Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Once the base for the empire is gone, even a small war can tip it. The Sardaukars are still milling around and the long shadows of former wars are enough to keep the empire going until they loose.

The base of the US empire is clearly economic and if it is gone, the Irag war might be all that is needed to finish it. Iraq becomes to the US empire what Afghanistan was to the Soviet empire.
