The basis of a stable peace would be that these policing powers be SHARED. And that they be carried-out within the United Nations. It is unfair to place so much burden on the US. China (and others) should lessen the US burden.
Without World Government we are DOOMED.

Ideally there should be several sheriffs. A single sheriff will fall victim to his own prejudices and subjective judgements. However, who might be Uncle Sam's partner in policing the world? The two most likely candidates were the former Soviet Union and China, now Russia and China. How much trust do these two rogues deserve? Remember, China made common cause with the U.S. sheriff in Afghanistan in ousting the Soviets, and again in Angola where it supported the UNITA terrorists in order to weaken the Soviets' influence there.

So perhaps the world police should be run by smaller, neutral and nonaligned countries. Never by big powers.

The USA can hardly function as a country, how can the USA masquerade as an empire?

What about the Chinese empire? How many years has it functioned properly???

No.  Absolutely not.  Especially now.  There can be no trust in Trump to do the right thing.



Wasn't it you who supported the Obama administration's plan of sending military forces to Nigeria to quell a local conflict???

Meanwhile Nigeria is falling apart, in the south the people want their Biafra back and in the northeast they want to split from the Nigerian state too.

corrupt USA will be never the Global Sheriff

Read the original post and rub your ratty eyes! The U.S.A. has been the world's sheriff for decades. It's not something it is planning to become as the Chinese plan to go to the Moon.
