I think its the isolated Westerners that are afraid this time around and probably Russia because the West is building up and antagonizing Russians. China has the world by trade, it isn't any threat unless you make her a threat. Unlike the Cold War era everyone is free to travel now a days with all the tourism. Plus you don't have the all mighty Soviet Union threatening the West these days. So, no it doesn't seem as scary as the cold war era, less people with agenda's. The only threat are those who are willingly to use nukes on purpose.
If you really think China is scary, you can actually travel there for tourism and see how scary it is. It is not a threat to be honest because they don't act like NK or Corporate America. You'll know when American army starts invading China, you won't be ready and you probably won't know what happen because media. So pissing off China is not the way to go.
