    Re: Who is the next superpower?

    I don't think the US has reached it's peak just yet. So we will see the USA still be the superpower till at least 2100. The US might last till 2300 who knows, there has never been a superpower with the strength of the US. All those who say the US will fall or not be a superpower are just upset that the US can be so powerful and so young.
    It's like this scenario: A man works at a company for 30yrs and has done many great things for the company. In those 30yrs he never worked for someone younger so it is a shock for him when the company hires a new boss a position he suspected of getting and the company chooses a new employee that has had only three years experience and he is in his 20s still unlike the 50yr old.
    The US is a power unlike any other because we don't have those old traditions which hold us back like the others.

    The power most hurt by this is the US, due to the fall in confidence other now have in its economic ability and economic management ability, and even economic model. Before, the US model was what everyone aimed for and believed to be indisciminately great.

    A superpower is not defined by military power...The greatest superpowers are the ones which have a model that other aspire to follow.

    The super-power criteria is now economic, with Japan and Germany in the lead, as I see it. But with India, China, and Korea competing, this will split things a lot..
    China is building a brand new military strategy, where economic tools and manipulation is playing a far more important role than troops and old fashion military meneuvers. Also electronic, digital, infrastructure type attacks will be far more devestating in the future than military invasion.

    Thats what Europe needs to build a future defense against, or simply just build infrastructure with superior security infrastructure. That is the best defense. Not to say that we should not have old fashion men with guns as well.

    What are you basing this on? So long as Russia can assert its influence within its 'near abroad' Putin couldnt give a toss what goes on in the E.U. I doubt i will be seeing Russia hordes crossing the channel any time soon
