The intervention to other countries’ internal affairs seems to be the United States unilateral policies but it seems that its one of the reason for its downfall. The worst foreign-policy mistake as claimed by analysis to put Russia as a traditional rival of the United States along with China, Iran, and North Korea.

The uprising Japan's claim on China's Diaoyu Islands seems to be the latest serious issues in the Asia Pacific region in testing the position of the United States as the super power.

Basically, the claimed say it’s a security measure to prevent anticipated attempts by other powers to mount an attack to the United States.

As the world’s superpower, the United States fear the rising of other country to challenge its dominating position, it needs to maintain power balances among other nations by intervening whichever it can.

Economically, the United States has also intervened to exploit the other countries for economical gain. Relatively, once upon the time, the United States is a very wealthy and very technologically advanced nation, but as the excessively intervention and spending otherwise, had caused the nation in trouble.

According to Reuters, an Iraqi militia that carried out some of the most prominent attacks on foreigners during the Iraq war threatened US interests in the country over the anti-Islam film that has triggered protests in Libya, Egypt, Yemen and elsewhere.
“The offense caused to the messenger (Prophet Mohammad) will put all American interests in danger and we will not forgive them for that,” Qais al-Khazali, leader of the Asaib al-Haq militia, said.

The threat followed Tuesday night’s storming of the United States Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, where the US ambassador and three other staff were killed.
