The US has been bankrupting itself with being world policemen. Iraq will cost $3 Trillion. There are no projections yet on Afghanistan. Libya is costing significantly less, to the dismay of some. And bailing our the stock brokers and bankers worldwide and in the US is turning out to be more than the US can afford. So if and when others have issues, they will have to solve them without the US for some decades to come. It is even unknown if the US can afford the aid to Egypt, Israel, Jordan and the PA. We are cutting schools and fire protection and police already and some are planning to let the elderly and poor go with little to no health care in the future.
