The longest it has happened is 80 years. We got started in the 1940's. Kids born between 1997-2007 will be the ones dying in vain if we become to arrogant to accept our fate. Both of my children were born during that time period. I hope we accept reality when the time comes to turn our key over to China. Possibly India.
    Tensions were hardly at a peak during Gorbachev's era. More like during Khrushchev's, but the relative reforms by Andropov and Chernenko eased much tensions.

I choose China. They have a great culture, a great economy, a great language and a large amount of people. I surely want them on our side. It sure would suck if it ends up being one of those other countries. I would hate to be ruled by India or Pakistan but I would tolerate it if it became necessary. The other choices are unrealistic but those countries would be too weak to maintain their power. I wouldn't want to be siding with them.

    China, hands down.

    No but I do know about the complexities of the language. It sounds very overwhelming. I know a lady from Taiwan that is willing to teach me. Supposedly the Chinese language was reformed in the 80's to make it more modern. The Taiwanese reject modern Chinese. Is the modern Chinese just as difficult as the old language? There is a picture for each word. Every part of the character tells a little story about the word. It sounds very elaborate from what little I know. How much do you know about the Chinese language?

    It would be beneficial for Americans to learn Chinese even if it is a little difficult. Americans have little incentive to learn another language because all world literature has already been translated into English. A hostile regime change might provide sufficient motivation to make Chinese the official language of these United States. It sounds like a winner to me.

    Modern Chinese still has thousands of characters to remember. Trying to explain the language is almost as difficult as trying to learn it. Although English and most Western languages are based on alphabets and therefore easy to learn, Chinese is not.

    Ugh. I may have to learn it, too. I am not looking forward to that.

    I like Indian food.

    I suppose I could get used to Bollywood.
    Civilized people, enjoy soccer, fine with guns, they have nukes, women are the opposite of bad looking, rock and roll
    Sure, India it is.

    Can we judge this on the women?

    I would have to go with China then.
