in a 1 vs. 1 china would win without a doubt. they have over 1 billion citizens. they have enormous resources and are financially sound. they have a fantastic military. also their culture and government means they could basically attack us with everything they have. if we involved our allies, it would be extremely interesting, but i still think china would win.
If we fought it like we planned to win it, the United States. If we fight it like the Viet Nam or Gulf Wars we'd likely be on trouble. This isn't a slam against our military. It's a slam against our polititions.

USA beats china in every aspect besides military population and money. Please tell me how is their population going to invade the USA without transpiration. conventional war we have them beat hands down,nuclear war depends on defense and who strikes first. Anyone who thinks otherwise I will be glad to show you wrong.also china doesnt have a b-2 bomber like aircraft, around 2020 they will have one its estimated. look at mikes comments in his answer for more reasons. usa has the most experience in war by any country by far.
Well since Clinton gave them our missile launching capabilities when prior to this they couldn't get one off the launch pad, I'd say a war with them would be mutually devastating for both sides. China is building up their military while we downsize ours but they are not some rouge nation like Iran. They believe peace comes from power. Iran on the other hand believes Israel needs to be wiped off the face of the earth along with America and are willing to suffer collateral damage to Muslim people to this end. They are very close to fulfilling this end.
