This article makes the claim that Putin is now the world’s most powerful leader instead of Obama (as ranked by Forbes). Does this mean the end of the American unipolar era? Only time will tell, however, it’s doubtful, considering the massive military and economic might that the US musters. It’s definitely a blow to American dominance worldwide– but that doesn’t mean it has to signal the collapse of our leadership. Let’s just hope that the United States and Russia can continue along with reset policies and keep the relationship growing and strong.
