Depends on how you look at it, I guess. In a conventional war, we would beat them, albeit likely with heavy DL casualties from both nations.

I'm looking at it through the lense of reality. Military strength means fuck-all with China right now. There is almost zero chance we will actually get involved in an armed conflict with them. Our economies are too intertwined for that even be on the table in almost any foreseeable scenario.

I agree.

My post was in regards to the hypothetical war scenario.

Mild cannot comprehend this. His idea of "power" is military strength and honestly believes that holds the most significant card in the deck. LOL

How dare anyone ask that.
Your business would be crushed because we'd experience a market crash, the likes of which the world has never seen. You fail to understand just how intertwined our economies are. China has the coolest head in the room right now.

China could have stopped NK from developing a nuclear weapon if they had wanted, they have not wanted to do that so here were are.

I am all for getting rid of NK nuclear program and weapons so we are not held hostage to them and to show China that they need to be a part of the rest of the world and help stop nuclear proliferation rather than allowing it for their own self interest.

We also need to remove china from the man made islands they have created in the S. China sea while we are at it.

Dafuq you talking about? I agreed with his post.

And when everything settles, yes, military power is the end-all, be-all. If not held to today's PC, snowflake standards, the USA could certainly dominate the world, perhaps greater than any other nation/empire, ever.

Dominate the world at what cost? Nuclear weaponry can destroy the world as we know it. Nuclear weapons have one purpose, to serve as a deterrent and prevent mass destruction.

Well it's placing military bases in an area of significant trade routes of commerce.

And I don't trust China for shit.

Kinda like is in Guam, South Korea, Japan, and countless other islands in the Pacific the US has bases on and within trade routes and close proximity of China.

Funny how the US takes offense at others doing the same things as ourselves. How dare they! Imagine the freak out if China built a base in Haiti or Cuba!

No shit. Got anything else? If not, I'm tuning into the fight Trump is now trying to pick with Venezuela including a threat of military action.

Anyone else notice that when our Supreme Leader speaks, his statements are straight from the Redundancy Department of Redundancy?
