By fair means or foul Hillary Clinton will be elected POTUS next week. [Boy was I wrong about that! Ed'.....On the upside now hoping now the war with Russia will be called off.]
Consequently, the US now faces the likelihood of a nuclear exchange with Russia and thus faces an existential threat to its existence. At least, that is clearly the view from Moscow and they would know. It is time to ask “what would the world be like without the USA”. Is the United States in fact the "indispensible nation" it professes to be?
Actually the world would move on pretty fast. These are my thoughts:
If the United States were nuked tomorrow the world would move on without great difficulty. Wahhabism and other social movements would lose a major sponsor. The world would have more space to develop fairer relations based on trade and mutual development. However, this would require a realistic investment in defence by the world’s remaining democracies, and greater coordination between them on matters of mutual interest.
