China, A Military Threat?

I read two articles today that mention the possibility of a war between the United States and China. The first one, http://www.cnsnews.com/ViewForeignBureaus.asp?Page=/ForeignBureaus/archive/200507/FOR20050715d.html says, " China is prepared to use nuclear weapons against the United States in the event of a conflict over Taiwan, Western newspapers quoted a senior Chinese military officer as saying Thursday." The second article, http://english.peopledaily.com.cn/200506/15/eng20050615_190420.html says, "The wave of "China military threat theory" whipped up by the US military is a dangerous practice, involving its attempt to obstinately place China in a "rival" position. The "China military threat theory" not only injures China's security, it all the more involves the price paid for the peace and stability in the Asia-Pacific region, as well as the price paid for US misled security."

In this translation http://classics.mit.edu/Tzu/artwar.html of his book The Art Of War Sun Tzu says, "All warfare is based on deception." (You can find several translations of The Art Of War online, I'd suggest you read more than one of them) Many times I've heard and read that China still uses the teachings of Sun Tzu. Every time I read something about the policies of China and the United States when dealing with each other I become a little more convinced that both countries are using his book.

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.

China IS a threat no matter how much ultra-leftists, business-minded rightists and China itself claims. We shouldn't be allowing our companies to invest in China because they are hurting OUR economy first of all, sending us shoddy products second of all and giving China capital to upgrade its military third of all. Neither party has taken the needed stand against China in the US that is needed. If we do nothing, we will lose everything when it comes time to go toe-to-toe with China.

China has too many economic eggs in the US's basket. We are their biggest trading partner and they rely on us to sustain their economy; if we don't buy from China, China is a third world nation again. Taiwan isn't worth it.
