I didn't say anything about wiping China off the face of the Earth, those are your words. (1) My fight is with the CCP, noone else and the PLA just happens to be the appendage of thr CCP that would have to be sliced off. Why are you apologising for China? (2) Do you have any idea what that nation has become? School yourself and you may see why this world with China going at the pace it's going is going to end up as a factory for the CCP. Capitalism might not be perfect but whatever monstrosity of a system they've Frankensteined together is pure indifference, it's no better than Hitlers national socalism and the CCP are no better than Hitler. Yet they're winning and no one has the balls to challenege them before they make half the world an indifferent factory for their gain. Go catch up on what China has become cause I can't take anyone seriously who apologises or gives them the benifet, covid or no covid, if this was 2019 my opinion would still only very minorly be changed. Covid infact, at least brought light to the CCP for the world to see the shit thry go on with.
(1) Sadly, each war hits the leadership and the rich and mighty last. The first victims of war on both sides will be the normal people, the poor, the normal working people. So no, even if you have to pick a fight with the CCP, war is the worst way to do that.
(2) Actually a lot better compared to the time of the great leap forward and cultural revolution. People in China are *a lot* better off since then. Many have improved economically and built themself a good life. They have a lot more personal freedom to do what they want, because the economical hurdles to do that have reduced. I don't say everything is great over there. But things have never been better for the chinese people.
