24. One of the things that has struck me as an engineeer and businessman is
how centrally managed enterprises succumb to more nimble adversaries with far less resources. In that vein, I am going to predict the demise of the American Empire with its emphasis on costly hardware is going to be brought down by newer adversaries with software expertise, just as our mainstream press is feeling the heat from the internet including this site at DU.

From a historic persepective, our times remind me of the rise of Nazi Germany behind the vaunted Panzer Army that struck terror in the hearts of Europeans until Zhukov turned back the tide on the outskirts of Moscow and Chuikov demolished the Sixth Army in Stalingrad.I do believe that our fall will come from an unexpected corner most likely from knowledgeable people with the least resources.
This is why our bloated Defense Mandarins will pay no attention to it and are likely to be surprised that they exist at all, much less pose a threat to them.

And I agree with your statement that Empires fall, always.This one is going to be no different.
