    All responses must be posted in Mandarin. Wear gray or blue pajama like suits when posting and everything you post will be reviewed by the Party, so keep it on message, comrades!

    China is asserting. Is the US strong enough to match them? All appearances say that we lose to China every day while they defeat us by increments every single day.

    Is China the greatest nation on earth? Will they dominate the world economically within 2-3 years? Does the USA still have a spine?

    Pffft, 2-3 years?! Maybe 20-30 at least, absolutely not in 2-3. China's GDP isn't projected to surpass the US's until 2030; and even farther ahead in per capita terms (at least over 50 years). As far as 'strong' goes, the US is still totally unsurpassed. Almost 700 billion dollars a year (4.2%) to China's paltry 100 billion (2%) for a nation three times larger in population.

    No doubt China's assertiveness is concerning, but even with the rosiest of forecasts, China's future is far from clear. It would be surprising if the CCP was in power for another 20 years, and it is uncertain how China is going to deal with the inevitable transition from one-party rule.

    In either case there's nothing to do about it. Even with all its military spending the US could not possibly invade China, and China could not possibly invade the US. A war would be either useless or end in total annihilation. Chances are that China's neighbours will likely have to endure the same treatment that the US's neighbors have for the past 200 years.

    Not just off message but with neighbors like Russia and India instead of Mexico and Canada China has much bigger problems than we do as in our offshore thorn in the side is Cuba and theirs is Japan.

    we will see Willie. At this point I would say we are definitely locked into a trade war with China that may last for the duration.

    But on the other hand:

    Our leaders are pussies, and our leaders are still addicted to never ending debt.

    We may have to execute them to show China we are serious.

    I don't know picking fights with India, Russia and Japan strikes me as an awful full plate of chest thumping to avoid domestic political problems. I think China may be headed towards partial collapse soon.

    well that would be fun if it is true.

    Russia and China seem to be getting along quite well recently, and I expect this to continue until China gets too powerful to love.

    Japan is fucked. They have no economy, they have no military they just have a lotta our bonds and a lot5 of their own debt.

    India is hard to gauge, they are natural competitors and since they speak English and were part of the common wealth they seem to be the west's answer to a too big China.

    But India probably has even more internal problems than China and those are holding India back.

    China may surprise you. Esp since their rival the US is impotent to stop them from crucifying us with the peg.

    I think William is more right here. They have all kinds of stuff on their plate, and they can't keep all the plates spinning.

    This is probably just stuff they are doing to keep things chilled at home.

    China's per capita GDP won't be higher than ours when your grandkids die.
    Get a fucking nightlight.
