WE can all get along. It's our stupid, greedy, thug governments that like to mix things up. Tho I will admit- WE are the dimwits who keep voting them in.

I was reading an article a while back, and If I can find it again I'll link it, that suggested if a war broke out between the US and China, it would be far easier for China to punish America's Asian allies than try any kind of attacks against US soil.
That only makes me worry about the situation more. Wouldn't Australia stand out as a prime target?
As good as no Navy, an aging Airforce and total population probably smaller than China's military alone.
Like Japan did in WW2, they could just cruise around North of us and strike at will. Cities like Darwin would take a pounding (again).
I also read that China lacks much in the way of invasion transport. But could they possibly use ships / landing craft etc of an allied nation to reach us?

Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao had said Friday he was concerned about the safety of the estimated $1 trillion his country has invested in U.S. government debt. China is Washington's biggest foreign creditor, and Obama's administration is counting on the Chinese to help pay for the $787 billion economic stimulus package by buying U.S. bonds.

"Hit China's major economic centres, all located on its east coast, take out some major military installations.
Bam, China taken care of."
How about a "whammy!" or a "go bonzo!" Honesty, you make it sound like a cake-walk, and what have we learned from "cake-walks"? Eh? I am thinking of a character on Family Guy that sounds like Wagmire.
This is serious news. China has been secretive for 5,000 years, which is 4, 992 years long than Bush and Cheney, and yet you have the neocon mentality of sea-breezes. Well, it's not. China would love to fight if provoked, it is all the have been doing for 4,992 years more than Bush/Cheney. And then they have Russia on their side. No time for NAU, just NUKE, on our soil.
I am tired, and I need to sleep. I just wanted to chime-in that this type of laissez-fair attitude will be the death of us all.
So, yeah, I hope you were joking....
