Japan is just hella mad after WWII. Europe has the best white people? Now listen here ****** , have you even been to the Deep South?

I know it's a joke and all but I feel that I should point out that Japan is extremely ashamed of WWII, they're mad at themselves.

I can understand that feeling. But on the bright side of losing the war, they formed a close military and trade alliance with the United States that would in turn help to rebuild their country, provide the protection of the world's superpower, and aid in growing the economy of Japan to a level far beyond its former limitations. While I can't speak for the Japanese people, from an objective standpoint it seems that while the loss of life throughout the war and the devastation from the nuclear weapons was immense and horrific, the nation of Japan and its future generations have benefited greatly from their loss to the United States.

"The world's superpower"? Are you implying that the US is the only superpower in the world?

The US is the only current superpower.
The BRIC countries are still only potential superpowers.

Not the only, there's a few, which can be seen at the G8 summits and things, but their definitely the biggest.

Well, following World War II, it took the role as a world superpower along with the Soviet Union in many aspects including economy, technology, and military strength. While the Soviet Union dissolved in the 90's, the United States continued to grow in those three aspects. While other nations like China are growing at an accelerated rate and becoming huge in global politics and economics, the United States still holds the role as the largest consumer nation in the world, the nation with the largest GDP in the world, and the most advanced and largest military in the world, trumping the next 8 largest armies combined. So in essence, it is not the world's only influence in factor in world politics and economics, but objectively, there exists no nation that can rival the United States.

uhh no america does not have the largest army by manpower. china does, then america, then india(the difference between usa and india is bout 200,000). what america has is the largest quantity of guns. and thats why they are dominating right now. how ever time magazine has assumed that china will be spending double of what america spends on their army by the year 2030. better check up on your mandarin.

Kid, I don't think you understand the difference between standing army, and potential army. Of course China has the largest potential army because they can just order every able bodied citizen to throw themselves onto the front line like a herd of sheep to act like cannon fodder. Two words. Korean War. The US has the largest standing army that actually goes around and does stuff. We have the most guns, yes, but do you see us brandishing AK-47's as our main weapon of choice? Perhaps not. So Time Magazine has assumed they would be spending more on their army by 2030. Hmm, yes I am currently very afraid of their one aircraft carrier that took them how long to produce? I guess you could call throwing money at factories and other nations for Vietnam Era weapons military spending. But anyways, I'm sure their growing fleet of MIG's will pose a serious threat in the coming years. We had better prepare our flak cannons and Mustangs for some serious dogfighting. But seriously, I don't think the classic Chinese cannon fodder technique works in modern day warfare. There's just too many cannons, and not nearly enough fodder. I see your point, though, noting that I should check up on my Mandarin. Hmm, well you see I don't really think that the majority of China being farmers or laborers will enlighten me through their infinite knowledge and wisdom that I can only obtain by knowing their language. Tough luck on that one, I guess.

Again no china has the largest standing army, while america comes in second.
and i didn't say that America has useless weapons. the reason the states are currently dominating is cause of their weapons technology, they have the best weapons and the largest financing behind their military.

And i dont know where you got this cannon fodder theory from. what makes you think the Chinese are going to be so stupid. and what makes you think china are gonna WW2 era weapons. they are updating their system. as are almost all superpowers.
And as for their strategy remember the art of war was written by sun tzu the Chinese general, these philosophy's in the book are employed by the American military. so trust me when i say that the Chinese are not outdated in anyway. and when the time comes round that the Chinese are pumping more money into their military their weapons technology may surpass the Americans and maybe the Europeans.

you sir are seriously underestimating the Chinese.
