    We are richer, stronger and we have more opportunities because of normalized trade with China.

    And a war would be devastating to both.

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

    No, there isn't. China has chosen a choke point unilaterally whereby they can control over half the world's shipping and strangle Japan, the Philippines, and Vietnam among others, economically. They can't win militarily, and they know it. They're attempt is to illegally exploit this opportunity to prop up their country, which is facing reduced growth in the future, and probably internal unrest as a result. They can't achieve this militarily unless other nations don't object. Other nations are objecting, and thus the bluster. Nobody has threatened to attack them.

    well, thank goodness for that, at least. i doubt that there will be very many happy Saturday outings to Walmart for anyone if we're at war with China, boycott or no.

    It's unclear what point you are trying to make.

    i've already made my points.

    there isn't going to be a war, because :

    a. MAD

    b. both sides will make more money if we don't have a war.

    c. the hawks don't even care about the islands enough to stop buying cheap Chinese electronics.

    The islands are not important to us but freedom of navigation is. And "cheap Chinese electronics" are irrelevant.
