I have to agree with points #4 & #5., especially:
They are characterized by poor governance, unstable governments, big income disparities, overspending on the military but underspending on infrastructure, significant natural resources, and an economy split between a dynamic, globalized minority and a stagnant, poor majority.
While our government isn't unstable yet, everything else is ticked off nicely. If all this doesn't change, and change significantly and quickly, nobody is going to be wanting to burn our flag anymore—it will be someone else's turn in the barrel. Can't say that would break my heart. I'm more than happy to see how the EU Empire carries the torch.

Where there's smoke, there's mirrors.
