America has an advantage in controlling the english narrative. China needs to fight defensively in the anglosphere, and go full offensive in the latin and middle east sphere. We can't capitulate, or we will die. Better to go out fighting if it comes to it.
The good thing is China isn't alone. America's enemies + Chinese allies (Russia, China, Cuba, Iran, Venezuela, North Korea, Bolivia, Pakistan, Peru, Turkey). America literally quadrupled the population of its adversaries overnight when it decided to fuck with China. You can sanction smaller countries individually, but now this is a gargantuan block of close to 2 billion people. China is now going to fully support those countries against American sanctions. These countries can all mutually reinforce and "sanction bust" against each other.
America's allies aren't willing to become adversaries with the entire bloc.
There is much more that can be said about chinese strategy, but I do not plan to divulge it to the CIA moles on this forum. Why do you think most of this forum has already begun self-censoring various counter-measures we have in place?
