it would give them absolute dominance in economic terms that can´t be overcome in less than a decade.
...and your thought process is that they do not have that now?
Some are suggesting that China would not invade because it would hurt their economy, my opinion it would not as no one will cease trading with them, just talk.
Trump tried to curtail and the world called Trump an idiot, China had a outbreak at a major port and rather than remove thousands of workers - which they can do but the west cannot - they allowed the port to run at minimal levels and the world cried, now we can speculate whether that was intentional or not, but we cannot argue that everyone saw the effect on world trade.
