Bush started it, And Napoleon Trump will Accelerate it. What’s it? The fall of the American Empire. As we remember 9/11, It’s strangely Ironic that Napoleon Trump is Making America Fall Again (like “W”).

Ayati jan 16 years ago Slavoj Žižek said almost exact same thing, in his book "Welcome to the Desert of the Real." After all these years it's still useful reading.
Of course like any other historical process the decline of the USA began before 9/11 and it's still not over, and open-ended.
US defeats is southeast Asia in early 70's and our own 1979 social explosion were also defining points in this process of decline.
Is decline the same as the end?
Anywho, here's the link for Žižek's book and another related text which is germane to 9/11 and its aftermath.

"Welcome to the Desert of the Real- Five Essays on September 11 and Related Dates"
by Slavoj Žižek
Liberals and conservatives proclaim the end of the American holiday from history. Now the easy games are over; one should take sides. Žižek argues this is precisely the temptation to be resisted. In such moments of apparently clear choices, the real alternatives are most hidden. Welcome to the Desert of the Real steps back, complicating the choices imposed on us. It proposes that global capitalism is fundamentalist and that America was complicit in the rise of Muslim fundamentalism. It points to our dreaming about the catastrophe in numerous disaster movies before it happened, and explores the irony that the tragedy has been used to legitimize torture. Last but not least it analyzes the fiasco of the predominant leftist response to the events.

The Information Bomb
by Paul Virilio
Virilio's exploration of the relationship between technology, war and information technology.
“Civilization or the militarization of science?”
With this typically hyperbolic and provocative question as a starting point, Paul Virilio explores the dominion of techno-science, cyberwar and the new information technologies over our lives . . . and deaths. After the era of the atomic bomb, Virilio posits an era of genetic and information bombs which replace the apocalyptic bang of nuclear death with the whimper of a subliminally reinforced eugenics. We are entering the age of euthanasia.
