Competitive Ways To Target and Weaken China Now During The War

China’s visit to Vladimir Putin in Moscow this week is already costing the Chinese State and Chinese people dearly.

Here are some of the short-term, immediate, sharp ways the United States, Japan, NATO and others in the East, such as India, can counter China militarily, politically, economically and technologically right now in 2023:

  • Militarily:
    • Increase the size and readiness of their militaries.
    • Conduct more military exercises in the region.
    • Provide more military assistance to countries that are threatened by China.
  • Politically:
    • Work together to isolate China and prevent it from expanding its influence.
    • Sanction China for its human rights abuses.
    • Work to promote democracy and the rule of law in China.
  • Economically:
    • Reduce trade with China.
    • Invest in other countries in the region.
    • Counter China’s propaganda and disinformation campaigns.
  • Technologically:
    • Develop new technologies that can counter China’s military capabilities.
    • Work together to protect their critical infrastructure from Chinese cyber attacks.
    • Develop new technologies that can promote democracy and the rule of law in China.

These are just a few of the ways that the United States, Japan, NATO and others in the East can counter China in the short-term, immediate, and sharp term.

Moreover, go after this in China now:

China is currently vulnerable economically in a number of areas, including:

  • Its reliance on exports. China’s economy is heavily reliant on exports, which make up around 20% of its GDP. This makes China vulnerable to fluctuations in the global economy, such as the current COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Its aging population. China’s population is aging rapidly, which will put a strain on its economy. The working-age population is shrinking, while the number of elderly people is growing. This will make it difficult for China to maintain its current economic growth rate.
  • Its high debt levels. China’s debt levels are high, both domestically and internationally. This makes China vulnerable to a financial crisis, such as a banking crisis or a currency crisis.
  • Its environmental problems. China is facing a number of environmental problems, such as air pollution, water pollution, and soil pollution. These problems are putting a strain on China’s economy and could lead to social unrest.
  • Its technological dependence. China is heavily dependent on imported technologies, such as semiconductors and software. This makes China vulnerable to disruptions in the supply of these technologies, such as a trade war with the United States.

These vulnerabilities could limit China’s economic growth in the years to come.
