US is not 'declining'. They are SURGING in ways that the world has not seen yet.We'll see, China is still rising fast and US same speed but declining, we'll see where China and US will be at in the next 5-10 years, Indian cheerleaders don't have to be so eager to make Indian style predictions now, lol..
1) You're talking about going to the moon? They're going to mars, built spaceships, have rockets that return and land on their own.
2) The whole world was talking about 'oil wars'. They reinvented the whole goddamn thing and made electric vehicles the vogue. Now they're moving to make aviation all electric (I don't even know what the hell it means)
3) Do you understand the implications of the vaccine moderna is developing for COVID? If it turns out to be succesful, three average tankers worth of that thing is enough to vaccinate the whole goddamn planet
4) They have already started test flights of their sixth gen fighter
This is not 'lead'. This is something else- they're not even bothering to tell the world how far ahead they are.
