China may soon be able to take Taiwan by a combination of enticements and threat. That will occur after Taiwanese March 2008 presidential elections. Just as Hitler used the 1936 Berlin Olympics to entrench himself in power, such an event would allow China to bring Taiwan back into the fold. China takes Taiwan back into the fold by "peaceful" means and America can do nothing. China will soon after take over Japanese sea lanes.
Will China be the next super power?
China continues to become more powerful but natural world changes and global disasters prevent China from dominating in the way a "super power" could.
Will the Chinese currency be the next dollar?
Most definitely not.
