I agree. But I've notice a lot of people saying that they (China) would not be an 'enemy' unless we were at war with them. But only war if a Declaration was made by Congress. I don't believe that, but I'd like to hear military lawyers talk about the distinctions.

So, let’s discuss “enemies”, shall we? You are absolutely Incorrect.

Time of war. Treason by aiding the enemy can't be committed during peacetime; there must be an actual enemy for the traitor to aid. The requisite enemy designation typically requires a formal declaration of war.

I’m guessing you aren’t an attorney and don’t understand the law.

I’ll help you with definitions here.

“ hostilities (9) Hostilities .— The term “hostilities” means any conflict subject to the laws of war.”-https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/10/948a#9

We trade openly with China. They haven’t been declared an enemy by the federal govt. you are still wrong.

Show me one of the very few convictions that didn’t include an element of war or hostility. I will wait.

We have no hostilities with China. Not treason.
