    This is pretty much bullshit - do you think China is weaker than France or UK? It can alone defeat all France,Italy,Spain and Germany single-handedly.

    Perhaps the person/person that made that list have some sort of bias against China. I would rate China as #2. No question.

    Yes that would make sense to me too and Russia should be higher me thinks.

    Given the budget cuts to the British Military I cannot believe it to be true

    I think these guys are dreaming of the days of yore, of "Rule Britannia" perhaps? IMHO the UK no longer has the reach to be called a "Global Power" and would rank at about the level of France with China definitely in #2 followed by Russia.

    To have Australia & Canada above India seems strange to me also and certainly Japan, which is constitutionally bound to a non aggression, non expeditionary role should be a LOT further down the list.

    I think the guys at European Geostrategy had something in their tea when they made up this list.
