The article presents the second of the three collections of edited articles that focus on economic globalization and its impact in the U.S. military dominance in 2009. It states that economic growth has normalized territorial geopolitics as a result of the shift made by countries in the Asian region from geopolitical exertion of power and territorial conflicts to economic development. It cites that it is impossible that the U.S. will continue its military influence to each nation globally.
