I don't know why everyone is so suspicious of China, it really is straight up ignorance.
Sure China opposes the USA sometimes, sure the USA is a pain in China's rear on the Korean Peninsula, in regards to Taiwan even our support of
But realistically,when the economic games are done, when the political debates over communism vs capitalism are finished and it get's serious, serious
to the point of fighting a "REAL WAR" China can do nothing else but side with the USA
Politics is the realm of those "Athenian Boy Lovers" (lol sorry) it's for the news, it's for diplomacy, it's to manipulate the people, for the daily
But when world changing war comes the Spartans on any side are in charge and they know full well, America vs China...there is zero in it for America,
you can never occupy China and vice versa there is no win for China to fight America, god luck with those supply lines across and ocean holding a
continent that is lush with guns and wilderness from both end it's a nightmare scenario with no actual gain
But then, just North of you if your China is Siberia, already occupied by 5 Million some odd Chinese migrant workers and nary a population of 7
Million Russians, rich in resources, your supply lines can be laid with ease your surging population of 1.5 Billion eager for new lands to exploit, no
Navy to face, the help of the USA
So if your General Wong and your forced to choose a side by two idiotic nations, who do you turn your back on suddenly? Who do you choose to remove
from your life? weaken forever? The guy next door, who's house you get to keep, who's riches you can steal, the land you can hold forever and ever OR
the Nut across an ocean where your troops will be starved where the cost of leading your troops will bankrupt your nation in a location you will never
And lets face it... a "surprise" strike on the USA a crippling blow when those missiles have to cross a vast distance vs shooting the guy next to you
in the back... the choice is obvious, America just isn't an actual threat by geography, Siberia is a ripe fruit for the picking, what you do... is
assure your borders expand.
There is just no gain for China, to expend it's riches attempting to occupy a far away land... however, the superpower on your border being gone is
gigantic, it's everything, it's the Gas, the oil, diamonds, Billions of acres of empty land that can be expanded by rail and road. One war is a
civilization killer the other almost assures global dominance. No one wants Russia on it's border if it can be avoided lol.
