Will China “Lean to One Side”?

... even though it had just emerged triumphant after the anti-Japanese war and the prolonged Civil war. Mao’s son, a fighter pilot, died in the Korean War. That was a threat on China’s border, and it reacted accordingly, much as Russia is doing now in Ukraine. This does not mean that China should ever consider intervening in the same manner.

Obviously, the situation that Russia be placed wasn’t ideal, hence why it chose to act. Returning to the lead-in question of this analysis, namely why the U.S. prioritized containing Russia instead of China, it seems as though America’s grand strategic calculus was that it would be much easier to do the first at this moment in time than the second, since the relevant leverage had already been established in Europe—unlike in Asia, where the U.S....
