China has always seen the world from the long view. It still wants to spread communism all over the world.
Apparently the Op has forgotten about Pol Pot and China's backing the Khmer Rouge.
Now this innocent and pure predatory nation is trying to gain control of the South China Sea and seize ports and trade routes over the world by predatory lending.
Poor China!

The Boxer rebellion occurred because the Chinese got worried about Britain & America flooding China with Opium. Britain and America to Opium from what's now known as Afghanistan & India to China in an attempt to get the whole country (China) hooked on Opium. The Chinese rebelled and beat the shit out of Britain & America, but conceded a lease of the Hong Kong territory for 99 years.
"By the Convention of 1898, the New Territories together with 235 islands were leased to Britain for 99 years from July 1, 1898. With this expansion of territory, Hong Kong's population leaped to 120,000 in 1861 and to more than 300,000 by the end of the century."! (google) but you need to know America was up to its neck in that stupidity.

U.K. navy returns to Indo-Pacific amid concerns over assertive China

Experts believe this is more than "window dressing" and a genuine effort to support allies in the region and enforce freedom of navigation and promote democracy.!!!!

In late May, the recently built aircraft carrier Queen Elizabeth will leave Portsmouth and, after exercises in the Mediterranean Sea and Indian Ocean, will head a flotilla of mainly British ships, known collectively as the Carrier Strike Group, through the South China Sea, a strategically important waterway largely claimed by China but disputed by smaller regional nations......



A US defense report estimates China has the world's largest naval fleet and is churning out new ships faster than ever. The US continues to have a technological edge, but China is becoming more capable close to home.



Updated: 21 Feb 2021

Last week, France deployed a nuclear attack submarine in the South China Sea, in line with US President Joe Biden's call to mount a multilateral challenge to China.

Other European powers such as the United Kingdom and Germany are also expected to deploy warships to the area in what increasingly looks like a concerted Western pushback against China's maritime ambitions.

This thread was about the invasion of Asia by England Europe and America, Russia too of course. There is little history of China Vietnam or India, or South east asia invading elsewhere, although Indonesia could be a questionmark. Japan took a leaf out of Europe's book after all, did it not?
yes Faragofan
"@rob Incidentally Britain is also 'deploying' in the Black Sea this month"!

I know Putin has already fired a ship to ship missile across there bows, fired another one in the sea of japan too
