China - The US: inevitable war?Watch
- China and the United States are too dependent on each other. The Chinese make extensive use of American technology, while Americans have a debt to the Chinese authorities, which has intensified after the economic crisis in 2008, when they took out major loans
- War is a heavy burden for the economy, which is why it is more profitable for states to cooperate with each other than to fight
- the key thing to understanding this matter is the Chinese culture, which according to the Confucius teaching emphasizes peace and non-violence. This is the first rule of Chinese to solve problems without fighting
I definitely think that we should be more realistic and think about international policy in critical way
But - proxy wars, trade wars, diplomatic wars, etc. etc. = yes, they are already happing and will escalate and continue in the years to come.
As is America v RussIa etc .....
No win situation
As for ones own opinion i'm unsure if a war would break out however an accidental one is rather likely and the prospect for escalation is off the scale. Whilst america has been developing its air sea battle doctrine the Chinese have enough ASBM, LBCM, MRBM etc. to cause immense damage to americas fleets and bases. equally if the americans try and attack any targets in china there is a very real possibility the chinese will go nuclear as the americans will definitely attack their nuclear infrastructure.
