        American opinions are built on economic and military power. If we default, they both go away...not quickly since the ripples will take some time to flow outward, but they'll be present in a real way.

        Your diary is interesting in its suggesting that Americans can have some effect.

        But the idea that once the USA is forcibly replaced because of its inability to provide a core of international economic stability the opinion of Americans will matter much (either way!) is laughable.

        Americans have an effect, and their opinion a worth, globally because of economic power. The biggest policy decision facing Israel is a domestic budget issue to be decided in the next 25.5 hours.
