The thing I'm confused about is pretty simple. The author is quite blatantly rewriting some facts to suit his purposes. That phenominon is not uncommon and can be quite effective so long as your readers are ignorant or do not have the facts available to them.

The fact that the author GREATLY underestimates the USA, and overestimates its dependence on the Gulf of Mexico though ... What purpose is served by promoting the underestimation of your chosen enemy?? Underestimating an opponent never leads to anything good ... unless your all talk and never intend to take the fight to them to begin with.

The Superalliance of India, China, Russia and Brazil could certainly make a good run at toppling the USA but the assumption that we collapse in 6 months?? That would be highly unlikely even if the USA was taking on the rest of the world -- we'd definitely lose but not in 6 months. Also, the Superalliace would have to focus on eliminating the USA's allies -- Japan, Europe, Phillipines, Australia, South Korea, Israel, Pakistan + Bangladesh(because of India's involvement), etc. No matter how strong they are, they wouldn't want to leave any dangerous enemies at their backs. An amphibious assault accross the Pacific Ocean is a horribly daunting task -- there's no islands of sufficient size off the USA's West Coast from which to launch the attack. Brazil would be lost before the rest can offer any help.

Essentially, we're talking about a really messy scenario. The author of this article assumes that the USA is people by paper dolls that crumble effortlessly. They should know better than that. Its some VERY wishful thinking.

True to a degree. Still, wishing for the USA to be weak does not make use weak.

I try to keep an open mind and not to limit myself by thinking: "I've got it all figured out and this is what I'm gonna stick to for dear life..." And I try to refrain from making statements of this sort: "It's obviously false..." without laying out evidence or proof.
As do I. I know my own country and I know a good bit about many others. History proves that the world can surprise you. The USA has made it a point of foreign policy to be ready for any surprises that come our way, usually stopping them before they start. Overconfidence is our weakness.

A good imagination is a wonderful way to pass spare time. You can imagine almost anything by reading fiction, non-fiction, and even comic books but that doesn't make the themes possible. Evidence of a mature sense of reality is not becoming a fall guy for every hustler that comes along and tries to convince you that he alone knows the true meaning of life and all he needs is a few stooges to back him. True life is not a game. Games have set rules, life changes every day we awaken.

I believe the Duke, John Wayne, summed it all up in one of his movies. " Life is tough, it's tougher when you're stupid".

How can you have a US flag on you and not know that the US has been in existence for 228 years now?
Ehr !

You are confusing 1776 Independance, with actual Funtional (Direct)Demeocratic system that came years later.

IE

Bill of Rights
Equal Treatment !,
etc !

As a note it was not until early 1900 that case law shows Direct Democracy in the US, The first United States Supreme Court ruling in favor of the citizen lawmaking was in Pacific States Telephone and Telegraph Company v. Oregon, 223 U.S. 118 -- in 1912
Well if you ask for a TRUE Democracy then it has not happaned yet. I because I was not born in the states cannot become the Pres., what kind of equality is that? and then if yuo back it up to the democratic principal then it has lasted way longer in the greek states BCE

Sorry, but this is like asking a blind man to describe the color purple, asking for an educated response on something with little to no intellectualy credibility is a lot to ask for, not to be mean but if you want an educated resonse you need to talk to a learned KKK member, neo-Nazi, or Muslim Male Extremist between the age of 17 and 45, (I know, Bin Laden is not really a Muslim and that term is a contridiction in itself.) if you can find one.

Also, is it just me or did this guy make it sound like all this was already happening? His own words are "This multinational coalition has already made things harder on me." which to me suggests that they are already acting out their plan. And the one major problem with this, and pretty much all other conspiracy theorists like this, is that it assumes that the US would not fight back and just let these nations attack us.

And how do they plan on stopping passage of American ships through the Gulf of Mexico? Because like the Med. with the Romans that is pretty much our own private little lake that we allow our neighbors to use. Nobody else on the Gulf has a navy that could even compare to our fleet of ships on the Great Lakes.
