The US will take no action other than urge both parties to solve their differences by negotiation.
The US cannot starve China, nor can the Chinese bankrupt the US. Even hand wringing by a few neocon US congressmen won't change these political realities.

It has long been known that the US is itching to go to war with you. Any resistance to your construction may well be what provokes the sleeping giant, and maybe they bring NATO with it. You do not need extra defense on that island. the only reason you might build it there is to start a war. News for you: the US grows almost all your wheat. You will not be able to use nuclear weapons for fear of retribution. Withdraw now, and don't say i didn't warn you.

you are somewhat off, China leads all in wheat production and is virtually a self sufficient food producing country. We are NOT! !
Shanghai, China - Consumers in China are no strangers to food scares and scandals, but the mystery of thousands of swine and poultry carcasses flooding into rivers across the country has many Chinese wondering what's going on.
In recent years, Chinese have had to worry about melamine-tainted milk powder, exploding watermelons, pesticide-laden vegetables, and antibiotic-pumped chickens. So when thousands of dead pigs started turning up in the Huangpu River in Shanghai, the city's residents were alarmed but not shocked.
Nu, a shop keeper in the former French Concession area of the city who gave only one name, said he is worried about the latest incident, particularly the water quality, but added he is always concerned about such matters.
"The river is not clean. The underground water is polluted, and not just because of this," Nu said.
The first pigs were discovered in early March upstream of the river, which supplies about 20 percent of the city's 23 million residents with tap water. But it was not until the numbers of pig carcasses reached almost 1,000 that it made national news.
