The First American Emperor

George W.Bush, the first American Emperor?

Am I alone in seeing the first real signs of 'Empire' consciousness from The United States? Ironically, the USA came about as a violent rejection of imperialism but today, like it or not, it's following the very best traditions of the Roman Empire. The Caesars had problems with the Germans and the Gauls as well but then, as now Judea, the middle east and religious fundamentalism was as much of a problem to Rome as it is to America today.

Interesting how history repeats itself but then George Bush is hardly Russell Crowe but then, with the world's largest arsenal of weapons of mass destruction, who needs to be?
