    i dont see chinese ever being more widely spoken then english, due to logistical and geographical nature of english languages being so wide spread... more countries native tongue is english.

    china language will become more wide spread due to economy and business.. but thats as far as it goes

    Japan and Germany Are jokes. Japan has no independence. No way it was going to be challenging American power, neither will India or brazil as they have no independence. America will force India and brazil to accept something like plaza accord just like it was forced upon Japan. America has brazil, India, Japan, Germany under control. They will do whatever America tells them. Only china and Russia have independence from America, so we can challenge them, but Russian economy is too resource dependent. That leaves only china, china is far too powerful and united to be controlled, so the Americans will try their best to contain china.

    Only china can truly challenge American dominance in the 21st century.

    Voila!!! . I do agree the fact that China is a direct challenge to America but I disagree placing India under the American Umbrella... India is a sovereign nation and cannot be exploited by another nation. If India wanted to contain china , India could have supported the American's and could have been a base for them right next to your border in south Tibet. India does not want a western influence in Asia. We have a Business relationship with America and nothing more. America wants us because we are a good defense market, and we want America because they are the best in what they make.

    Challenge what and how? Your govt can't even trust you to read free news and you think you are going to dominate us ( US)?

    You have now what 1/2 of our GDP? and lets see- your average per capita family income is $2000/ year. I pay my housecleaners $4800/year and that too they come only twice a month. US average is 48,0000 or close to it. what you are you going to dominate?

    we have bases all over the world and surround you. Our technologies are 20 years ahead of you ( less those you copy/paste/steal from us). what are going to dominate stud? we are the only superpower with NATO alliance in the world. Who you going to dominate son?

    LOL your avatar name shows how much you dominate. Still waiting on making an indigenous engine we made 60 years go.

    I think it won't be long before America demands a military base in India. They will put enormous pressure on india through the Indian lobby group in America. America wants to contain china, because they know we and the Russians are the only ones that don't bow down to american demands. America will use India as a puppet to contain china. That's the only use for India from America's perspective. India will never challenge american power, they don't mind living in an American dominated world. America will never ever alow any Power to challenge their dominance, just look at what they did to Japan in the 1980s just when Japan was starting to challenge American economic dominance. America will allow you to rise to a certain level, then your a threat to their dominance. China is starting to reach that point of challenging American power in certain areas. Chinas influence is growing very fast, now America has to respond to our rise.

    China is mentioned in american media every single day. It's an obsession. We are doing something right to make America uneasy

    No matter how you stress that 'us' means 'U.S.' You are still being viewed as a little brown boy comes from poor South Asia and has to suffer from the invisible glass ceiling in the main stream society in the U.S.

    "Still waiting on making an indigenous engine we made 60 years go." You made it 60 years ago?? 60 years ago your family probably living in a slum in the middle of nowhere AKA India.

    You may have a choice between CNN and Fox but to say it from your heart, what's the different between their trash talks and a 100% lie?

    FYI the annual income of household in China is $16k.

    When you Chinese loose the argument you go on to making racist remarks, why? I don't get how you think they call me Brown boy considering you know what the racist terms are used against you. Most of you Chinese here are working as wait staff in restaurants in the US according to DOL ( does not include the wonderful massage parlors you people seem to open up). We have no ceilings as the DOL report shows, we of Indian heritage are maybe generalized as techy guys , while you guys are characterized as food delivery boys. :)

    Look at you , you ran away from the 3rd world dump of country and probably labor wonderful country . Are you sure you are here from scientific research ? because it does not take much to research average household income in China and it ain't $16k shanghai bob.
