This sounds like more Cold War talk. China holds the most of the US sovereign Debt as it is, so would they really want to start a war?
This could be more Cabal infighting as disclosed by various insiders, or a way to push more fear into the minds of the masses. In either case gaining knowledge and not developing a limiting belief system about what this all means is key.
Beijing has not yet declared a formal air defense identification zone (ADIZ) over the South China Sea, unlike the one it established over part of the East China Sea in 2013, nor could it today enforce such a zone effectively with its current fighters.However, with its reclamation activities continuing, and the Obama Administration apparently having decided to challenge China’s claims, the US and China are now potentially closer to an armed encounter than at any time in the past 20 years.
In an article in The Commentator, he lays out the three real-world scenarios under which it could happen.
Beijing and Washington are each laying down redlines in the South China Sea, making the upholding of their claims a priority. In this, they are maneuvering themselves into a potential conflict.With no de-escalation mechanisms, and deep distrust on both sides, the more capable China becomes in defending its claimed territory, the more risks the US will face in challenging those claims.That is why each is trying to define the boundaries and set the pattern of behavior before the other does. That may not ensure that there will be a military encounter, but it steadily raises the chances of one.
