Fear of withdrawal

This from somebody close to me (how close, I dare not say) :

I am worried. The news is not good. We have a government which has been corrupt, incapable of true governing, and, in general, a political and social failure. Our largest city has suffered another weekend of violence and death, and another city, on our border, shows signs of uncontained violence which might spill over again into our own regions, and which has already claimed the lives of some of our own.

I am afraid the US will withdraw its support, and we innocents in the otherwise peaceful Forgottonia will suffer the fallout from the troubles.
