    No question, China will know who bombed them. I am assuming the bombs are big but not nuclear and that China does not want to cross that line either. They don't yet have any chance against the US miltary might, but are rapidly building their own now.

    China does have a big economic gun in their dollars in reserves. - They will probably fire it, sending dollar to very low value as they dump them. (Others will dump their dollar reserves too to prevent losing even more by being the last to do so.)

    That dollar dumping will send the US and EU into deep depression, but we will be able to recover better now after the bombing than if the depression comes in 2013 without bombing because US factories will not need to compete with the more modern ones GWB's trickle down tax relief built in China. Also the US will have a less deep debt hole to try to climb out of now than in 2013.

    No, ending the money that controls our politicians. Forbid them from taking lobbying jobs. No Republican is in favor of this, and yet it is the cause of the runaway spending they have been complaining about. It's beyond hypocrisy, it's a sick game, and we are the losers.

    China does indeed have the largest dollar reserve of any country outside the US. In these times economic warfare can be more powerfull than military.

    Politics by its very nature is open to corruption. The personality types that seek power in a democratic system are naturally egotistic.

    True. But it could turn ugly, fast. Not neccesarily between China and the US(although it is a possibility), but between people who supported it and those who disagreed.

    Which seems to suggest more regulation, not less.

    You can always find someone desperate enough to work for a bowl of rice. Is this really the standard we hope to emulate? If not, then we have to artificially separate our economy from theirs and create different conditions, rather than what's going on now, which is a race to the bottom.

    Regulation, or a different system altogether.

    It is the standard we are emulating, both Europe and America. The beauty of globalisation.

    It all starts with greed , we want to buy products really cheap , where are they made - China; next thing you know China economy booms while ours slumps. Eventually their standard of living will rise whilst ours falls, then the balance will shift back again, more than a few decades before that happens though.

    I'm guessing it would be cheaper to attack Iran, Iraq and KSA and steal their wealth than attempt an attack on China. I'd much rather keep the Chinese on side than the Saudi's. But, in reality, we should have a Depression. If we would have had one in 08 we'd probably be coming out of it a little right about now.
