1. China needs the US. The US doesn't need China.

10. China is our biggest trading partner

We both need each other or we wouldn't be each other's largest trading partner.

13. To instantly pull away from China is not realistic for many businesses

To a crash and burn, go bankrupt type of businessman like Trump it might make sense, but in the real world of contracts, equipment, tooling and supply chains it isn't that simple.

15. lol

China's economy is more than 25% larger than the US economy (on a PPP basis), and exports to the US represent less than 4% of China's GDP.

3. It certainly would take China out of the future supply chain.

What CEO would recommend moving anything to China for production in the future?

5. The question isn't can China weather such a storm

It's can the U.S. companies that invested in China to make their products weather the storm. It boils down to hurting businesses not governments.

6. China is a mystery and anyone that thinks they can predict their strategy is just

pulling scat outta the air.

Those people don't surrender easily and know how to cook dirt to live on.

We are playing with someone that is a unknown, imo.

8. There's gonna be a lot of hard lessons learned over the next year or so

If it leaves China an economic wasteland it will be worth it.

China is our enemy. Better to defeat them in a trade war than a hot one.

9. That doesn't sound like good logic to me

How does leaving China an economic wasteland make it less of an enemy? Read a little history about Germany and how they were left an economic wasteland after the WW1.

12. I'm taking the lesser of two evils approach.

A conflict of some sort is inevitable over control and domination of the Pac Rim. I'd just rather mitigate as many deaths as possible.
