    Really?
    1 United States 682.0 $Bn 4.4 % GDP
    2 China 166.0 $Bn 2.0 % GDP

    Wiki.

    Since when is 166 greater than 682?
    Plus there's the fact the US tends to be "cutting-edge" military, China (although working hard to catch up) isn't.

    Which ever countries media can say they are the best would always win out. It seems many countries media are always saying theirs is better than the other but few ever back up their statements. Russia has as many things that it could say it was "better" than other countries but again this is all based on speculation by the media who beat us into the ground with such nonsense. Who cares which is better and what are they better at and who is better at other things like not making weapons but trying to make peace instead of war?

    Better at what? By 'more powerful' are you referring to military or economic power? The US has by far the larger economy, despite having only one-fourth as many people. We are saddled with huge debts and our balance of payments on that debt will be a problem for years. But we CAN catch up to the debt if we put a hold on adding to national debt creators. We might have to do things like add a national sales tax, but the point is we have the capacity to catch up. China hopes we don't. China has the world's largest socialist system and it is crippling their productivity. They cannot produce as efficiently as we do. Cheaper, yes, because they pay their workers one-tenth what an American worker gets for the same work. As for military power, China is in a very bad position strategically speaking. They have zero force projection capability and I would not care to be a commander of a Chinese warship stationed on China's only coastline.

    China's military is technologically behind, but what it lacks in quality it can make up for in quantity. If they were to retool all the unused factories (in the bad economy) and start cranking out low quality boats, planes and tanks, we'd have a lot of targets to shoot.

    Our toys are better, but the ammunition for a lot of it costs a friggin' fortune.

    However the 1 Child policy has put China in a position where all out war would be unthinkable. Too many of those soldiers are the "only son" in their family. The public outrage would be overwhelming if they started taking heavy casualties.
