Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
True. But if the music really stops in a way that makes the US seriously reassess property ownership by the transnats, the world is going to be a quite different place. That would take something not too far short of a revolution. Which means that all political relationships - alliances, geostrategy, distribution of wealth, political power, everything - would be up for grabs to some extent or another.

Trying to grasp what the world will look like on the other side of such a fundamental discontinuity is, I think, more in the realm of tea-leaf reading than political analysis.
