Are We Moving to a New World Order? Is Pax Americana Dead?

This is why it’s important to understand and to take into account that what’s coming is not the end of the world, rather the end of America which will bring down the Western-dominated world.

 

World-historical changes are not conveniently demarcated by the turn of the centuries, but the 21st century looks like the opening of a new “paradigm” that might replace what has been called “The Modern Era” itself.

The U.S. obviously wanted an agreement more than Iran did.

Old Testament prophecies, for example, spring to life when we understand that the term Israel is referring to modern-day America and the British Commonwealth.
