I'm in America and, I have to say, I haven't heard anything about attacking China, guys...  :)
I think the U.S. would try pretty hard to stay out of a war with China.
I know most people won't believe this, but the U.S. generally isn't interested in picking fights for no reason...
O.k., don't all freak out at once, please! :)

Hah.  The only possibility of war between China and the US would be because of the aggressive nationalism of the Chinese people in both Taiwan and China.  Taiwan declares itself independent, then China attacks and the US is drawn because of the long-standing cold-war era defense treaties.  Hopefully neither China nor Taiwan is stupid enough to bring about a situation which could result in worldwide economic catastrophe (because everyone would stop trading with China, which would completely derail it's economy), and / or if the US intervenes, massive loss of life and potentially nuclear armageddon.  

The same question, StephenLong, could be asked about what would you (if you were Taiwanese) do if China attacks your country?  I mean, lots of Taiwanese consider Taiwan their own country, it has been independent of the mainland in every respect (government, military, economy) for 50 years.  If you were Taiwanese, and your president foolishly declared independence and then China invaded, what would you do?

What everyone would do, defend themselves.
