My point being a war with China is unlikely since they have nukes.
I would say that the economics is the biggest reason why China and the United States won't go to war. The United States and China are too co-dependent on one another economically for there to be a war between the two. China holds a lot of US debt (over $1 trillion, or about 7% of US debt) and they wouldn't want that to be completely erased and China needs the American market to buy their cheap goods. The United States needs China as an investor in its debt for funding and needs cheap Chinese goods to fuel their consumer oriented economy.
