I agree with sharing of supremacy.

More I would say: in 2050, world is divided by a couple of big power centers:

USA dominated N/S.America's.
Russia dominates Russia.
EU dominates Europe
China dominates E/S.Asia

All the above "share" M.East and Africa.

By note: sorry no offence to M.East, if Arabs cannot get united, then they will stay weak in world power games.

Hey I like this make up the future game. Let me try.
In the year 2510 I think Mongolia will rise up and overthrow the Chinese invaders and unite with Nepal, Burkina Faso, Tibet, and Taiwan. A Bill Gates' descendant will have all the money on earth and he'll hire the Sultan of Brunei as a chauffeur. The Inuit people will unite with the Norse and will have the greatest naval power. The US will be divided among the native people. Israel will invent a way to melt glaciers to transform the desert into the bigest food producing region on the planet. Africa will be transformed into a giant game preserve and the Gates family will pay billions to have the old Sultan drive them around to see the wildlife.
In Europe the Celts will once again rule Scotland. The Greeks will find ancient source of power of Atlantis and Europe will rise to the level of the great Atlantean culture. Australia will rule the entire Southern hemisphere and it will produce most of the beer for the earth's people. The U.N. will be replaced by the Irish. They will keep the peace on the planet with mandatory music and parties.
India will discover a new source of energy conversion will use a trash to energy conversion system which will supply Asia with endless energy. Russia will control the weather on earth supplying water and sunshine where needed or wanted.
The one fly in the ointment will be that Disney will control all the non peacekeeping entertainment for the planet. Well, no world is perfect.
Whew that was fun, thanks for letting me play

Nice buffer, they would destroy their army trying to do that.

India and Pakistan? They could fight China to a stand still and they have nukes too and I doubt either one would mind nuking China if they are on the defensive.

In reality I really do not see the US falling anytime soon. I see other countries standing by us and leading, India and China for instance. The reason I do not see this is that civilazations usually spend a good 500 to 1000 years rotating in and out of the top spot. Russia is gonna come back soon, probably in a few decades IMO. Besides, if you look at our history, you see that when it looks like we are at our worst we pull up. We already had our HUGE crash (1929 to 1936 or 37), in those years we turned from an industrial super power to a third world country. I do not see us cashing in the chips just yet. I also think it could be possible that Germany and Japan could be making a serious comeback (Not to do wrong though). The US economy is changing, in a few years (I give it 8 to 12) everything will be alright and things will be just peachy again. One day we will rotate to a lower spot, but we will come back again. That is just the way the cycle goes. I say the big candidates for coming world power are China and India with Germany, Russia, and Japan a little farther down the line.

Actually there are some signs of cracks forming in terms of the US's power. These are usually social, and though more subtle, it is in the end, failing in this area that leads to a downfall.
However we'll just see if it's just a thing of the moment or if it really is a sign of what's to come.

As far as China's dominance of SE Asia -- they need to break some very self-destructive trend. The greatest of these is their tendency to threaten certain other countries (Japan) and non-countries (Taiwan). There is a certain degree of the same behavior directed at ALL of their neighbors. So long as China continues to behave that way, they will only alienate themselves with other nations in the region. Insofar as they can and have curbed such tendencies, it has and will always pay off for them.

China can make itself central to SE Asia, or it can make itself into the terrifying juggernaut that everybody else forges alliances to defend against. Being the more friendly, more central nation -- that's truly the more powerful choice.

I think China is figuring this out, but not at all with regards to Taiwan or Japan. We'll see how it goes of course.

Yes the USA is going to decline, but not in any big hurry.

I'd call the "fall of the US" wishful thinking on the part of the Asian posters here. You wanna talk about "cracks"? Just look at Tiennamon Square if your county's thought police haven't already erased it from existence. Freedom may lapse but it will never die. The only time that the US will cease to be is when liberty has come to all peoples throughout the world and there is a world government precluding the need for national governments. In otherwords, not anytime soon.
