The twentieth century was the American Century. The United States defeated Nazi Germany, Italian fascism and Russian Communism and emerged as the leading power at the end of the century. This was because of leadership that understood the nature of the enemy and defeated it. In the new century the leadership of the United States is unable or unwilling to understand the nature of the threats to western civilization. This may have a tragic outcome for the free world.
