The United States has Special Forces stationed in 134 countries around the world.
The Roman Empire at its height did not have its troops in so many countries. Germany and Japan together during the Second World War did not occupy 134 nations. Neither did the British Empire when it controlled a fourth of the planet. Nor did Russia at its maximum expansion.
The supposed threats to our national security, North Korea, Syria and Iran, do not occupy other nations.
Who is spying on the world? If your phones are being tapped or your emails tracked in all likelihood it is the NSA and not any agency of any other foreign government.
It is a painful conclusion for Americans but the American Empire IS the rogue nation we fear.
