Not sure how you're excepting the Chinese. Better keep an eye on recent news wrt Taiwan. Could become a "time for war" sans xenophobia if Taiwan asserts its indepedence as a sovereign state. The difference was ideological (ie- civil war between Nationalists and Communists resulting in Nationalists fleeing to Formosa).
