Judging by the international reaction to the US election, it seems that anti-Americanism may once again be growing. Most people would simply dismiss this by saying "oh who gives a shit what they think." However, with the advant of globalization, our economies are all dependent on each other.

With rising EU and Chinese markets, is it only a matter of time before America is no longer the worlds leading player? If history has taught us anything, isolation will always lead to a nations downfall. Could America face isolation as a result of resentment from the rest of the world?

Anti-Americanism won't determine the market's direction. Self-interest will. Money talks, etc.

And as long as we're the only Western country with a legitimate military, we're not in danger of irrelevance just yet.

The EU will collapse upon itself before they ever compete on an even playing field economically with the US...

The EU isn't what you have to worry about. China and India is what you should be worried about as economic superpowers.

The seriousness of this thread can not be understated. Now that we are in Iraq, regardless of why we went in the first place, we are their. It's up to Uncle Sam to uncover and reveal to the world that something had to be done.
