for the yes but not so harsh:
-we're in the modern age and it's more likely to "pass on" the power rather then end in a war
-Countries like China and Japan are having the same (or bigger) economical boom that america had back in the 50's( we can expect them to reach and surpass american economical supremacy in less the 30 years)
-America didn't came up with a new economical idea since the "e-commerce" (huge flop!)
