Yes, and Rome was overrun by the Germans who were running for the huns. However, the US is doing well to create more and more wars to wear it down. While no single country might be able to defeat them in any forseeable future, eventually the US will topple under the combined and prolonged war industry.

All empires eventually fall when the costs to maintain a huge military presence becomes unbearable. We've seen it happen many times, from ancient Persia and Rome to the 3rd Reich and the USSR. Some decay faster than others, but all do. The USA is just the next in line. It may take a few centuries but eventually they will fade into oblivion until a renaissance shakes them up and the cycle continues.
