I'm sure most here on ATS remember
a while back where the CIA was blamed
for starting riots in Iran over the election.
Well it may seem we were actually involved
with an attempted regime change in Iran.
this is a thank you note from Israel for our efforts.
Corruption among senior officials, including off-budget financial flows in support of senior leaders. Sources of funding for political candidates, and government plans and efforts to ensure funding transparency.

This is a view I hear quite a lot irl, but imo its overly simplistic. Other factors to consider are 1st the 800lb gorilla in the international room which is that the "sub-prime mortgage crisis" was not an accident, it was nothing less than deliberate economic warfare waged by the USA with the express intention of preventing the Euro from gaining further ground against the US$ as an international reserve currency, driving the US$ down in relative value & prompting grave fears of inflation within the USA. It was partially successful, but only partially, for another reason which is rarely discussed: the Eurozone runs a small trade surplus, thus could actually pay its debts, should it become necessary to bail some of the more poorly performing economies out with the slush fund created for that purpose & the Eurozone could withstand the kind of inflation that may result. Whereas the USA runs a massive trade deficit & thus cannot pay its debts, nor withstand much inflation.

Look at the demographic projections for europe. Ageing declining populations all around. Crippling social care costs that will only increase.
I agree that, having defrauded Europe so egregiously, the USA would be wise to look to the Far East, b/c they'll certainly not get a chance to pull off a scam like that again in Europe! The trouble is that I just cant see the good ol' US public standing for the kind of political concessions the BRIC nations are going to want in return for economic cooperation with the USA. As much as, from the options available, Obama was the man for the job, no amount of smiling & behaving respectfully is going to cut any ice with the likes of Vladimir Putin, Hu Jintao, etc. Also, as much as the sabre-rattling over North Korea may distract the US public, no world leaders are concerned about much other than oil & what currency its sold for.
