No matter what good the United States does, it cannot be seen as good — because the United States is nominally a capitalist nation and it therefore the great enemy of leftists everywhere.
Mr Assad is still there, with Russian backing that has allowed Vladimir Putin to impose his power on the region.
The US is a superpower by invitation: China is moving towards an economy and a type of trade in which there is no place for the foreign manufacturer, the foreign banker, or the foreign trader. Russia and China have not yet pushed the US out of the global arena, and Washington is able to realize the goal of return for leadership, as defined in the US National Security Strategy Document of December While this may not seem like much, this simple glue between the three countries has allowed for Assad to continue in Syria, Kim Jong Un to continue in North Korea, and for Crimea to become part of Russia.

Aug 07, · "Pax Americana" commonly refers to the decades of relative peace experienced amongst the world's most powerful nations after World War II.
This peace is often attributed to the United States' stability, economic strength, and preponderance of power - and, arguably, its position as a moral center, dedicated to preserving freedom, democracy, human rights, and the rule of law through.
