What do the strategy experts here think the chance of war with China is? America has sent high-ranking officials to Taiwan to give Xi the fingers. Chinese military sent an unprecedented fleet of warplanes to violate the informal buffer zone. Americans reacted with veiled threats. If I was a pathological narcissist desperately searching for a distraction to sidestep a crushing rejection at the polls, I just might be tempted to fire a missile or two at some of those juicy targets.
Edit: I used a mocking reference to the leader of China, then remembered we aren't supposed to do that. Apologies.
