    If there is another BIG war I think it will be different. Instead of the victors winning and then just leaving instead the winners will take everything possible from the countries that are the losers. That would include the land itself I think. The indigenous population will be killed, enslaved, or banished.

Who really benefits from that happening......not China, not Japan........

    I read not too long ago that Europe is now the largest consumer of goods from china, and not the u.s. anymore.

    If (and it is a big if) the USA ever did collapse then every other first world nation would also suffer greatly.

    China is buying up property and companies here in the CONUS at an alarming rate. What better way to hedge against loosing exports than to own companies and property in other countries.
