[OP-ED]: Amid Trump’s chaos, a post-American world emerges

 08/01/2017 - 09:10
In 2008, I wrote a book about the emerging “Post-American World,” which was, I noted at the start, not about the decline of America but rather the rise of the rest. Amid the parochialism, ineptitude and sheer disarray of the Trump presidency, the post-American world is coming to fruition much faster than I ever expected.

 In London last week, I met a Nigerian man who succinctly expressed the reaction of much of the world to America these days. “Your country has gone crazy,” he said, with a mixture of outrage and amusement. “I’m from Africa. I know crazy, but I didn’t ever think I would see this in America!”

[OP-ED]: Surge un mundo Post-Americano en medio del caos de Trump

En el 2008 escribí un libro sobre el “Mundo Post-Americano” emergente el cual trataba, me di cuenta desde el comienzo, no sobre el declive de Estados Unidos sino sobre el levantamiento del resto. En medio del campanilismo, la ineptitud y desorden puro de la presidencia de Trump, el mundo Post-Americano está llegando a buen término mucho más rápido de lo que jamás imaginé.

La semana pasada conocí en Londres a un hombre nigeriano quien expresó brevemente la reacción de la mayor parte del mundo frente a Estados Unidos estos días. “Tu país se ha vuelto loco”, dijo, con una mezcla de indignación y diversión. “Soy de África. Conozco la locura pero nunca llegué a pensar que vería esto ¡en Estados Unidos!”

An anti-Muslim attack in a London mosque on Saturday was followed by a frustrated terrorist attack on Monday in Paris, where an armed man identified as an Islamic extremist was killed after he rammed a card loaded with weapons and explosives in to a police convoy. Increasing Islamist terror and hate crime against Muslims at the same time...  is this exactly what ISIS want?
