It's indisputable that the United States is the most power military and economic force in human history.

But I'd say on balance of achievements it's about equal. We bought civilization to the world, US have only bought it bombs, CIA coups and threats of economic sanctions to allies.

We did some bad shit occasionally, but that's all people outside of Britain and France chose to remember. When the time of America passes, how will history remember them I wonder?

>>53184651
in terms public excitement about pure scientific research and exploration, the US space program's decline has been pretty bad.

in terms of productivity, there hasn't been a significant decline. A lot of the work has shifted from NASA to the USAF, and is therefore out of the public eye. The USA's space budget (about $40 billion) exceeded the rest of the worlds space budget combined in 2014. Congress will increase NASA's budget by $19.3 billion in the 2016 fiscal year.

The biggest rival during Britain's Imperial Century was the Russian Empire

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Great_Game

It's not that well-known today, mostly because Britain and Russia came to an agreement in 1907. But for a long time the Russian Empire threatened British India and was trying to destabilise it. That was the Great Game, the first Western wars in Afghanistan, and all of that.

Of course the Russian Empire was quite backwards and fell apart when it tried to fight its first big war, but at the time the Russians were our biggest rival.
>>
>>53186346
>that pic
noice

In any case, I'd say Afghanistan was won by the British in the sense that you eventually controlled their foreign policy and kept Russia from creeping up (which they were doing from the North).

Of course you also have the Crimean War were you stomped Russia and prevented them from capturing pretty much every Ottoman territory.

Are there any other conflicts? Perhaps ones that the Russians won?

Literally the entire clusterfuck that is the middle east and the rise of Islamic Extremism can be tied back to Britain just drawing arbitrary borders throughout the place and mixing a bunch of ethnic groups with varying degrees of power in with one another.

Africa too, although the French, Belgians, and other European nations share blame for how that's turned out.
>>
>>53186481
Well in general military terms the Russian Empire was successful at expanding. It was huge (see pic), they won lots of Central Asia and also Ottoman territory. I don't think they had much success against Britain, although to be fair a lot of it was proxy wars in Central Asia. But they did make British governments very nervous about the threat to India.
>>
>>53186826
You blame the arbitrary middle-eastern borders solely on Britain, but the Sykes-Picot Agreement was French and British. Please tone down your anti-British bias.
>>
If Britain had stayed out of much of the napoleonic wars like the US did for WWI and WWII while the rest of Europe burned would they have been as absolutely dominant as America was post-WWII?
>>
>>53186835

It was huge 2bh but the you mostly cared about protecting India from Russia which you did, and curbing their imperialism where it was important (i.e. keeping the Ottomans alive).

I'd say it was a decisive British victory.
>>
>>53187664
If we stayed out of the Napoleonic Wars, the French would have won them. The superiority of the Royal Navy is why Napoleon felt it necessary to set up the Continental System, and invade Russia when they violated it, sending French power into permanent decline and allowing Britain to establish its second, much bigger, Empire.
>>
>>53187768
Well the nice thing about the Great Game is that it was resolved diplomatically, with the Anglo-Russian Entente
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anglo-Russian_Entente

Although who knows if that would have lasted if the First World War didn't happen. But yes, the most important thing was to protect India and Britain managed to do that.

>>53188087

It's more beneficial for us to have good relations with China. If the UK is going to build up power again, it needs to win more trade in the Asia-Pacific. Our military is too small to do that coercively, and to make our military larger again we need a stronger economy.

That is one thing our government understands. It's been too long since we had a government which understood basic long-term strategy.

See, Australia has been taking a similar approach since the '70's, trying to work closely with China as it begins to exceed countries like the U.S. and Russia in terms of raw power, the problem is that by creating a "deeper partnership" with China you start to rely on it, and that's the biggest fault any country can make. If war breaks out between the U.K. and China, or relations breakdown, it'll affect the U.K. more than it would China.

China makes a small % of our total trade with other countries. If we triple our trade with China, it will still be small. But there are two big advantages we have compared to Australia

1) We are in the EU. China needs access to the EU, it's China's biggest trading partner and more benign from China's POV than the USA. As one of the largest EU economies, we are both more valuable to China (and the US for that matter) and as part of a huge Single Market, we can get better trade deals with China than countries which aren't part of such a trading bloc

2) China can get natural resources from many countries. But the UK's financial and legal services are more exclusive (they want Renminbi to be a global currency, the route lies through London), and the UK's world respected infrastructure regulation combined with the openness of the economy makes it an ideal place for China to invest and showcase its big ticket infrastructure exports.

My second point is important because China has committed to HUGE projects in the UK, especially the nuclear power stations, which they are very eager to export to other countries.

This means China has a vested interest in keeping good relations with the UK. It's not like buying up residential property. China has committed billions and billions into these projects, it will only pay off if the relationship is stable.

Yeah, they were in a bad state, but they were the most civilized country for most of human history, the only ones who equalled Rome during its heyday. And their sense of entitlement and pride showed that and is beginning to show again. It's not by accident that today they call it the century of humiliations as during all the other centuries they were the ones who could afford to do the humiliating.

Tbf OP said "at their height", which for Britain was the 19th century.

Spain was a rival much earlier, before the UK was formed in 1707
France was defeated when the Empire was still tiny

Germany and Russia are fair game. I posted about Russia earlier. Germany became an issue when Britain had already started to get weak and began its decline, but I guess they still count.

That's wrong. France remained a Great Power pretty much up until the Second World War and the decolonization.
>>
>>53192327
China- See Boxer Rebellion and Japan's imperialistic projects in East Asia prior and during WWII.
India- Apparently the Northern Kingdoms were repeatedly raided by mongol hordes during their heyday. The Indian subcontinent was never unified until the British colonization period.
Russia- Was constantly raided by steppe hordes, Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth.

>>53194890
I guess the Mongol Horde at it's height would be the best contestant in that regard, as it successfully subjugated China and Rus' (political entity precursor to the Russian Empire), they were repelled at India though.

Imperial Japan was somewhat close to achieve that though, after Port Arthur their chain of victories against Russia was only broken after the Battle of Khalkhin Gol; China was under their control and they were just short of reaching India, having stopped at Burma.

I would say at their peaks the UK was more powerful

They're difficult to compare because the worlds they ruled were so different, which is quite shocking when you realise they both hit their peaks in the same century

The best thing about having back to back UK Empire and American cultural and economic Empires is English has been set in stone as the lingua franca and that won't change for a VERY long time, If ever.

Exactly. The UK's relative position is strengthened when the likes of China, India and others get stronger. Personally I don't think they have it in them to become a proper superpower, but they will be an important great power and challenge the US on various issues.

From our POV it's better to have multiple strong powers competing rather than a single dominant power.

The US foreign policy idea of being a "leader" in global affairs has backfired immensely.

America needs to prioritize bettering itself, and keeping away from foreign conflicts that further destroy us.

Yep, none of our allies truly have our backs, and some of them (Turkey) can't be trusted.

We have no reason to antagonize Russia as some part of "Western obligation". We can work together with them as partners on certain issues, obviously we won't agree on everything.

Well there are pros and cons, for you and us. From your POV there are clear advantages to containing China and dominating various international systems, but the downside is all the fallout if containment fails. You also have to consider all the US allies in that region. Once they sense weakness, they'll put less importance in their relationship with the US and that will hurt you. Alternatively, if you fully commit to defending them and overextend, it could draw you into an expensive conflict that the American public don't have the stomach for.

From the UK's POV, a world with the US as sole superpower means stability, and it's a world in which we thrive as US ideals of free trade, liberalism, capitalism, are also British ideals. A multi-polar world is less stable and more dangerous, but it also holds more opportunity for a country like the UK if we feel ambitious, and moreover it will force us to beef up defence spending and be more assertive. The current government has already made it explicit that the increasing instability means the UK should be more assertive and bold.

>what was the British Empire
The British Empire was what happened after Britain's major rivals exhausted themselves with war, and Britain combined innovation, clever diplomacy and military skill to outmanoeuvre larger more powerful countries.

Consider that the *vast majority* of soldiers who policed the British Empire were not British.

I'm not opposed to helping Asian allies like Singapore, Japan, or even Vietnam that welcome US influence in the region.

I think the US should stop defending South Korea. The relationship doesn't sound mutually beneficial, and only takes more unnecessary funds from our coffers.

We can easily do that from Japan though. Without having to get dragged into a war in case North Korea ever starts something.
>>
>>53202550
Japan is obviously the better choice, but it's still better to have more options than less. You're also still technically bound to protect South Korea due to them *technically* still being at War with Best Korea.

>>53202409

If the US isn't there, then there will be Chinese influence. That's what I was saying earlier. You have to choose between accepting less influence in the region, or accepting that you might be drawn into big expensive wars

We're strong through sheer economic force

I think we are more "powerful" at our height in terms of relative strength but I like how the British Empire ruled worldwide during a time of low space-time convergence, which made administration very difficult, with low base resources and economy themselves, and through shrewd geopolitical strategy in playing everyone against each other (read: perfidious).

We aren't a very interesting superpower. Of course maybe that's just the nature of the modern, globalized world.
