    5. χεδόν δέκα χρόνια από την αποκάλυψη των τηλεγραφημάτων της αμερικανικής πρεσβείας η Ελλάδα φαίνεται να έχει «πετύχει» όλους τους στόχους της αμερικανικής διπλωματίας: το πανεπιστημιακό άσυλο καταργήθηκε, η πόρτα για την αναγνώριση των αμερικανικών κολεγίων άνοιξε ενώ αστυνομικοί ετοιμάζονται να λάβουν θέσεις μέσα στα εκπαιδευτικά ιδρύματα.

    1. The US military is bigger and more costly than the next ten countries combined. It is patently absurd to think that it is Russia or China, not the US that is setting the world stage militarily.

      Propaganda have is think US is the peace force Russia & China the bullies, while it's the 1 vs 10.

    2. The US is not only an Empire, it is the biggest and most powerful Empire the world has ever seen. It has 800 military bases in more than 70 countries and it bends other countries to its will through sanctions and war. It has interfered to subvert the democratic processes more than 50 times in Latin America alone.

      Why is US a great unchallenged imperial?

    1. This article fails to recognize the societal benefits of free education. Since the US is all about the individual, this isn't surprising. However, the facts - as evidenced by countries where education is essentially free - is that it increases the societal level of education, which improves so many things, not the least of which is more informed and rational voting.
