China is headed for a big economic crash which may make them more volatile as far as the territorial disputes are concerned, there is a distinct possibility that there will be a regional war in the far east pretty soon. Life for us will be about the same although a lot of China's money will be in the US housing market. China is nearly sinking under the weight of their own army, but they are a cyber threat to be sure.
China will never be a superpower. Once Obama's massive debt forces the US to default on the bonds China is holding, China will go broke
Considering how they treat their own citizens, its a safe bet they wouldn't play any nicer on the world stage.
think about how many people are currently in china then you'll understand why the government "can't treat them nicely".
Lots worse. China's rapid industrialization is detrimental to the earth and society.
like a beehive
If their growing middle class demands democracy, maybe better.
They already are one of three superpowers. They have Veto powers, and they like to keep things on a delicate little balance in the Pacfic...so, it's a little late for 'what if' situations, the country is as much an importance to World Economics as they are a danger to Regional Security.<br />
I'm on the fence.
China has been recognized as a Supper power for at least a couple of decades. In the past ten years or so, as China has opened it self and it's people to a free market, has become a SUPER POLLUTER. That is not to say they haven't been polluting before this, more so it is the massive amounts of their industrialization that has taken place that is wreaking havoc on their breathable air in the cities.....bc
