But what would happen if the USA disappeared from the Diplomatic community entirely?
I would say that world economies and trust would be hurt and it would turn back the clock about 300 years until everyone could move forward to accept somekind of mutual peace that would move them forward.

Agit8ed, I always enjoy your posts, you're articulate and I think you've got a pretty good idea about what is really happening here in the U.S.
I'm afraid we Americans have let arrogance and ignorance get the better of us. The rest of the world fears and hates us, as they see our policies as inhumane, and our foreign policies as being very dangerous to other countries. Of course, many Americans will get very angry and defensive when they hear it, but doesn't everyone respond that way when they're faced with the truth?
