Why Chinese Will Start a War

From Dennis F. Poindexter
“Most rational people do not want to be at war with anyone, but they also know the difference between war and not war. Sometimes it is just a matter of intent. Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, the Russian writer, said: “If only there were evil people somewhere, insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being.” It isn’t about whether they are nice people or not. It has to be measured by what they do. They look like the devil to me. The Chinese really believe they are the world’s strongest nation, without having the most powerful military. They haven’t been growing their military steadily, but it was not a priority for them. They have been growing their businesses, especially those that related to networks of all kinds, because they believe control of information will help to equalize things between countries stronger than they are. How many countries are stronger than they are? Just one”
