England expects every man to do his duty:Horatio Nelson 1805 (so i guess that means the scots,irish and welsh can stay at home and have all the booze and girls to themselves,sounds good to me)

Obviously there is a big problem with Taiwan but saying the word 'taiwan' is like saying "WHO WANTS TO FIGHT!" on this forum
Outside of that it is too speculative to say anything. No American in 1955 thought our biggest wars in the next 50 years would be fought in Korea, Vietnam, and Iraq.

Even today China is very strong and many consider that USA would avoid conflict with it. The reason for this is that there would be no victors.
China is too big to be invaded like IRAQ and this war would be extremely costly in terms of finances for USA.
Then both are Nuclear powers and both have ICBMs. USA has SLBM's which give it advantage but the point is that US cannot stop Chinese Missiles from hitting its cities.
Then China has huge arsenal of SRBMs, MRBMs and Cruise Missiles that would be used to pound the stationary US basis, military positions and Naval Positions. If US military intrudes deeper in to China then conflict would turn Nuclear.
The very likely tussle possible would be in case of Taiwan and they do not favour a war as well.
After 50 years, things would be lot different. Though US would develop wide range of Stealthy weapons by that time but still China would be following as well.

Maybe a war over Taiwan, or other east-asian nations...
But heck, within 50 years i'll bet China will be able to project it's military power quite easily anywhere in the world. Bizzaro-trade wars or something by then.
I'd presume EU would still be allied (more or less...) with the US. Japan and South Korea.... who knows, but probably allies.
China.... other than North Korea, I have no clue. China could make lots of friends in 50 years....
Things are gonna be tense and akward in the future, though

Thread moved to the appropriate forum...
I'll let this one stay open (for now), since it's a future scenario..
We usually don't allow any "Who's best../who's gonna win if...." threads, so please be careful with what you post in there...

"If the Americans draw their missiles and position-guided ammunition on to the target zone on China's territory, I think we will have to respond with nuclear weapons," Zhu Chenghu, a major general in the People's Liberation Army, said at an official briefing, according to the Financial Times.
On another note, as some of you know, Russia and China share a "friendly neighbourly treaty", which they say has no military nature but who can be sure. The treaty is set to expire in 2021 but may easily be renewed.
If these two nations announced a military alliance then i doubt there will be a nation crazy enough to conflict with them.[/quote]
