its about time there was a nation that could challenge the .u.s. because no one could tell them what to do they have been no1 one for along time and it scares me that they can do pretty much what they want with out being challenged at least someone else can step in if they step out of line say N.W.O.
please don't take offence its the government im talking about not the people

I agree with you on this. America also needs to adopt a non-interventionist foreign policy. Global hegemony isn't good for us or the rest of the world.

I would, however, find China a far more unpleasant overlord, no doubt about it.

I don't think this is true, you know the Chinese people are well-known for being modest ,even they really achieve something.

I dont think they are saying they are number 1 in a particular aspect.
More an over all understanding of todays reality.

America is simply a burnt out wasp.. it has plenty of sting (military and bombs), but its overall ability to move things is minimal ( think economy, trade, influence, moral standing, industry ) and its people? well for the better part are bloated and addicted to drugs, medicines or tv.

Where as china

Has the military sting, has the economic capacity and has able people.

Yes, the US could bomb the world and prove its number on the insanity and ego list.. but that isnt an option, as it would result in everyone being blown up.

So ,the US really has to accept that China is calling the shots, unless it wants to drastically do something stupid.

Surely you knew the Bush Presidency would ruin your country and knock it off the perch it once stood at during Clinton' and pre Clinton days?

The US has the strongest military on earth..but thats because we spend a jazillion bucks a year on it. Russia has the largest ground troops though (21 million).

the rest is up for grabs

the US will lose the economic power in time due to no real investment in science and innovation, and indeed China will overtake us. Depending on how long we ignore scientific achievement, the margain will grow wider and wider until we are basically just a useless consumer nation with no real industry or innovation to speak of.

I am glad China is taking their movement to become top seriously. They are doing some serious investments in scientific achievements and capitalizing on breaking technology. Watch personal robotics and medicine from the east,

I am sad that the west has chosen to collectively decline. I guess we are victims of our own ego and pride. This is not our governments fault, this is the peoples fault to choose corporations to run our interests over progressing as a civilization. We are now coming to the end of our time unless our whole mindset changes

and it won't.

I agree with you on all points. We need to wake up as a country and realize we can't stay on top by lowering education standards, passing weak students in school, burying the real economic producers and job providers under heavy taxes and passing more laws everyday, to puff up the resumes of congressmen, but failing to enforce the ones they already passed. Oh and by the way, if we don't enforce our borders and make illegal aliens get in line for lega immigration, we may as well just call our selves Southern Canada.

Right. Well if you're some citizen of a 3rd world country and you get threatened by a neighboring country like Venezuela as an example, and you call for help - who do you want to see coming over the hill to help you? The US Marines or Chinese troops?

Let me put this in perspective for you. China is still Communist. When I lived in a communist country, we were told every day that Russia is the best country in the whole wide world. We (the kids) believed it of course. We were all under the impression that the West was starving and dying, and we had it great just where we were. I was watching a documentary on North Korea yesterday, and people who escaped North Korea expressed that until they crossed the border, they had NO IDEA that the rest of the world was so rich in comparison to North Korea. Kim Jong Il continues to brainwash his people into believing that while they are starving to death, all the other countries in the world have it even worse! Of course a Chinese newspaper would say they're number 1. It's the only way to keep their people from leaving in droves.

Sigh....wake up folks.

The real NUMBER 1 are the bankers, not US, China, Norway, etc.

Elite Bankers play with both sides and all sides like a Casino. And like the Casino, the house never loses. They call the shots. We are merely slaves for them. We are either serve in their corporations to make them wealthy, or engage in armed warfare, sacrificing blood and lives to protect their resources.

They, with their wealth, will continually worm their way into idealistic forces one way or another to seize control. Either the nations accept their bribes, or will face their wrath, manipulationg their govt puppets to wage war. Stalin and Mao tried on their own, and even as brutual as they could be, they were no match for the bankers.

Even the late Presidents Harding, Coolidge, Hoover and Roosevelt, best of american men, were no match to the power and wealth these bankers controlled.

They simply wage propaganda and threats of wars to cripple their economies. Today, commie China CCP knew the odds, and accepted the bribes. They had too, or they themselves will face ruin in their hands of their impoverised masses without the corporation's lies of 'uplifing' poverty. But not many were fooled.

The only constant in life are changes. Once the elite bankers are revealed for what they truly are, they too will be subjected to changes, one way or another, for the status quo cannot be allowed to remain for the sake of future generations awaiting to be truly born free.

America just needs to wake up and grow it's balls back. Americans have just grown lazy and full of McDonald's grease. Take a good look around,anyone here that is over 40 years old should be able to see it. I remember getting my ass handed to me if i was not home sitting at the table when supper was ready. Going to school in the 70's try showing up in class with your shirt tail not tucked or forget to bring a pencil to class hell did not have to worry about your parents whooping your ass, it was bend over grab your ankles time for the teacher that had a wood shop
fetish for making surreal devices for busting your ass with.There was a time when the pledge of allegiance ran goose bumps.
The information age has spoiled us and made us seem weak. Mark my words we are hard headed and have to hit rock bottom to get our heads out our butts and that day is coming. America is the greatest nation ever we just need to get back to the morals that made us what we are and then we can and will show the rest the world.

lol sorry just my ramblings about all the silliness now day. America will wake up please don't push us..

That's because, Hu is trying very hard to restraining himself from saying "It would be better for you to concern yourself by cleaning your own backyard first.. it makes you look and act like a #ing hypocrite".

You can almost see Hu losing he's cool.
