genioux Fact post by Fernando Machuca and Claude


Introduction


The essay "How Primed for War Is China?" analyzes multiple indicators that could make China more prone to initiate a major conflict, especially regarding Taiwan, while acknowledging significant uncertainties around if and when Beijing might use force.

"A powerful but troubled China is heading in a bad direction. It will take all the strength and sobriety the United States and its friends can muster to prevent a slide into war." —Fernando Machuca and Claude



genioux Foundational Fact


China under Xi Jinping is undertaking massive military buildup and modernization while adopting aggressive stances on disputed territories, leading experts to examine risky shifts in factors like its political decision-making structure, expectations of power decline, and calculus of the regional military balance that historically correlate to belligerence.



Top 10 Relevant genioux Facts



  1. Territorial disputes are becoming less amenable to peaceful compromise, and Beijing grows anxious about permanently losing control of territories like Taiwan.
  2. With military power and optimism rising, Beijing likely increasingly believes it could achieve objectives through force.
  3. Faced with demographic, economic and strategic declines, China may turn to aggression to forestall deterioration in its relative power.
  4. Xi's unilateral rule concentrates decision-making and reduces institutional checks against rash actions.
  5. Beijing draws uncertain lessons from Russia's struggles in Ukraine that could potentially reinforce feelings of threat.
  6. The layered economic, technological and diplomatic campaign by the U.S. and its partners risks provoking rather than deterring Beijing.
  7. Rapid erosion of Beijing's credibility regarding its promise of peaceful reunification alarms China.
  8. The advanced capabilities and sophistication China's forces have built towards a Taiwan contingency far outmatch Russia's situation.
  9. Much hinges on Beijing's perception of American resolve and ability to intervene decisively.
  10. Washington must balance deterrent strength with restraint regarding actions that could spur preemptive Chinese aggression.



Conclusion


While predictions remain enormously complex, assessments grounded in historical precedent offer little reassurance about stability as China's circumstances foster greater temptation towards violence.
