Specter of Ruin of Roman Empire Haunts US—DPR (North) Korean news agency said

A few days ago The Washington Post ran a story about an editorial in response to a speech US President Barack Obama gave at a university in Australia. The Post reported the president was at;

"University of Queensland in Australia when he began to talk about the present day's place in history.

"I often tell young people in America 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 U.S. military would need to reform to keep this place in history."

The article then goes on to mention an editorial in Democratic People's Republic of (North) Korea 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 US 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 will fall as quickly as this editorial said it will. And yet I find comfort in the fact that an entire government opposes this system as much as I do.

From Korean Central News Agency (of the DPRK):

Pyongyang, November 25 (KCNA) -- U.S. President Obama making a speech at a university in Australia recently said it is the best time to live in history but there are so many threats to the present world order that those disputes have to be settled in a peaceful manner.
Secretary of Defense Hagel at a meeting of those concerned of the military in California said there is no guarantee that the U.S. military and technological advantages that became the basis of the international security order in the last century would automatically last in the 21st century, too.
This is a poor shriek of those facing ruin.
This is recognition of the dark reality in the U.S. as it is a reflection of extreme uneasiness and horror-phobia.
The U.S. is now thrown into confusion as its uni-polar domination system called world order is getting out of control.
Its military muscle and dollar's position that have propped Washington's moves for world domination are now sinking rapidly.
The DPRK's access to nukes and its measures for bolstering them qualitatively and quantitatively have become a nightmare-like blow to the U.S. keen to carry out its strategy for world domination.
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.
The U.S. excessive issue of dollars for the settlement of the issues of huge military expenditure and financial deficit is resulting in the steady devaluation of the U.S. dollar.
This suicidal act and wide-ranging use of national and regional currencies in various countries and regions are shaking down to the roots the present international financial system with U.S. dollar as a main currency.
To top it all, the U.S. hegemonic moves have been snubbed even by its allies, to say nothing of the international community.
The U.S. is, therefore, driven to its wit's end unable to handle Ukrainian crisis and other major international issues at will.
As a ruining house has often fights, the U.S. is locked in fierce bickering over such complicated issues as military budget.
The U.S. has now the hardest time in its history.
Yet, it has gone so foolish as to cover up its predicament through such talk as the "best time to live" and "peaceful settlement". This reminds one of the old Roman empire that was buried in history after facing a ruin for coveting for prosperity through aggression and wars.
The poor fate of the U.S. reminiscent of the ruin of the Roman empire is a due outcome of its history of aggression and arbitrary practices.
