NEW YORK: In a sign of the times, the National Debt Clock in New York City has run out of digits to record the growing figure.
As a short-term fix, the digital dollar sign on the billboard-style clock near Times Square has been switched to a figure the "1: in $10tn. It's marking the federal government's current debt at about $10.2tn.
The Durst Organization says it plans to update the sign next year by adding two digits. That will make it capable of tracking debt up to a quadrillion dollars.
The late Manhattan real estate developer Seymour Durst put the sign up in 1989 to call attention to what was then a $2.7tn debt.

no ways is america needed as moral or military leader ,it cuases imperialism ...
USA has to sink and China /india or Russia will have to become top dog , most probably China will be economic top dog , while Russia will be military top dog
The technologies that Russia employs in its military are all copycats taken from of American ingenuity. On a side note, a war between any of the worlds three superpowers (America, Russian, and China), would be the death of us all in a matter of hours. For this reason doubt/hope it will never occur.
