IF it would only be that simple , the world needs the the Strait of Hormuz , 25 % of our consumed oil passes through that area and 1 third of our liquified natural gas.

Dealing with Iran in the Strait is good practice if/when China decides to take over shipping routes through the South China Sea. Iran is just a nuisance and not worth going to war over. China on the other hand...

Ow yeah damm right , and with the growth going on in China, i wonder what they will do in the future.

I maybe sound paranoia but at some point they have such military power that they easily could start assimilating the surrounding territories.

They are already working their way into a bunch of african nations , Building infrastructure as a trade off for natural resources.

Since i play a lot of strategy based games , their tactic reminds me a lot of a tactic used called Turtling :

Turtling refers to a player who wait for the late game to make any attacks, playing defensively early on with lots of defensive structures, while focusing on economic growth. It is an incredibly fun strategy to use, as at the end of a game, a player might have an enormous base, capable of quickly creating a massive, powerful, and advanced army.

At some point Natural resources will run dry , i think non of the superpowers on the planet will just sit back and watch their nation being torn apart.
