I am concerned by the parallels in history regarding domination of the world.
All of these cultures were absolutely decimated and became economically desolate.

The United States is not like any of those older "empires".. In the first place, it's far more powerful than they ever were (making its influence felt much further, in a much shorter span of time), and in the second place the U.S. has a destiny and a purpose entirely different than those of any "Old World" empire..
