If by the West we mean Western civilization...
We do not, notice how I used "Quotations"? When I talk about the "West" I mean the government-established entity that has been masquerading about
since the Cold War ended in 1991 as being said union of military and political interests. Basically, the brainchild of the Anglo-American Power Axis.
Now, they see it as being obsolete. The developed nations of Earth no longer want anything further to do with the US, the EU in particular, feeling
betrayed by their once-closest ally, the greatest liar of all liars, the greatest swindler of all swindlers, the regional Euroelite want blood. It's
bubbling up, about to inundate, and if they keep trying to force the lid down on this thing via various proxy wars like the Crimean crisis, its gonna
blow its top, and its gonna be bad.

rely off of
each other, they don't even need to rely on us a whole hell of a lot with Russia and China at their back door. According to the stats above, we
And whether we continue to be somewhat civil military allies, in spite of the disgusting lengths our idiotic administration has gone to SPYING
on GERMAN CHANCELLOR
Merkel and FRENCH PRESIDENT
Holland (the two economic heavyweights behind the EU are France and Germany, in
that order) relies on how good the Russian and Chinese economies look a few months from now, because if we go to war with Russia, we're gonna cut off
our own nose to spite our face.
And our only real allies will from thereon be Israel and the UK's offshore buddies. The EU may not be a significant rival to the US and the UK as

, but with Chinese
and Russian governments
helping them (who both currently are
rivals), they are well on their way indeed.
And, last but not least, if you think China and Russia aren't going to milk the PRISM scandal for what it's worth (connect the dots, WHY do you think
the Ukrainian coup occurred? To benefit the US? LOL) then you are just being flat naive.
