Many believed that power derives from the barrel of a gun. And US have the most tech advance military might in the world.
But in the Age of Enlightenment, many realised now that it is logic and reasoning that will rule the hearts and minds of humanity, and not might.
Might is only temporary at best.
As such, US will let go most of it redundant war machine and keeps only strategic forces. So too will China, like Russia, realizes it cannot continue
to feed it 2 million strong non-productive military in the face of hunger and social needs from its 1.3 people.
True power lays in the might of hearts and minds of humanity, utilising its free-will. Free-will is a double edged sword and there are no 'greys' in
between. One either uses it to assist a civilised society to evolve upwards to greater heights, or to selfishly use it self-centredly which only
brings destruction to a society.
Never doubt the power and might of one man imbued with free-will. Alone, he can bring the world down to its knees as a terrorist and the spread of his
destructive ideas, which no bullets can kill.
But similarly, never doubt the power and free will of just a few good men, for our evolution lays with what actions they do to counter such selfish
and self serving individuals.
Throughout the history of mankind, it had been such men who saved humanity, such as the more recent ones - Team Queen Elizabeth I, Team George
Washington, Team FD Roosevelt, Team Gandhi, Team Mandela, etc. and many more unknown names, as history is still being written and usually takes a 100
years before much can be brought to better perspectives.
It would be a mistake, and a disinfo to presume US has lost its power to change events due to the Iranian power station incident. It may be a loss in
Might, but the battle for hearts and minds had not been lost on the rest of humanity, on its stayed of hand from a catastrophic war.
It will be humanity with open eyes and mind whom decides who had actually won in this encounter, and not some journalist with an axe to grind or
radical religious followers whose extreme views already render themselves without credibility.
