Why China Is Not A Super Power

The Very British Dude has some excellent reasons why China is not a super power and why China will not become a super power anytime in the very near future. He asserts:

"Of course china is a country with VAST potential. But the assumption that China is the next Hegemonic superpower seems lazy to me. Remember they have a population an order of magnitude larger than our own, but have only just passed the UK in total size of the economy (with a little help from our ex-chancellor nobbling ours). They may be catching up fast, but there is still a LONG way to go. Both economically and militarily, China is still dwarfed by the USA."
