The US economy is so terrible that even the great city of New York is facing mass emigration due to economic downturn. It always was an overpriced and unsustainable lifestyle there, but the rest of the county has a housing market that still has yet to bottom out, a stable and still high unemployment rate offset only by those going backing to work for much less money, a pitiful dollar, insanely high gas/petrol, etc. All this because of meaningless wars in the Middle East. Bin Laden, the man allegedly responsible for 9/11 was allegedly killed in cold blood in his pajamas. Iraq is less table than it was under the former dictatorship. Pakistan hates the US after current events and the Taliban is gaining power again in Afghanistan. In summary, the USA in no longer a super power and has nothing to give. It is diminished and weakened by these wars which changed absolutely nothing, only caused the deaths of humans on both sides. The US is in debt to China. AIPAC comes to my country and demands the US turn their head away from our horrid economy to the Middle East? Why? Israel has an army. A good army. Why does my broke country need to support Israel? Unless you want to be the 51st state of the USA, I don't get it. Please ask Russia for support or the EU. The USA is broke. We are on the bottom rung. Stop asking us for anything, we have nothing.
