‘Pax’ Americana? Really?


Liu Rui | Global Times - TRANSCEND Media Service

US Democrats and Republicans scream about the ‘threat’ of Russia and China. Meanwhile, the US military has weapons pointed at the entire world–and beyond.

Pax Americana [aka joke of the century] is a term applied to the idea of a relative peace in the world after the end of World War II in 1945, when the United States became the world’s dominant economic, cultural, and military power. The opposite happened and that good idea never came to fruition.
