National Review has a story out asking if war between the U.S. and China is inevitable.
China wouldn't have to go to war. At least not in a traditional sense.
All China has to do is cut us off from its manufactured goods. American store shelves would look like Venezuela's.
Imagine. No new iPhones, no new window air conditioners... no TVs, no new coffee makers or microwaves...
The American consumer would capitulate in a matter of days.
If not hours.
Fact is, China's been painting us into a corner for decades. The Chinese mindset doesn't limit war to only conventional means. And China has, for the most part, skillfully used trade as a weapon.
