According to Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., the control of American politics by neocons has led to the demise of American global hegemony along with the loss of U.S. moral standing.
"The collapse of U.S. influence over Saudi Arabia and the Kingdom's new alliances with China and Iran are painful emblems of the abject failure of the Neocon strategy of maintaining U.S. global hegemony with aggressive projection of military power," Kennedy posted to Twitter on Monday in addition to a Reuters article about OPEC+ cutting production to increase the price of oil in defiance of the Biden administration.
"China has displaced the American Empire by deftly projecting, instead, economic power," Kennedy went on.
"Over the past decade, our country has spent trillions bombing roads, ports, bridges, and airports. China spent the equivalent building the same across the developing world," he continued.
"The Ukraine war is the final collapse of the Neocon's short-lived 'American Century'," Kennedy commented before concluding, "The Neocon projects in Iraq and Ukraine have cost $8.1 trillion, hollowed out our middle class, made a laughingstock of U.S. military power and moral authority, pushed China and Russia into an invincible alliance, destroyed the dollar as the global currency, cost millions of lives and done nothing to advance democracy or win friendships or influence."
Kennedy's point was further driven home last month when Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador criticized the U.S. State Department for accusing Mexico of "human rights abuses" at a time when the Biden administration is attempting to imprison a former U.S. president and extradite Julian Assange while also sabotaging the Nord Stream pipelines.
While Kennedy was accurate in everything he posted, it appears he was most correct regarding the U.S. having lost its moral authority.
