Creating the United States of Asia

Would this be a nice vision? It took Europe nearly 50 years to get to where they are today - united. And still, they still fight about integration issues, but these are just simple issues, considering the major unification that took place a couple of years back.

Will there be an unified Asia, some time in the future? "The groundbreaking East Asia Summit could pave the way for the creation of a permanent East Asian community, the equivalent of the European Union or, in its initial stages at least, the former European Economic Community."

Why not? The chances are there, since the world is no longer simply divided into two major blocks.

Challenges would be numerous - from geographical divisions - think: the many islands and the spread of the overall area -, to different religions, different stages of the economy, and last, but not least, who would take the economic leadership? India? Japan? China? Both countries are economic powerhouses, but they frequently have problems with each other. Anyway, those can be overcome, so yeah, let's look forward to an United States of Asia. Imagine the economic power. Imagine the consumer strength! Isn't it fascinating?

May be our grand-children will be able to enjoy it, in about 20, 30 or 40 years.
