Do you believe China's history over the past 50 years corroborates your claim that "there can be opposing voices and they usually are"?
China has a long documented history of being extremely intolerant of internal arguing and disagreement
Of course, any country can change. I'm just pointing out that their recent behavior does not indicate there can be opposing voices within the government.
if your country has a history of squashing internal dissent and demanding adherence to their rule of law, how will that country keep others in check on the world scene?
but the notion that we are simply doing it for fun is ignorant of history.
It's not necessary to do so, because I don't see how the USA is alone in the first place.
Does China's involvement in Korea and Vietnam Wars not count? Do their border conflicts (Sino-Indian, Sino-Soviet, Sino-Vietnamese) not count? Does China's continued subjugations of Tibet and their encroachment into free territories (Taiwan, S. China sea, ongoing support of N. Korea) not count? I am not really trying to play the comparison game (you are), but if that's the game you're playing we should at least be fair about it.
