The US remains the most powerful country in the world and the US president is the most powerful person.  While it is being argued that the Russian initiative was prompted by the US threat,  it could also be argued that the US president has made a spectacular climbdown.

Does this lend credence to Gilbert Achcar's view that the US was not that keen to get involved?  Or does it indicate that anti-war sentiment is so strong that the imperialists' ability to make war has been compromised?  if so, what does this say about the ability of the US to make war in the future?
