Just a waste of America tax resources,when America get no benefits , especially by malcontents foreigners, spending trillion of dollars and borrowing it from.China,why would the Chinese eliminate their revenue stream the US taxpayers,

Two comments. Number one the lessons of the lead up to WWII and subsequently how the US was caught off guard by the North Korean invasion of South Korea argues strongly for keeping US forces forward deployed to deter future aggression.

The second comment is that China buys US Treasuries for purely selfish reasons. It soaks up excess US Dollars earned in trade and helps prevent the Yuen from rising in value relative to the US Dollar, keeping the terms of trade favorable for China. China knows their buying US Treasuries enhances the US financial position but cannot do otherwise as their economy lives and dies on their ability to export.

They will find out more than four Chinese aircraft carriers around them, the numbers will be right or even more in the next decade. China is the world biggest and fastest naval vessels builder now and keep expanding!

If they want to put all of their hardware out and risk losing it, they are welcome to do so. Also it is three aircraft carriers.

China,NK , Russian can obliterate Tokyo at a moment notice, 2 minutes after launch ,their is no law saying the US can legally retaliate,all decisions are made by Congress,the military do not have that authority only Congress ,they have the same capability to hit the US ,but want Google Fastest Ballistic Missiles.

Commanders have standing orders that grant them the authority to act under specified contingencies. If an enemy is shooting at an ally they don't have to ask Congress first for authority to act in defense when there is a formal defense treaty.

It doesnt matter. China can not take on half the world and win. Nobody, not even America could. But the US builds coalitions and alliances because it is smart enough to know that to win you need as many sovereign nations backing you as possible when taking on other world powers. As many bases, ports, air fields around the globe as you can get. The world has the advantage over China now and always. If it mistakenly believes it can rule the world, dispel all laws and come out on top it is in grievous error.

More nations come to protect trade in the South China sea and to keep the waterways international territory in defense against China. China simply cant win and any attempt will see the nation dismantled and occupied until it too is made democratic.
