    Depending on what it is, it could provoke a limited war where troops only engage in that region. Can you give an example?

    Actually it isn't. You are a member of the subset anybody's, right? It is YOUR signature. It wouldn't be YOUR guess. YOU would know, right? So, why do you have that in your signature?

    Sure, oil. It is a strategic asset, right? China does rely on that region for their oil, right? Does it matter if it is limited or not? It would still be a war with China, right?

    That was even more than less than helpful. If you don't want to say, that's fine by me. We are only as sick as the secrets we keep.

    No, the US would not go to war with China merely over petroleum.
