America—A Third World Nation

I’ve been busy lately, unfortunately, with nary a moment to do anything but write my antiwar.com column, but not too busy to at least note what’s been going on here at my favorite web site. Great stuff, as usual, yet I couldn’t help noticing this comment from Senor Roach:

“Nuclear proliferation to the Third World in general is a problem because such countries are less likely to keep a tight hold on their nukes, rocked as they are by periodic coups, a culture of endemic bribery, and infighting among personnel more loyal to their religion or tribe than they are to their state.”

I leave out Roach’s links, and insert my own—which just goes to show that America is indeed becoming a Third World nation, albeit not in the way most paleos would have it.
