They can't really hurt their biggest customer! I say let them try.
"There is a clearly a major global imbalance problem that hasn't gone away. But having said that, the notion that there is a simple solution to those imbalances by Chinese revaluation I think frankly is misguided," Finance Minister Lindsay Tanner told Reuters Insider TV.
"I'd have to say if you were looking for the culprits on why these problems have emerged, you'd have to say that the fiscal and monetary policies of the United States in the earlier part of this decade would be number one on that list," he said.

No im not a warhawk but its the only way to pay off our debt.
We will do what the mexicans did to the french.
Its time we sent a strong message to china to back the -snip- off.
It seems they forgot one of chairman maos greatest quotes "all the power in the world is held at the barrel of a gun". And the unted states has the biggest,most accurate,most technologically advanced gun in the world.
Let them say they will "hurt us".
well i say our generals should say "They may 'hurt' us...but we will wipe them off the face of the earth"
We are being to weak armed with the chinese.
Its time they step in line or get whats coming to them.
Are they really that delusional to think they can defeat us militarily?
DONT MAKE ME LAUGH.
The only thing they have over us i troop numbers. and Numbers stoped mattering during the korean war where we KILLED 1 MILLION CHINESE!
Face it china....you are outgunned and outtrained.
Maybe you should start talking about 'hurting' us when you upgrade the majority of your jet planes from the 60-70s era.

China cannot project power. They could have the largest military in the world, and they still could not touch the US, as they have no way to move their troops and equipment over the sea. If China wanted to hurt us, we'd have to go to them, because they certainly cannot come to us. Ground war is right out. If China suddenly started building up an amphibious fleet and carrier groups, we'd know about it, and could stop them. The US Navy DOMINATES the seas. No nation can threaten our borders without getting past our Navy first.
Furthermore, if China were to go to war against the US- we'd cancel our debt to them, and they don't want that. If China went to war against the US, they'd lose the largest market for the goods they manufacture, and the foundation of their economy. They certainly don't want that.

China would be stupid to want to start a war in the next 10 years. Why would anyone want to bite the hand that feeds it That's like me walking into my biggest customer and saying to him I'm going to kick you in the n*ts in 5 years time. Pretty darn dumb
