A friend forwarded me this link.
I can think of four characters from the Mahabharata that form a nice analogy (assuming a similar situation did take place back then). It is up to you to match them up (and no, Shakuni is NOT Uncle Sam)!
1. USA a. Yudhishthira 2. China b. Veda Vyasa* 3. India c. Shakuni 4. Pakistan d. Duryodhana
* – I toyed with the idea of using Bheeshma, Drona, Dhritarashtra, Krishna, Balarama etc. before settling on Vyasa.
