Throughout history, all the great empires, civilizations, and countries have had their downfall.. In Rome, when they were successful, everyone thought that Rome would never fall down, then it went down. During the time of the Conquistadors, Spain was #1, then again their downfall, then came the golden age of England, again even they fell, now it is America.. How long before the fall comes or for people like russ, do you think it will come? Throughout history, (most of the time) when the big countries mess with the little ones, they lose in the end, hitler invaded belgium, yes he did demolish them, but in the end it caused his downfall, when the rest of the world banded together.. Spain, a powerful navy and all, they send a giant armada against the small island called England, the English band together and defeat mighty Spain with little resources... THe British, so powerful, messed with the colonies, the farmers banded together and gave them a hit on the backside... What does this tell you?
