Any astute observer will know that the current government of the United States of America is not going to take nor accept any bull-crap from any country, not any more. The days of countries like China running circles around America is over, especially not under the current president of America as well as the very patriotic men running affairs of the country. When the caliber of men and women heading the various departments including defense, homeland security, central intelligence agency as well as their boss in the White House is considered, it is without a doubt that they mean business, that the time for bullshitting with America is firmly over and these no nonsense men are ready and willing to back their words with fiery action if push comes to shove. The days of knee jerk diplomacy is certainly over, gone with what was before January 20th, 2017. Any one country which thinks that it will continue to grow and achieve economic greatness on the back of peace secured by America's treasure and blood should know that they have another thing coming. China cannot and will not be allowed to continue to menacingly starred down on its neighbors and time to call their arrant bluff is now. Enough is enough and if China wants war, let China be given war.
China should know that losing is not and will not be an option for America and once started, America will not stop until Beijing falls or at least the Chinese government is made to pay a hefty price for their intransigence with everything brought on the table for necessary divvying up. From losing Tibet to foreclosing their claims to Taiwan and allowing any other such units of China that might want to federate or even declare their independence o have their way. America is wrought and forged in wars and America has been fighting wars ever since its coming into existence and being battle tested, will not cower before a China which has not fought wars is so many decades and the only time they tried, Japan overran it and occupied it for such a long time. Icheoku says what Japan did to China will be a child play if they ever miscalculate and give America reason to really smack them down. That China has grown exponentially, economically, over the many years is because America allowed them and the same way their economic growth was powered by America will be the same way they will be brought down to their knees by America should their current braggadocios rhetoric morph into a shooting war.
It is without a doubt that whatever weapons China has was replicated from stolen technologies of America and there is no way possible a copycat will be as good as or outperform the original. America is top notch in weaponry, weapons systems and payload delivery and have been practicing target-shooting over the past fifteen years, none stop in so many hot-spots including Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, Somalia and Syria. That so many sophisticated weapons which have not yet been used or tested before are awaiting for a battle field to actually put them into use and see how destructive they could be is also a fact; as well as those many others which have been improved upon since they were first tested in various battle theaters. Logistics will also not be a problem for America as America has close allies in Japan, Philippines, Vietnam and even South Korea, all countries which see the threatening China as emblematic and needs to be stopped and pray that America will help them stop the current intimidation around and over the South China Sea.
Icheoku says may be America should even take the war of words a step further by renaming the South China Sea to Asian Sea and see how the name change catches fire. So with all these solid grounds including the territory of Guam, Hawaii as well as floating acreages of fleets of aircraft carriers, it is going to be an interesting war to fight and China must not be given any importance more than they deserve but forced to back down or there will be war. That America will swarm China and readily deploy maximum weapons without thinking too much over is a fact. Whatever war that breaks out will be approached as a war for superiority and whatever takes China to its knees fastest will be a good option and a fair tactical approach. The days of million man army or numerical strength military is since long gone. Now only bombs and computers will so easily lay to waste any battalion of fatigue wearing men so assembled and gathered anywhere. Allies of America in the Asian Pacific and NATO, failing which Britain and Israel, are likely to get involved and will readily throw their hats into the ring to help tame the red dragon and do it now.
It is going to be a really bloody war and possibly a very effective way to finally population-control China. A war once started can only end on the terms of the victor and America will not live and see China triumph, no matter what it cost both in blood and treasure. Simply put, losing is not an option and will not be for the United States of America and China must be aware of this resolute principle and have a rethink its contemplated seizure of the South China Sea. Any war with China can only end with one assured outcome, a defeat of China with far reaching consequences; including withering down its geographical size, curtailing its growing power and influence, depriving it of its riches as well as a change of its system of government. It was done in Germany and it also was done in Japan following the wars and today both countries are better for it, governed in a more civilized manner. May be China needs to take a dose of the medicine to enable it become a better and more easily manageable country that stops its current acts of aggression against its neighbors by trying to appropriate to itself alone, a common international water ways that belongs to all.
