I notice that, their economy depends on China a lot. Commercially, their dependence on USA is seldom noticeable along their main streets and resort areas. I guess this is a sign that we are slipping away from our dominance in the world gradually. Of course, Several wars in the Arabic world have not helped us economically also, not even militarily.
We (USA) should think more about economical solutions, instead of military ones. It is really bad for us to let immigrants fight wars for us. If all politicians think it is good for us to fight, then their sons and daughters should be in the front together with mine. If they think Obamacare is a good recipe for us, they shall join without exception. If they think Social Security is working, they shall join too.
