Indus river valley
Rise of a empire
They where much more simpler than most empires at the time. There cites were smaller and they didn't worried about power as much as the Egyptians Persians etc. They didn't have much of a army or even many weapons as they were only used to kill animals. Without having many weapons the Aryans invaded. Unlike the people that lived in the Indus river valley they left writings.
Why they failed
They were not a society that ran off of power. They didn't have many weapons or even a army. When the Aryans charged in on there horses and advanced weapons they were able to take it over very easily.
What can the US learn from this society
There where many theories on how they failed. Some include the lose of trading. Others say the environment flooded them out too. Basically they couldn't trade and became poor. What the US could do to not let this happen is to not relay on other countries for goods, foods, etc.

Aryans symbol the swastika.
This symbol is a swastika meaning prosperity. It may look familiar as you might know as a symbol for the Nazis. Hitler changed the angle of it and used it as his own.
