Also, India has more Muslims than all of ME combined and Muslims are only about 20% of India's population.
Indonesia is the largest Muslim nation in the world in terms of population.

And more English speakers in China and India than English speakers in the USA.
My local high schools offer Mandarin. Does yours?

I was surprised at where the largest cities were.  Jakarta is #2 in the world.  Karachi, Pakistan is larger than New York.  Cairo is larger than Greater Los Angeles.

You said it.  Now either back it up or retract it.

Except Moscow and Cairo, no other urban areas in Europe, Africa, or in the Arab world made it into the top 20.

Twelve of the top 20 urban areas are in Asia.

World population growth (one dot = one million people)

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9_9SutNmfFk" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9_9SutNmfFk</a>

Best to start at about 5:00 (from about 1630 A.D.)

There is plenty of room 50 miles north of the USA border.   There is plenty of room in Nevada, Montana, North Dakota and Wyoming.      Now when one looks at Las Vegas, built in the middle of the desert that proves that Nevada is wide open for development.
