naturally lots of americans won't want to hear that, but im convinced most elected officials with a penis and a low enough income are very easily influenced...

Yeah just as I though, one cannot write a thread containing even remote criticism of the U.S. government without being overrun by over-zealous patriots.
Okay, so the reason the U.S.A. is the target of much attention is because it is a superpower. Its government is a major influence in the development of world politics, therefore what its governments decide will have strong repercussions upon the rest of the world.
I think the eventual deterioration of relations between the U.S. and Europe will deteriorate somewhat, but I don't think we'll have another repeat situation of the Cold War or anything like that. I am in the envisage of a break down of globalised society and a return to a more nationalised world.

Yeah i'd agree with that, especially germany, they are a powerhouse at the moment in terms of financial stability (or at least they would be if it wasnt for those damn greeks portugese and italians messing it up for them lol)
Uk is financially uncertain but has stronger ties to areas in the world that could help if needed, and yes even france are realativley stable at the moment, although they periodically do themselves no favours passing relativley extreme laws so its never a dull day in france.
so we are clear to the OP i dont think the ties will be broken any time soon, to much water under the bridge for that to happen, but i dont think Obama is doing much to prevent getting ANYONES back up at the moment.
