"American and Chinese analysts... warned of a “tipping point” in China-US relations beyond which the two conclude conflict is unavoidable and begin preparing for war..... renowned Chinese military expert Michael Pillsbury penned a Foreign Policy article entitled “China and the United States are preparing for war.”"

I'm not sure what this article is on about. It adds to the murky information about Syria and Chinese nationals operating with ISIS or perhaps Assad or perhaps supporting BOTH sides in the current conflict? Who knows? What I do know is that the idea that China and the U.S. are preparing for war AGAINST EACH OTHER is bunk.

For as long as China hold 1 trillion in U.S. Government debt there is absolutely no chance of a war between the powers. In fact you could make the point that China is funding the U.S. war effort. What is 'murky' to me is this whole Middle East scenario. We don't even seem to really know who the 'players' are. But more scare mongering...... the point of which escapes me.

Syria, China and the U.S.

"Should we really be worried about war between the United States and China? Yes." Michael Pillsbury

Obviously the guy has no idea about finance. If there were any preparations going on the Chinese would be bailing out of Treasuries FIRST. Which would dent the USD and the Treasury market and the U.S. economy. The war would be over without a shot being fired.

China and the U.S. preparing for war?

"The remarks by Barack Obama at the University of Queensland on Saturday, delivered while he was in Australia for the G20 Leaders Summit, was a bellicose restatement that the US will use every means, including war, to prevent any challenge by China to American dominance over the Asia-Pacific."

Another pygmy.

Paris ib I take exception to your derogation of Pygmy - a fabulous race of people whose characteristic is their relative short height - by associating them with politicians.

JP - sorry I apologize to the pygmies. You are right. :-)

Chinese holdings of U.S. Treasuries fell in September, but nothing like what you would expect if there was a real geopolitical fight in the offing. What is surprising is that Japanese holdings also fell by quite a lot. Opens up questions of just where this expected outflow of Japanese capital is likely to be headed, IF it ever happens.
