I think many people are concerned that U.S. may be necessary to defeat " China militarily in a war to prove his status as a world power. I think the onus is on China to beat U.S.

If I were China , I would worry , an aging population, the population grows slowly , changing values, the massive amount of related assets in other countries too dependent on foreign (U.S. and its allies) for investment.
In the case of the war in China would face this:
Business - Americans left China would be an immediate recession .
- There would be no guarantee of repayment of a billion dollars of U.S. loans
U.S. control of Iraq, and the influence on Saudi Arabia and Kuwait (over 600,000 soldiers in the region) basically means the U.S. could starve the Chinese oil in 90 % of the world's oil comes through the Persian Gulf , like Japan in world war 2.
America receives less than 16% of its oil from the Middle East , China has no allies in North America or the troops in the region,

I think this is a mistaken view

China and the U.S. should , to adress the major problems of our century and focus on eradicating poverty, conserving resources and protecting the middle class.

if tension increased and China became aggressive
our technology (at least now) trumps theirs

numberswise they have a much larger military force (ground)
the question would be how they gonna get them here safely

our submarine service would send most of those ground forces into ocean before they got to Hawaii.

The area where we have to continue to be most vigilent is maintianing security over our proprietary technology

Chinese piracy of software etc is legendary
and as far as i can tell - continues to this day

American Companies in China need to be careful
and maintain the integrity of their proprietary technology

Chinese spying in the US is another matter
