    Yep. But some people prefer the imbalance, just so long as its weighted towards the US.

    In the past 25 years let's see how many countries have been invaded by:

    a) China = 0
    b) Russia = 1, Georgia 2008
    c) USA = 5, Panama 1989, Haiti 1994, Yugoslavia 1998, Afghanistan 2001, Iraq 2003

    I think most neutral observers would conclude that China and Russia might adopt a less aggressive approach to international relations.

    you're a fast reader.

    ok, i'll answer your question after you answer mine. in five hundred words or less, please explain to me in your own words the global history of empires. i need to make sure that you have an understanding of this aspect of history before wasting any time discussing it with you.

    You just keep dodging my question. If we are not going to be the worlds super power who will or should be? It is a one word answer but I suspect you will keep running.

    Obama is trying to stear America away from War? What planet are you living on? We're still in Afghanistan last I looked, still droning Pakistan and many other places, was in a war with Lybia, gave weapons to terrorists to help over throw the Syrian government (the only reason he backed down on that was due to Putin showing him up of all people). What war has he tried to stop exactly? And don't even claim that he got us out of Iraq because it wasn't his plan that was used to withdraw from Iraq. It was a plan made by Bush and Iraq officials. He couldn't have changed that without looking REALLY bad.

    So, score one for China, 65 years ago. Of course then you have to add Korea, Vietnam, Grenada, Cuba, and the Dominican Republic to the US slate. As for the Soviet Union, it doesn't exist any more, so it really can't be viewed as a threat, but if you want to add Hungary, Czechoslovakia and Afghsnistan to their score-card, go ahead. We're still at 1:4:10. You still have a lot of work to do to convince anyone that there's a bigger threat to world peace and national self-determination around than the USA.
