China and India were the two richest nations on earth.

I doubt it quite frankly. With such a overwhelming man-power and wealth I do not understand why a relatively small nation like the UK could ...


Btw, back to the Ming dynasty the Chinese already sailed around the world, but did not what the colonial powers (Europeans, incl Japan and USA) did: exploiting and even annihilating the lesser technology advanced civilizations. Technology is the sole factor which could give organized forces of lesser numbers centuries long the time to suppress and abuse non-organized numbers much greater than theirs.

Great thing is that because of globalization and the information technology era, communication is instantly and information sharing faster than one can poo. The result is that technological gaps are becoming much and much slimmer, and differences marginal only. It is therefore the reason why countries with much bigger population have a better chance of becoming much more powerful equivalent to the demograhy. Actually if you look back to even the current structure and even history. Eventually the bigger countries in population will prevail when technology is around the same level, this is why the most populous DEVELOPED country became the world's sole superpower.

Err...sorry but your "what if2 has a not unimportant flaw.....Communism/Socialism is an European Ideology. Although the Qing for sure would have been exchanged with another dynasty...but ...


In whatifs I can even theorize that the Galactic Federation of the Orion stellar system would have come down to the little blue planet to transform all human beings into spoons.

That`s exactly why "what ifs" shouldn`t play a role at all......

Many are asking this question.

What do you think?


Who are the many do you think? I've never heard anyone suggest that the world would be better without the US.
I personally think it'd be a cold day in hell that it'd ever happen and if it  did, there'd be such a massive vacuum left that it'd never be filled, or do you propose China fills it (or tries to at least). This  poses a huge problem geopolitically and there's not exactly a lot of trust out there for and of China from what I've heard. The US is the worlds most generous nation which not only gave massive aid to allies in WW2, but also supplied huge military forces to enable the aggressor nations to be defeated and that DOES include China as a recipient of said aid. Not only did the US assist in defeating  the enemy but once done, they showed their generosity in rebuilding them too and look at those nations today. The US never colonised Africa but did give massive aid to try and help fight famine and pestilence. That a large portion of those funds were sequestered by corrupt leaders and warlords isn't the US's fault. Yes, the US has made mistakes but so has every nation on Gods green earth so this point can't be made again either. To imagine a world without the US would be the epitome of foolishness and would lead to an even more unstable world situation when those big grey ships don't show up off the coast. It worked in 1996 in the strait so don't suggest it wouldn't work against China either. It's worked a few times against China, each time such a deployment occurred actually.
Nope, a world without the US is unimaginable and to even suggest such a thing is indicative of such hatred that I can't fathom.

To petera; maybe the shills (as you call us) will stop when you trolls do.

Not going to happen.  Not from me.  Not anymore.  

Just finished reading all about the Times Square Bomber.  No way can we lie down.
