China isn't interested in invading countries across the world.

"China isn't interested in invading countries across the world."
Er, Tibet? Wars in and with Korea, ROC, India, Soviet Union, Vietnam et al. Attempt to press ridiculous territorial claims to the entire South China Sea is just the most recent belligerence from China.
The first thing China wants is borders and regional influence back where it used to be, before the weakness of the nineteenth century. Hence controlling Tibet and pushing India back a few miles in the Himalayas. In the long-term, Taiwan back...(South China Sea comes under both headings).
Chinese people do not respect their government. They're apathetic and ambivalent towards it. If you ask them about something the government did bad they will shrug and say "What can you do?". They basically are inclined to ignore the government provided their life is ok to good and they feel their children's' lives will be better than theirs.
