How about sports? Does it have any impact?

I reckon it is all about power and who has the biggest say? Hu or Obama.

Sports can be one of them too, though not hugely significant, it does have an impact, thanks for the comment.

Power is one of them. Hegemony. Thanks for the comment.

maybe nuke weapons play a part as well u think?

Eagle said...

Nuclear weapons are a show of force from nations. Could be for peaceful, energy purposes or could be for destructive and aggressive purposes. The world is trying to proliferate nuclear weapons, but both US and China do have these weapons. The issues behind nuclear weapons are very complicated. Hard to pinpoint exactly and accurately how the 2 countries are handling this.
