Look guys , you can't look at this personally. If you are an avid student or wanna be student of foreign policy this article is amazing. I have to give credit to Ray for finding it( not in my Fab Fav 5 of friends in my phone) . However, sometime I go I had an thread posted that China or India will not be superpowers in distant future too. They will be economic powers for sure BUT to be a super power you need to go up against NATO and US cumulative bases and military power. Below is a lesson of how a Super Power works to diffuse any perceived threat to its status. Fantastic read for those who love politics , especially foreign policy and militray strategies. ( I assume this was not posted as a thread previously, lol) again, don't get caught up in taking it personally ( talk about your countries).
