I think the disparity in the number of English speakers in China vs. the number of Chinese speakers in the US will be a very great disadvantage in the event of a shooting war breaking out between the two countries.

In a shooting war with China, I don’t think language will be a disadvantage for either combatants militarily, because a war with China would escaled so quickly that intent would would be defined by actions and not words.

After the shooting was over, the advantage would remain equal.
