Aftenposten: US a "former" super-power

In an article on Norway's hesitance to immediately recognize Kosovo as an independent state, Norway's Aftenposten describes both the US and Russia as "former super-powers":
Russia, which long has supported Serbia, is furious over Kosovo's declaration of independence, and would have vetoed it had the issue come up before the UN Security Council. The US supports Kosovo's independence, so Norway is caught between the two former super powers.
