How's that work? You get abuse in one city so an entire financial trading union spanning dozens of countries should fail? It's hard to call the EU racist when it's made up of countries that only stopped going to war with each other for being French about 65 years ago. China and the US are in a symbiotic, or possibly parasitic depending on how cynical you are, relationship. They both rely on each other to much to come to blows. Basically globalisation makes it to expensive to wage war on anyone, no one wins and you don't get your cheap crap anymore. Also the second or third biggest holder of debt for the US is England and we're a much easier target.
