    Please reread the statement again...SOLELY based...I never said military power wasn't a factor. Read a bit more carefully next time. And to answer your questions lets examine some current power players who do not exert unilateral, interest-based, military force...Japan, India, Brazil etc. Should I go on? Ain't is not a word by the way... just saying.

    Great? no. Regional? Quite possible - too much depends on the next 36-48 months.


    For about 30ish years. Max. Assuming they retain stability.

    I agree with Morality Games...we're heading to a multi-polar world. The US,EU,China...eventually India and Brazil along with Russia.

    The good thing is that in a multi-polar world everything isn't a zero sum game and can't remember where I read it...but multi-polar worlds are generally peaceful.
