China starts a war with Malaysia, Taiwan, philippines, Brunei, Vietnam, Japan, etc. Due to starting the conflict their enemies expand to America and Europe, etc. as well. Russian support for China is iffy. Assume that all countries (*cough*Phillipines*cough*) have finished modernization. Who wins? Edit:Sometime 2015. Took over the Spratlys Islands. (I know. Not that believable.) The Communist Party go desperate and made this attempt to cement that they were powerful to their citizens. In this case it works. Now their citizens will follow them to hell and back. there will be no compromise. I will go to sleep right now. So if you want. You can be OP for a day and modify it if I get something wrong.
