In most of those countries you mentioned, their largest trading partner today is China.
That may be true, but the benefits are mutual and the trade isn't as lop-sided in China's favour as the pro-Chinese retards on these threads would have you think. They would have you believe that China and only China benefits from trade agreements with other nations when that is simply not reality. Countries only import what they really need and right now China provides cheap products. Don't expect that in the future IF the Chinese economy holds up (That's a big if) because labour wages will pretty much even out so why should a country import from China when the cost of the product is the same as their own country. Many American companies are going back home. Why? Because the labour their has become cheaper and there isn't so much red tape and hassle. That's only one of many examples I could give you.

Economics and the wealth of nations is like a game of monopoly. Have you ever played the board game MONOPOLY? If you ever have then can you tell me the last time there was ever a clear winner? Answer: There never has been. No one ever wins...it's a game of ups and downs and when you are tired of playing you simply fold the board and stop...and maybe continue playing the next day. Seriously, who ever won a game of monopoly? It's impossible.

That means nothing. By 2030 at the latest the Chinese population is projected to shrink to 1.2 billion while the Indian population is projected to reach 1.6 billion. India is a sleeping giant and I feel that China will exhaust itself quite quickly and when they do India will become the next asian giant. Geographically, India is located in an ideal location while China is stuck in the remote Far East. Advantage: India.

China allies don't include Russia.

Only the DPRK that cannot even feed itself is CCP China's ally.

China under the CCP dictatorship really has no allies at all to speak of. It is an isolated, friendless dictatorship living on borrowed time.

Japan, a democracy, has the most powerful nations on earth as allies.

It's good to see Japan flex it's military muscles against a bully. Japan could - and should - play a much bigger role in the pacific.

So the Chinese population will shrink while India grows. Don't you see a problem with 2.8 billion people trying to afford a better lifestyle? Where will India get the resources? By 2020 China should just about have most of it owned or under contract! Being stuck in the "remote" Americas didn't seam to be much of a problem for the US.

Is that why you keep giving dates and pushing for China to become a SUPER POWER? Is it because you're old and you feel you won't be around to see it. Sorry, it doesn't work that way. It's a process- and often a slow one, and it's not like you'll wake up on January 1, 2018, walk out your front door and see every Chinese in China is comfortably middle-class and happy with their lives.

America's decline was also a slow process. It actually began way back in the 1960s when "Liberal" social and economic and political policies eventually forced themselves to the forefront of the old Christian Anglo-Saxon order. Don't fool yourself into believing that America suddenly went belly up in 2008 because that's simply not true.

Of course I see the "2.8 Billion People" thing to be a problem and that's one of the primary reasons I don't see China lifting all of its people to middle-class status.

"By 2020 China should just about have most of it owned or under contract!"

That's an incredible claim that's too fantastic to believe. Do you honestly believe that the Chinese can just throw their money around and buy up the resources of all the other nations? It'll never happen, old man, so you need to sober up...

" Being stuck in the "remote" Americas didn't seam to be much of a problem for the US...."

Hmm...let's see The Pacific on one side and the Atlantic on the other a huge, sparsely populated country loaded with natural resources and an entire continent that you can walk to situated to the south...I couldn't think of a better location for a country such as America!!! You're a real funny guy...

The main problem is that "crystal ball" in your head seems to be empty of all logic and facts.
Unless you have real examples of Chinese history when they invaded and killed tens of millions of foreign civilians I'd recommend you keep the details of your wet dreams to yourself.
Have you heard of TIBET????? Korea? Have you heard of what Mao did to HIS OWN PEOPLE?

Man, you really are one ignorant dude!

(Reuters) - The brother of blind activist Chen Guangcheng has gone missing, a lawyer said on Saturday, days after he fled his village in northeastern China to seek help for his son who has been detained in a case that has become a rallying point among rights activists.

No worries, China was the world's largest economy in 18 of the past 20 centuries. So, China returning to that position is just the historical NORM.

And I may be around another 40 years. That's why I won't see India becoming a developed country.
