So far, the consensus is that China is the most likely threat, or at least the only nation that has the numbers to be a real challenge.
You discount China too quickly I think.
The other thing that people seem to be saying in this thread is that Mexico, or Latin Americans could also be a long-term "threat", especially when considering birth-rates.
What if you put the two together somehow?
Ever hear of Shining Path?
China, and Latin America, already have forged a closer relationship than is generally appreciated.
As long ago as 1960, Cuba began a relationship with China. Most look at events in the mid-sixties, and conclude that the apparent rift between the Soviet Union and China took it's toll on these fledgling alliances. But did they?
WHAT IF, China has been working a five-decade-old Spanish language program to infiltrate the US, via Latin America?
The old rumors that China had taken people indigenous to Asia that had very "Mexican", or "Peruvian" appearances, and created artificial villages in China, that simulated the Latin world, might not be so far-fetched.
Imagine a town, a town that very much could pass for a Mexican village. All signs are in Spanish. The people "look" Mexican. And yet, they are in fact a tribe closer to Tibetan perhaps, that would easily "pass" typical American scrutiny.
Imagine further, the children grow up only hearing Spanish! And why not? Cuban advisers are everywhere, and have helped create the perfect simulated Latin American village.
Within the village, as the children grow up, they are exposed, even indoctrinated, with a rather "Latin" version of Maoist philosophy, known as the Sendero Luminoso (Shining Path) in Latin America.
Of course, this "experiment" is multiplied dozens of times across a vast China, and very, very few have any idea that such a thing is going on.
As these children grow up, they actually think that they are "Peruvian", or "Bolivian", or Venezuelan", or "Mexican". They have no idea that they are actually CHINESE, for all intents and purposes (and allegiances!).
A long mysterious voyage on a huge ship, but thankfully, it only takes them back to a land they are already "familiar" with. They all speak Spanish! Oh where is their home town?
Other leadership cells are activated to "herd" these "Trojan Latins" to contemplate migration...to America!
Over several decades, their numbers are truly alarming. HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS now find themselves within the US borders!
Once inside the US, they find it's not hard to find "fellow" Mexicans/Peruvians/etc., who agree that "Atzlan" makes the most sense! The gringos stole the land from Mexico after all!
Their children grow up also believing that the time will come, when the gringos will be sent packing!
At some point in the future, a critical mass is achieved. Political power is mostly in the hands of Latinos in the Southwestern USA. The population is MAJORITY Latino.
Revolution? Well, don't be too surprised to find that CHINA is rather sympathetic to this emerging "nation" of Atzlan!
Split the Union? Really? Well, we shall see! But considering the latest demographic news is that Latinos are now the biggest "minority" in the US, some may come to see the writing is on the wall.

I thought of a new plan. China could end their one child law and Russia could join in on this plan. Maybe some eastern European countries could join in too. The countries would send millions of their prettiest young women to the US. The secret agenda would be to mate with all single guys in this country. They might not even need to be that secret about it. Then the American women would get left out. The predominant Americans would be replaced with Chinese, Russian, and maybe Czech offspring. I had to throw in a third country because I've met and seen some very nice looking Czech girls. I've seen a lot of good looking Russians here too but they don't always seem as friendly. China could really dominate in this scenario but that one child law messes them up. I don't believe they are trying this plan at the moment.

The answer, of course has largely already been answered in other posts. The US is like an extremely large and powerful animal. If you're a relatively little guy, and you want to take this huge guy down, you're going to have to get a bunch of other little guys to gang up on the big one, then you're going to have to identify the key weak points and ideally just infiltrate via these points so that when you are ready to take over overtly, they just open the doors for you.
