37. Oh, but you are forgetting one very major detail....
Edited on Wed May-24-06 03:57 AM by file83
...the core of our military fighting forces are currently fighting a war in the Middle East. We are heavily committed. We have a president that wants to go to war with Iran. If China attacked Taiwan tomorrow, just what in the hell do you think we could do to STOP (not just create a temporary obstacle for) the Chinese juggernaut?

The Chinese own us economically as well. Not only are they the largest importer of goods into our country, they own hundreds of billions of dollars of our debt. If we intervened, what good would that do us (assuming they didn't just crush our fleet first)?
