Yes, the US is the most powerful country in the world, whether you measure it politically, economically, militarily, or culturally. China or India could become more powerful, yes. It would take a while. It's unlikely that America will stay at the top forever. yeah for sure its on the top right now.... but we really dont know what the future holds...... Every great nation/civilization ... went throught a decline and eventually broke down into pieces .... take a look at history... none of the great civilizations in teh past .. stayed on top.... Romans/british/russians/greeks... turkish... they all faught brakely .. they all got their glory but the end was harsh.... USA has been a great power since world war 2 upto the present... but this created enemies for this country... I just hope we dont go through world war 3... :) nobody really knows what the future holds ..... yeah usa is great and powerful.. but i believe that bush is pushing our country upto its limits
