China’s military is over rated and inferior to America’s.

Then by all means, start a war with China and see how you fare.

War with China risks nuclear devastation. China has some 400 nuclear weapons and 300 ICBMs. If even a hundred nuclear warheads land on mainland USA, they would wipe out dozens of cities, kill tens of millions of Americans, cause widespread disease and famine, decimate America’s industrial base, turn the country into a radioactive wasteland, and cause total anarchy.

A US victory would be a Pyrrhic victory.

China’s economy is collapsing and can never catch up to America’s.

Then you have nothing to worry about. Relax. There’s no need to “contain” China’s economic and technological rise.

From IMF World Economic Outlook projections, April 2023:

As you can see, China is doing much, much better than USA, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Japan, UK, and Canada for 2023 and 2024.

In March 2023, Goldman Sachs revised their 2023 GDP growth forecast for China to 6.0 percent.

The Chinese are ready to overthrow their government due to its poor governance and human rights abuses.

Then be happy. Your political system is intact and safe.

Latana’s Democracy Perception Index 2022 shows that 83 percent of Chinese believe their country is democratic making it the most democratic nation on earth!

Edelman Trust Barometer 2023 shows that 89 percent of Chinese trust their government.

Ash Center at Harvard Kennedy School reported that 95.5 percent of Chinese are satisfied with their government.

A UC San Diego study shows a high level of satisfaction among the Chinese across a range of aspects up to 95 percent.

A November 2019 Ipsos survey shows that 95 percent of Chinese believe their country is on the right track.

The Global Happiness 2023 survey shows that China is the happiest country in the world at 91 percent.

The statistical evidence is overwhelming. Western countries, especially the United States, can only dream of having such numbers.

China is a security threat to the world.

That’s right. That’s why more and more countries are asking to join China-led BRICS and SCO. That’s why over 150 countries, or three-quarters of the world’s nations, have signed up to BRI. They’re gluttons for punishment.

That’s why France’s Emmanuel Macron and Germany’s Olaf Scholz went to Beijing to fix trade relations. That’s why Janet Yellen wants to go to Beijing to ask China for help with US debt. These countries are quaking in their boots in fear.

Give me a break.
