China today is giddy with military power to the point of mass hysteria and extremely overconfident. They're ready for war, and they're anxious to go to war. They have a military strategy of attacking America's weak points that they believe will lead them to a quick victory, because America won't risk having its cities attacked. Nothing can be further from the truth. Generational Dynamics predicts that when China makes its move, and that day seems very close, then the war won't end until every nuclear weapon on all sides has been launched against some enemy's targets. By the end of the war, there could be some 3 billion deaths, leaving 4 billion of so survivors to carry on and try to rebuild the world.

Care to tell me how my desiring to volunteer for a Japanese Mech Assault on China leads to me being Pro-Communism or alludes in anyway to me thinking China's a victim at all?
First of all...why would you want or why would anyone want or need you to volunteer for this...something that will never happen.
China constantly elludes to being a victim of the Western Powers during the 19th and early 20th Centuries. As well as elludes to this due to the Massive U.S. Naval presence that surrounds China at sea.

You talk like the moment some skirmish starts between the U.S. and China...WHICH WILL NOT HAPPEN because China knows what is as stake....that China would all of a sudden...over a single Chinese Ship sunk...and this would only happen if China was to start hostilities....that over one ship that China would Launch Nuclear Weapons? LOL! Come ON!
You have absolutely no idea what you are talking about. A Nuclear Power would only launch Nukes as a LAST RESORT and NO COUNTRY would EVER launch Nukes at the United States unless it had a Death Wish.
First of all the U.S. has a very good ABM Missile System that is RIGHT NOW Fully Deployed as there are SM-3 ABM's on every Aegis Class Cruiser as well as being on other U.S. Ships and are also deployed in Alaska, Canada, Hawaii, Guam, parts of Japan, Midway, Iceland, Greenland....hell...you name it.
This Missile just recently destroyed a failing Satellite at ORBITAL DISTANCE and traveling at I believe either 14 to 18 Thousand MPH. That is a HELL of a lot higher and Faster than ANY Chinese Anti-Ship Missile or ICBM.
Not to mention the currently deployed to a small extent since this weapon system is still being deployed...FEL or Free Electron Laser with it's Targetting Satellite System and this Laser is Nuclear Powered and can Vaporize Multiple targets at the same time and once fully installed will constitute a Complete and Virtually Impenatrable Missile Shield as well as being capable of Offensive use.
Then you have U.S. Nuclear Forces...the most accurate, survivable and Lethal in the World that exist in VAST numbers. Along with U.S. AMB TECH. a country would have to be INSANE to launch Nukes at the U.S.
What you are saying is rediculous. China would not Launch Nukes and commit Suicide.

Of course they are preparing to Police the world. The U.S. is falling in strength and won't have the ability to maintain that position much longer, regardless. China need not even help that...it's become a self sustaining fall now.
I've been greatly amused now for awhile in watching the threads by people who actually seem to believe that removing U.S Hegemony from all corners of the world will result in a freer world. Yeah.. Right... Well, that would assume that the patterns of history going back as far as history of civilization goes for this run are turned on their head 100% to see a never before experienced world order emerge for the benefit of all.
Naww... Trix are for kids. If the U.S. isn't the only vying for global influence? Nature won't tolerate a vacuum for long. It WILL be filled. Who is currently building or rebuilding Blue Water Naval power, Strategic Air Forces and global capability of Force Projection? Why, China and Russia ...and not necessarily in harmony for the long term, either.
This is an area I can actually chuckle for once as an American. It's ONE thing *I* don't have to worry about. The U.S. never attempted a direct run against China or Russia and they won't against us...even when we're in the low position Russia has been for most of the years following their collapse. It's the REST of the world that will enjoy the tender mercies of their 'influence'. I hope they are as much better than America as some would hope...since it doesn't appear theory in the long term.

I wonder what makes China so sure the US is not going to respond to PLA aggression in the area.
That could be a costly mistake. Also, what if they attack one, and the others team up?
Maybe theres a secret deal or China really believes they can intimidate the US into not acting.
