Who else would China fight against other than core US allies?

Russia?

Doubt it.

Well, with the Chinese economy slowing down, what a good time to pull out the drums of war , increase nationalism and tighten internal repression.

It is plausible that China will contrive a conflict with someone who does not fight back, so it'll be against one of their less capable neighbours. It won't be Japan or the US, nor will they try to take on Taiwan. They won't press any territorial claims in India because India will fight back.

If it does happen, then I feel sorry for Vietnam or any of the other nations who China is bullying in the South China Sea. Bearing in mind the China have attacked Vietnam in the past.

It's all theater to stir his base as the economy goes down the tube here in China. They are preaching to the countryside Commies before Chinese New Year. The city dwellers ignore it and think he's stupid but won't come out and say it.

They don't want a shooting war because when all those young Chinese men don't come home their parents will cry, complain and scream at the government because now there's no one to support them when they retire. The government couldn't give out handouts to the families each and every month, it would crush the RMB and put the government out of business.
