#1 Rising China isn't gonna be directly or indrectly "contained/isolated" by the US-
Allies widout a fight - its going to become assertive = MilPol aggressive all along the periphery of the "First Island Chain", "Second", + IOR.
E.G. ITS NEW "SAMSHA/SAMSHE CITY" [floating
province"] IN SCS = CHINA QUIETLY BUT FIRMLY OVERTLY T-E-L-L-I-N-G, N-O-T ASKING, THE PHIL + VIETNAM [ASEAN, NAM] THAT THE SCS IS "NOT THEIRS" FROM NOW ON. ANY + ALL CURRENT, FUTURE CLAIMS WILL BE DEALT THRU THE PLA ANDOR ITS CIVIE SUB-ENTITIES.
IOW, don't physically or politically challenge, oppose, or otherwise denigrate China's territorial claims unless you are de facto willing to militarily fight for it. SHUT UP, BUTT OUT + STAY OUT OF CHINA'S TERRITORIES, OR FIGHT!
Lest we fergit, 9-11 + WAR FOR OWG-NWO = WAR FOR ANTI-STATUS QUO = ... IFF YOU DON'T GET OUT OF THE WAY NICELY VOLUNTARILY, YOU WILL BE PHYSICALLY FORCED OUT THE WAY, VIOLENTLY ANDOR MORTALLY AS PERTINENT.

That pretty much sums it up. Hey, maybe if we offered the ChiComs the Sudentenland or Czechoslovakia they would play nice.
