U.S. is the modern Roman imperial. Never think they will treat you as equal to themselves. Their demoracy is only for their own people. Talking is cheap. Do you think China put itself in danger when the Japanese invaded China 50 (roughly) years ago? China has to stand up and guard the interest of all Chinese people. Why do you think the fight will be limited to Chinese land? Why the Americal soldiers will fight and endange their own lives? National interest! Even the poor people will have a share of the pie.
