Should China get into the private military company business?

China lacks alliances and thats a big problem. I don't have much confidence in Xi Jinping to remedy that anytime soon. I feel like the mentality of China is sooo overly fixated on doing business and trade and internal issues that they relegated geopolitics to the back burner. Sure,that works fine when the US is not actively trying to surround you.

However,when the US is trying rally a bunch of countries to gang up on you, trade and business is not gonna stand in their way. You need a few countries to stand with you.

I think most of us can plainly see that Xi Jinping is hardly a skilled diplomat or strategic commander. Instead of fighting India we should be focusing on how to avoid being surrounded by the US.

The biggest mistake China made was to think the US wasn't an adversary, the second biggest mistake was to not build true alliances with other countries.
Asking "Should China get into the private military company business" Sounds kinda funny. Don't try to comprehend , especially , a nation with different culture and values than west's by western standars. It will lead you to false conclusions. A people's liberation army as meaning is a different approach than a typical army. The point leads to ethics.

PRC has a few countries to stand with and will make many more in the future because it is determined by the productive powers that PRC is unfolding and will unfold through 21st century. US cannot surround China even in close timeline, and it's a matter of time when there will nothing to do to disrupt PRC's rising. See Trump's trade wars. It's just ticklings at toes.

Like the US and the West aren't going to blame China for any of these private armies for their actions? It's just like they don't believe any company in China is private. Why do you think the US has them? It's to deny responsibility if these private armies violate rights. They're there to do the dirty work so the US doesn't get blamed for what they do.

Official US armed forces and secret services have conducted unpunished atrocities around the world without hesitation or sensibility. But you have a point here!

Alliances are costly to maintain; not worth it, especially when one or more members become belligerent.

There is even a greater picture than that. If the US is capable to lead in cultural, ideological and economical-financial power, they won't have to use those companies to violate rights. The reason is because the US don't have the cultural, ideological and economical-financial power to control and lead their targets, that's why they revert to US rights-violating tactics. This is nothing complicated.

The cold war was a wrong war to fight, the US should have never fought that war. In that case, the US could have played all those major countries in Eurasia super continent, Africa and South American against each other, while the US Herself stays out of trouble and reap all the benefit.

All allies and friends are unstable and unreliable. Its law is like a sinusoid. When you reach the top, next you will go down. It partly explains the reason for the brotherly / ally relationship: The Soviet Union, Vietnam and Albania became hostile to China and its influence remains to this day. China needs to have good relations with the rest of the world but cannot be too good because it has the opposite effect. A military alliance is ineffective when you are too strong and the ally is too weak or each of its members has a different purpose. During World War 2, Germany-Italy-Japan was a failed military alliance. Currently, NaTo is also having many problems
