Will there ever be a conflict between the United States and China?


It's almost inevitable that there will be some type of naval engagement in the decade. I think this would have happened sooner if not for the 9/11 attacks. Remember just prior to that the U.S. had a spy plane brought down over Hainan Island.

    Great points. In thinking of China as the next Soviet Union/Cold War rival, I forget about how much are economies are intertwined. Much more so than they were w/the Soviet Union.

    I would disagree that we are the aggressor. China invaded Ladakh last week. They are clearly looking to expand not only their power base, but through land grabs as well. They did it in the early sixties too. Like the Soviets, they need a rival.
