What's greatly amusing is those who think "US Hegemony from all corners of the world" is anything other than their patriotic little fantasy.
Dai Xu, a Chinese Air Force Colonel, is arguing for a short, decisive war with one of China's neighbors--Vietnam, the Philippines, or Japan--in order to establish sovereignty over the Pacific region without risking war with the United States.

for all anybody knows, china has over 20,000 nuclear warheads.
the have been a nuclear power since the 50's.
and historically have kept relatively to themselves. all their problems have been internal or invasions and meddling by europeans.
there is no reason to see that philosophy change.
as long as you leave them alone, they'll leave you alone.
and given americas track record against asian warriors, it's better left that way.

Remember when Red China was called Red China?
I wrote a very long time ago that Red China would become what they have become right after Kissinger and Nixon opened up relations with the US. Then after a few years most all of our Corporations started to see the advantages of producing lower quality goods and slave production. All to benefit the Uber Rich.
How many times have you bought something made in Red China and it either does'nt fit right or last as long as American made goods use to. Why? Cause nothing made with recycled materials or an unwilling work force can produce a quality product.
Now back to Red China.
Their Army is over 200,000,000 under arms. The problem for them has always been how to transport such a large force when you have no ships (troop carriers) or Transport planes to reach American soil without us detecting their advances. (But Janes has reported some disturbing stuff about what they are building)
So here is the crazy thing.
SInce we now demand products that once we could not afford as lower classes here in the states we now can have a duplicate of those products, far be it that they are of quality, but that does'nt matter as long as we have what others have.
So the Smog serves two purposes.
One is it shows the world how greed and covetousness has covered the globe and the Red Chinese are doing to themselves what we were doing in the 50's and 60's. We were breathing mass amounts of pollution. But we had a President who enacted the EPA and thank God for that.
Second, they care less about the smog that not even our Sats can't penetrate. Now that's a good thing for them for we can't see what they truly are doing.
They may own our money and may buy all the land and factories they wish here. But it does them no good unless they get their holdings.
Now my wife lived in Red China and came back with knowledge of their inner thoughts about the Whites.
They have a couple of names for us.
They first of all don't Love Us. They envy us and actually have great memories of the past unlike people in the US.
Here are a couple of names for US and whites.
The Long noses.
The white devils.
Now with a mindset like that you can visualize them wanting clean air and minerals wealth from either us or the World.
All they got to do is hack us out of existance and stop shipping us all the cheap crap we buy and the computer crazed populace would go completely nuts.
In one way they have gotten us over a barrel and it is moving ever faster to the waterfall and soon down we'll go.
I hate Communism and even the form that Red China has created. A Controlling body who has tasted the good life that riches can buy.
They will keep getting their way in other countries cause they need raw materials and oil just like Japan did when they decided they had enough of the US dictating to them where and what they should be doing.
No Country even Red China does'nt like to be told anything about their business.
We face a Great Danger not as much with them as with our own people when they can't buy anything anymore cause their money is worthless.
All is not being seen behind the Fog of China.
Also they are very secretive.
Actually they can War all they want and we won't have the Capital to protect any Country soon. We are running out of support from around the World and they all wish us to get out the Military Bases we have established.
Our time is gone as the One World Power, we need to face the facts.
The Great Babylon fell once and now the new one is on its way out also.

Agreed. I'm not assuming China is looking for a fight, merely speculating strategies and outcomes on the possibility. However; China has been making some aggressive actions. Obviously we're aware of a significant amount of Chinese cyber attacks, plus the Russians have uncovered a sophisticated global cyber spy network to which they have not been able to find the operator. Named 'Red October' I note that China is noticeably missing from the map of affected areas.
‘Red October’: Global cyber-spy network uncovered by Russian experts
The smog is so bad that it is literally off the charts. The U.S. embassy recorded levels of fine particulates known as PM 2.5 (particles less than 2.5 micrometers in diameter) as high as 886 micrograms per cubic meter. The group's measuring process normally stops at 500. Anything above 25 per cubic meter is considered unsafe, while anything above 301 is considered "hazardous." According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, "health studies have shown a significant association between exposure to fine particles and premature death from heart or lung disease." The U.S. standard for air quality is 15 micrograms of PM 2.5 per cubic meter.

So, you assume the U.S. knows what Russo-Sino are capable of, but that their opponents don't know what the U.S. are capable of? A bit hypocritical, you'll agree?
Please quote where I said such a thing? that's because I didn't. You inference is highly illogical. I did say "we" as in meaning the common citizenry. However governments have much more knowledge than we do and I will freely admit that. It doesn't hurt my feeling to not be a know-it-all.
Besides, you argue semantics here. The main point of the post was stated in my first sentence. You remember, the one where I said I doubt China wants war and this move is more for propaganda of some sort involving their citizens. You remember, don't you? The rest were some reasons off the top of my head why I didn't think war would be a good idea. Yet you choose to take debate something minor rather than discuss the actual point of my original post.
And I do not appreciate being called hypocritical. I think perhaps you need a class in basic logic before you go and embarrass yourself like this in the future.
I learned a long time ago you cannot have a logical discussion with someone who is not logical. Therefore I bow to you on this matter. You are much smarter than me. You win. I hope that helps out your ego.

China is way behind on military tech also.
Its going to take awhile though.
I don't think so. Part of the strategy is to make one believe they are behind.
