1min read

The cover story of your May/June issue, on why America won’t go the way of the British Empire, was heartening. I am a new subscriber to your magazine, and this article alone warranted my order. The recent Gulf War proved that the United States is in no way on the decline. Politically, we organized the first effective, worldwide coalition since the Second World War. Economically, we triumphantly pooled and employed the resources of dozens of nations. Militarily, we led a complex, multinational force to an unparalleled and absolute victory. In its heyday, the British Empire could never have dreamed of such accomplishments.

We hope you enjoy our work.
