By:Pat Buchanan | August 11, 2017

"When a man knows he is to be hanged in a fortnight," Samuel Johnson observed, "it concentrates his mind wonderfully."

And the prospect of a future where Kim Jong Un can put a nuclear weapon on a U.S. city is going to cause this nation to reassess the risks and rewards of the American Imperium.

First, some history.

"Why should Americans be first to die in any second Korean war?" this writer asked in 1999 in A Republic, Not an Empire.

"With twice the population of the North and twenty times its economic power, South Korea . . . is capable of manning its own defense. American troops on the DMZ should be replaced by South Koreans."

This was denounced as neo-isolationism. And, in 2002, George W. Bush declared the U.S. "will not permit the world's most dangerous regimes to threaten us with the world's most destructive weapons."   :snip: https://www.chroniclesmagazine.org/is-the-american-empire-worth-the-price/

What Pat and his ilk don't seem to be able to get their heads around is Some nation is going to be the dominate power in the world. I believe it should be America. I wonder who Pat thinks it should be?
