Mansoor:

Europe is a dying continent and losing world power much faster than we are in America. We actually spent billions bailing out EU banks, which many Americans don't know about because the government is trying very hard to cover its spending.

As far as an economic downturn goes, if we go, so will China, who is financing our debt.

China militarily is an emerging power. Don't be surprised if they try and tighten their grip in contested Kashmir.

Can Pakistan, which depends heavily on USA foreign aid to "fight" the Taliban, hold Kashmir with India in front and China behind it?

I think not.
