well as a pakistani the only answer is saying "YES SIR" or in a more desi format " Haazir Janaab " will solve the problem.

Default All Super Powers not 4ever

I dont think v are capable of or need to control or contain a super-power.However,if we look into history,no super-power has ever remained eternally so till date.In recent history of 17th to 20th century, how many great powers came and crumbled,the great powers on whose colonies the sun never set.

Some great powers crumbled down due to internal factors like Soviet Union and others due to exhaustion of their resources in the face of other powerful enemies i.e Hitler's Germany.If we look in this perspective then we see that already the US who has been sole super-power only for over a decade is getting weaker day by day both internally and externally.Economically it has over 200 billion dollars trade deficit annually only with China.The land of the equality of opportunies is facing worst ever gap between haves and have-nots within itself in recent days.Hence labour protests etc have balooned up.While Militarily it has yet to hunt few fugitives most wanted despite being on the ground where they are hiding.

In the present day global politico-economic scenario which is changing fast each second and in this super-atom age,its really very very difficult to sustain the title of sole super power for say 30/40 years.

Even many Americans today believe that they were far far better when they were holding to "Isolation Policy" till Ist world war.In nutshell I believe that We dont need to do anything to control a super-power but have to wait when it itself crumbles down like a big elephant who can't even hold itself standing firm on the ground.

Ms.Hina you said that Japan after being bombed has now emerged as a big power technologically and economically.On the other hand you should know that America herself let Japan emerge as a technology and economy power in order to make it counter-heavyweight to China.Even today it has thousands of US soldiers and few bases there.The Japanese got first constitution even drafted by American General Eisenhower in 1945 after her surrender.

The US still wants Japan to take over particularly Asian markets from China.Only a decade back,we felt pride in having Japanese technology devices and see how Chinese goods have now flooded and are in demand in almost all third world countries where lies the lowest figures of Purchasing power parity.China is of course playing a great part in turning the world from geo-strategic issues and conflicts to geo-economic and fair-competitive issues and thats why its there and becoming more and more stronger day by day.Hope you got the point.
Maa salam

US is the superpower but current scenerio shows that soon China would be the world power. I am not saying that let us wait for the good times but at least we can hope that things will change one day or another. No super power is forever.

Youir query is that ho we can stop US. So let me say this bluntly that we cannot stop US coz we rely on US in a sense. Can you say nah to US for anything that it is asking for??? I think the game is in the hands of US and they are playing all of their cards close to their chest. So we can only wait and wath that US had to leave the hot seat of superpower soon.

Regards

Assalam u Alaikum.
well now a days US is like a bull (the one you see in the Spanish bull fights) trying to knock everyone out comming in its way. so the only way to control the bull, is to kill the bull. but so far there not even a single Torero around. all we can do is wait and see what happens.

My two bits...

As said in a movie, to take down a dictator you have cut off its resouces.
We cant simply wipe out US off the map. Strike it where it hurts. I dont claim to have a thorough understanding of IR affairs....but I think other countries can beat US in ceratin areas...hurt it economically, eg.
Arab countries are major oil-producers. What if they refuse to give oil to US?
Global lectronics market is led by Japan and Korea. They beat US on their own turfs....
Standing up to a bully takes courage and inner strength & confidence. It will take atleast 50 years for US to be 'stopped'.

@ impossible
US is the superpower but current scenerio shows that soon China would be the world power

I challenge ur statement, Current scenerio shows that Chia is not interested 2 b a super-power.
Super-power has 2 powers...

1) Hard Power
2) Soft Power

Hard Power contains 2 aspects i.e. Military and Economic supremacy...... and we hav current statistics that 4m military point of view..... China is 40 years behind US.
Senior war-weapon specialist say that if US stops 2 invest on her Weapons 2 upgrade them and China invests 3 times than current investment...... US has no threat after 15 years 4m China on military grounds.
We know that super-powers do not fight 2 each-other but military supremacy and permanent upgrading is necessirily required.

China has improved her economy in last few years on sound basis. She has the largest population of the world and use her bi-lateral trade relations as a diplomatic threat 2 her partener.

But US has no threat 2 b beaten by China on economic grounds. Coz senior economists say that If china grows her economy with recent pace, she will b 2nd powerful economy behind US in 2015.

Soft-power has the areas like ....
1) taking interests 2 resolve the issues of smaller states
2) taking interest in playing at global level
3) Media-ruling etc

US left no space 4 any other power in above fields. China,itslf, is taking no interest in playing politics at global level. She is a regional player, not interested 2 improve her military strength and focusses on bi-lateral or tri-lateral trade relations.

The most important thing which should b kept in mind that China, no doubt, can b a threat 4 US coz US has wrongly estimated in Iraq war as....

155,000 troops
250 Billion Dollars

that estimation proves wrong and US has increased upto.......

550,000 troops
has spent 450 billion dollars (Leading economists predict that US will hav 2 spend 1-2 trillion dollars on this "Mission accomplished" compaign of Bush)

These things can go in favour of china so US has secured nuclear partenership with India to bound china.
