The Deadly Dance of the Eagle and the Dragon: Part 5 The Chinese Strategy

We can use the nine containment points America needed to act upon to assess Chinese progress with its' strategy:

Today’s Chinese military parade, ostensible in celebration of victory over Japan, can only be viewed as a clear declaration of national intent.
