America is still the leading economic power all over the world. China is getting stronger, but she has not get the level of 'super'.
Does it really matter if the West is willing to upgrade us to superpower status? Hell!!! In the 60's, 70's and 80's, with the then world renown giant, the mighty Soviet Union, whose economy likely ranks well below any EU or NATO member were asigned the title. But did they deserve the title??? If based on economic status, I will have to contend that the answer is a great big "No!". But, they were the only one's able to incinerate the world a hundred times over (overkill) at the time hence entitling them for the title. Today however, even as we we're being begged by the West to help them out of their economic hell hole, they still deny us that title??? C'mon!!! I mean seriously!
Anyway, who cares what they think and how they treat the situation. All I know is that the fear out there now days is not the ten thousand nukes (Again overkill. A thousand should do the job) that Russia now have "but rather the thousand or so nukes that China have tucked away in some secret hideouts somewhere" which is making life so difficult for the Americans because, they now have to inject the Chinese variable into their nuke bullying equation.
In other words: No more thoughtless bullying with threats of ICBM's pointed our way. America's nuke card, it's diminishing in value and hence not a chip it can use to bargain with anymore and that is, and should be, all that matters to us.
The title superpower does not make an iota of a differences, my book. I mean just as it is with the Nobel Peace Prize dunce hat they give people who are favorable to their causes, the title "superpower" also is no more but just a psycological mind manipulating tool they use to direct the thoughts of the masses, so are you guys one of these manipulated masses?
