No kidding, one is ruled by a deceptive totalitarian bent on global hegemony and the impoverishment of others, and the other one is Trump defending against that. With one hand tied behind his back. By the Democrats.

A capitalist country and a communist country, each as top-dogs of a huge block of nations in a drawn-out conflict. Where have I heard that before.

I don't see it. Unlike the Soviets/CPSU, which strived for world domination under ideological Socialist banners, the Chinese CP simply wants to stay in power by any means possible - including even turning its own economy into a growing capitalist powerhouse, ideology be damned.

So what? And how is China supposed to be able to project military power beyond their borders? Have they ever deployed military anywhere? This would be a very uneven division. On one side a military power on the other side a manufacturer of cheap consumer electronics.

I don't like either option, but China under the CCP is a lot worse.

Communism only works until they run out of other people's money and people to mass murder.
