You're close, but you missed an important part there. China needs the U.S. to buy what it manufactures. Some people think of that as "The U.S. needs China's cheap labor", but that's backward thinking... and usually "U.S.-centric" thinking.

Honestly, the U.S. debt could be covered without China's help - but they get the best interest rates from the Chinese, who are well-known for their long-term planning. China could easily prosper without the interest on U.S. loans, but they KNOW that keeping the U.S. government happy is a good idea - because they make quite a lot of their money from the U.S., by selling them products built in China.

And yes, it's very unlikely for either country to try and damage the other, right now. They simply make too much money off of each other for either of them to think of things like "war". (Which is probably a good thing, but some days I have doubts...)

@aman3003 I don't think that China would ever try to obliterate the US, nor the other way around. The US needs China to invest money in the American government, China needs the interest from the US investments, the US needs China for cheap labor or the prices would skyrocket here, etc.

...plus I don't want there to be a Sino-American war because I'm Chinese American. :(

So don't worry about that for the time being. :)

Feel pity for us, for we are governed by f***ing idiots.

@aman3003 Well there'll be a lot less jokes to be made. We shall miss you friends, also because if China becomes more powerful than the US any time soon, We're screwed thanks to Tony (Tony Abbot is the leader of Australia, yes I know I've got a Welsh flag but I am Welsh-Australian and I just moved back and haven't remembered to change flag)

You know, American people and businesses own 30% of our debt, China only owns 8%, it really makes me mad when people say "China owns us." But 8% of a 17 trillion is still a lot of money....
