In this century global political map has changed. China is a power and BRIC new bloc is about to make clout on global affairs.
It is true, USA is a super power but her over dependence on external sources from oil, trade, funding(Chinese purchase US bonds), weakened
Multi-polar world is in making but US is again lucky that in entire Continent America , no competitor ,militarily and economically. Europe and Japan, Korea are US allies. Russia and Brazil are selling their natural resources and India and China are looking for external resources to run their economic show.
US fundamentals are very strong , so why worry of third war? Big fish will swallow small fish,who can stop?
If world survives at mercy of US then we do.
