Former UN Weapons Inspector Scott Ritter discusses US foreign policy, the decline of US empire, and the shift toward a multipolar world. He considers the Biden administration to be one of the most dangerous in modern times as it has gone back to square one (the post-WWII era), demanding American allies and the world subordinate themselves to Washington. He looks at the rise of Iran, the failed Forever Wars in the Middle East which have destroyed the American economy and military, and considers NATO a joke of an organization no longer capable of fighting a war. The U.S is unable to catch up to China’s economic infrastructure investments and the consequences of continued hegemonic behavior and failed diplomacy could translate into escalation of military conflict with Russia or China and ultimately risk the use of nuclear weapons.
