Sleeping giant

Posted by Roberto on August 02, 2008 at 10:53

About Napoleon quote regarding China as a sleeping giant that when awakes the wold will tremble ...

Can someone help me, as I always thought Napoleon referred to two giants in their cots, namely America and Russia. Napoleon never mentioned China.
Am I right?
