Is the united states still most powerful country?
It’s the most powerful country that we know of, but other countries (especially China and Russia) tend to hide their light under a bushel. Whereas Bush will stand there and say “We’re great, because we’ve got this many soldiers, this much money and this much influence”, both Putin / Medvedev and the inscrutable Chinese government will say they are not interested in such trivial foreign affairs (whilst quietly twisting arms behind backs of course).
Yes it is and it will be for quite a while. Most POWERFUL in the world for sure but not in economy and the way we can keep that up is by finding our own natural gas and not depending on other countries for oil. Also we need to keep some troops in Iraq or else it will go crazy there and gas will raise to 10 bucks a gallon. It’ll take a 10 or so years for the U.S to be the best by a lot again. I miss it when it was.
