China and America are very much in the same situation now, it may never happen, but it might, history shows us, it is more than likely. Hopefully it wont, but we just dont know.
One could become a Republic and the other could turn into an Empire.

The China vs. US war is BS. It will never happen, unless others start it.
"What the Americans and the Japanese fear is that we will catch up with them, which is why they exhaust every possible means to suppress China's development," wrote Gen Liu. "We should not fall into their trap."

China won't war with the US, because it'd be destroying its best customer!
The US won't war with China, because it's like blowing up the bank where all your money is.
Instead, what will happen is that the US will allow the Middle East to pump out all of its oil, while the US sits on the largest reserves of oil out of anyone.
Then, once the Middle Eastern sources are running dry...the US will relax restrictions, build refineries like mad, and then quickly pay off Chinese debt, while simultaneously becoming the number one oil producer in the world, and, just by waiting, will become the last remaining superpower.
At least, that's why I HOPE the US is sitting on its deposits, and doing nothing to refine them.
