Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
You have a valid point. Michel Crozier, in his Le mal américain, made the case that America's decline began with its Vietnam adventure. I should have said that whatever damage Vietnam caused to US hegemony, Bush II's war is much worse.

I am not going to go into the issue of "the break from modernity to post-modernity". In my view, all post-modernity is is the working through of English speaking intellectuals of the fact that the Anglophone world had not actually achieved a feasible realization of modernity.
