What part of "CHINA FLAMEWAR OFFICIALLY CANCELLED" do you not

Look back on
history, though China had the most powerful navy and army
since the 10th century, we did not want to conquer the whole world.
Only the whites would go all around the world robbing and killing.
I'm not Chinese. Not remotely so. I do, however, know for a fact that
China was practicing an active policy of imperialism until fairly
recently in modern history. The emperor (take note of the term)
himself sovereign of a global dominion which included Europe, as
dynastic literature tells us, and with the exception of a brief period
of isolation during the 16th and 17th centuries China was as
as they come.
Prosperity of China is indeed great. At least we
would not turn into
another superpower that invades another country thousands of miles
Perhaps because you're too busy oppressing your own people.
