And this is exactly why I wanted to do the scenario.
China is betting no one is willing to risk all out war so they keep pushing and pushing. The trouble is, much like we saw in the 30's until someone stands up and says "No" they'll just keep pushing and eventually everyone will wake up one morning to a real disaster and say "How did that happen?"
