can and should US attempt to assume global leadership as the sole remainng super power or is this merly going to be persived as America in her quest for global hegemony
There are two questions here. 1) Can the US attempt etc. The simple answer is yes it can. 2) Should the US attempt etc. is a strictly political answer. I suggest that the answer to this question is based in history. Look at the attempts by other powers ( Germany in WWII, Ancient Rome, Greece, etc.) and see what the ultimate result was. In whose political interest is it that US make this attempt? What are the economic advantages of holding this position? All these question need to be asked. In addition, there is a small moral question of right and wrong!
