The following is a list of China’s current claims against other countries, all of which it has made painfully clear it is willing to go to war over: Afghanistan Afghan province of Bahdashan (despite treaty of 1963, China still encroaches on Afghan territory). Bhutan Bhutanese enclaves in Tibet, namely Cherkip Gompa, Dho, Dungmar, Gesur, Gezon, Itse Gompa, Khochar, Nyanri, Ringung, Sanmar, Tarchen and Zuthulphuk. Also Kula Kangri and mountainous areas to the west of this peak, plus the western Haa District of Bhutan Brunei South China Sea especially Spratly Islands Burma China claims large areas of Burma on historical precedent (Yuan Dynasty, 1271-1368). There are unspecified border disputes with Burma. Cambodia China has, on occasion, claimed parts of Cambodia on historical precedent (Ming Dynasty, 1368-1644) India Aksai Chin (part of Jammu and Kashmir), Demchok, Chumar, Kaurik, Shipki Pass, Jadh, and Lapthal Shaksgam Valley, South Tibet (part of India-controlled Arunachal Pradesh), Trans-Karakoram Tract Indonesia Parts of the South China Sea. Japan Parts of the East China Sea, particularly the Senkaku Islands. Also, on occasion, the Ryukyu Islands, on the grounds that the completely independent Kingdom of Ryukyu was once a vassal state of China. The Kingdom of Ryukyu terminated tributary relations with China in 1874. Kazakhstan There are continual unilateral claims by China on Kazakhstan territory, despite new agreements, in China’s favour, signed every few years.

with some even going as far as to say they "hope" the protests spread to mainland China and that the Communist Party is "usurped"

The Chinese people have seen the transition from folk medicine, to Western medicine increase their lifespans by decades and their standard of living keep getting better and better
Sorry I have to disagree with you here. The more Asian cultures use western medicine, food, etc, the worse their health and lifespan will be.
I worked for a Chinese man once. He was probably one of the smartest men I have ever met. He ran a Chinese restaurant. Often I would see people come in with money and give it to him, always very very happy. I finally asked his daughter what was up with that. She told me he was a medicine man and cured all these people from cancer. Not sure if he really did, but they all looked alive, well and happy.
