I don't think the guy actually meant that China was planning on attacking the US. I have always backed Wikileaks, and I don't think they would
publish any sensitive information that would actually heavily compromise any lives, at least they wouldn't without editing it, but I think they
overlooked the implications of this cable.
They didn't know that China would be able to tell that they had spies in their midst, because they didn't know how the information was obtained to
begin with. So there could very well be US operatives/agents' lives in danger at this point. That is not a good thing.
So like I said, I don't think that this meant China is planning an attack on the USA, but that doesn't mean they won't attack in the future. I
remember my grandmother, when I was younger, saying that if the US were ever attacked by another country, it would be Red China...I never asked her
why she thought that, but I would probably agree at this point, since they are probably the only country that could go toe to toe with the US
If we ever do go to war with them, which is still unlikely at this point, we better hope and pray that neither side is stupid enough to use nuclear
weapons, because if they do, the other side WILL respond in the same manner.
So without using nukes, a war with China would be extremely difficult to win. They have the infrastructure and form of government, communism,
necessary to pose a great threat to us.
Remember back in 2007? The nuclear sub that snuck-up on our Pacific fleet? Not good. It would be more difficult to land ground troops, but it could be
done. A big part of the war would be allies, and who's country could be used as an invasion point. Say if Mexico allied with China, it would be
extremely easy to invade from into the border states. We have already shown how good we are at protecting our Southern border...
We should just pull a Canadian Bacon and go after Canada. Canada/GB would be great allies in a war with China. I am not positive that we could win
that war. The possibility is there, but a big part of it is impossible to analyze, simply because we do not know of the super-secret advanced
technologies that the military has. As in weapons I mean. Space-based weapons would be used as well. But again, if nukes are used, there won't be any
need for ground troops, since there would not be any ground troops left.
