    Does history repeat itself? Have we put ourselves in a defense posture in Asia similar to what we were in 1941 with Japanese Empire? China is our greatest threat in the world. Make no doubt about it, they are the enemy.

    They might be your enemy. But then for some, every Shadow is their enemy.

    They are the greatest global threat to U.S. military dominance in the world. I like my country being a global hegemon.

    If your nation is part of any of these alliances...China is your enemy too.

    Did your little flower garden not do well this year? I bet that’s Trump ‘s fault too. :206:

    Um. yeah. I guess.

    And they'd go into recession in about a year when all their trading partners cut them off.

    The fact is, China doesn't really have a great military record. They've been in the field three times since the Commies took over.

    They fought the US to a draw in Korea. They fought India to a draw in 1962. They ineffectively invaded Vietnam in 1979, only got about 10 miles in, and then withdrew.

    The ironic thing about China is that it is dependent on the west for trade and keeping the sea lanes open.

    Why? What do you personally get out of that? I mean, the rich benefit from it, but frankly, the new world order has kind of sucked for working folks.
