But the way he talks, it seems more like the US will keep leading the NWO, with other countries following, than a "UN x USA" scenario. That's why I find so hard to believe in a coming civil war or fall of the American empire.
I believe Thomas Barnett holds the key on that one.
Firstly, the U.S population must be brought to heel. They will do this through the collapse of the U.S economy and the instigation of a Police State to restore order.
With a collapsed economy they will instigate Hillary and the U.N with "Multipass's" that serve as I.D plus credit card.
To eat and go to school many will join up the services and will provide the manpower for "Imperial Mobilization".
And so it goes...
Hillary = U.N.
