Some analysts say the US - bogged down in wars and pressed by emerging powers - will have to rethink its role in world affairs. Norwegian sociologist Johan Galtung, a peace and conflict expert, goes further by predicting the fall of the "US Empire". "Iraq is not at all turning out the way they hoped, certainly not Afghanistan either. The same will happen in Yemen and Somalia and a number of other countries where they now have undercover operations," he told RT. Moreover, the sociologist believes what is going to happen in those areas - for instance, in Afghanistan - is not even decided in Washington.
