Unfortunately, when Americans get what they deserve, the rest of world get what they don't deserve.
It depends. The rest of the "free world" has typically slavishly followed what the US wanted even when it was obviously not a good idea, like some sort of dependent druggie, and questioning that was quite difficult. Now that what they're doing is becoming unquestionably bad for even the most ardent follow-the-US conservative, it'll be easier for the rest of the world to ignore them. And about time.
