An increasing number of nations turn against the U.S. Many take various actions to get rid of the US influence, Pravda.Ru says. The U.S. government has a long history of aggressive military actions against other countries, but it seems there are no plans for the US government to stop.
In a recent article entitled, "The Decline and Fall of the United States" David Swanson pointed out that, "Latin American nations are standing up to the United States. Some have kicked out its bases and ceased sending students to the School of the Americas.

These rapidly growing militant groups in various Middle Eastern countries, such as ISIS and Al-Qaeda, have learned from the Taliban in Afghanistan and the Sunnis and Shiites in Iraq on how to go up against U.S. forces and prevail.
