The U.S had been economically militraily so therefore politically the most powerful country since 1943. It defeated the almost equally powerful Soviet Union who were intent on the spread of Communism. Granted the U.S suffered defeats in Cuba, Vietnam Iran(hostages) but this never dented the morale of the governments in at the time or of the people enough for them to withdraw into an insular forgien policy. Neither did it damage the US in the eyes of the world,particulay that of the western nations, enough for them to question there links with the US. But today after all the support that had been behind the US after 9-11 there list of true allies with any kind of power has dwindled to the UK, Spain and Japan. France Germany Russia China it seems would not bat an eyelid if America was attacked today. With China about to really challange America in trade with Russia in alliance where can America turn to keep it´s posisiton. The only option would be a cataclysmic war. Hopefully that will not be chosen so if not America must surely accept the new powers rising and share power. What are your thoughts?
