But O man If China becomes a sole super power in the world people are going to laugh at how bad they thought the US was.

well... I see Britain as a sort of puppet of the US. They've not been a world power since before the second world war, if not much earlier. If the US persuades British intelligence to do some nasty thing, and they get caught, well it wasn't the US. It effectively disconnects the US from that action.
And... has there been any official explanation of the action of those Brits?

I'm not so sure about that, China doesn't have anything close to the US's record of sticking it's nose into everyone else's business. When was the last time China got itself into a war... 1979? How many has the US been in since then?
On the other hand, the US doesn't have anything close to China's record of using force against it's own citizens...

Britain is a power too, but not a military power. Just a political power that involves with every event behind the scenes in the world.
Britain has jetfighers, warships etc..., India, China, Iran, Turkey, Israel do have the same. So why are they not a super power?
