But that has nothing to do with the Fall of Rome...infact the Roman Army had nothing to do with the Fall of Rome...Rome got to big, and despite a plea by the Emporar to unite in Faith...it wasnt enough, and the Empire Fragmented into two...one was Rome, one was known as Byzantine...for a while not even did they have separate Emporars...but even separate Popes!I dont think America will crumble because of this. I think she might end up not being a super power by the end of the next decade, or at least not the only one...but I dont see this being her destruction.
Sorry Dave but oyu will not find a single historian other than Catholics or Italians who will agre with you here. In fact the expert who wrote the rise and fall of Western civilization has made that the major belief until recent political correctness surged in the 1990's
