A lot of people seem to think that a War between the World's 2 Superpowers is very likely at some point in time.

Thoughts / opinions?

I doubt it. Why would a war be necessary?

They're way too reliant on each other nowadays. North Korea is the main threat now.

My friend who works at can't-disclose-here-organization keeps telling me the US is going to war with China because it doesn't plan on paying the debt...

...modes and scales are still useless.

we both have insane amounts of trade between each other. if we went to war and stopped trade, both of us would suffer.
i dont see us and china going to war. i find us staying in the middle east for 6+ years waaay more likely (and inevitable)

I foresee a Fallout-style war. Including the 50's music and atomic bombs and shit. I've already started to save up on bottle caps.

Honestly, your friend probably doesn't know shit. Federal organizational employments usually mean shit all when it comes to international politics on this level, unless your friend is extremely high up in intelligence/rank heirarchy, which of course he isn't

Yeah he's pretty low on the intelligence chain...in more ways than one...

Considering China seems to be intent on economic hegemony -- as opposed to military hegemony -- I would doubt it. Especially since their economic might is in part due to a largely American supported manufacturing sector.

no, soon governments will realize that we are one global economy and war will be come obsolete. Shooting each other with little lead pellets will do nothing but hurt bottom line profits and that will not stand. The USA and China are going to be friends for a long time.

Don't be so sure. I've been wanting to go to war against you for a while now.

I agree no, but your reasoning is wrong. War is an incredible way to jumpstart an economy, actually. WWII can be praised for essentially ending the Great Depression, in fact.

Well, it's not that kind of times anymore, and it's not only up to them. They can't just "go to war", unless they want to battle the whole world. No one is going to support this kind of decision, and it wouldn't be beneficial to anyone except America, so no one is going to let it go to war. And if it did, rest of the population would go medieval on it's ass.

So no, no war any time soon for sure. Strongest countries in the world are doing just fine (except for USA) - China, Russia, etc - everyone is rising, even with the bad economy it's still better times for them now that it was before, so they would like to keep it this way.

I've always rejected that. In 1937 the GDP surpassed it's pre-Depression levels.

While that may be true, ya gotta remember that the Great Depression wasn't isolated to America, the entire world felt it. You also can't argue that WWII didn't help America's situation. Sure, it may not have been the sole reason for the end of the Great Depression, but it definitely contributed.

They have enough money to buy it, and they will probably have Russia on their side too, while America couldn't afford fuel for it's own navy, so it would only be useful while standing still and waiting for China to come over.

You're might be a 'tard. America's economy still dwarfs anything China has going. California alone is a huge chunk of the world's economy. Where we go... they follow. There will be no war, but if there was China's would not stand a chance against our navy. As this is the key to winning a big time war. America hasn't unleashed it's full capabilities in 60+ years. Look what happened the last time we did.

We can't afford to declare war on them, and they can't afford to declare war on us. We're their economy's biggest asset, we have billions in loans, and we buy a shit-ton of stuff from them on a daily basis. It's a mutual, if disgusting, relationship.

If you would be interested in your economy at all, you would know that California is what drags the whole America down and will be the first state to fall down. That's your own American economists talking.

I was making a joke before, but I see you are going serious with this and that just puts a smile on my face. First of all, it's not navy - it's about who's against who. If you have Navy, and China has Russia on it's side, I don't think the Navy would matter. Personally, I think that would mean end of the world, that is why there's never going to be a war. Weapons are too powerful now, and Russia is on the top by nuclear warheads at the moment.

"America hasn't unleashed it's full capabilities in 60+ years. Look what happened the last time we did." - it's good that you stopped talking there. I'm not even going to address this, but I guess they ARE hiding a time machine or the whole package of super power weapons from Red Alert 2 arsenal.

Nope, however the US is gonna be at war with Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan and Palestine soon.

The US can't stand to just sit there while Israel gets all the action.
