You are talking in archiac 20th century jargon while we are now in the 21st century, entirely new playing field. This is NOT the time of single nations controlling economics but the age of treaties and association, TPP, ASEAN, and other economic groupings. This is the reason for SCO and Beijing realises this. It's not a case of China over the United States or a competition between Germany and France. It's an era of cooperation over competition, no more an era of who is better or best but who is the best cooperator.

Some in China got brain to get it. There are entrepreneurial people on both sides of the Pacific as there are both sides of Atlantic. Money making makes strange bedfellows. Case in point, oil pipeline being built from Kazakhstan through muslim Afghanistan and Pakistan into Hindu India. Another case in point, oil pipeline from Vyborg, Russia under the Baltic Sea to Germany. 70 years ago, Germany and Russia fighting each other, today economic partners. Magnifique!!!

Lol, its not about obsolete jargon, but a capability that the US no longer posses, and a capability that China is gathering. And if you really believe in cooperation over competition, then good luck.

Saudis embrace China in new polygamy
By Joshua Jacobs

Prince Bandar bin Sultan, the former ambassador Saudi ambassador to the United States once called the US-Saudi relationship a "Catholic marriage". When the remark was uttered in the 1990s it was a view common in both Riyadh and Washington. The US-Saudi alliance had just capped two major


victories, one over Saddam's Iraq and the other over the Soviets in Afghanistan.

That was an era of good feeling, so much so that American officials took to calling the Saudi envoy "Bandar the Magnificent". However as the past decade has shown in glaring detail, it was not a lasting sentiment. The September 11 attacks can be easily identified as the demarcating line in the US-Saudi relationship. Following the identification of 15 of the 19 hijackers, and the mastermind Osama bin Laden, as Saudi nationals, a hitherto unheard of level of US attention was turned on the sensitive topics of Saudi society and domestic political reform.

The friction resulting from this was compounded by the expanding "war on terror", disagreements over Palestinian policy, and finally and perhaps most severely the decision by the George W Bush administration to invade Iraq. It was the culmination of these factors that led an exasperated Prince Saud al-Faisal to amend his brothers remarks to state that the US-Saudi relationship was not a "Catholic marriage" but in fact a "Muslim marriage".
