I'd say I don't have any problems with China becoming the next superpower if they do not support Pakistan.
IMO, some animosity left between the two nations is India's concern of China's backing for Pakistan.
China's Influence --> Mainly Positive ---> India ---> 66
^ that should tell the Chinese ppl something
You can either agree with me or be wrong!

You can see how South Korea's completely torn almost perfectly in half on this matter.
China has the slight edge due to rampant anti-Americanism.
I'm surprised by the Filipinos who have actually felt the power play wrath of the Chinese in the form of the Spratley dispute.
"The majority of respondents were also positive about the communist nation's growing economic power.
But far fewer people wanted to see an increase in its military might. "
With one comes the other. You can't just have one. And China's pretty much declared already that it's going to use its economy to advance its military to become the de facto power in Asia.

I find it odd how allot of people think that China ... won't do anything to the US if they become a more greater Superpower. I'm not bashing China at all (my adobted brother is from there) so I don't have any problems what so ever. But the fact that other country's that will remain nameles, are selling China weapons ... more than they already have. There army has increased and probably will continuly to steadly increase. Plus if China every went to war with the US, you'd think if they absouletly needed to they'd have a draft. And we all know China is over crowded, and they government probably wouldnt care to loose people scince it is over crowded. So If they ever went to war with us ... theyd out number greatly.
Well you might argue we would have say Europe with us, well not always. For example Tony Blair is all for the US ... but the british people(most of them) aren't in sopport for Bush. And Blair is up for rellection soon. And it doesn't look to good for him. And our realtions with say France(my home country) and Germany ..aren't really ..say good. Although they have gotten considerable better. So.. if (IF wich I hope and pray there isn't another war that we shouldn't and don't need) we go to war with China .. the odds would be against us.
And plus since China is communist you'd think they'd also have the power of North Korea, and if it comes down to it I think that they would be able to persuade Cuba as well. Cuba isn't near a world power but there position to the communist's is vitile.
So lets just say Tony Blair doesn't get re-ellected, our realtions get worse with Germany and France, and China decides Bush PO'ed them to the final point. Not only would Iran, North Korea and the majority of foreigns side with China (wich would probably be the case) then .... I don't even want to think that would happen. But on the other side if people sided with us .. still wouldn't it be massive casualties. And China is a communist country .. so wouldn't you think if they were loosing and about to be forced to do something like give up there nuculear capabilities .. don't you think they would result to Nuculear warfare. They already don't care about there people so what if we bombed them back what would they care?
Thats just my 2 cents.

china is over-all friendly and moderate, (seeing lots of chinese here in Vancouver, just too many, and i love their chinese new year celebration, and chinese food)
the only thing disturbing is china's communist totalitirian government, if looking at china's 5000 years of history, it is generally a peaceful and open-minded nation

I see this as a positive thing. Influence goes both ways, this will help everyone see more options and keep everyone more open minded. It is only when a nation that separates itself from the rest of the world and start dreaming how everything ought to go its way that problems start to occur. China is much more open than it used to be, and that's definitely a good thing.
Of course military build-up is not so cool but in China's best interest it is important to have power backing up any option, be it right or wrong.
