14. That is intersting...
The Bible references several empires using an image of a statue.

Rome was described in the book of Daniel 2 as the legs of iron which mixed with clay at the feet. It followed the empires of Greece, Persia and Babylon which were described as being made of bronze, silver and gold. The last empire Rome was stronger then the previous yet as it becomes mixed with clay it is shown to be a divided kingdom. And thus more fragile.

It suggests that the differing people will be no more able to mix than the clay and the iron. And by being unable to form as one the empire is fatally weakened.

It is very similar to the position we find ourselves in.
