Posted on 30 May 2008 12:04 AM The main reason so many people hate the USA is because we are so powerful and flaunt it. Both the US and Russia did that during the cold war, but back then our military was defending against a threat:the USSR. If China overtakes us two things will happen:countries will become less fearful of us and more of China, and terrorism will focus more on China as they expand into Africa and the Middle East. The same thing happened with U.K. After their empire and world power was eclipsed and they moved away from the limelight, people paid less attention to them. When was the last time you heard someone saying that the U.K. is a blight on humanity?

This change in power blocks will make it far easier for the U.S. to form defensive alliances. I can see an alliance with Russia in 20 years-after the old guard that remembers creeping communism and the capitalist oppressors goes away. With China right on Russia's borders near Oil rich Siberia, Russia will feel as threatened by China as ever. By that time we will be very similar, with some of the worlds best tech and reasonably large population bases. We also have oil-rich territory that is close to china, are near enough to be of assistance, and the world's major food producers. I can see a Bering strait tunnel(2x as long as Chunnel, but much greater benefits). Hopefully by then we(USA) will be will on our way to weaning our way off oil(super-efficient batteries for electric cars, 80% efficiency solar cells, multi rotor turbines, and fusion isn't really that hard. Don't rule out cellulosic ethanol, algae-based biodiesel, or gasoline producing bacteria) Russia and the USA would make logical Allies, as we are close together via the north and we have similar problems and ambitions. Europe could be our friend too. The atlantic could be our private pond, and so would the arctic(and a safe place to park subs). We could easily hold onto power if we play it smart: neither Germany or France or the U.K. is very dangerous, but NATO is a force to be reckoned with.

And don't forget India. China might like to push us around, but India will be their main foe (unless a USA-EU-Russia union objects to being pushed around). Currently India is cozying up to our navy, and I could see them sticking by us for a while. India + USA would be equal to a strong China until India catches up with China, at which point Africa becomes the new place both countries are fighting over(like the modern middle east).

And we cannot forget the food situation. China is 1 billion strong, but they produce less food than either the USA or Russia. We could threaten to shut off food exports.

Russia could too, but they are so close China might be tempted to invade. Anyways Russia will still feel threatened by China as they always have, and China regards Siberia as rightfully theirs as part of Asia. Siberia is full of gas, remember. If Russia and the USA had close ties(extremely close, like using the same parts and gear in our militaries, inter-national companies (Mikoyan-Boeing), land exercises in Alaska and Siberia, naval exercises in the Arctic) we could easily remain dominant till 2100.

Posted on 26 September 2008 10:04 PM I doubt that China wants a conflict with the US, it gets a lot of business from the US. China is on its way to or has already gained an advantage over the US. If the flow of business suddenly stopped, it would give a new life to the economy, and remove a pillar of support for china. Currently China needs us, however, despite the current situation, we do not need china, most of what china does is take raw materials and convert it to goods. The US has the capability to create the framework for an economy that creates such thing.
