Can China sustain its build-up long term?I can count at least 3 on the board itself.
Did you forget that China is yet to pull back its troops from border ? Its build-up is like Russian build-up around Ukrainian border. Its like saying Ukraine and Russia can become friends just because each side has stopped firing bullets.
PLA is prepared to attack us at any moment notice currently. First let them pull back from border first.
Second, even if lets say, 10 years from now somehow our relations with China do become neutral, it will be thousand times better to have better relations with USA (taking that Russia is now history), than that with China.
By the way, people have been saying this about how Russia is now history only to find to their detriment that it is not true.
