China’s Strategy for Asia: Maximize Power, Replace America

China’s primary strategic goal in contemporary times has been the accumulation of “comprehensive national power.” This pursuit of power in all its dimensions—economic, military, technological and diplomatic—is driven by the conviction that China, a great civilization undone by the hostility of others, could never attain its destiny unless it amassed the power necessary to ward off the hostility of those opposed to this quest.

    China is like a skeleton wandering around trying to convince the world and itself it has beautiful strong military muscle development capable of dealing out great pain to enemies near or far. No doubt a war scare involving foreign powers will be used to get popular support behind the communist party if the economy starts to seriously cough and sputter.

    They’ll be undone with the failure of the second principle, their economy is unsustainable and is already starting to hemorrhage. The Vancouver housing market is a case in point.

      All the US has to do is stop paying their bills to China, and the Chinese collapse. Funny that. What’s that German word again?

    The Chinese empire was overturned and internally riven by civil war and bandit warlords not once but several times. The cohesion and longevity of the “middle kingdom” is a myth.
