I swear, if Chinese and Americans would stop dreaming of competing each other they could dominate the world.
I have ties to both countries and I long for the day that these two countries would set their differences aside and focus on dominating everyone else
Why do Asians have to hate each other so much.
Mainland China and Taiwan.
China and India.
Korea and Japan.
US and China.
Whatever. Sino-America has such potential, its a crying shame we can't all pull our heads out of our arses.

We will believe you when we see your stuff going to the moon. You indians are very willing to make some promises and fail to deliver. Exampels, Arjun and LCA. Also, you don't even have an ICBM, how can you go to the moon in 3 years? You also reported to build a carrier in 2 years yet you can't even built any decent DDGs or frigates or subs.
Please man, I am not bashing you, but you should know how bureacratic your government works and how slow things are in your government.
Also, I don't know if EU has the capability. At least they haven't done it. They either lack the will or the resources. Again, I will believe it when I see it because talking is cheap.

China is already a superpower in the asian arena. They will never be the sole superpower that America is today. They import more of their oil than America does today. America is in control of the worlds oil supply. Look at Americas military bases around the richest oil deposits in the world. America has the strongest navy in the world controlling the worlds shipping lanes. China spends a fraction of its gdp on military expenditures and most of their expenditures go to buying foreign made weaponry. They are making progress but still fall short in this area. They would have to secure with force oil for their economic engine. that would mean an invasion of the middle east. If china invaded the middle east they would be stomped on by the America and Europe. A lesson from history shows Germany was becoming the envy of the world for its manufacturing and innovation and they were crushed 2 times for it. They were manipulated by the British and big banking to ensure their downfall. I suspect something similiar will happen to china. Look at the tension between china and the US before 9-11 happened and shifted Americas focus. At some point China and America will come to blows over oil and I do not think China has enough time to build up their military to take the US on and militarily defeat them. Just my 2 cents worth.
