One of the main reasons for wars isn't about gaining territory, but about securing markets for a countrys manufactured goods (which was why America was so keen for the British Empire to break up after WW11, and the fact that Britain was massively in debt to them), China already has the major markets for western goods, the U.S.A. and many European countrys are already massively in debt to China which is a why she can apply enormous pressure on the west that could actually end in war.
