The United States is not a superpower[edit]

I am asking that this link be removed[1] "Kim Richard Nossal. "Lonely Superpower or Unapologetic Hyperpower? Analyzing American Power in the post–Cold War Era", it is outdated, way outdated. You can not have a 1999 source to say the United States is a superpower. If the US is a superpower then it needs current acedemic sources to state it is a superpower. The url is http://post.queensu.ca/~nossalk/papers/hyperpower.htm

I cannot find new sources stating the US is a superpower if so I would replace this 1999 with something newer.--62.73.7.79 (talk) 07:25, 10 February 2014 (UTC)

[2] Indirectly, the source said that US is only superpower, and until 2030(prediction) will be the sole superpower. OccultZone (Talk) 07:30, 10 February 2014 (UTC)
That's not an acedemic source, that's a news article blog. Notice you can comment on the bottom on the source below like a blog. If you read the url it says http://security.blogs.cnn.com/2012/12/10/19098 blogs on the url. I am not putting you down on your source, I am just saying it's not an acedemic source.--62.73.7.79 (talk) 07:44, 10 February 2014 (UTC)
Stop POV pushing 62.73.7.79. Anyway, there are absolute tons of academic sources which deal with the topic of the USA as a Superpower. I have listed one here: From Colony to Superpower: U.S. Foreign Relations since 1776, published 2008, by Professor George C. Herring (Professor of of History at Kentucky University). The last chapter describes the USA as a "Hyperpower". 12:59, Antiochus the Great 10 February 2014 (UTC)
@Antiochus the Great:, I can smell anti-americanism from 62.73.7.79. OccultZone (Talk) 17:05, 10 February 2014 (UTC)

Edit request on 10th February 2014[edit]

  1. There are about 3 dead links, check[3], They should be tagged.
  2. On lead, "Alice Lyman Miller" should be wikilinked with Alice L. Miller. OccultZone (Talk) 07:45, 10 February 2014 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done. One deadlink (ref. 14) was already marked, the other two flags were both for ref. 13, and I have tagged that. JohnCD (talk) 17:31, 10 February 2014 (UTC)
