Sexy Chinese Nurse

There's an understanding unspoken, that the West is dying. That the BRIC countries: Brazil, Russia, India and China are emerging to take it's place in the sun.

The now senile United States, reaches out its boney fingers to the Pacific Rim, the Chinese nurse says "No, no Uncle Sam, it's time to take you medication." She gently removes his hand from her skirt and wheels us back into history.

The kids don't visit anymore. They spent all their time with their friends in cyberspace. With their long usernames and hip talk, always rebelling against their old man.

"That's the old way Dad, people don't think that way anymore."

They'll see, when they get responsibilities, they'll fall in line, do things the way I did it. That's just the way of the world.

But what if I'm wrong? What the West were wrong? Would hate the be forgotten, judged a failure by posterity. The history books we wrote these kids don't read. They read Zinn. They listen to Jon Stewart. They follow Muslims on Twitter. They live simply, refusing to buy bigger and better.

They have forgotten all the blood we spilled was for them. All the villages we've burned, all the icons we've killed, all the governments we've toppled was for them. How can they trust these muddy races? After all we've done. Surely they'll seek revenge. That's what we would do.
