    That is ludicrous, it would be the most unexpected, unneccessary, and useless foreign policy gesture of the modern era for China to militarily intercede in this conflict. It would be counter-productive, destroy their regional interests, risk an existential threat to their rise, and offer nothing that would actually prevent the decapitation of the Iranian nuclear program. It is as close to zero chance as you can get. There is no legitimate analyst in the world who thinks China would do this.

    ZERO FKG CHANCE.

    The US would be absolved of all debt to China and China would thus disintegrate as a country. And the US would be back in the black (economically) the next day. All of our financial woes would be solved and China would cease to exist in the form it does today (it would fragment). So, no, dude. No way.

    This might be a good time to reiterate how debt to foreign nations is a diplomatic tool and not all bad.

    It'll be over before the Chicoms could get there. Even if it isn't there isn't enough friendly airspace between China and Iran, and they sure as hell aren't going to lock horns with the United States Navy that will be stopping enemy traffic from entering the gulf.

    Iran destabliizing the ME. WTF! Your must be kidding. They are not ones that have engaged in numerous wars and proxy wars. If you want to make war at least be honest about the reasons, It's not about stability. It's about BRICS and the possiblity of a new petrodollar. Here's an idea maybe we should focus on our infrastructure and trade agreements instead of trying to maintain economic advantage through military force.

    We must keep a strong military presence in the middle east. We must protect our oil.

    Hamas and Hezbollah are no threat to us. They might be a threat to Israel and so what. There is no reason we should fight Israel's wars.

    In other words, they ARE a proxy fighting a war for Iran.

    Israel is prepared to neutralize Iran's nuclear weapons if necessary and if other countries will not give assistance, but Obama has strongly indicated he does not want this solo action to happen.

    Do they have the capability to do so. If they act solo against Iran they will have to deal with Russia and China, even if only in the background.
