China is powerful, but not the strongest nation at least not now. Pro will try to disprove this.
Rules:
1. No biased voters.
2. Nothing inappropriate.
3. Forfeits will count against you.
4. Wikipedia is valid source unless my sources disprove it which I believe are more reliable.
5. Don't take nuclear weapons into account to make this more fair
6. Pro will have to prove that China is the strongest nation without accounting allies.

nation: a large area of land that is controlled by its own government

This nation must be recognized by the UN and must exist today meaning no ISIS, Yugoslavia etc.

Con

I thank my opponent for accepting.
My Arguments will show how the USA or Russia are better.
Now I will start off with several points.
1. www.globalfirepower.com In here it states China is the third strongest nation.
2. http://www.military-today.com... China has merely the tenth best aircraft.
3. http://www.military-today.com... Once again China merely holds tenth place.
4. http://www.globalfirepower.com... China doesn't have as many aircraft as China or Russia.
5. http://www.globalfirepower.com... Russia has more tanks.
6. http://nationalinterest.org... America holds first with best navies for this, while China 2, Russia third.
7. http://www.military-today.com... Holds a mere fourth place for best aircraft carriers.
8. http://www.military-today.com... Show me where China has even a place here.
9. http://www.military-today.com... China holds 7th place here compared to the places America and Russia have.
10. http://www.military-today.com... China holds 5th while America has 4th and Russia has 6th
11. http://www.globalfirepower.com... China holds 15th place here.
12. http://www.military-today.com... China isn't on here.
13. http://www.globalfirepower.com... Russia and America beat them here.
14. http://www.globalfirepower.com... Russia wins in MLRS with America trailing behind China for once.
15. http://www.globalfirepower.com... America dwarfs them here.
16. Russia's cyber warfare capabilities are near equal to China's. Russia has the second-best electronic warfare capabilities (next to Japan, India, and America, which are tied). Russia also has good defense measures.

Conclusion from arguments.
In almost everything Russia and America beat China or almost beat them. My opponent will have to try to prove after all these sources that China is the stronger than Russia and America.

My opponent better be a VERY good debater to try to show both America and Russia are not better than China. Russia's and America's strength are pretty close when you take in all aspects.

Elord I was joking when I said Korea because of his name... and his profile picture.

I don't see why allies aren't included. A countries position in the international community is extremely important in judging how powerful a country is.
