What the hell ? The USA is giddy to start a war with China over Taiwan. They cant stop provocating, and arming Taiwan, and they've surrounded China with military bases anyway.

Hmm ? The highways / Autobahn in Germany by the nazis was a war preparation.
It also was a sort of perverse social investment. They unnecessarily refused to use technology when building the highways, just so more people would be needed, just so every german had a job.
In the first years of the dictatorship, the nazis have been focused on fulfilling their political promises, in order to silence their critics. Only afterwards the terror really started.
Even the terror against the jews didnt start immediately at full power. The Reichskristallnacht was in 1938 - the nazi regime started in 1933.

How so ? Because you dont personally believe in that ?
I would see democratization as the logical next step for China.

WTF Taiwan literally is part of the very same country. So yes, they had the same government in the past.
More importantly no matter what your opinion is - nobody has the power to stop China. All you can get is a lot of people killed. For the exact same end result.
Pretty much 100% the same as the war in Ukraine.

Oh right, the USA has insufficient military spending

The USA literally installed a puppet regime in Ukraine in 2014 so they can provocate Russia into a war with Ukraine. Relations between the two countries had been good before.
After 8 years of civil war in Ukraine, Russia decided to invade. Their two motives have been
1. The terrorization of ethnic russians in Ukraine, which is 30% of the population, by ukrainian nazis, which is already bad enough.
2. More importantly, Ukraine kept threatening to join NATO or develop nuclear weapons on their own, both with the goal to point nuclear weapons at Russia.
Blame Russia all you want for this, but without the meddling of the USA, the Ukraine war wouldnt have happened.
Likewise, the Taiwan war is only possible because of the US meddling.

To archieve what exactly ? Do you seriously believe the ukrainians are losing against the russians because they arent willing, or able, to fight ?
