I can't see them being a superpower anytime in the near future, but they are doing very good in economically and militarilly like many others have already stated. Plus they make some awesome cars!

i'd say Germany's industry is more geared toward economy, not military. every nation has a certain amount of military, and the recently-unified Germany still needs to gather itself in all respects..

Weapon limitations does not neccesarily means that Germany cannot become a superpower. There are economic factors as well.
Yeah but if you read my post i said "Military wise" .

According to this Armed forces database site the German's military quality is 64, which is the 2nd best behind Britain with 77. They also have the 4th most land power in Europe.

I think one of the benifitis of the German system is that unlike alot of liberal democracies they've managed to motivate their population. The amount of Germans with a university degree is extremely high, and their technical programs are second to none. They also have a national service program, which invovled two years of time serving the state in some way (I'm probly horribly off on this, so any germans feel free to correct me). Both of these factors mean that the German populationis fit, educated, and are motivated to take part in the affairs of their country.

I'm not an expert or a native of Germany, but this is what i know of it.

Germany has an extremely rigorous school system, if you fall behind in work, you go to a lower school at graduation. there's many degrees of school, and nobody but the normal (middle-low class) people want to go to the Realeschule (translation: real school, they teach professions like farming and fishing there) and only the highest go to the Gymnasium, equivalent to pre-Ivy League in US. or close.

I dont wont to get into the economic side, since i dont know much about it..But the Germans are among the nationsthat i regurd as natural born soldiers. its a country with a vast military harritage. the german army is armed with some of the best weapons in the world...the reason i say they are not a superpower is that their is only one superpower right now...

Define this, define that.

I'll give you a hint. What is the USSR? What is the United States of America?
