    UK think tank says US power fading

    London, Sept 15 (AP) A weakened United States could start retreating from the world stage without help from its allies abroad, an international strategic affairs think tank said today.

    The London-based International Institute for Strategic Studies said President Barack Obama would increasingly turn to others for help dealing with the world's problems in part because he has no alternative.

    "Domestically Obama may have campaigned on the theme 'yes we can'; internationally he may increasingly have to argue 'no we can't'," the institute said in its annual review of world affairs.

    The report said the US struggles against insurgent groups in Iraq and Afghanistan had exposed the limits of the country's military muscle, while the near-collapse of the world financial markets had sapped the economic base on which that muscle relied.

    yeah thats true,
    after fall of USSR, US has become Unipolar section of power in the world .
    But now its becoming a Multipolar section in this world, these type of situation may cause agressive ness and everyone fights for No-1 ,
    this type of situations only may become reasons for WW-III?
    where their is no one leader to keep every rouge state in control.
