I really do see how you see this but based on much historical reading of military affairs I cannot see a reliable supply train that would sustain a
move as you assert is possible today - it is just untenable at this time given many factors.
They already have it and there is not enough resources for them they need the US.
Have to disagree here as Siberia is an essentially untapped region full of resources ripe for the taking. I agree the Chinese have great political
influence in Eurasia but a full colonization is yet to occur - therefor it is classed as an untapped resource - one goes after the easy pickings first
and consolidates to absolute colonial power regionally prior to going far abroad - its just common sense.
Even if that were true the time to stop them is now before it escalates to a shooting war.
Now here we have some common ground as I do believe they need to be checked as on a chessboard.
The reason we have not attacked Iran and Syria is because they are allies with China now. Read my previous post on China warning the the US that an
attack on Pakistan will be considered an attack on Beijing. The same goes for Iran and Syria The first strategic military warning to the US in 50
years! The days of thinking China is to far inferior to the US are over. We need to face the facts. Crap China makes much of our ammo used in the
middle east and even tank and some classified parts for our weaponry etc. They have gotten us dependant of them for money and goods even for our
military we are plain stupid to be at that disadvantage to them.
Here again we have some agreement but unfortunately the public is adverse due to short term thinking and partisan politics - so yes China most likely
will attack successfully via proxies at some point in the future - who knows when - I'd guess when the economic endgame has born results.
I can even go with a 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 year time line there because we're so fragile economically all we need is one good "Katrina" or a major
terrorist attack to tip it off the cliff.
As with Russia China has to work this in a fashion where strategic weapons do not come into play against them - so direct action is not feasible at
this point - action via proxy is highly likely though IMHO.
The resulting scenario suggests economic slavery but falls short of invasion unless and until the strategic weapons are negated as a threat to their
homelands existence, other than that the game will be knife-edge in nature and they still have to tread carefully.
Full on invasion mode is not the most immediate step to be concerned with IMHO
