If it weren't for your country China there'd be no need for the QUAD.

I agree.

No need for Quad if China rise peacefully as promised.

If Japan wants it done, they can do it themselves. America has 210 trillion in unfunded liabilities to care for.

America has gone through ten generations of fighting and building our nation to provide security for our people. We have been through trade skirmishes with China and land wars in Asia, including Iraq, Afghanistan, Korea and Vietnam, all of which did not benefit us. WE ARE NOT GOING TO DO IT AGAIN FOR TAIWAN OR ANYWHERE ELSE. We have enough problems of our own. We have allowed political infighting to the point where neighbor cannot live with neighbor; our borders are unmanageable; racial riots, homelessness, school shootings are everywhere. Its a tinderbox waiting to explode. To Asians, if you want something do it yourselves. We're tired of Japanese Korean Vietnamese complaining all the time. DO IT YOURSELF PLEASE

There is no way to do this and not default on US debt worldwide. The US cannot unilaterally cancel debt to one or two countries. That debt is owned by many thousands of banks, corporations, institutional funds, and millions of private investors. The negative effects will not be confined to China and Japan, but every US bondholder will suffer as there value crashes. There is no way to confine the effects to two countries. Every investor holding US bonds will want to unload them and that will lead to a price crash and spike interest rates causing a global recession. Everyone holding a US treasury will lose money as a result and people will remember who cost them a fortune. What happens if the US refuses to honor its debt is that the world will be reluctant to buy US treasuries and the cost of borrowing will rise sharply and many will no longer want to buy US treasuries at any price or interest rate.
