The Face of Imperial Overstretch

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Today, the U.S. maintains a policy of containment of Russia and China, which are more united than they have been since the first days of the Cold War. We are responsible for defending 28 NATO nations in Europe, twice as many as during the Cold War, plus Japan, South Korea, the Philippines, Australia and New Zealand. We have troops in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan, and appear on the cusp of collisions with Venezuela and Iran. This is imperial overstretch. It is unsustainable.
