Depends what you mean by empire.

All of it's land claims are based upon the days of Imperial China... If it was once an empire and it's nearly been reformed to it's former glory, then what does that make it?

Anyways I don't think the 21st century definition of empire is anything like that of past centuries.

China is an empire, just like the US is.

Whoa now, I wouldn't go as far as calling China an Empire, they aren't. At best, a top tier regional power. However, its growth indicates a path to a true Super Power if the continue on.

The US is a true Super Power and only one, infact, global power is more like it as its ability to project and plan is a global POV.

You see ... China and Russia don't even need to kill 10 million people to "win" the Afghan war in one Day.
They only need to vaporize all NATO presence in central Asia - South East Asia and the Persian Gulf ... it's much less than 10 millions , probably less than one million ....

I wonder whether NATO didn't see the Russian and Chinese missiles in the area and accidentally didn't notice their own technological / tactical and strategic inferiority ....

We really need to take the fight to our enemies. China, Iran, Venezuela, etc.

Yes, it isn't fair that other countries can't do what we can (put bases in any country we decide). However, who cares about fair? Why let another country have an advantage over us? Trump needs to take a lesson from Nixon, and show those little critters that we have the will to strike them with the US nuclear arsenal if our interests/dominance is threatened.

China/Iran/etc isn't going to upset the world order we've spent 100 years creating.

In short, war with China/Iran is inevitable unless we want to let them gain an equal footing as us (we don't, of course)

There's also this, per Isvestia:

China's approach could be similar to that used by Russia in Syria. First, they'll create working relationships with local and national Afghan government officials. Once they've established themselves in the country, they'll have a new base from which to deploy troops and conduct air strikes against the Uygur, should the need arise.

Yes, the new Silk Road, but I would guess they have more of an eye on the Uygur situation. They have spent Billions keeping the Uygurs in line.

With China occupying a good slice of Kashmir Tibit and Mongloia then they are going to need forward bases both sides of the borders if they gonna Chineseify the western regions of occupation. Central asia of the former Soviet Union is gonna be up for grabs too. All them Stan places are ripe for takeover one way or another and Beijing has been signing alsorts of deals with the rulers in areas of co

Any Chinese move westwards has at least two advantages for them, in geopolitical terms. It improves their access to Iranian oil, and it helps to obstruct Russian access to the Indian Ocean.

The Chinese are at it everywhere. They just opened their 13th Police Station in South Africa. The Chinese claim they are just local centres for South Africa's fast growing Chinese population located around industrial transplants from China but the locals see them as Chinese colonialism...........................
