He's right, but he's basing his whole thesis on the incorrect understanding that the U.S. is still a sovereign nation with national interests.

The U.S. is now a global empire, which means the whole idea of "national interests" is just so silly and antiquated.

The good news is that nobody is going to be drafted to fight for the U.S. in these stupid military campaigns, so for most Americans it will get played out mostly on television and in a continuing U.S. slide into bankruptcy.

Oh, if they feel the need they’ll bring back the draft in a New York minute. Why do you think that males 18-26 have to register for Selective Service? I was a member of a draft board during the Bush 41 era. They’re in every village and hamlet, every city, state and territory. They can be activated at a moments notice.

Too bad we can’t figure out how to make being a global empire pay.
Or maybe we’re NOT a global empire?
