They are still spreading it like wild fire and many Asia leaders and so called intellectuals and analysts are lapping it up like honey without thinking what the stuff is. I am talking about the myth that China is going to start a war with the USA, and underlining this silly myth is the assumption that the Chinese are stupid and did not know that such a war would invite the termination of the Chinese civilization by the American nuclear arsenal that have enough nuclear warheads to wipe out China hundreds of times over. How would supposedly thinking and clever people be blinded by this dastard truth, that any country, including Russia and China, would court self annihilation in a nuclear war with the Americans and any sensible leader would avoid a war with the Americans at all cost, unless being forced to do so?
Nevermind, the myth has been spoken too long and is now part of the psyche of the unthinking Asian leaders, intellectuals and so called analysts. They forgot that the Chinese too have common sense, the North Koreans too, that they would not invite total disaster to their country and people by having a war with the Americans. But the simpleton leaders and pseudo intellects and analysts would be harping at this silly notion till the cow comes home.
China would want to replace the Americans as the world hegemon or at least the Asian hegemon, and China would do so to attack American military forces, and stupidily these ‘thinkers’ forgot to think a bit further, that it would mean China’s own destruction. Now why would China want to do so when it does not need to start a war and already gaining influence and recognition as a superpower that would overtake the Americans in the long run, if there is no war and China could continue to develop and grow peacefully through trade and infrastructure development all of the world?
This is not the only reason why China would not want to have a war to replace the Americans as the Number One super power. The unthinking ‘thinkers’ too knew that China had no reason to do so and they would give all the real reasons why China would be courting death for doing so. Their reasonings in this area are logical, at least they are not completely dumb and blind. The Chinese military is decades behind the Americans in sophistication and destructive power. And a war with the Americans would likely see the Americans triumphant or at least the Chinese forces would be defeated. How then and why then would a militarily weak China want to challenge and start a war with the Americans? Silly logic isn’t it? Only dumb thinkers and analysts could keep on screaming that China is the expansionist and aggressive power that would start a war with the Americans.
What is the truth? What is China doing and what are the Americans doing all over the world? The Chinese are building infrastructure all over the world to facilitate transportation and trade. The Americans are building military bases and forming military alliances all over the world, including conducting provocative war games at the doorsteps of targeted countries. And the Americans are engaged in wars for the last 5 decades all over the world, including now with their mighty military presence in the wars in the Middle East. How much of these are not spoken, or blind to the dumb thinkers and pseudo analysts?
China is progressing very well and getting richer and stronger without the need for war. China needs peace to progress, to get rich and bring a better life for its people and for the people of the world through trade and investment, not through wars. And when China is rich and prosperous, when China is the richest nation in the world, why would China want to start a war with the Americans to destroy everything that it has built and achieved? What kind of foolish thought is that?
If there is a war between China and the US, it is likely to be provoked by the Americans in desperation to cling on to their Empire and to continue to be the Number One hegemon in the world by military might. China is rising, by economic and peaceful means. Not by military might and the need for war.
It is time to put an end to this silly western myth perpetuated by the West and continued to be spread by silly Asian leaders and so called intellectuals, thinkers and analysts, that China is set to want to go to war with the Americans. China will rise peacefully and needs peace to rise peacefully, to be the richest nation on earth. War will destroy everything, will put an end to the China Dream.
