Victor Davis Hanson on the left’s risible contention that the U.S. has now become an empire:

Rome found its limits when it butted up against Germany and Parthia. The Ottomans never could bully too well the Venetians or the Spanish. Britain worried about France and Spain at sea and the Germanic peoples by land.

We, not them, stop us from becoming what we could.
