The USA is the sole Empire (in the true sense) left. The formal democratic structures hardly cover the fact that a small number of people (maybe 100 to 150) are in the end deciding about the US politics and thus about large parts of this world, rightfully called the „US Power Elite“, though there are some fierce divisions among them about strategic issues (http://tinyurl.com/bne6lnr). Whatever happens in this world that doesn´t please the US Power Elite the power apparatus flexes its musles and international law and the souverainity of other states are trampled under foot. Even Russia at certain points is afraid of the unscrupulous giant, as Putin´s words on the occasion of Snowden´s asylum have impressingly shown: http://tinyurl.com/oqsrlaw. There´s only one country in this world which appears to have no fear at all for the giant´s reactions though financially highly dependend on him: as shown again just on the new Gaza Massacre: Israel!
