The spirit of Chinese military thinking is primarily expressed in the writings of the Chinese general Sun Tzu, in which the view of victory without battle dominates. This is more suited to a diplomat than a military man. This is in contrast to the Koran, for example, which offers warriors paradise, urges them to be extremely aggressive, creates social conditions suitable for a state of war, and so on. Islam is a pure warrior race, the Chinese are not a warrior race, they fight well when necessary, but they are not a warrior race.Oh rly? Why don't you ask Korean War Veterans to tell you?
Now I will mention Vietnam. The Vietnam War was not run by Ho Chi Minh like the commies in the US thought at the time and still do, it was run by a man called "Le Duan" who was a Chinese Puppet and was largely responsible for things like the Tet Offensive and other lesser known battles that killed many Americans. Over 55000 Americans died in Vietnam and as a matter of fact the Soviets were NOT directly responsible as they in fact were pressuring Hanoi to sue for peace. It was the Chinese that kept pressing for more American dead and it was the Chinese again that supplied most of the aid and weapons that made the American defeat possible. (See "The Vietnam War Documentary by Ken Burns")
An American Four Star Admiral called James George Stavridis co-authored a book that says that the next world war will be started by the Chinese. When you see Chinese Marines advancing on Taiwanese soil you will think your statement twice.
PS: They were in their own territory.
