    The United States would get its butt kicked for the first few months of the conflict guaranteed. Our forces would go from fighting an enemy that doesn’t have an Army, Navy, Marines or Air Force like the Chinese do. For example, when we raid compounds in Afghanistan and Iraq, night visions goggles are worn. In order to accurately engage threatens Infrared (IR) lasers are used. Our troops also wear IR strobes on their uniforms so friendly ground and air units can see them. The Taliban doesn’t have NVGs so they can’t see our guys moving at night and what they are aiming at. The Chinese do. Night time operations would need even more discipline. We go from roadside bombs to tanks and attack helicopters. Our forces would be deployed for 6-9 months then come, they would stay overseas until the mission is done which is very hard to do mentally and physically. Down the road, the US would come out on top and win. Even though the Chinese have a numerical superiority (2.8 million troops to the US 1.2 million.) we have the larger Navy and Air Force. ****, our Navy has a larger fleet of aircraft than the entire dedicated Chinese Airforce has. We own the Sea and the air.

    Militarily the US has the large advantage, however a US-China War wouldn't last very long as the US would run out of consumer goods as the US doesn't produce many things anymore.

    Push coming to shove with China, would no doubt lead to lobbing a few, or a few dozen, or a few hundred  NUKES. 

    Life would be extremely unpleasant for any survivors.

    What kind or war?

    China is already engaged in cyber war with the entire planet. I suspect the US is engaged in that war to an unknown degree.

    China has far more people for a traditional ground war, but would have trouble moving them to any battlefield outside of China.

    In the case of Nuclear war, I believe the US is better capable of delivering such weapons to the targets, but am not as informed about wither countries actual capabilities as many people believe themselves to be.

    Very messy, devastating, the Chinese army does stand a chance against the US which is why Trump didn't invade North Korea, China do not want bombs dropped right next to them and would intervene. It wouldn't last years, China and the US would just blow each other to smytherines.

    Things would get very awkward with the NBA, who seem to support China more than the U.S.
