11) The fragile economic condition of the European Union is also a bad sign for America as it means that Germany, France and United Kingdom can not whole heartedly support it. Because of high rate of unemployment and rising dissatisfaction with regard to austerity measures being implemented by several EU countries the focus of the above mentioned countries is being shifted to solve their own problems first leaving USA to pursue any policy on its own. Even there is a rise in the support for left parties in the EU that is not a very great sign for USA. The recent elections in Greece are just an example of it.

Another war in the region in the shape of Israel's or USA's attack on Iran's nuclear facility and possible Iranian retaliation on Israeli, American and Saudi targets across the region with its strong navy and air force would bring catastrophe not just for the region but for the world also as there is a chance that other big powers might well involve themselves to save their "allies" or at least will provide every possible help in the shape of weapons and intelligence information.ABSAR AHMAD: Post graduate student of Masters in Communication Studies, Pune University, India.
