president was at; Australia

he began to talk about the present day's place in history. Australia
"I often tell young people in
that, even with today’s challenges, this is the best time in history to be
alive," the president said. The president's speech
was then followed by one by then-Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, who
explained how the America
military would need to reform to keep this place in history." U.S.
The article then goes on to mention an editorial in Democratic People's Republic of (North)
in rebuttal of his speech. There
is one thing I have condemned throughout Obama's presidency and it is his
continuation of the policy of Korea
imperialism. That is also the main thing I have in common with the DPRK. We
both hate imperialism and long for the day when it dies. The only difference
between me and this editorial is that I am way less optimistic that the empire

the 21st century, too.

At a time when the U.S. was grappling with troubles in the Middle East, styling itself a world gendarme without any ground, many countries put spurs to increasing military capabilities to cope with possible aggression by the world's "only superpower".
Lots of aggression wars waged by the
U.S. in different parts of the world led to huge
military expenditure, plunging the U.S. already saddled with heavy
debts into a bottomless financial and economic crisis.
