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!

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?
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.

Typical Western arrogance.
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.

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.

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
