    Not only on public perception and reputation, but cops simply won't want to police these neighborhoods anymore.

    Isn't that a bit of a myth? IIRC the British hold more U.S. debt than the Chinese do.

    China holds all it needs to cripple our economy. Where is it that it has to hold the most debt to be effective?

In addition, you have doubtless read that one EMP detonated in the stratosphere could instantly shut down our grid for a long time. Since we are dependent on electricity for communication; heating and/or cooling our homes; lighting; keeping perishable foods safe to eat; and so forth; why bother sending an army here to defeat us when it's not necessary.

    You may consider this further "hysteria" on my part by mentioning these things, but when scientists and people in government are saying the same things, does it make all of them guilty of hysteria? On the contrary, I feel I'm probably in the company of people who know a lot more than I do about these things.
    Your point 1 is completely wrong and betrays a complete lack of knowledge of the relevant history.

    Your point 2 shows you don't know much about US history either and that you don't know much about the real capabilities of weapons.

    The massive amount of US debt held by China makes China very dependent on the US.

    There is a saying that applies to the U.S. and China.

    If you owe your bank 1,000 dollars and can't pay it you're in trouble.

    If you owe your bank 1,000,000 dollars and can't pay it then the bank is in trouble.

    Hardly, they can call those bonds anytime they want.
