Des any one think that the U.S. and China will ever go to war?

I just seems like a possibility that something like this could happen. We are in an economic war and the only way I can't think of to defeat China is to cut off trade to it for about a year. But I wonder if a physical war is a possibility.

  • Jul 31 2012: I wonder if any one thinks the U.S. and China will co-exist peacefully and cooperate harmoniously to elevate the joy level of their populations. It could happen.

      I share joy with my brother, not my enemy. :) As things are perceived.

          Jul 31 2012: The U.S. and China will never co exist because china is still a communist country and the U.S. is obliviously a democracy. The reason I ask this question is because I believe that china is trying to commence in economic warfare and one day the government may come to it's senses and stop this at once. The way we can stop china is to cut off trade to it for about six months so that we can collapse it's economy. Unfortunately, this isn't being done. It would only benefit America. It would bring the American economy up to the top again.

        • Aug 1 2012: US and China are acting as capitalist nations. Capitalist nations know that war in their territories has to be avoided at all costs.
