    And you could just as easily say that China is dependent on your money, as opposed to you being dependent on their industry...
    Anyone with an I.Q. over 150 can see the distinct pattern on what is to come....China clearly is at great odds with the U.S. and trading has no meaning in this world once war starts.

    China (with Russia, etc) is clearly on a path to stop the U.S. influence on all of mankind.

    A Russian General even said there needs to be a global war to stop the U.S. influence on all of mankind.

    China is the new sleeping giant that the U.S. is awakening....

    Not really. It's just is an oxymoron to people who believe that their ideology was either the "true" liberalism or conservatism and cannot see beyond a one-dimensional label, which happens to be your group.

    China is a developing country, but it is a country with significant weaknesses. The more we go into debt to them, the more we owe them, yet they also become more tied to our financial success or ruin. Plus, their economy is not in such great shape, itself. It wants to be independent, but so far, not really physically expansive.

    China can go either way, folks. It will take a couple of decades to figure it out.

    You are correct....a couple of decades will figure it out.

    A couple of decades and China will pass the U.S. economically and then in turn militarily.

    Basic math shows it is inevitable for China to become the most powerfull country on the planet by far...

    It had been predicted for centuries, however, with just about each time failing to come to fruition-or, at least, to the degree people thought. The problem with China was that something or a multitude of things prevented it from becoming the juggernaut many powers thought it would have.

    The turning point was when many factory owners in the U.S. became traitors and closed factories to go over to China for cheaper labor.

    True China was always an ancient culture stuck in their ways which has prevented them from becoming the "juggernaut".

    It seems as if China only embraced capitalism to generate technology and income which it is putting most of it into its military technology.

    China is far more powerful and advanced militarily than western media portrays.

    I can get deep into their advances but it doesn't matter.

    What matters is the fact it is imminent China will be the most powerful country in the world and will pass the U.S. like it is standing still within 20yrs...

    Well, he is overplaying it. That being said, this "conspiracy theory" is actually more along the lines of partisan hackery if anything else negative. It has a basis in reality, but it might overplay the hand. Most countries may enjoy a check on the United States with regard to foreign affairs, be they military, diplomatic, or economic. China probably just wants to be independent from the United States and enjoy economic progress with its large numbered (but small) middle class. It will probably build up a military presence, but I do not think, at least yet, that the United States itself is threatened. It might in the times to come threaten our interests, but probably not our homes and way of life. Of course, however, everyone's biggest fear is China wanting the United States to pay them back..but for the time being that would be suicide for the Chinese.

    The costs would have been significantly less if we hadn't had a warmongering idiot in the White House who invaded 2 countries without comprehensive mission goals.

    p.s. china doesn't have to plot to take over us. We've already handed ourselves to them on a silver platter, economically speaking.
