The USA is now the only superpower in the world.
What is happening in The USA in 2005CE
The 1960’s and 70’s saw the assassination of President Kennedy (1963), the Civil Rights movement and the assassination of Martin Luther King (1968), the Vietnam War (1965-73), the sending of a man to the moon (1969 – one of the most astonishing feats in world history), and the Watergate Scandal (1974).
In the 1980’s, President Ronald Reagan escalated the arms race with the Soviet Union, which led directly to the fall of the Soviet Union and the end of the Cold War. The US was left as the world’s only superpower. Since the attacks on the Twin Towers in New York on September 11th 2001, the US has had to realign its foreign policy and defensive stance to meet new threats. As a result, she has found herself at war in distant Afghanistan and Iraq.
