    China is now in the midst of a rapid development process, all based on emulating the US and becoming like it. It has a rapidly developing middle class, a capitalistic system in most economic areas, and is trying to institute US-style legal and social systems. However, unlike the US with its fascist government, the government in China is socialistic. That's one basic difference. Also, China has over four times the population of the US. Both face threats from Islamic radicals. However, China is a non-religious culture (thank god), while the US has a culture steeped in fundamentalist religious delusions. China does not seek to rule the world, while the US does want to rule the world. China believes in modesty, harmony, and hard work; the US believes in boasting, aggressiveness, and hardly working. China holds that Taiwan is a part of China; the US holds that Taiwan should be free of mainland domination.

    There are many, many differences between the two countries and cultures. China has a 5,000 year culture and tradition; the US is a newcomer. The US is spendthrift, up to its eyeballs in debt, while China holds close to a trillion dollars of US securities. China needs the US to consume what it produces so it can become richer, while the US needs China's money so the government can lend the money to consumers to buy Chinese goods.

    Can these two ever be allies. Well, they are sort of allies now. China lends money to the US so the US can prop up its failing economy. The US doesn't want a belligerent North Korea to challenge South Korea, so China is helping the US there; and China doesn't want a militaristic Japan, so the US is helping China there. The US needs Chinese consumers to buy its products and prop up its economy, so there are numerous US companies doing business in China--there's a Macdonalds on just about every corner in the large cities and the people are getting fat and obese like they are in the US. In ten years, China will have as many cars on the road as the US.

    Now, if you mean will or can China and the US be military allies, that is a different question. Who are they going to ally together to fight? Europe? India? Who else is there? I'd say that instead of allies, they can be friends in friendly competition, but with entirely different aims and cultures.

    Watch what happens with Iran. Iran supplies oil to China and Russia. If we go after Iran without a lot of protest from China then we are allies with them and will likely guarantee that the oil still flows to them. Otherwise this will become a proxy war much like Viet Nam, with us backing Israel to do the dirty work and China supplying the Iranians. Either scenario is asinine.

    No, US is and can be allies with Britain, Turkey and Israel because the leaders come from the same race. China is allies with Russia, Iran, Korea, and some other countries will later join them.

    They should. Both are Republics.

    The current US administration is moving us closer to the Republican philosophy of China, especially on rights and freedoms.. However, the Chinese administration needs to make some changes to move closer to US philosophies, also, especially on human rights.

    If we can meet in the middle it would be great to be allies. Although many US citizens need time to 'get used to it', being the true Republic they think they aspire to be.

    They could and should become allies. But there is a strong element in the USA that profits from convincing the American people that China is an enemy and that we need to spend billions on bombs and airplanes to counter the threat.

    They already are economically. If China leaves Taiwan alone we probably would be militarily also. The Taiwan issue is a sticking point right now politically
