all, since all those strenghts are important in the world of politics
By US standards there are few conventional military powers. Most countries with any military power do it by volume not technology(china/nk are good examples of volume). Every time there is a UN operation, it is the US carrying most of the weight of the operation(bosnia,kosovo, gulf war one).
Economy wise Europe is suffering a bit right now, but France still has significant economic and political power over Europe..
The only real powers(economic, military or politica) that opposed the operation in iraq were france, germany,china and russia. China and Russia sat out the first one.
UK(has a more capable military than france) and Austrailia provided military support.
There were regional powers in the mideast that provided logistical support.
