I agree, China is a big threat to us. They buy our bank notes, they manufacture our goods, they could easily sever those ties with us and the USA would be crippled. We need to start relying on ourselves now, China is not a country to mess with anymore. I believe there days of peace and neutrality is long gone now. If China ever invaded, I doubt it would be successful, because they do not have the craft to bring over there entire army. They could attack but not keep the land. If that happens, the USA would start a draft and the Chinese could watch the US's military might rise higher than they would have ever expected. If the USA were invaded, I am sure the citizens of our nation would be all for wiping them off of the Earth. If the Chinese successfully held our land and took over, there would be too many militias who are highly trained and know the land. It would be like Iraq and America, the big country with the guns goes in, but the smaller guerilla fighters have the home advantage. Let's hope this never happens.

They can't really hurt their biggest customer! I say let them try. It is hard to find any made in America items any more. I remember a time when people started looking more at where their items were made. Maybe we should all start doing that again. I guess some of us never stopped. But anyway, we are their biggest customer, and we could hurt them back!


It is not that simple, you can't just stop all trade and pick up making jobs at home. China basically controls our economy by buying our stocks and bank notes, if they were to stop, the USA would be crippled.

Easily done with all the BP fall-out littering the boards.

What are your opinions on whether an all-out war with China would escalate to a nuclear conflict?


A escalation from a all out war to a nuclear war. Depends on war strategy protocol.

As we already know, The US can't send its whole fleet of ships, air crafts, and other military assets to fight China all at once. Unless other NATO forces releases US assets stationed around the globe. The US needs the capability to protect its borders from attacks from other nations who might see a opportunity, Like Russia.

But this again depends on how the mobilisation scenario of forces are played out before the war actually breaks out. Because its the mobilisation scenario that probably will start the war. And its the mobilisation process that will determine what type of weapons that will be used and who will be involved in the initial fight.

My guess is. This war will be fought with conventional weapons and tactical nukes right of the BAT. This war will go ballistic right away.

Another thing to keep in mind. The majority of the American soldiers are afraid of dying. The majority of Chinese soldiers see death as an honor. Because they are groomed different mentally than we are. This will also determine how this war will be fought. It will be damn brutal.

LOL at those people saying

''USA WOULD KICK CHINA'S ASS!!!111!!! USA USA USA''

Shut up seriously, I thought you were all supposed to be setting a good example and its pathetic to see such things being posted, If China invaded britian, I'd kick David Camerons ass and make him apologise and even hold him to gun point.

There are NO winners in war.
ONLY losers.

Yet my post will be ignored.

This is ATS god damn people, Stop acting like the great sterotypical Superior American that the world has placed upon you, sort your selfs out and start a peace protest or something.

remember, Its not just the governments country, ITS YOURS.

Once again China doesn't need military war to disable and even take the mighty US.

China's U.S. Debt Holdings Hit 2010 High, a case of national security.

If our government doesn't give a crap about this big National Security issue is because it sees China as a good investment nation to buy our debt.


For the second consecutive month China increased its U.S. debt holdings, raising the amount to $900.2 billion, the highest level since November 2009, according to the Treasury Department.

China’s holdings of U.S. debt increased $5 billion over the month of March, which was preceded by six consecutive months of Beijing’s debt holdings either falling or staying at the same level.

Japan remained the second largest holder of U.S. debt at $795.5 billion, followed by the United Kingdom $321.2 billion and the oil exporting nations at $239.3 billion.
Overall, foreign holdings of U.S. debt increased to $3.96 trillion.
.

They also have a nuclear option that they have used in the pass and that is to stop buying our debt to get US to do what they want.

I find it amusing how some think China wouldn't be a threat,all they need is a few nukes dropped,don't some realize how this would effect us,china is no longer in the stone age,easily on par with the US,so I say back off otherwise US could be a massive waste land

I guess you will find out how badly China can hurt you when it happens. You've been sold out by your leaders, and you are sitting there making stupid comments like ' I wish a 5ft Chinese would come over and pick a fight from me...I would love to see that'

I would too, if only to see the arrogance wiped from your face.

If America is to stand a chance in a war against China, they had better start it yesterday.... which won't happen, as you are still asleep in the myth of your own invulnerability.



Japan used to talk like that.

Anybody here ever read Xen Xiu's The Art of War....?

You fight your ebemy on every level...militarilly, economically, psychologically, culturally...and you use time. You win the battle by not having to even fight the battle... for if your efforts result in combat, you have failed.

The Chinese and their doctrines are based on years.. not days/ weeks/ months...like the West. The war in Viet Nam is a good example. Further, if they want to move 10,000 rocks to make a road...they don't build some engineering marvel like the West....they get 10,000 people to move one rock.

I do not believe that China is yet ready for confrontation...but the fact that they are getting "ballsy" is telling. They do not have to project power to the continnental US, either.

Limited gaines, over the course of time, with success...will win the long term conflict.

TAIWAN... domination of the South China Sea and Sea of Japan and the PHILLIPINES. That is the agenda. China is building up it's naval forces at an unprecedented rate with an emphasis on CARRIERS, MISSLE FRIGATES, and AMPHIBIOUS CRAFT.

I believe that in long term planning... the US Military sees this and has taken steps over the last decade to "head off China at the pass" so to speak. Turn a world map upside down and look at China...then look at the nations around China. The US is in Afghanistan...next to China...has troops in S.Korea... troops in Japan... troops in the S.Pacific Basin and Phillipines... has bases in Indian Ocean for forward deployment...troops in Iraq and S.W. Asia. China is basically surrounded by the US. We even have a NATO corridor now open across Russia..a dn close ties with air bases in the little -akistan countries along Russia's southern border.

The US needs to step up it's game and really put some meat in its military might.

We have the technology, China has the numbers. Look at WWII and the war in Russia to see how that played out between the Germans and Russians. A fast, hurried conflict of weeks and the US would win.... a drawn out conflict of say 6months to a year and China would win. A conflict beyond a year and it is anybody's guess.

The Chinese aren't as primitive now as they were in Korea and they gave us a bloody nose in 1951-52... they almost won. Plus, we don't produce what we used to here either. That entire infrastructure would have to be rebuilt...quickly. You can't turn car factories over to tank production and refridgerator plants into jet production...we just don't have the capacity we once did. That will take time....

Therefore, I see some crisis develope, maybe an economic strike against the USA, and then out of the blue...Chinese occupation of Taiwan with a massive naval blockade/gauntlet to keep out the counter strikes... and maybe an on land invasion to use as a bargaining chip to keep Taiwan in the followup truce negotiations.

China is no paper tiger.

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.


I agree with this. Especially dealing with markets, it would be unfavorable for China to threaten the U.S., but for both sides I can imagine.

Also, I remember reading somewhere that China is spending way too much to sustain itself for too much longer(as they spend far above their income), does anyone know what I'm talking about?

Personally some of the Chinese seem a tad bit crazy and extreme. As far as countries willing to fight a major war, I think China nears the top of the list. I think national pride is extremely high and that can be a dangerous thing.

I believe I understand what your saying. Since the world economic downturn, China's export customers have declined in purchases/imports from China. But to artificially maintain their economy and keep people working, the chinese govt is still pushing manufacturing. The goods are backing up...literally on the dock.

At some point, things have got to give.... there in lies the economic crisis for china.

To maintain/increase exports...China has to sell at cost or at a loss. You can't do that for very long. And with thousands...millions of new middle class workers tasting the good life and wanting more....you have to keep them happy...or distracted...aka N Korea.

Thats not good for anybody.

A declared war with China will cancel any US debt to that country and any of China's holdings in the US will revert to either the original US owners or to the US governemt. That accounts for how many billions, I dont think there will be war anytime soon with China..we have all to gain..how are they going to attack through Alasaka..well that will take a year alone..West coast..hehe Cant think of a better front guard than the San Francisans...East Coast big mistake ..all the original 13 colonies that believe freedom is worth dying for...oh yeah There's the deployable nuc's that will desimate 1/3 their force in one setting..

This is why all the war talk is to late,number 1.

China has intentionally manipulated the gender of their children in order to creat an artificially contrived "sense of need"amongst their population,THIRTY MILLION MEN OF MARRYING AGE WITH NO WOMEN TO MARRY?

This population manipulation through gender was an overt act of agression,started fifty years ago,it was never about resources and it has always been about resources.

The intent was to create a geo-political "tipping point" where these thirty million single men create a movement supporting expansion after which the majority of the population will support expansion.

We knew then and we know now.It was a mistake to try to use a historically unsucessful method of global dominance,China.
China should have stayed friends with India,but because this is really RACIAL they couldnt .could they?

You see there will never be a country that dominates the globe again,those days are over.


You cant hide your intentions anymore,we know China is racist and has an agenda of world dominance.

Its to late,look at Canada,how would you ever sort out who is fighting for who?

Easy,when people start to die EVERYONE TURNS CANADIAN.


If Canada had intentions of world dominance what do you think the end result would look like??

A global democracy,thats what,not white like America[just kidding I travel there is no such thing as a white country]not yellow like China ,not brown like India,but colored like a rainbow as Canada is and as the rest of thge world is rapidly becoming.

China is afraid to embrace the world and throw herself into humanities future.

China wants to remain racist and fight for the yellow mans needs.

Try fighting for humanities needs,lose the racist,supremicist attitude.


There is a Chineese man who rides a bike and collects bottles for the refund money ,he has been scavenging in my neighborhood for several years,I am self-teaching Mandarin so I sometime say hi to a young canadian student who has Chineese heritage,I have learned the mans story,he collects fifty dollars a day worth of bottles,he lives on the street,he invests the fifty dollars every single day and he lives on what he collects OVER THE FIFTY EACH DAY.He uses the money to support his family in China,so the kid says.

No overhead,no rent ,no spending money,no contribution back to our community other than picking through the garbage cans,this guy thinks he is smart.He isnt.

He knows how to use money and the system but he isnt smart.


He thinks he has found a way to take out more than he puts in,it just doesnt work that way.

He doesnt WANT to be part of Canada,he wants money to send home,period.

The world is full of Chineese people who think like he does.

They are like a scavenging force of nature.

I say scavenging because all they want to do IS SEND ASSETS HOME TO CHINA IN AN IMPERIALISTIC ATTEMPT AT SILENT ,NO-VIOLENT PREPARATION FOR A SHOT AT THE TITLE.

Forget it,put in the work spen your money and your energy here,or wherever else on the planet you are,dont be so racist,the world isnt all yellow you know.

Look back into history and admit why you dont rule the planet today,because it cant be done thats why.

You will be assimmilated.

Reason number 2.

There will never be a one world dominant culture EVER AGAIN,we are all like Canada now,many of us just dont get it yet.

What do you think will be left after a war??

A rainbow of colors thats what,but no China,America,or India,or any other large armed country..

Not having to rollover the debt from the treasury bonds they have wouldn't put a dent in the amount of debt the USA has, or the crippling effect of the end of global free trade.


.how are they going to attack through Alasaka..well that will take a year alone..West coast..hehe Cant think of a better front guard than the San Francisans...East Coast big mistake

A star for you, the art of war a most read for every officer in the military.

If you are familiar with it, you know that so far China has been following that book as much as they can.

And very successfully.

Pot meet Kettle.

You've got to be living in some dream world or something if you haven't worked out the USA is currently the top dog and closer to dominating the world than anyone else ever has been. They are the only super power. And they are trying to take over the world.

Hows the war against those islamofacists terrorists insurgents going? Remember when it was just Osama Bin Laden but now like 2 million civilian causalities later it's about Muslims?

Hows that "new" 1 trillion find of minerals in Afghanistan that basically 70% of Americans think now belongs to them?

God americans are such idiots, China is the real power and Washington knows it, it has American by the balls economically, and if you think they cant survive without the US market then you are even more stupid than the rest of the world thinks. China sells good to everyone, loosing the US would be a small drop in a huge ocean.

Wake up America, the world hates you, the world knows your government is weak and the world knows your government is broke, and we all look forward to the day that the US is in the same state as Greece. You have a debt of 16 TRILLION DOLLARS yet your government continues to spend, stop worrying about the day that someone comes to 'kick-ass' (as your president would say), because by the time it happens you will be a bankrupt state.

The United States of America is no longer relevant in the modern world, because no-one cares what The White House says anymore, your politics is corrupt and your President is weak, even by the previous Presidents standards.

The American dream is dead, because you cant afford it anymore, your armed forces cannot be sustained at current spending levels, and the white house knows it, and I bet Bejing knows it too.

Surely the American ego already knew the tide was turning against you?

How long till someone publically tells Obama to shove it? I know I cant wait.

The Chinese and the American economies are too integrated with each other at the present moment for a conflict to flare up. America provides the biggest market for low cost Chinese goods and this bilateral trade is benefiting the Chinese a lot.

At present, America's naval superiority is unquestioned. Any enemy would need to cross the oceans to mount an attack. However, even the planners in Beijing know about this obstacle and they must be working to solve this. It is said that the Chinese military draws its inspirations from Sun Tzu and there is one quote that I remember : "Know yourself and your enemy well and you need not fear the results of even a hundred battles".
