You are correct. The US will never start it. China will not push it unless they have too. The US is worth too much to them. They know if war breakouts the US will suddenly declare all debt to China null & void & will lose their biggest customer the US. Not only that the US would easily & comprehensively defeat China easily in any war. The only way it would happen is if some reason the US is declared bankrupt as a nation officially, China will try to come debt collecting!. But that will never happen as they now have ways to keep printing money and avoid hyper inflation. Either way very very unlikelyedit on 16-11-2010 by phatpackage because: (no reason given)

The real, actual reason the USA will not war with China is simple...
China is the 'proving grounds' for ideas and policies ...for the control of large groups of people.
The USA is watching for how China deals with their few capitalists allowed, and how they are dealt
with in being vulture capitalists or ego centric corporation bosses..
the USA is also watching their diverse agricultural population transform into factory line workers,
the US is also watching the masses being allowed to own gold in China & just what ramifications
the US wants to see the programs of crowd control using less than deadly force, the Chinese
Central Planners will use...
all-in-all... the USA is giving away space technology & nuclear technology so the Red Chinese
can approximate the American stage of advancement to make their system comparable to ours
so that comparison data is more valid & real. Then the USA does not need to run experimental
programs on our own population...just leave the Communist Chinese run the model at their expense,
and we will monitor them the best we can.... Thats a cheap alternative
Just look at the whole China central planning regemin, the non-lethal crowd control, the experiment with
Chinese owning gold & silver bullion..(& the future seizure of such)
And you will be seeing the future of the USA
