economic situation and the spat between democrats and republicans have vindicated my stand.

US need not be defeated. All big nations fall on their own accord. Remember, Greece fell, Rome fell, Egypt fell, the great Mongol empire fell,... (the list goes on and on)
