Let's check the score board.China is just a paper tiger. Yes they have men and equipment but of very low quality of both. China looks impressive on paper but that's as far as it goes.
China backed N. Korea, which defeated the US pushing us out of N. Korea after killing some 60,000 Americans and wounding a lot more in about 3 years in the 1960s.
China backed N. Vietnam for a decade in which N. Vietnam survived the largest bombing campaign in history, killed some 60,000 US GIs, probably wounded 10x as many, and pushed America out in humiliating defeat after a decade of waste in Vietnam.
China's population is 4x that of Americas. China's tech industry rivals the US. China's manufacturing is superior to the US. China's has 2-3x as many fighting forces. Our military might is roughly similar as far as Navy, Air Power, Artillery, etc. We both have enough nukes to eliminate each other.
US is 0-5 in 70 years of war fighting against inferior opponents.
This has caused significant morale problems, a broken ineffective fighting force. Want some examples? Read the news. The US has been unable to make recruitment target numbers for years, and we've continued to lower standards while focusing on "equality" nonsense versus war fighting. Look at that Navy ship that burned in harbor, from a small arson fire. Is that the poster child of competency? Our airspace was infiltrated where a Chinese balloon loitered for a week over the CONUS. More "competency" on display? I could go on.
We lost to illiterate rag tag sandal wearing gangs who had no navy, no air power, no satellites, no intelligence gathering, no manufacturing, no bases, and no real supply chains, no infrastructure, no economic strength, etc. who were using home made bombs and hand me down Mausers and AKs. In two wars...
China's economy is far stronger than the US. The US is basically teetering at default, and being decoupled as the global petro-currency. It's the end of the run for the dollar, the writing is on the wall. There are many nations joining together to form alternate trading currencies - digital, gold backed, or otherwise - b/c of the US abuses in manipulating the dollar, printing more currency, defaulting on loans, and seizing accounts. MUCH of the world is slowly aligning against the US and our corruption. China, India, Saudi Arabia, Brazil, Russia, Iran and more. This is not good, we are being isolated, rather quickly. NATO is losing power and ground too, without energy or food from Ukraine or Russia.
Most importantly, however, is our civilian and higher military leadership. They have generally proven to be corrupt, inept, conflicted interests, or a combination of these. The end result is that while our military members might be capable, their leadership is proven incapable of winning.
China has flooded our universities, our cities, flooded our streets with fentanyl, and probably has splinter cells in every city ready to strike our infrastructure. They've infiltrated our politics, literally sleeping with officials. Cripple grids, water, energy, political assassinations, you name it. Also, the US relies heavily on imports. Do you know up until recently our military jets used Chinese components?!
Do you think China is going to have "woke" policies, unwillingness to use real power to defeat enemies, inept leadership persisting? Open borders? Unable to extinguish a boat fire in harbor, or shoot down a balloon? No.
I truly do not understand where this "US will win" mentality comes from. Is it brainwashing bias propaganda? We have not demonstrated the leadership ability to win any war in 70 years. And China has defeated us twice in proxy wars...
Take the pro-US blinders off. China would curb stomp the US today. They're going to do what they want in the SE Asia, and blow our ships out of the water whilst attacking our mainland with terrorist strikes and cripple the US.
