If this doesn't scare the heck out of you about Hussein then you are just plain ignorant. Research what the book is before you post, otherwise your post is crap:

Fareed Zakaria
The Post-American World

One of our most distinguished thinkers argues that the "rise of the rest" is the great story of our time.
"This is not a book about the decline of America, but rather about the rise of everyone else." So begins Fareed Zakaria's important new work on the era we are now entering. Following on the success of his best-selling The Future of Freedom, Zakaria describes with equal prescience a world in which the United States will no longer dominate the global economy, orchestrate geopolitics, or overwhelm cultures. He sees the "rise of the rest"-the growth of countries like China, India, Brazil, Russia, and many others-as the great story of our time, and one that will reshape the world. The tallest buildings, biggest dams, largest-selling movies, and most advanced cell phones are all being built outside the United States. This economic growth is producing political confidence, national pride, and potentially international problems. How should the United States understand and thrive in this rapidly changing international climate? What does it mean to live in a truly global era? Zakaria answers these questions with his customary lucidity, insight, and imagination.
There is some truth in it. Many of todays newest technologies are built outside of the US. With Obama as president and his belief that we need to raise taxes on corporate america, he will push even more overseas. Not just the production of those goods, but the jobs as well will be lost.

Never had a chance to read the book, but the quote tells the story everyone rising and one staying the same. Sounds to me like the old factory worker who trains all the young kids, teaches his secrets & brings them along until they rise to his level and are 25 years younger.............................Wait a minute thats my life story

Said it before,the only fix is close our borders and when we fix it keep them closed. We could then see how these countries do with out the USA to sell there goods in. Keep our food, use our resourses and tap our workforce. They my still rise, but it will be alot harder without freebies and someone to fight there wars
