try be easy on me since im not too knowledgeable about other countries political stance on america or whatever but do you reckon an emerging superpower such as china would try to take advantage of an american civil war? on a scale of 1-10, how likely would this scenario be if a civil war occurred?

Possibly but not in the near or midterm.
The key linchpin to the US's superpower status is not just its impressive military but its vast network of alliances, something China has little hope of recreating unless it seriously changes its ways. Equally there isnt really much evidence saying China wants to be the global superpower that America is. a seat at the top decision making table, sure. All the costs that come with being a hegemon? Nope.

ohh interesting. i agree with you. i definitely dont see china recreating the same level of global influence that america has managed to spread. most people dont know the name of any province or city within china. however, you ask anyone off the street to name a state or city in the US and theyll be able to tell you multiple. this shows the level of influence the US has on other countries
