Germany didn't have to surpass the combined economies of Britain (and the former members of the British empire), France and Poland in order to go to war with a serious chance of success.

The expanding Chinese economy, massive population and dictatorial government run by competent people combine to produce the most formidable threat the US has ever faced.
The overweight, spoiled American young men have the worst fighting potential in the history of this country.
