I as a American am not threatened by other countries as China or Unions like the EU rising to a super power. I dont see these as threats to the US, We are Chinas best customers so I dont really see why they would want to attack us. As for the EU though some people in those countries dont really like America that much right now I dont see them wanting to destroy America.

I can actually see world peace becoming more and more of a reality now with U.S.A, Japan, EU, and China begining to leading the way.

Don't get me wrong, I would love for China to be successful because I know that for them to become successful, they have to become more like us and there is safety in that for everyone. My worry is that their social evolution isn't keeping pace with their economic growth. Until they surmount that particular hurdle, they will never be #1 in anyone's eyes but their own.

Rest assured that US will be the #1 for at least next 30 years, without major wars or destruction. But I do see the fear of US to lose the #1 spot and act idiotically. China want to better the living of all Chinese, and do not want war. But if anyone or any nation attacks the core interest of China, it will be destroyed, and be #1 no more. US and China should work together and respect each other.
