When the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991, the Chinese Communists feared they would soon become the target of a new, ruinous Cold War. They needed a new strategy to deal with the "New World Order".

Fortunately for them, the USA was distracted by Saddam Hussein's defiant antics after his army had been unceremoniously expelled from Kuwait, the disintegration of Yugoslavia, & the Israel Lobby's obsessive, supremacist ambitions to reshape the entire Middle East for Zionism.
The Chinese Communists had their breathing space, to ponder Sun Tzu's maxims:
- "The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting."
- "All warfare is based on deception."
- "Engage people with what they expect; it is what they are able to discern and confirms their projections. It settles them into predictable patterns of response, occupying their minds while you wait for the extraordinary moment - that which they cannot anticipate."
- "Pretend inferiority and encourage his arrogance."
...& to devise their strategy.
Thus, since the mid-1990s, the Chinese Communist Party has conspired, with "Westernized" Chinese Nationalist entrepreneurs from Hong Kong & Taiwan (who've provided the smiling, acceptable face of doing business with the Communist Party & the Red Army), to tear the manufacturing (&, increasingly, the service-sector) hearts out of the USA & Europe, undermining (perhaps fatally) the entire Western economy, & bringing to their Chinese subjects a level of prosperity unknown in China's history.
Meanwhile, the Party, itself, remains an unreformed, unreconstructed, totalitarian, potentially-genocidal Mafia.
In short the Chinese Commies found a way to use Westerners' greed, & especially the greed of the West's 1%, to destroy their hated Western enemies without firing a shot.
Sun Tzu & Emperor Qin Shi Huang would be ROFL in hysterics!
