"FOR MEGAN C. or ANY Expert XXXX PLEASE" Hello Megan. Megan, as you can see in the following link, you already explained why China would not want to hurt The United States: http://www.justanswer.com/finance/81yuh-true-china-s-domestic-growth-stability-boosted.html But I was wondering about Russia. There has been some talk in the news that China and Russia might cyber attack the United States or cause an electromagnetic pulse in the United States that would send the United States back to The Stone Age. But doesn't Russia have reasons for NOT wanting to hurt the United States as well? For example, doesn't Russia have the United States to thank everytime someone in Russia can use a Mastercard, VISA, or American Express, and wouldn't it hurt Russia if they were unable to do this? Are there any other reasons? In fact, if anything like that would happen to the United States, wouldn't it also hurt Middle Eastern countries and OPEC as the United States would be unable to buy oil and gas from them? Thank you.
