One question is, that if China becomes the major world superpower with power projection/military might and all, would they be expected to become the 'world police' like the USA seem to be today? and would they take up that responsibility?
or on the other hand would they abuse their ability to produce numberless soldiers and technology advancements and force themselves upon the world militarily.
People complain about the USA abusing their military power around the world, but China could end up the same, even worse?

Since this thread has come up I believe these videos have a good explanation for at least one aspect of China becoming a superpower.
China's sky-rocketing growth and shortage of sufficient resources is forcing China to set its sights outside its borders in a frantic search for oil, but the major oil-producing countries are kept off-limits by the United States, forcing China to do business with the rogue states -- African dictatorships, Iran and former Russian states - to get the oil they desperately need.
I think you guys will find this interesting if you have not seen it yet.
