Don’t see why Iran can’t talk a little shit while being shitted on anyway right? Let’s just get WW3 started so I don’t have to pay my bills, go to work, and deal with humanities stupidity, I think we overstayed our welcome here on earth.goaway

Re: Iran says can destroy U.S. bases "minutes after attack"
The vast majority of chinese trade goes to the US and Brazil. The US could end all of that trade almost without firing a shot. China can easily be blockaded so that nothing enters or leaves their ports. The US can do this from well over a thousand miles away. Short of a nuclear attack China can do nothing about it.

Yes, the US would face economic hardship, but Americans would suddenly find endless jobs as industry ramped up to record levels. The US is no slouch. It is still the number 1 manufacturer in the world. The US has vast amounts of natural resources of every kind. In a war the oil would be drilled, the rare earth mines would quickly be reopened. The steel mills would fire up again.

Economics really mean nothing at all in a total war. Every soul works for the cause and all resources are rationed. Money is only needed to buy things from overseas. Allies can barter for that. Some of my iron ore for some of your missiles.

China would be left with noone to sell anything to. Suddenly all that wealth they loaned to the US would be gone from the books. No minerals from Australia. Their only option would be to ramp up their war manufacturing. But, how could they build any ships to break the US navy stranglehold. It takes months to build a ship, it is exposed. A single long range missile can easily sink a half finished ship and thus screw up that ship building dock for months.

China can easily take S Korea and Taiwan. Yet, there is little strategic gain besides more manufacturing capability.

In such a scenario this leaves West Asia as the battleground. China will have to move its large forces across vast distances of its western mountains. Perfect for the long range interdiction that the US excels at. How many fragile bridges and tunnels are used in Chinas thin western road and rail network?

Likely, North Korea will be used to help build strength in the East, so it will not be a factor in the main theatre. Pakistan sides with China and faces off against India who is a real threat to China otherwise. Turkey, the rest of nATO and Europe, probably along with Canada and Australia face Russia and China in the neighborhood of Syria.

Probable outcome: China and Russia lose. China is left wrecked for decades as the US denies it the ability to become what it was before. The US and friends rule the Earth for another 50 years.

Yes America can do that but they are more smarter than that.
Baby steps is the key
at first devalue the $ so the chinese product would be so cheap that its leaves them with no profit.
US made products would become more affordable
