Just As Obama Planned It --- Intelligence community: U.S. out as sole superpower by 2030

From Politico:

A new report by the intelligence community projects that the United States will no longer be the world's only superpower by 2030.
"In terms of the indices of overall power – GDP, population size, military spending and technological investment – Asia will surpass North America and Europe combined," the report concludes.
“Global Trends 2030: Alternative Worlds" — prepared by the office of the National Intelligence Council of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence — projects that the "unipolar" world that emerged after the fall of the Soviet Union will not continue.
"With the rapid rise of other countries, the 'unipolar moment' is over and no country – whether the U.S., China, or any other country – will be a hegemonic power," the report argues.
"The United States’ relative economic decline vis-a-vis the rising states is inevitable and already occurring,but its future role in the international system is much harder to assess," it argues.

I personally would like to see another nation rise...America was a lot more competitive when the Soviet Union was around.

Wouldn't mind seeing America be competitive again since whenever Americans have been competitive it has been better for the rest of the world.

Having said that, there were people saying that by 2015 - 2020 China will emerge as a super power. I never believed that BS. And I don't believe this BS.

Not saying that these reports are completely false but these reports base their evaluations on previous data and a whole load of assumptions.

For example if, by some miracle, America actually does drill for oil that they have and becomes an over all exporter. That will shift the balance toward America once again. And then if, again by some miracle, America has a decent foreign and trade policy, well...you know where I'm going with this.
