    The greatest nations and powers in the world had one thing they all could do at a minimum. Full control over their own lands and many others at a minimum.

    How can anyone take China seriously as a global force and contender, a yet to be 'developed' country, to be remotely worthy of the bluster they project- given they can't even exert full control over Hong Kong and Taiwan?

    Next - great nations self innovate.

    Claim- China is investing in science and technology- But did you know
    China is investing in science and technology but lacks high standards and integrity

    China’s strength
    China understands the need to invest in its innovation engine. In 2008, China spent $66 billion in R&D, the highest amount of any developing nation and the fourth-highest in the world. Consequently, despite the economic downturn which has taken a toll on the R&D budgets of most American companies, patent applications in China jumped by 18.2 percent in 2008 and another 8.5 percent in 2009, the last years for which complete data are available.

    China’s weakness
    Many of the Chinese institutions of higher education receiving governmental R&D grant money experience alarmingly high rates of academic dishonesty. And even when instances of scientific misconduct are exposed, the government agencies responsible for dispersing grant money are given little incentive to pursue or punish such allegations. A lack of adherence to principles of academic integrity prevents many Chinese research institutions from building credible programs and leads to government waste, fraud, and abuse in its R&D spending.

    If this is a general thread about great nations and powers in the world, why is there only discussion of one (China)?
